The FBI, alleging a plot to wiretap Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu's office in downtown New Orleans, arrested four people Monday, including James O'Keefe, a conservative filmmaker whose undercover videos at ACORN field offices severely damaged the advocacy group's credibility.
FBI Special Agent Steven Rayes alleges that O'Keefe aided and abetted two others, Joseph Basel and Robert Flanagan, who dressed up as employees of a telephone company and attempted to interfere with the office's telephone system.
UPDATE: Here's the full Rayes affidavit, which descrbes O'Keefe filming his allies as they fiddled with a phone in Landrieu's office and then sought access to a telephone closet elsewhere in the building. The episode seems to have ended when a suspicious GSA employee asked for their identification cards. The affidavit doesn't make entirely clear what their plan was.
