James O'Keefe, who might just be referred to as a “fake pimp” in headlines for the rest of his life, pleaded guilty along with three accomplices for breaking into Sen. Mary Landrieu's office and trying to tamper with her phones. O'Keefe copped to misdemeanor charges of entering federal property under false pretenses, and was sentenced to three years probation, 100 hours of community service, and a $1,500 fine, the AP reports. His cohorts all got two years' probation and 75 hours of service. (More James O'Keefe stories.)
