BUSTED! - The Acorn Busters A conservative activist who made undercover videos of the liberal community-organizing group ACORN was one of four men charged Tuesday with attempting to illegally access and manipulate the phone system in a district office of U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana. 4 charged in U.S. Senate office infiltration in New Orleans - CNN.com Louisiana families are shocked and outraged that these men would break the law to carry out their political agenda If convicted, the four men would each face a possible maximum penalty of a $250,000 fine and 10 years in prison That video and others by O'Keefe and his associate led to the dismissal of four ACORN employees who appeared to offer advice to the couple and to federal legislation barring the group from receiving federal funds. But a review by former Massachusetts Attorney General Scott Harshbarger, who was hired by ACORN to examine the issue, found no wrongdoing by ACORN employees. "While some of the advice and counsel given by ACORN employees and volunteers was clearly inappropriate and unprofessional, we did not find a pattern of intentional, illegal conduct by ACORN staff," Harshbarger's report concluded. "In fact, there is no evidence that action, illegal or otherwise, was taken by any ACORN employee on behalf of the videographers." "Don't just respond to news, but actually create your own headlines," O'Keefe is quoted as saying by CampusReform.org. -------------------------- Part of the Republican "agenda"?
