There are just some stories that warm the cockles and whatever else is in the Tattler’s heart — this is one of them.
Remember this phony Republican ‘Simp Pimp’ that I wrote about in December 2009 in “Why the GOP Hates ACORN and the Poor”?
Well, now he’s in the pokey for committing a federal felony in attempting to bug the offices of Louisiana Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu. I can’t wait to read the right-wing blogs reaction to their ACORN Golden Boy turned latter-day Watergate Twit, and it would also be interesting to read the reaction of real pimps in the Graybar Academy when presented with this pathetic dweeb. When they’re finished laughing, that is. Don’t drop the soap, Little Jimmy!
Here’s an excerpt from the MSNBC story today:
Activist filmmaker arrested in senators office
Man who exposed ACORN accused of seeking to wiretap Landrieus phones

NEW ORLEANS – A conservative filmmaker whose undercover videos shone a spotlight on alleged corruption by the liberal activist group ACORN was arrested with three other men and accused of plotting to wiretap the New Orleans offices of Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La.
The FBI said in an affidavit that James OKeefe was among the four men who were arrested Monday. Special Agent Steven Rayes said OKeefe was helping two others, Joseph Basel and Robert Flanagan, who were dressed as employees of a telephone company and attempted to interfere with the offices telephone system.

Since O’Keefe’s misleading videos and his lies about them were instrumental in getting Congress to cut federal funding of ACORN, I wonder — do they get that money back now?
