One of the early threads today contained a link to the FBI affidavit. It doesn’t quite mesh with what the media is saying. (And many here are repeating)

O’Keefe didn’t gain access to the building under false pretenses. The staffers knew he was there and who he was. He wasn’t dressed as a phone company employee.

O’Keefe never touched any of the phones and didn’t go with the impostors when they were seeking access to the “phone closet”. The phone closet was on a different floor from O’Keefe. The affidavit didn’t mention any equipment having been found that could be used to tap the phones. O’Keefe did know the others involved but it sounds like they were very recent acquaintances.

The media is running with this and spinning it hard because O’Keefe and Giles embarrassed them badly.

In a conspiracy,all are equally guilty.

The affidavite says O'Keefe, and the other three, admitted they were there under false pretenses.

I think alot of people are in denial. It looks like the kid did a really stupid thing and now he's lost all the promising career he just launched so splendidly.

Olberman, as always, is an idiot, imagining some far-reaching Republican tentacles all over this thing.

With his ACORN work, O'Keefe had an outrageous idea and ran with it with spectacular results. But it now looks like it was a lucky shot in the dark. Apprarently, his idea for a follow up was boneheaded in the extreme. My guess is he'll wind up with probation and a record.

And the left can try and try, but his latest escapade does absolutely nothing to diminsh the crimes he exposed from ACORN. They're still a criminal outfit.
