A very thin story describes O’Keefe and three other men involved in a caper at the office of Sen. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana. O’Keefe is said to have been recording the activities of two others dressed as telephone repairmen as they handled a phone in the office and asked for access to controls in a telephone closet. Little else is known about what actually transpired.
The primary result so far is that OKeefe has gotten mainstream media exposure for his work in bringing the malfeasance of ACORN to light. This coverage will continue as the Louisiana legal system proceeds with the investigations and trial.
It appears that America will not be able to forget those films by O’Keefe and Giles, showing ACORN employees directing them how to run child prostitution businesses in several different cities.
Some curious information about Sen Landrieu might also come to light during legal proceedings should the Senator not ask for the charges to be dropped.
Others arrested in conjunction with this activity are Robert Flanagan and Joseph Basel, (the two ‘telephone repairmen’) and Stan Dai, who was said to be involved in planning.
Robert Flanagan is the son of son of acting U.S. Attorney Bill Flanagan.
