FBI issues release on guilty pleas of right-wing activists led by O’Keefe

The FBI just released details of the guilty pleas entered Wednesday by the right-wing activists who entered Sen. Mary Landrieu’s office under false pretenses in January. The band of activists was following the lead of James O’Keefe, famous for the debunked fraudulent and illegal videos of workers at low-income housing and voter registration group ACORN that were published and promoted by conservative media mogul Andrew Breitbart last fall. Those heavily edited tapes led to federal defunding of the organization and the shuttering of ACORN offices across the country.

Ah yes, dirty tricks live on, don’t they?
