Affidavit for undercover film maker

The story seems to be everywhere, but few sites have posted the affidavit that led to the arrest of gonzo journalist James O’Keefe and three others. Working with a hidden camera, O’Keefe and Hannah Giles posed as a pimp and prostitute seeking advice from ACORN employees. Their videos led to tremendous outrage and a congressional ban on federal funding, which has since been overturned.

On Monday, O’Keefe, Joseph Basel, Robert Flanagan and Stan Dai were arrested in what the FBI said was an attempt to tamper with phones in Sen. Mary Landrieu’s office in the Hale Boggs Federal Building.

    Gonzo Journalism is an oxymoron.

  • “Gonzo” journalist? Don’t you mean “big-pimpin’ Nixonite” journalism that real Gonzo Journalism fought against? What are they going to call this? HaleMaryGate?
