Charges reduced in alleged tampering of Landrieu's office
Federal prosecutors have filed reduced charges against conservative activist James O'Keefe and three others accused of trying to tamper with the phones in Sen. Mary Landrieu's New Orleans office.
A filing Friday in U.S. District Court charges them with entering a federal building under false pretenses, a misdemeanor. They had been arrested Jan. 25 on felony charges.
The new charges are contained in a bill of information, which often signals a plea deal.
O'Keefe gained notoriety by masquerading as a pimp in a stunt that embarrassed the ACORN organization.
In the Landrieu incident, O'Keefe has said he was investigating complaints that constituents couldn't reach the senator's office to comment on her support for health care reform.
