Congressman Who Sponsored Resolution Honoring O’Keefe Criticizes the Landrieu Sting
Tuesday, January 26, 2010 at 6:12 pm
In October, freshman Rep. Pete Olson (R-Texas) introduced a resolution honoring James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles for their ACORN sting. Thirty-one Republicans co-sponsored the resolution. Tonight, I asked Olson’s office whether the resolution would be withdrawn and got this response:
Individuals who lawfully expose wrongful activities by an entity like ACORN receiving federal tax dollars should be praised. However, if recent events conclude that any laws were broken in the incident in Senator Landrieu’s office – that is not something I condone. Citizens have an important role in helping to expose waste and/or fraud when their tax dollars are being spent, but it must be done in a lawful manner.
Still unclear — whether the resolution (which had next to no chance of passing) will be withdrawn.
