New Campaign For Accountability sticky icon is a new campaign to seek accountability for the violations of criminal law committed by Andrew Breitbart, James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles. O’Keefe and Giles illegally and surreptitiously recorded employees of the Baltimore ACORN office in the summer of 2009 and then their employer Breitbart illegally published their edited versions online in order to harm ACORN.  This is a grassroots campaign to let law enforcement officials in Maryland know that ordinary citizens want accountability. 

Since that illegal conduct occurred, numerous official reports have come out showing that O'Keefe, Giles and Breitbart acted illegally/unethically with regard to their ACORN recordings. Those reports are listed here. Also, James O'Keefe has been arrested and convicted for tampering with the phones in Senator Mary Landrieu's office, and he is under investigation for attempting to lure a CNN reporter on to a boat in Maryland for nefarious purposes. Andrew Breitbart was responsible for posting an edited recording of Department of Agriculture employee Shirley Sherrod which resulted in her improper firing. A subsequent investigation determined that she did nothing wrong and should be reinstated.

You can help hold these people accountable for violating Maryland law by signing this letter to Gregg Bernstein, the new Baltimore State's Attorney.

James O'Keefe death rumors are a hoax.

If you've heard any rumors about conservative weasel James O'Keefe dying in an attempt to sexually molest a horse, the source is the Teabilly parody site below: 

As far as anyone knows, O'Keefe is still alive and well, and will probably crawl out from under his rock again soon...

Have You Seen This Man?

Indict Breitbart is cooperating with law enforcement agencies that have opened criminal investigations into illegal activity by James O'Keefe's Project Veritas at the DC Board of Elections and that this person has been identified as the man who entered the BOE on April 3rd, falsely identified himself, and surreptitiously video recorded BOE staffers. We are offering a $500.00 reward for a positive ID on this man.

Epic Breitbart Revisited

-Posted today by political cartooninst and friend of the site Mike Flugennock

June 14, 2012- A couple of weeks ago, my comrade Isis hipped me to this pants-pissing hilarious article in Wonkette about this absurdly overwrought portrait by David Bugnon, glorifying recently-deceased rightist “journalist” Andrew Breitbart as a Nordic knight. Posters and postcards of this hysterical tribute were available for purchase at Patriot Depot, your one-stop shop for all your right-wing drama-queen kitsch needs, for the bargain price of $3999.95. (Such a deal! I’ll take two!)

Now, those of you who know me and my work know that there was no way in hell I could ever resist parodying this great heaping sloppy slab of fanboy bilge.

Epic Breitbart Revisited II

When we first became aware of the... shall we say, idealized  picture of Andrew Breitbart above, we couldn't help but be reminded of another portrait in the same romantic vein- another "man of the people", with a similar understanding of the use of propaganda to influence ideas and events. Interesting that two artists so many decades apart should view them in such similar light...

And yet, as Wonkette  might remind us, in 1934 you actually had to do your own painting...

Shirley Sherrod: My Prayers Go Out To Brietbart's Family

Shirley Sherrod, who was a primary target of Andrew Breitbart's criticism, released the following statement on the conservative media icon's death:

"The news of Mr. Breitbart's death came as a surprise to me when I was informed of it this morning. My prayers go out to Mr. Breitbart's family as they cope through this very difficult time."

Andrew Breitbart dead at 43

March 1, 2012- Andrew Bretibart died today during a pitched Twitter war defending James O’Keefe. We have long advocated for accountability in the courts for Mr. Breitbart and Mr. O’Keefe because of their lawlessness, intolerance and smear campaigns. Sometimes, however, accountability comes in other ways from a greater power than the courts.

Mr. Breitbart carried hate in his heart. He raged at liberals, Occupiers, Muslims, Democrats, and women. He used his mouthpiece to cause divisions and to foment violence. He caused immeasurable hurt and suffering to a great many people. Last month, he spewed invectives and blind rage at the CPAC Conference, causing many people, mostly on the left, to call for him to seek professional help for himself. Instead, he continued raging against his imagined enemies until his heart could no longer take it.

EXCLUSIVE AUDIO: Andrew Breitbart says Occupy has a 'culture of rape' and ACORN is paying 'unsafe people' to occupy

Andrew Breitbart is the Andrew Breitbart of the tea party movement

-Posted on Eclectablog, February 26, 2012-

On Saturday, February 25th, LOLGOP and I attended the Americans for Prosperity forum in Troy, Michigan (home of homophobic tea party mayor Janice Daniels.) We obtained press passes and proceeded to livetweet and liveblog the event. (My liveblog, done entirely on my iPhone, is here: LIVEBLOG: Americans for Prosperity forum in Troy, Michigan 2/25/12.)

For the most part, the people at the AFP forum were very nice to us. Perhaps it's because we had a "Media" badges on but, more than likely, it was despite that, given the sneering way "the media" was treated by speakers such as Andrew Breitbart and Michelle Malkin.
