A conservative activist who posed as a pimp to target the
community-organizing group ACORN and the son of a federal prosecutor were among
four people arrested by the FBI and accused of trying to interfere with phones
at Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu’s office.
Activist James O’Keefe, 25, was in the Democrat’s New Orleans office Monday
when Robert Flanagan and Joseph Basel, both 24, showed up claiming to be
telephone repairmen, U.S. Attorney Jim Letten’s office said Tuesday. Letten says
O’Keefe recorded the two with his cell phone.
