I smell a “setup” as payback for the damage to ACORN. This IS New Orleans, after all.

But I suppose you never know.

I agree it is quite possible it was a setup. Take note of the fuzzy language in the accusation:

“FBI Special Agent Steven Rayes alleges that O’Keefe aided and abetted two others, Joseph Basel and Robert Flanagan, who dressed up as employees of a telephone company and attempted to interfere with the office’s telephone system. “

So, O’Keefe himself was not dressed as a telephone company employee, but he supposedly “aided and abetted” them? If he were dressed as a telephone worker, I’d have much less cause for doubt.

Also, it says that attempted to “interfere” with the office telephone system. That seems rather vague.

It would not surprise me at all if a couple of felons were offered a deal or paid to show up at Landrieu’s office, when O’Keefe had an appointment there, and say he was working with them to bug the phones.
