Tap Water Gate

"I never made it all the way through 'All the President's Men'. What happens?" -- James O'Keefe (via pittswiley on Twitter)
The FBI has arrested the white pimp, otherwise known as James O'Keefe. O'Keefe was among four men who created a ruse to enter the New Orleans office of Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.), saying they needed to repair her telephones, according to court records unsealed Tuesday.

I wonder if their repairman costumes were any better than O'Keefe's pimp costume? And does O'Keefe own enough costumes for a Village People cover band? But I digress...

All four men are charged with entering federal property under false pretenses with the intent of committing a felony. If it is found that their intent was electronic surveillance, they could be looking at 20 years or more in prison:

One of the alleged accomplices, Robert Flanagan, has friends in high places: His father, William Flanagan, is the acting US Attorney for Western LA, and 24-year-old Robert recently interned for Congresswoman Mary Fallin (R-OK). Fallin, coincidentally, is one of just 31 Representatives who co-sponsored a resolution honoring James O’Keefe for his ACORN filmmaking / editing.

But the Republicans will try to blow this all off as a harmless prank or third-rate burglary... just like Watergate.

I'm certain conservative hero O'Keefe will look cute in his new jailbird costume.
