By this point you’ve likely heard of James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas. But what is it? And why is it important? Project Veritas Action Fund is an organization founded by James O’Keefe “to investigate and expose corruption, dishonesty, self-dealing, waste, fraud and other misconduct.” According to their website, their mission is “to further the common good and general welfare of the citizens of the United States by conducting investigations into waste, fraud, abuse, corruption, dishonesty, self-dealing and other misconduct for the purpose of educating the public, stakeholders, policymakers and communities in order to create a more ethical and transparent society.”
Recently, they have begun to release a series of undercover videos recorded over the last year. These videos provide damning evidence against the Democratic National Committee and the super PACs and presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton. They give a raw and terrifying look into the manipulation, bribery, fraud, and other unethical practices of lead individuals within the party and peripheral organizations.
Why is the mainstream media calling James O’Keefe a criminal?
Before he founded Project Veritas Action Fund, James O’Keefe produced videos about Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). ACORN eventually was defunded and failed. However, evidence later came out that O’Keefe had edited the videos in such a way as to misrepresent what had occurred. He apologized and paid a large settlement to the accused ACORN employee.
Other smaller projects have been met with similar criticism, and O’Keefe was convicted of a misdemeanor for trespassing in an effort to do a similar sting. However, does that negate the validity of the most recent videos produced and released by Project Veritas? Many both in the media and the DNC have attempted to say that it does. But, as Townhall editor Guy Benson said of the DNC operatives, they “got fired awfully quickly” if there wasn’t truth to these new videos.
