O'Keefe not so keen on being videotaped

What's sauce for the goose, apparently isn't sauce for the gander. The TPMMuckraker reports
James O'Keefe, the conservative activist who made his name with a string of undercover video sting operations, doesn't like it so much when the camera is turned on him.

Speaking to around 100 members of the Bayshore Tea Party in New Jersey Thursday night, O'Keefe reportedly had members of the group ask a photographer from the Asbury Park Press to leave the event.
Could it be that people actually have a right not to be videotaped?

His photograph distributed would limit his ability to assume other identities for future "projects". My ideologies are not sympathetic to those Mr. O'Keefe has targeted. So I hope he will continue his efforts. Use of hidden cameras is often seen on Frontline and similar programs.

The TPM article states that still pictures were allowed; it was only videotaping that was prohibited.
