James O’Keefe, memorable for his pimp costume in the video series which exposed the corruption of ACORN, gets a fine, community service and probation for entering a federal building under false pretenses. His group was apparently checking to see if Senator Mary Landrieu’s message box was really full. 😉
For this small penalty, O’Keefe got a ton of extra international media exposure for his ACORN video sting operation. Comparable internet ad time would have been waaaaaaaaay more expensive.
ACORN has since gone bankrupt, and split into baby acorns with new names.
Best wishes for these intrepid investigators and hopes for more video hits from Mr. O’Keefe and friends.
Chalk that Louisiana phone caper into the Plus column.
