Did 60 Senators Violate the Law?

James O'Keefe has been charged under Title 18, Section 1036 of the U.S. Code, which prohibits persons from entering "any real property belonging in whole or in part to, or leased by, the United States... by any fraud or false pretense."

My question is, why hasn't Landrieu been arrested? Didn't she take an oath to uphold the Constitution, but then vote for a health care bill with unconstitutional provisions on December 24?

Didn't all the 60 Senators who voted for it violate the law when they entered their publicly-owned offices on December 24?

Tell you what... Dismiss the charges against O'Keefe and give the 60 Senators a pass this time on their "fine... or imprisonment for not more than 6 months, or both..."

Or charge the Senators, too.

I'm fine with it either way.
