San Francisco Commonwealth Club postpones O’Keefe event.

James O'Keefe Controversial right-wing activist James O’Keefe, whom the FBI recently arrested for trying to tamper with Sen. Mary Landrieu’s (D-LA) phones, was supposed to hold his first public event since getting out of jail at the San Francisco Commonwealth Club today. But that event has now been “postponed.” The Commonwealth Club’s Director of Public Relations, Riki Rafner, told ThinkProgress that O’Keefe “could no longer make the event in person and he chose to postpone it until he could.” However, the San Francisco Chronicle notes that the club is willing to reschedule when O’Keefe is ready. The Salt Lake County GOP also recently canceled O’Keefe as its featured speaker at its Lincoln Day Dinner on Feb. 4.


Emptywheel points out that O’Keefe is scheduled to be on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show tonight.
