Conservative muckraker James O’Keefe became a Republican hero last year with his videotaped sting of poorly trained ACORN workers acting incredibly stupid. Well, this is the type of behavior you get from a Republican hero:
James O’Keefe, the conservative filmmaker who was behind the undercover operations that led to the ACORN scandal last year, has been arrested with three others for allegedly trying to bug the New Orleans office of Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) yesterday.
One of the three men arrested with O’Keefe is Michael Flanagan, the son of acting U.S. Attorney Bill Flanagan in Shreveport, LA. Now that gets my antennae twitching.
Something tells me this O’Keefegate scandal is going to be at least as big as ACORN’s, even if it doesn’t get the same sort of media attention or congressional scrutiny. (Tip to reporters: follow the money.)
