James O'Keefe went on Sean Hannity's Fox News show last night and was sticking to his story: He and his gang of "phone repairmen" were just there to try to get to the bottom of Landrieu's claim that her phone lines were jammed.

But when Hannity asked him to describe the arrest and the facts of the case in detail, he clammed up, saying it was the subject of a federal investigation? Well, yeah, but if that's a problem, why go on a national news show in the first place?

Most of all, he not only refused to corroborate Andrew Bretibart's claims that he was held without access to an attorney, but he contradicted Brietbart's conspiracy theory that the DOJ was out to get him by saying: "I have no complaints about how the U.S. attorney is handling this."

These guys need to get their stories straight, dontcha think?

Can you help us out?
