(Senator Mary Landrieu says practically nothing about this, probably because she thinks the event best left to law enforcement.

It's burglary, folks -- and this one looks worse than Watergate. Let's hope that this one doesn't lead to the Republican National Committee.

Ha ha, nice try.

Does anyone think that it could do harm to Senator David Vitter (R-LA, literal consort with whores, who is up for re-election in 2010?)

Vitter is a Republican Senator and not an ACORN employee, so no one cares about that.

Vitter had a role in the appointment in the hiring the father (a federal attorney) of one of the defendants. New Orleans may have lax standards on sex and political corruption, but the combination could be ugly.

Vitter could certainly not be elected in some very conservative states.

Im not so sure this wasn't a frameup and even if it wasn't - trying to discover corruption in the office of the senator who got the Louisiana Purchase now somehow = bad?.  Obama has wanted to get these people as soon as the ACORN news broke.  They were marked men.

You suggest entrapment, the only imaginable defense for the alleged burglars. I say, follow the money and we will find out where the crime leads.

Those fellows were not police officers, and the law is unambiguous about wiretaps: except as permitted by a court of law to law enforcement officials who have sworn the necessity and efficacy of wiretaps, wiretaps are illegal. Period. The burglars posed as telephone-company employees, and did something that the phone companies do not tolerate. "Good intentions" do not excuse a crime.

By committing what looks like a set of serious crimes, James O'Keefe has just discredited his exposure of ACORN. Because his filming is not of the sort that one associates with such types as Hitchcock, Kubrick, or Spielberg, his career as an "independent filmmaker" looks to have been ruined.  This looks like a Gigli of a crime.

Actually, it doesn't look like it.  The father is only the "acting" USA because the political appointee left, I think with the change in administrations.
