“It’s not a crime if you’re a Republican!”

Remember the two little conservatards who took their “pimp and ho” act on the road for a covertly taped interview that snagged entrapped a dimwitted ACORN worker? This little creep…… was arrested with 3 other pinheads yesterday in the midst of trying to bug the phone system in a Democratic Senator’s office:

A conservative activist who posed as a pimp to target the community-organizing group ACORN and the son of a federal prosecutor were among four people arrested by the FBI and accused of trying to interfere with phones at Sen. Mary Landrieu’s office.

Activist James O’Keefe, 25, was already in Landrieu’s New Orleans office Monday when Robert Flanagan and Joseph Basel, both 24, showed up claiming to be telephone repairmen, U.S. Attorney Jim Letten’s office said Tuesday. Letten says O’Keefe recorded the two with his cell phone.

It should come as no surprise that in the past O’Keefe has teamed up with another low-rent authoritarian swine who gets off on invading privacy to make “undercover” movies, fetus fetishizing extremist “Lila Rose”.  That’s right, the degenerate punishment freak who goes into ecstatic spasms when visualizing women being forced by the state to have abortions “in the public square“.

O’Keefe became a conservative celebrity of sorts after his ACORN movies went viral (and I mean that in the worst possible way) on Youtube, but I guess he let it go to his head.  He apparently saw nothing illegal, immoral or just wrong about bugging a politician’s phone.  Or maybe he figured he had the connections to keep him out of trouble:

In the reception area, Flanagan, the son of acting U.S. Attorney Bill Flanagan in Shreveport, and Basel asked for access to the main phone at the reception desk.

After handling the phone, Letten’s office said, they asked for access to a phone closet so they could work on the main phone system. The men were directed to another office in the building, where they are accused of again misrepresenting themselves as telephone repairmen.

Hoho!  I guess we’ll see how much drag US Attorney Bill Flanagan has, because what these little dickheads were doing is a federal offense that would mean a world of hurt for most people.  Stay tuned…


It was poor judgment,” Robert Flanagan’s lawyer, Garrison Jordan, said in a brief interview outside the courthouse. “I don’t think there was any intent or motive to commit a crime.”

Is he kidding?   “Poor judgment” is getting shitfaced at the office Christmas party and pissing in the wassail.  Secretly wiretapping a Senator’s office seems a little more serious.

    Watch the GOP distance itself from these twits. If it was the other way around, they would be demanding that heads roll and blaming that the white house was behind it.

    Stay classy Republicans.

    I’m not going to give a link to Michelle Malkin, but I’ll mention that her report on this so far is not incendiary but focused on whatever facts are available.

    The comments however, are textbook RepubliCon attempts to excuse, justify, exonerate and rationalize the crimes that O’Keefe and his accomplices allegedly attempted.

    Here’s a typical example: “This sounds… hinky. I’ll be waiting for more info, but seeing as how all the ACRON video DA’s were gunning to charge O’Keefe and Giles on wiretapping charges for filming my gut tells me, and this is only a guess, that they weren’t bugging the phone lines but were filming some nefarious goings-on at the Landrieu office. Note the report neither mentions having tapped the phone lines, or any wiretapping equipment on their persons. The government does not like O’Keefe. Holder doesn’t like O’Keefe.”

    And: “I bet this has been Holder’s #1 priority and he’s been planning this thing for months. He probably fed him some fake info and then just waited for O’Keefe to take the bait. Worked like a charm. Those feds will do ANYTHING.”

    Yes, I can see the talking points now…ACORN somehow set them up, it’s all Obama’s fault.

    Phatbiker – Hahaha, it won’t be easy.

    31 Republicans co-sponsored a resolution last fall to honour this O’Keefe dude as a Hee-ro for taking down the evil ACORN (even though the tapes he made were doctored, and the workers he taped were clearly just gullible and dumb, not corrupt).

    This should be good.

    Bleatmop – You’d think they would have learned something from Watergate.

    Great schadenfreude cake, though, I like it.

    deBeauxOs – Not surprising — the Freepers think it was a frame-up, even though O’Keefe confessed to the whole thing.

    Good grief, these people are stupid. Is it possible to be that stupid and still be able to type??

    Smelter rat – They haven’t reached the “it’s all Obama’s fault” stage yet, but that’s coming. They already think it was a set up.

    EDIT: Whoops, my bad, we’re already there. One of the freepers posted a comment that said
    “I think this is what Obama was talking about when he said they will be fighting back!”

    JJ, did you see my tweets on the subject? 😆

    This guy is a product.
    A compilation disc of,
    I need attention,
    I watch too much TV and think I’m in it, or on it.
    With a healthy coating of that,
    not part of the reality based community thing.
    Creep covers it nicely though.

    JAB- No, I haven’t been on Twitter for awhile, but I’ll go and look. I’m sure you had some amusing comments to make about this thing!

  12. 12 JJ Wednesday, January 27, 2010 at 11:58 am

    peter g – Nicely said.

    It’s certainly an attention thing — this guy got so much attention after his “sting” videos, I think it went to his head and he decided to one-up them.

    How could he not know that bugging federal property is a felony? He’s obviously not the sharpest tool in the box.

    JAB – 😆 Shallow Throat, Bowling for Acorn, very good

  14. 15 JJ Wednesday, January 27, 2010 at 12:49 pm

    JAB – 😆 This is shaping up to be a lot of fun. Invest in popcorn futures.

    And follow the money 😯
