Charges reduced in alleged tampering of Landrieu's office

Associated Press
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.

He's sounds like one of those little losers who joined the Hitler Youth in Germany in the 1930s.

This is a scary little guy that reminds me of a loaner in search of trouble. He's one of those people in high school that you just knew was up to no good and someone that people stayed far away from. Perhaps this is what led him to a life of Republican Distruction. He deserves to be under the jail, but a renegade conservative judge (a strict constructionist no doubt) will surely slap him on the wrist.

Fascist is the "F" word in American politics. Here is a sample "Feature / Benefit Poem inspired by a former Bureau Chief at the Federal Communications Commission

Wear this gold star, Jew'
So we can see who you are,
Board this rail road car,
Your campaign for president
Is going to Babiyar.

The fascists confuse reality. When it comes to confusing reality, James O'Keefe would have fit right in with Goebbels and Himmler. Whatever O'Keefe's actual plan that day at the Senator's office, it had nothing to do with journalism.

O'Keefe is not a journalist.
