The resolution went so faras to say that he was “owed a debt of gratitude by the people of the United States”. If you’re not familiar with this latest “tea party” debacle Brains and Eggs has all the information, TeaBuggin’.
(O’Keefe and three other men) were charged with entering federal property under false pretenses and attempting to gain access to (Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu)’s office by posing as telephone repairmen, according to a copy of an FBI affidavit unsealed Tuesday.
[BTW, anyone wanting to read about how the tea party's quickly became a profit-making scam, this long post from someone who was there at the beginning, is highly recommended - , On the Backs of Tennessee’s Middle Class (or, The Story Behind Tea Party Nation’s Dishonest Beginnings)].
