Break In at the Hale Boggs Building

The young videographer who posed as a pimp to "take down ACORN" gets arrested here in New Orleans for trying to bug Senator Landrieu's office in the Hale Boggs building on Poydras.

Bad idea.

UPDATE:  A long time reader and friend of the blog sends in this tidbit about James O'Keefe: "I met James while working in DC.  He seemed a little TOO passionate about politics and really enjoyed shock value (aka "attention")."

Exhibit A

UPDATE II:  The Times-Pic provides more strange details about the event - including the fact that O'Keefe, on leaving the St. Bernard Parish jail stated only "Veritas."  Laughably stupid.

UPDATE III (Steve S): the FBI affidavit can be found at Talking Points Memo.
