Will John Campbell revoke his support of James O’Keefe?

Back when James O’Keefe was the darling of the conservati, Rep. John Cambell (R-Irvine) was one of 31 Republican congressional representatives who signed on to a House Resolution praising the conservative activist for his “journalism” in a series of videos that took aim at ACORN.  House Resolution 809 is about “Honoring the fact-finding reporting done by Hannah Giles and James O’Keefe III in their investigation in the fraudulent and illegal practices and misuse of taxpayer dollars by the Association of Community Organization for Reform Now (ACORN).”

Last month, O’Keefe shed his dime-store pimp costume for a jail jumpsuit.  O’Keefe and others face charges of entering federal property under false pretenses with the intent of committing a felony.  O’Keefe and his associates disguied themselves as telehone repair men and asked for access to Senator Mary Landreau’s phone system without any sort of proper identification.  Unlike Watergate, this isn’t a wiretapping charge but it’s clearly an attempt to access and possibly interfere with the Senator’s phone system by the suspects who requested access to the phone closet “to perform repair work.”

Campbell, who ripped President Obama’s handling of the underwear bomber as an example of Democrats being soft on terrorism, has yet to speak out against this breach of security by a fellow conservative.  Ironically, if O’Keefe had wanted to know about a member of Congress who was unresponsive to calls on healthcare reform from voters, he need look no further than the OC offices of Congressman John Campbell who held no town halls on healthcare reform and actually had Irvien Company security personnel deny access to a group of advocates who had an appointment to see Campbell.

So, will Campbell withdraw his support of O’Keefe in House Resolution 809 or is this another example of IOKIYAR (It’s OK if you’re a Republican)?
