One Sting Too Many

It’s one thing to pretend to be a pimp when interviewing ACORN employees.  It’s quite another to pretend to be a telephone repairman to gain access to a U.S. Senate office and its telephone system.  Apparently noted ACORN-sting filmaker James O’Keefe and some compatriots did not see the difference, and are now facing federal charges and the possibility of significant jail time.  Politico reports here.

UPDATE: More from the Times-Picayune.

UPDATE: Patterico thinks there may be less to this story than meets the eye.  We’ll see.
