On tap for the Angola State Prison menu: White meat?

James O’Keefe, the guerilla videographer who along with his partner, Hannah Giles, caught ACORN employees last year giving advice to their pimp and prostitute personas with respect to setting up prostitution rings is in a wee bit a trouble.

Alleging a plot to tamper with phones in Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu's office in the Hale Boggs Federal Building in downtown New Orleans, the FBI arrested four people Monday, including James O'Keefe, 25, a conservative filmmaker whose undercover videos at ACORN field offices severely damaged the advocacy group's credibility.

Also arrested were Joseph Basel, Stan Dai and Robert Flanagan, all 24. Flanagan is the son of William Flanagan, who is the acting U.S. attorney for the Western District of Louisiana. All four men were charged with entering federal property under false pretenses with the intent of committing a felony.

O’Keefe who was making conservative insurgency tactics hip, was fond of quoting leftist community organizing pioneer, Saul Alinsky. Allow us to offer one up on O’Keefe’s behalf: You do the crime, you do the time.

Can’t say as there’s anyone less we would want to trade places with considering he and his merry band of “plumbers” are looking at fines, jail time and a disgraced legacy. Heckuva job, guys.

Exit question: does this mean Hannah Giles is available?

If the guy did it, I hope they send him to jail.

I can't understand why such a high profile person would do something so stupid.
