ACORN Filmmaker Pimp Busted for Plot to Bug Phones in Sen. Mary Landrieu's Office

The conservative darling -- who manufactured films designed to prove that ACORN, the leftist organization that helps poor people, is corrupt -- has been caught being corrupt. James O’Keefe, aka the pimp in the gotcha ACORN films, has been busted for attempting to bug the phones in Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu's office. And it is still true that we never did see the full unedited versions of the Pimp's films.

James O’Keefe — the upstart investigative filmmaker whose undercover video work got ACORN’s federal funding stripped — has been arrested by the FBI in Louisiana for attempting to wiretap the offices of Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu, according to the Times-Picayune. The paper is reporting that the FBI arrested O’Keefe and three others — Stan Dai, Joseph Basel and Robert Flanagan — two of whom dressed as telephone company workers to tap the Landrieu’s office telephone system. O’Keefe was reportedly posted inside the office and claimed to be “waiting for someone to arrive.”
