Beleaguered by ReformaTories . . . and by Burglars

We've blogged about the beleaguered-by-ReformaTories human rights group Rights and Democracy before: here and here.

The peculiar story just got peculiarer.

The Globe and Mail is reporting that the group's Montreal offices were hit by burglars. A couple of lap-tops were stolen and the police are still investigating.

Hmmm. That's the second time today that the word 'Watergate' floated through my mind.

Earlier, I was reading JJ the Unrepentant's blog on the arrest of James O'Keefe. Who dat, you ask?

JJ quotes from the source:
A conservative activist who posed as a pimp to target the community-organizing group ACORN and the son of a federal prosecutor were among four people arrested by the FBI and accused of trying to interfere with phones at Sen. Mary Landrieu’s office.

Activist James O’Keefe, 25, was already in Landrieu’s New Orleans office Monday when Robert Flanagan and Joseph Basel, both 24, showed up claiming to be telephone repairmen, U.S. Attorney Jim Letten’s office said Tuesday. Letten says O’Keefe recorded the two with his cell phone.

In the comments, J.A. Baker draws our attention to his tweets on the matter.

One of them was 'Shallow Throat'. . .
