It’s hard out there for a pimp

If I ever get busted trying to tamper with a Senator’s phone — and I’m not too proud to admit that this could very easily happen — I want my lawyer to come up with something better than this:

Michael Madigan, O’Keefe’s lawyer, told POLITICO Tuesday afternoon that he was still unclear exactly what happened at the senator’s office.

“I don’t know the facts yet of what exactly happened, but at heart James O’Keefe is a good kid,” said Madigan, a white-collar criminal defense lawyer who served as counsel to Sen. Howard Baker during the Watergate investigation and helped run former Tennessee Republican Sen. Fred Thompson’s investigation of the Clinton administration.

O’Keefe’s dad is an acting US Attorney (EDIT: actually one of his co-defendants has the acting US Attorney daddy). Can’t he get someone better than this? I’ve watched enough Law & Order to know this is not good lawyering.

You know, part of me feels a little bad piling on a 23 year-old white pretend pimp like this, but all that ACORN pimp-and-ho bullshit had real political consequences. So this story needs to be played up.

    Thompson is an alum of L&O, so you’d think Madigan might have called his old buddy to ask for advice. OTOH, Thompson was a prosecutor, not a defense attorney, so maybe Madigan thought he’d get bad advice if he did that.

    Yeah, if it wasn’t for materially hurting one of the few organizations that give the poor a voice, it would be tough to prosecute 23-year olds, who have only been legally adults for five years, for allegedly attempting to wiretap a Senator’s office.

    Actually, the more I think about it, the less I care. I think this particular fuck deserves jail — but not about the wiretapping. Just for being a monumental shit to volunteers and lying about how he selectively edited their responses.

    I think crooked Senators like Landrieu deserve the same treatment they’ve been so willing to afford us: The world listening to their phone conversations.

    Now that I think of it, without the ACORN thing, I’d be inclined to support the effort. Senators need to be put on notice, the scumbags.

    Edit: Also, I’m the farthest thing from overly sensitive, but even I know rape jokes aren’t funny. Why are they funny when it has to do with prison rape? Just wondering.

    Yeah, a 24 year old “kid” should only get a few weeks in juvenile detention for a gag like this, right? I am sure that the Defenders of White Liberty (aka:Republicans) will fire up the White Man’s Wingnut Welfare Express and raise the cash that these poor little boyz will need to fight the Great Liberal Beast that is attempting to devour them.

    These fuckers better end up with felony convictions and nice long prison sentences to go with them.

    Why should you feel bad? Nobody is suggesting that he be hung for days before his body is dragged through the street, like Mussolini.

    As you said, his last plan did a lot of damage. My guess is, he didn’t have anything positive in mind here, and instead of sticking with legal tactics, he did something illegal, something that was beyond getting caught with a dime bag or urinating in public while walking home in a drunken stupor. He’ll be punished accordingly and then he will hopefully move on. What’s the problem?

    Mitch Guthman says:

    @DougJ,

    Why do you say that O’Keefe is a “pretend pimp”? He claimed to be a pimp, just as the young woman who accompanied him indicated that she was a prostitute. Insofar as I am aware, neither he nor the woman have ever been asked directly to deny that they are a pimp and a prostitute, respectively.

    Unless you are in possession of some facts not on the public record, I don’t think it is fair to call Mr. O’Keefe a “pretend pimp”. It is only good manners to take people at their word until they are shown to be unworthy of your trust. There are no facts on the public record to prove that O’Keefe isn’t a pimp. Accordingly, I think that until that facts are properly established, Mr. O’keefe should be properly described as a “self-proclaimed pimp” and the young lady as a “self-described prostitute”.

    A small point but I do believe it’s important to treat people with the respect that they deserve.

    From what I have heard they did successfully tap Landrieu’s phone and were working on the main phone bank when they were arrested. If this is the case then they are in shit so deep that there is no saving the watch. One guy waiting in the getaway car with the listening device, two guys impersonating phone company employees doing the tapping and O’keefe there recording it all for posterity.

    I bet these fuckwits thought that if they could successfully tap her lines and come up with something good that there would be tremendous pressure from the public to drop any prosecution of the Four White Heroes of Freedom and Truth(R) criminals for exposing a corrupt Democratic Senator.

    Well lookee here

    Lindsay Beyerstein notes that one of the four men arrested, Stan Dai, has past ties to Washington think tank, the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. From the bio that accompanied his 2005-2006 Phillips Foundation College Leaders Program award:

    STAN DAI, Lisle, Ill., attends The George Washington University majoring in Political Science. He is editor-in-chief of The GW Patriot, an alternative conservative student newspaper, a Club 100 Activist of Young America’s Foundation, and an Undergraduate Fellow on Terrorism of the Foundation for the Defense of the Democracies.

    FDD executive director Cliff May says Dai was part of an FDD summer terrorism/counterterrorism program for undergraduates in the summer of 2004. “He was one of our students six years ago,” May said by email. “He was a serious student then. Sounds like he’s got himself in a heap of trouble now.”

    Beginning to look like the entire Clown College might be involved.

    @DougJ:

    You know, part of me feels a little bad piling on a 23 year-old white pretend pimp like this

    This 24-year-old black kid (of the non-pimp variety, I might add) says “fuck that fake pimp.” If this was Chappelle’s Show, it would be another tragic case of “When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong”. Of course, “real” in this sense means “criminal”, and “wrong” means “getting busted by the FBI”.

    If this f*ck doesn’t get jail time, he doesn’t get punished. A huge fine is worthless–he’ll have a legal defense fund from conservative sponsors covering it in no time.

    So who will be prosecuting poor snookums, best friend’s daddy?

    This case needs to go to the Supreme Court, there is a 5-4 decision waiting there for them, plus a case of Bud.

    Apparently there are two USAs in Louisiana: eastern and western. BF’s daddy is the USA for western Louisiana. A different guy is the USA for eastern Louisiana.

    According to Gawker, this is where it gets complicated. BF’s daddy is only the acting USA — someone else is in the pipeline, but their nomination has been held up by Diaper Boy (aka Sen. David Vitter) who wants Obama to formally re-nominate the guy who’s the eastern Louisiana USA.

    A normal senator would be embarrassed to find out that he’s keeping the father of a suspected felon in office out of pique, but this is Diaper Boy we’re talking about. He sees no conflict in claiming to be a God-fearing, family-loving Christian who visits prostitutes, so he certainly isn’t going to feel any shame in this situation.

    ETA: In case it wasn’t clear, this case falls under the jurisdiction of the USA for the eastern half of the state, so the one who’s not BF’s daddy is in charge.

    Always a good idea, after trying to illegally wiretap a politician’s office with your buddies, to hire a lawyer whose biggest claim to fame involves Watergate — so that word is in EVERY news story about your arrest. Smooth…

    I hope this “kid” sees his life completely destroyed. I want him working at McDonald’s when he’s 80. And not in the happy, “Hey, I had a successful career and I just do this to get out and meet people” way. More the “I tried fucking with people in the name of my sick ideology and it ruined me forever” way.

    That’s the same thing I told the bartender when I bought a beer at the age of 14.

    “Look, I’m a good guy.”

    Worked for me…why not him?

    Maybe the kid can avoid jail if he joins the Army.

    Heh heh…

    They need to invoke the “twit” defense.
