Starting to take on the look and feel of wiretapping activities made famous during Richard Nixon's Presidential reign, a new breed of conservative zealots have been charged with planting illegal listening devices in the offices of Louisiana Democractic Senator, Mary Landrieu.
No official ties to the Republican party have been uncovered, but the four men known to be acidic writers for various conservative publications, had been supported as "darlings" of the republican party. The motives behind the attempted tapping and video recording activities are unclear, but friends close to one of the accused say, "It could be quite innocent, actually. These were conservative men to be sure, but they also appreciate the swing on the back porch of Ms. Landrieu when she walks down the hall."
Former Richard Nixon aide, Haywood Jaspankme commented, "You have to admire their assertiveness and dedication to the cause, but they committed the cardinal sin of getting caught." Once pictures of the men were released to the press, Jaspankme said, "Oh, and that one is especially cute. He could tap me any time."
After all were released on bond, one of the men's lawyers had commented that there was really no intent on his client's part to commit a crime, though they were seen entering the federal building posed as telephone workers in overalls, hard hats and reflective vests. "Just a few kids, having a little fun, celebrating the Octomom children's birthday, that's all, but with hard hats, and vests, but that's really it, after passing through security in the federal building with phone tapping equipment. But, all good clean fun". Said the lawyer.
One of the men, James O'Keefe was heard saying "Veritas" as he entered his cab after being released, asserting that the "truth shall set me free". Most agree that the fictional story woven by their lawyers was pretty funny, so the truth should be a scream.
