Olbermann also said O’Keefe was on “federal parole after he was charged with [a] felony for attempting to maliciously interfere with Senator [Mary] Landrieu’s office telephone system in New Orleans” and Shuster said that there’s a “rape allegation” against O’Keefe, the Wrap wrote.

Instead, according to the Wrap, O’Keefe argues that “he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor of entering a federal building under false pretenses in connection with the Landrieu incident, and an investigation did not uncover any evidence that O’Keefe and his cohorts actually intended to tamper with Landrieu’s phones.”
