    Surely a law and order Liberal like yourself doesn't want to see a citizen's rights violated and be wrongfully convicted of a crime he didn't commit. Or, is this different?
    Alright sparky, let us see how I'll destroy your arguments today. What rights of his have been violated? They were caught entering a federal building under false pretences and tried to tamper with government property. That in and of itself is a felony. No rights have been violated and your dishonesty has once again been exposed. Want to try this again?

    Another well thought out mature response. Well done.

    How can you destroy his argument when the government hasn't even charged him with wire tapping?

    I know its tempting but a lynching isn't exactly whats called for here.

    Funnily enough, an "anonymous law enforcement official" was the only source for the claim that the fourth guy had "listening equipment" or that they were there to wiretap. That didn't seem to stop anyone else from reporting it as gospel.

    However breitbart should be careful as he could be implicated. O'Keafe was on his payroll.
    What should he be careful about? If he knew something before, he could be implicated whether or not he's careful. If he didn't, then he can't.

    Looks like that's the official defense:

    A lawyer for one of four conservative activists accused of tampering with a Louisiana senator's phones says they hoped to embarrass her over claims her staff ignored calls critical of her stance on health care reform.

    J. Garrison Jordan is an attorney for suspect Robert Flanagan. He denies the men sought to disable or wiretap the phones in Sen. Mary Landrieu's office at a federal building in New Orleans.

    Jordan said Thursday they were trying to document allegations that Landrieu's staff has been ignoring phone calls about the Democratic senator's health care position.

    If it turns out that there was no wiretapping equipment and that there's no evidence of any intent beyond this, then I could see the charges being dropped.

    Where did I say it had? They were charged with entering a federal building with purpose to commit a felony. 10 years. End of story.

    Phone-tampering case: Prank or political spying? - Yahoo! News

    All four men were charged with entering federal property under false pretenses for the purpose of committing a felony, which carries up to 10 years in prison. They were not charged with wiretapping.

    Meanwhile, the conservatives who once made O'Keefe their hero for his hidden-camera expose of ACORN distanced themselves from his latest project.
    Hannah Giles — who posed as a prostitute for the sting videos, in which ACORN staffers appeared to offer illegal tax advice and support the misuse of public funds — said she was shocked when she heard about O'Keefe's arrest.

    Problem with end of story is they're having trouble finding any evidence to prove the intent to commit a felony.

    Yes , of course. And Pete Townshend of The Who band was only checking out child porn for a "research project".

    Beyond hilarious.

    You're right, the government shouldn't be allowed to because it's a violation of our constitutional rights.
