Project Veritas? More like Project Veryinept!
Admitted felon James O’Keefe is a prominent recipient of “wingnut welfare.” It’s kind of hard to understand who would finance the consistently failed dirty trickster and his bogus “press watchdog” operation, Project Veritas — which has once again screwed up, and bigly.
A woman who falsely claimed to The Washington Post that Roy Moore, the Republican U.S. Senate candidate in Alabama, impregnated her as a teenager appears to work with an organization that uses deceptive tactics to secretly record conversations in an effort to embarrass its targets.
In a series of interviews over two weeks, the woman shared a dramatic story about an alleged sexual relationship with Moore in 1992 that led to an abortion when she was 15. During the interviews, she repeatedly pressed Post reporters to give their opinions on the effects that her claims could have on Moore’s candidacy if she went public.
[O]n Monday morning, Post reporters saw her walking into the New York offices of Project Veritas, an organization that targets the mainstream news media and left-leaning groups. The organization sets up undercover “stings” that involve using false cover stories and covert video recordings meant to expose what the group says is media bias.
And that may be the least of Project Veritas’s problems. Somehow, this article from a couple weeks back didn’t hit out radar, but it has now.
For months, lawsuits have piled up against James O’Keefe, the conservative filmmaker and provocateur, from various targets of his signature undercover videos.
But O’Keefe and his video site Project Veritas have taken some legal action of their own recently — against the insurance company that they claim violated a contractual obligation to pay for mushrooming legal bills.
Now Project Veritas is engaged in a battle with the company it hoped would protect it, a dispute that lays bare the stark challenges faced by O’Keefe for the kind of controversial, litigation-prone hidden camera stings that have made him both a scourge and a conservative media darling.
According to documents, the disagreement now hinges on coverage for four different lawsuits.
Jamie, sweetie, let me give you a little unsolicied advice: when you get sued this frequently, you had ought to consider a different line of work.
