James O’Keefe says he’s broke. On Saturday, the 26-year old conservative provocateur — whose videos have embarrassed NPR and ACORN — sent out an e-mail to supporters, seeking cash-on-the-quick, reports Talking Points Memo. How much? Well, $50,000 would be nice. "Up 'til now, my friends and I have financed all of our work on our own-- running up major credit card debt," O'Keefe wrote. If donors are feeling generous, they can cough up even more: $100,000 for two more exposes; a bunch more if you have a spare million. "We're ready and waiting to expose more government corruption. But --it all comes down to money.” Apparently those pimp costumes don’t come cheap.
