Pimp this, Mr. Veritas

The right wing punk, James O’Keefe, who gained notoriety in wingnut circles for posing as a pimp to smear ACORN may end up pimping for something or someone else in a federal prison. O’Keefe was arrested by the FBI for illegally entering the offices of Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu posing as a telephone repairman and attempting to bug the Senator’s office phones. O’Keefe and his accomplices are facing 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for entering federal property under false pretenses for the purposes of committing a felony.

From pimp poseur to prison bitch, from Fox News Hannity to MSNBC’s Lockup Raw, from A-hole to ACORN, such is the flameout odyssey of a G. Gordon Liddy Watergate burglar wannabe. I love it when a plan comes together: Poetic justice and then some. After posting bail O’Keefe said “Veritas” (truth in Latin), adding “the truth shall set me free.” Um, what’s the frequency, James . . . or maybe it was all a big misunderstanding?

Latest Capitol Hill rumor: A House Resolution introduced by Rep. Pete Olson of Texas, with 23 cosponsors, honoring “the fact-finding reporting” done by James O’Keefe III, is being hastily amended:

Whereas James O’Keefe III is “owed a debt of gratitude by the people of the United States: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That the House of Representatives--

(1) honors James O’Keefe III . . . ;

(2) commends James O’Keefe III for bringing to light . . .; and

(3) respectfully requests the Clerk of the House to transmit an enrolled copy of this resolution to . . . James O’Keefe III [.] Insert Amended language here [: AT FEDERAL PENITENTIARY – ADDRESS TBD.]”
