Could O’Keefe be that stupid, or is this some sort of frame up?

My money’s on the latter.

For the sake of my government, the arrests had better be based on legitimate evidence of an actual crime.

I’m just sayin’.

Hey I have a great idea: Let’s take the government’s word for what happened!

I guess the MSM will have to be dragged kicking and screaming to this story after a few weeks, just like they were when the original ACORN videos broke.

Oh, wait.

Easy ~ this guy was down in New Orleans which is the capital city of the entire ACORN operation. They were supposedly in Moon Landrieu's daughter's office (in a federal building perhaps?) and had tools, etc. and it is claimed they were going to mess with her phone system.

It's not beyond belief this particular US Senator can be influenced to participate in further crime. After all she took a $300 million bribe from Obama and his lackeys.

She ought to be among the top targets for all independent scandal breakers.

Under RICO, a person who is a member of an enterprise that has committed any two of 35 crimes—27 federal crimes and 8 state crimes—within a 10-year period can be charged with racketeering. Those found guilty of racketeering can be fined up to $250,000 and/or sentenced to 20 years in prison per racketeering count. In addition, the racketeer must forfeit all ill-gotten gains and interest in any business gained through a pattern of “racketeering activity.” RICO also permits a private individual harmed by the actions of such an enterprise to file a civil suit; if successful, the individual can collect treble damages.

Here's the FBI affidavit.

An FBI affidavit says the incident happened Monday. At least two of the suspects were dressed in work clothes and construction hats and claimed they were technicians for a telephone company.

The other three were identified as Stan Dai, 24; Robert Flanagan 24; and Joseph Basel, 24.

I’d take that bet. O’Keefe has(had) a promising future, and was very aggressive in getting scoops. Unfortunately I don’t think he would have used enough restraint in the pursuit of a good story.

I think this is what Obama was talking about when he said they will be “fighting back.” This will be an ugly 2010 race and an ugly couple of years leading up to 2012 but we will prevail.
