Four conservative activists pleaded guilty to entering federal property under false pretenses.  They were accused of tampering with the phones in Senator Mary Landrieu’s office.

[O’Keefe] was sentenced to three years probation, 100 hours of community service and a $1,500 fine.

The FBI has said O’Keefe used his cell phone to try to capture video of two others who posed as telephone repairmen and asked to see the phones at Landrieu’s office. The fourth allegedly waited outside in a car with a listening device

O’Keefe has said the group was trying to investigate complaints that constituents calling Landrieu’s office couldn’t get through to criticize the Democrat’s support of a health care reform bill.

The others are Stan Dai, Joseph Basel and Robert Flanagan, who along with O’Keefe, were originally arrested on felony charges, but federal prosecutors later reduced those charges.
