A Crime or just Investigative Journalism, you make the call …
Andrew Breitbart on Fox News, James O’Keefe of the famed ACORN “Pimps & Prostitutes videos, who is presently accused of trying to tamper with the phones of Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu, was “framed” by the media and the U.S. attorney’s office. Interestingly enough the top prosecutor, Jim Letten, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Louisiana, has recused himself from the case.
The top federal prosecutor for New Orleans has removed himself from the case of four conservative activists arrested last week while allegedly trying to capture hidden camera footage in a senator’s office, the Department of Justice said Monday.
A Justice Department news release said Jim Letten, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Louisiana, recused himself from the case a day after the Jan. 25 arrests in Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu’s office in New Orleans. Letten’s top lieutenant, assistant U.S. Attorney Jan Mann, has taken over.
US Attorney Jim Letten gave no reason for him removing himself from the case.
However, as reported at Big Government.com, on the very day that film maker James O’Keefe sat in jail for 28 hours without counsel.
“James O’Keefe sat in jail for 28 hours without access to an attorney, while the U.S. attorney leaked the information about his arrest, helping the media frame it as ‘Watergate Junior,’” Breitbart said.
O’Keefe declined to talk about Breitbart’s allegations on Fox News Monday night, adding he was cooperating with the U.S. attorney’s office and he was pleased with the way the U.S. attorney was handling the case.
He said details of his arrest may be brought up at another time, but not now because it is an ongoing investigation.

Why does it appear that this story is much different than initially reported in the media? I guess the other question would be, where was the MSM and their news coverage when Jmaes O’Keefe and Hannah Giles were nailing ACORN with video proof that they were providing information to create a human trafficking service and prostitution of underage girls? Just curious.
