The four defendants who were arrested in January in Sen. Mary Landrieu’s office in the Hale Boggs federal complex in New Orleans pleaded guilty Wednesday morning in federal court to entering real property belonging to the United States under false pretenses.
Magistrate Judge Daniel Knowles III sentenced Stan Dai, Joseph Basel and Robert Flanagan each to two years probation, a fine of $1,500 and 75 hours of community service during their first year of probation.
James O’Keefe, as leader of the group and famous for posing as a pimp in ACORN office videos, received three years of probation, a fine of $1,500 and 100 hours of community service.
I suppose it is a good thing they did not receive any jail time, because I don’t think I could have handled six months of “Free the Landrieu Four” posts clogging the blogosphere. Having said that, is it entirely too much to ask that O’Keefe be required to serve his community service under the watchful eyes of the New Orleans branch of ACORN? Pretty please?
Bonus points if he serves it dressed as a pimp.
