Prior to James O'Keefe officially pleading guilty in New Orleans today for entering a federal building under false pretenses,U.S. District Judge Stanwood Duval, writing in a court order last week, had some harsh words from the right-wing activist's dubious actions.
From NOLA.com [emphasis added]:
Duval's order says the "breaching of the security" at Hale Boggs is "an extremely sensitive matter."
"Federal buildings and federal officers have been and are the target of threats, and on occasion the victims of acts of violence," the order says in part. "Deception is alleged to have been used by the defendants to achieve their purposes, which in and of itself is unconscionable. Perceived righteousness of a cause does not justify nefarious and potentially dangerous actions."
