A thought occurred to us when we saw reports this afternoon that conservative filmmaker James O'Keefe visited the Occupy Wall Street protest in New York City on Monday: isn't that dude still on probation?
So we looked into it, and according to court records, a judge never approved his trip across the Hudson River and out of the state of New Jersey, where he lives with his parents. A judge has regularly approved all of his trips since hepleaded guilty to entering U.S. property under false pretenses back in May 2010 and received three years probation.
