Andrew Breitbart, Last week, Kevin Zeese, a lawyer for VelvetRevolution.us, a national organization dedicated to monitoring clean, accountable and transparent government, sent a letter to Attorney General Douglas Gansler and Maryland State’s Attorney Patricia Jessamy Maryland interest Coats criminal charges brought against James O’Keefe, Hannah and Andrew Breitbart Giles for violating wiretapping and electronic surveillance of Maryland Law. A copy of the letter is on http://www.velvetrevolution.us/images/GANSLER-COATS_OKEEFE.pdf.
In summary, the letter states that Breitbart, Giles O’Keefe and conspired in secret wiretaps and videotaped employees of the Baltimore office of ACORN without their knowledge or consent, and published the video with the intent to cause damage to employees and ACORN. Maryland law is very clear in requiring two consent of the parties for any video recording. The letter cites two official reports of the Advocates General, the GAO and the House Judiciary Committee, which noted that all O’Keefe et al violated privacy laws in Maryland and edited the tapes to make it appear that ACORN has done something wrong when he did not.
O’Keefe has pleaded guilty to federal crimes in connection with the handling of the phones in the office of Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana last January and has since been convicted and condemned such criminal activity. He and Giles have been sued by an employee of ACORN in California for violating his privacy in a case very similar to the case of Maryland. Yesterday, Breitbart was involved in another scandal video released that falsely accused Agriculture Department officials Shirley Sherrod racism.
“O’Keefe, Breitbart and Giles clearly engaged in criminal activity with intent to do harm. His conduct in Maryland is part of a general fraud, often involving crimes be brought back and across the country for political purposes” said VR co-founder and investigative journalist Brad Friedman. “They are dedicated to crime, creating false scandals and then accuse others of criminal activity. We have asked the Maryland law enforcement officials to stop this behavior reprehensible and illegal once and for all.”
