    Thats odd...i thought that Sen. Mary Landrieu. was a woman.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Really? Focus on the messenger? OK, you are right. He only committed an itty bitty felony, but he's really a good guy. Come on, folks. We can turn our heads and look the other way over this. After all, there are plenty of witches out there that need burning. He is being prosecuted... err, I mean persecuted, by his enemies, the same way the Watergate burglars, were prosecuted... err, I mean persecuted. It's just not fair.

    Seriously, the man is not a messenger. He is a criminal.

For someone that was targeted they were given the benefit of the doubt quite a ways until they wanted more access and met up with an individual that became suspicious of there real identity.
    The secret service should hire that guy!.......

    But an exhaustive report recently released by the Congressional Research Service -- a nonpartisan branch of Congress -- exonerated ACORN, finding no incidents where the organization broke any laws or misspent any federal funds.


    ACORN exonerated? - Roanoke.com

    These activists were a dangerous group of people that believed the ends justified the means regardless of how illegal it was. It might play well on prime time fiction series like White Collar or Burn Notice but in the real world it's frowned upon, and thank God it is. I hope they have plenty of time to think about their stupidity in jail.
    Okay, I gotta ask...

    How in the world did through all of this you manage to find an article on the website of the Roanoke Times of all places.

    LOL, not the topic I'd expect to see a link to my old home paper pop up.

    Though I find it funny that you use a wholey agenda driven person writing an agenda driven editorial with the vast majority of it rooted in opinion rather than fact and giving no specifics as to what the CSR actually investigated to somehow prove how bad and wrong someone else was for being agenda driven.....

    Actually, he's both. You can be both you know. He was a messenger in regards to the ACORN thing, and it sure seems he's a criminal in this case.

    He's bad for being a criminal. If he's found guilty he should be punished. That doesn't magically change the ACORN footage into something else. And the hypocritical nature of some of those who immedietely doubted him on the ACORN story and have repeatedly said it doesn't matter but are acting like they just found him molesting puppies while sacrificing a kid on top of a stolen Picaso and as such must just be an agenda driven compulsive liar is rather funny.

    Seriously though, trying to falsely represent yourself to the over the line degree he did and tapping phones, for whatever reason, is just way over the line. The punishment may vary based on motive and purpose but there's nothing that'd really excuse it.

    Good post, but it is kind of funny how some here have attempted to change the topic from a man committing a criminal act to how bad ACORN is. LOL.

    Finally, if he really is both, then his criminality doesn't say much for his message, does it?
