Ohmygod: Teabagging Racist Traitor James O'Keefe Somehow Gets Off By Pleading Out to a Rinky-Dink Misdemeanor
Update: Corrected -- the MFM Lied to Me

As Instapundit says, they told me if I voted for McCain that teabagging racist traitors would be coddled and encouraged by our "law" enforcement system, and they were right!

It looks like James O'Keefe won't be in cuffs after all.

The conservative activist filmmaker, who was arrested in New Orleans in January along with three cohorts in the office of Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu, is expected to enter a plea to a misdemeanor on Wednesday in federal court. He’s accused of entering federal property under false pretenses.

Oh noes, oh noes.

Welcome to "AmeriKKKa," people.

I knew this would happen the moment Bush cancelled the 2008 elections.

Correction: Not really a correction so much as an update -- he didn't just cop a plea to illegally entering, but to tampering with phone lines.

So he copped to two rinky-dink misdemeanors.

Still -- $1500 in fines. No stretch in federal prison, as famously dispassionate court-watcher David Shuster promised.

Thanks to sauropod for the update.

Cancel that Update: First I thought he'd pled to entering under false pretenses.

Then I read this article that claimed he pled to guilty to tampering with her phones:

New Jersey activist James O'Keefe pleaded guilty along with three other activists to entering a New Orleans senator's office and tampering with her phones, according to a report by the DailyRecord.com.

That's a lie. He did not plead guilty to tampering with her phones. He pled guilty to entry under false pretenses -- this report simply made that up to sweeten the story for its liberal audience and claim he pled to more than he did.

This article -- which the previous article links to as authority - says it's just entry under false pretenses.

So where'd they get the "tampering with phones" plea?

Just made it up. Because they were invested so heavily in the "slam-dunk case, O'Keefe is frog-marched to prison for wiretapping" storyline, they can't admit he didn't plea to that; no, they instead get some vindication by just makin' it up that he pled out to that.

Why not? Why not just make stuff up?

Thanks to Rocks.
