So who are the four geniuses who got arrested by the FBI yesterday for—apparently—trying to tap the phone of a sitting U.S. senator?
Accomplices, Accessories, and the Implicated

But he's paying alleged wiretap plotter O'Keefe "a fair salary" (cough).
The Right Wing Spin

Warning: The preposterousness of the right wing in this article could make your sides split from all the mirth.
Despite the fact that four men hatched a plot (which they admitted to) to impersonate telephone repairmen, three of whom entered a federal building while one remained in a car nearby with a "listening device," and allegedly attempted to bug the office of a US Senator, some people on the right actually think that James O'Keefe and gang were somehow entrapped.
