January 13, 2012- CNN contributor and conservative radio host Dana Loesch said on her show that she not only thinks the Marines who urinated on dead Taliban soldiers are cool, but she'd be willing to join them.
After playing a news clip describing the video, Loesch said, "I'd drop trou and do it too. That's me, though. I want a million cool points for these guys." She wondered why there was any kind of scandal surrounding the incident.
"C'mon people, this is a war," she said. "Do I have a problem with that as a citizen of the United States? No, I don't."

Talking Points Memo: Election Law Experts Say James O’Keefe Allies Could Face Charges Over Voter Fraud Stunt
-by Ryan J. Reilly
January 11, 2012- It was one of the few — if not the only — coordinated efforts to attempt in-person voter fraud, and it was pulled off by affiliates of conservative activist James O’Keefe at polling places in New Hampshire Tuesday night. All of it part of an attempt to prove the need for voter ID laws that voting rights experts say have a unfair impact on minority voters.
Now election law experts tell TPM that O’Keefe’s allies could face criminal charges on both the federal and state level for procuring ballots under false names, and that his undercover sting doesn’t demonstrate a need for voter ID laws at all.

December 22, 2011- The Record reporter Chris Harris appeared on Countdown with Keith Olbermann on Thursday night to discuss the possible civil sexual harassment lawsuit against conservative filmmaker James O’Keefe.
Conservative blogger Nadia Naffe accused O’Keefe of sending her harassing messages after she backed out of an upcoming hidden camera sting on the “Occupy Wall Street” protest in New York City. Judge Alan Karch dismissed the criminal complaint against O’Keefe because there was insufficient evidence showing the harassment originated in Westwood, where O’Keefe lives with his parents.
“Ultimately, he couldn’t prove that all of it stemmed or originated from his jurisdiction,” Harris explained. “So therefore the charges wouldn’t stick in his court.”
But the judge informed her that she could pursue a civil complaint.
