Mary Landrieu's phone system."](CNN) – The conservative videographer who plead guilty to entering federal property under false pretenses following an attempt to access Sen. Mary Landrieu's office phone system says that if given the chance, he'd do it again.
"I'd do it again, I might do it differently," James O'Keefe told ABC's George Stephanopoulos on Tuesday.
"I don't regret what I did," O'Keefe said before adding, "Senators are corrupt, politicians are corrupt. These people have to be investigated."
When asked by Stephanopoulos if he would intentionally break the law again, O'Keefe indicated he would alter his methods.
"I might do it a little differently," O'Keefe said.
O'Keefe is one of four men arrested in January. Two of the group posed as telephone repair workers to get into Landrieu's office while O'Keefe secretly videotaped the incident.
Throughout the interview, O'Keefe defends his methods, saying, "This is not a left or right thing. This is about exposing corruption."
O'Keefe is best known for the films in which he dressed as a pimp and visited the offices of ACORN, which bills itself as an advocacy group for low- and middle-income families, to solicit advice on setting up a brothel, among other scenarios.
He secretly recorded the visits on videotapes that were posted on the Internet, leading to a media firestorm. ACORN announced in March it was shutting down due to a loss of funding.
