James O’Keefe‘s foray into filmmaking may cost him a few years in the slammer.
O’Keefe and fellow conservative activist/budding investigative journalist Hannah Giles were the ones who dressed up like a pimp and a prostitute, respectively (or not), and went to the offices of the Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now (ACORN) in D.C. and Baltimore looking for advice on how to buy a house.
The resulting video caused quite a commotion and resulted in the firing of four ACORN employees, as well as other repercussions for those who support the organization.
In Maryland, it’s against the law to tape a person without their prior permission. It’s also illegal to “willfully use or willfully disclose the content of said audio,” Baltimore City State Attorney Patricia Jessamy said in a statement released late Friday.
She added: “The penalty for the unlawful interception, disclosure or use of it is a felony punishable up to five years.”
The Baltimore City State Attorney’s Office is investigating the matter
NOTE: No word from the State Attorney’s Office on any investigation into ACORN.
