Watchdog Groups Launch New Campaign To Hold Andrew Breitbart, James O'Keefe And Hannah Giles Accountable For Illegally Wiretapping ACORN Employees In Baltimore
Since that illegal conduct occurred, numerous official reports have been released showing that O'Keefe, Giles and Breitbart acted illegally/unethically with regard to their ACORN recordings. Also, James O'Keefe has been arrested and convicted for tampering with the phones in Senator Mary Landrieu's office, and he is under investigation for attempting to lure a CNN reporter on to a boat in Maryland for nefarious purposes and setting up teachers union employees in New Jersey. Andrew Breitbart posted an edited recording of Department of Agriculture employee Shirley Sherrod which resulted in her improper firing. A subsequent investigation determined that she did nothing wrong and should be reinstated.
"It appears that these zealots are engaged in a nationwide pattern of criminal activity for purely political reasons," said campaign spokesperson and attorney Kevin Zeese. "But, in Maryland, we don't take kindly to outsiders coming here to commit crimes that harm our citizens and community organizations. And so, with a new prosecutor in Baltimore who has campaigned on the rule of law, we are urging him to move quickly and decisively to bring these criminals to justice."
The campaign is asking citizens to sign a letter to Gregg Bernstein, the new Baltimore State's Attorney, which will be hand delivered the week he is sworn in in January, 2011. To learn more, go to www.IndictBreitbart.org.
