Love those you listen to.. they have so much integrity.

He has received criticism for editing videos to misrepresent persons as having said things they did not say.

He gained national attention for his video recordings of workers at ACORN offices in 2009, his arrest and guilty plea in 2010 for entering the federal office of then-U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) under false pretenses

Perhaps a job at CNN is in his future

Yes, they do have integrity. A lot more than our typical politicians. More integrity than pols like Schumer and Pelosi and Clinton and, Oh, let's reach back into the past, more integrity than the Dems great hero FDR, or LBJ . . . the political names are endless and include tons of Republicans, but I'll leave their names up to you to expose.

Going under cover takes courage and a will to suffer and pay for the consequences of being exposed. O'keefe doesn't lie about his methods. He is totally open about what he does and how he does it. Undercover investigation is a long-standing method of getting information that would be difficult or impossible to get otherwise. We have government agencies, like the CIA and police agencies, who use deception and sting operations to get results.

Talk about loving those who you listen to . . . "receiving criticism" is a phony way of characterizing the veracity of the criticism. Receiving criticism does not mean the criticism is true. There is no proof that the videos were edited. They were not edited. And they were effective in bringing down a phony, racist organization that should not have been subsidized by government money.

Yeah, he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor. How many misdemeanors do you know of that have gained national attention.

Again, he knew the possible consequences to himself and his partners for what they were doing. Exposing corruption can backfire, and he paid the price. But that did not stop him from continuing his mission with the same techniques. Whether you like it or not, whether you approve it or not, it takes some courage and integrity to do that.

Did you watch the video? Or, as before, you just prefer to smear the messenger and disregard the message.
