Right-wing punk on parade

Posted By on Tue, Sep 6, 2011 at 6:25 AM

The Koch boys front group, Americans for Prosperity, and their local media mouthpiece, Dave Elswick are touting a Little Rock visit by right-wing provocateur James O'Keefe, whose dishonestly edited hit video led to the unraveling of ACORN and whose subsequent sneak videos, among others, won him a federal court conviction and national embarrassment for a "seduction" planned for a TV reporter.

He'll speak at a luncheon Sept. 28 at Argenta Community Theater. Tickets are $20.

What are the odds he'll allow himself to be recorded on video?

SPEAKING OF THE KOCHS AND RECORDINGS: Mother Jones has an expose from an undercover audio tape of Koch brothers fund-raising session/pep rally last summer in Colorado.
