Yesterday we asked Rep. John Boozman's office for a comment regarding his support for a house resolution honoring James O'Keefe, a sleazy Republican filmmaker who now faces federal charges in a wiretapping scheme. Boozman's response wasn't much different from other congressmen who built O'Keefe up to be some kind of hero. From Sara Lasure, the congressman's communications director:
The resolution co-sponsored by Congressman Boozman recognizes fact-finding efforts in an investigation into ACORN’s illegal practices and abuse of taxpayer dollars. These actions were worthy of this recognition. The resolution was offered months in advance of allegations of illegal conduct. The congressman certainly doesn’t condone illegal activity but he is very proud of the work highlighting the irresponsible illegal activity of ACORN which deserve to be investigated by an independent prosecutor.
