On loyalty

You gotta love lawyers - they'll stand by their clients no matter how hopeless it looks. Example: four men are caught with a bag of electronic surveillance gear, after pretending to be repairmen so they could get access to the telephones in a Democratic senator's offices. The men are well-known political activists, with views opposite to those of said senator.

The lawyer: "I think it was poor judgment. I don't think there was any intent or motive to commit a crime."

[Update: because he got caught before completing the task, O'Keefe's lawyer can say with a straight face, ""There was no wire-tapping, bugging or interfering with the phone system." ]
