Mary Landrieu Reacts After Arrests Made

 

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu, D-La., today commented on the arrest of four individuals charged with entering federal property under false pretenses for the purpose of committing a felony. The incident occurred in Sen. Landrieu’s New Orleans office on Monday.

Sen. Landrieu said:

“This is a very unusual situation and somewhat unsettling for me and my staff. The individuals responsible have been charged with entering federal property under false pretenses for the purposes of committing a felony. I am as interested as everyone else about their motives and purpose, which I hope will become clear as the investigation moves forward.”

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu says allegations
that a conservative activist and three other men tried to tamper
with phones at her New Orleans office are "unsettling."
      One of the suspects is James O'Keefe, a conservative activist
who posed as a pimp last year on hidden camera to target the
liberal community-organizing group ACORN.
      Authorities say one of the other suspects is Robert Flanagan,
son of the acting U.S. attorney in Shreveport, Bill Flanagan.
      The FBI says Flanagan and another man dressed as utility workers
Monday and said they needed to fix the phone system. A witness told
the FBI that O'Keefe filmed the men on his cell phone when they
walked in.
      The Democrat calls it a "very unusual situation" and says she
is "as interested as everyone else about their motives and
purpose."
