Looks like the Conservatives here, or even any reasonable Republicans, don't have anything constructive to add to this topic discussion.  Rather telling, IMO.

Trump lies about 70% of the time - that's documented fact.

 

It appears that O'Keefe is an even bigger liar than trump.

 

It also appears that there is a very large percentage of conservative, republican, libertarian, alt-right, JBS, fundamentalist et alia - who give every appearance of being credulous and gullible dolts who do believe trump's lies, O'Keefe's lies - pedo Roy's lies, and all the other right wing lies...

As the Twore-in-Chief has "twitted"....    SAD

   Interesting that none of Donald supporters are screaming that O'Keefe is some of the best information available...as he continues to get supported by big money backers, aka Donald...for just the events that is recently in the news.    Or is it the Mercer / Bannon clan that are his main backers.

 

    Interestingly, the tax form of this guy's company says it is all about ferreting out fraud and abuse..and somehow can't seem to locate itself with either hand.   

 

    Hilariously, Jimmy posted a highly edited video of the WAPO video...now that is waste and abuse, IMO.

This is what FAKE NEWS Conservatives run into when the attempt to spread lies to a REAL jounalistic media outlet.  They get caught as the frauds they are.

 

 

James O'Keefe is like Inspector Clouseau buggering up everything he touches. Good for the Post teaching them not to mess with real journalists who do their homework.Smiley Happy

O'Keefe, The Fraud and Conservative Hero Wanna Be Trying Again

Message 6 of 6

A woman approached The Post with dramatic — and false — tale about Roy Moore. She appears to be part of undercover sting operation.

 

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.

 

The Post did not publish an article based on her unsubstantiated account. When Post reporters confronted her with inconsistencies in her story and an Internet posting that raised doubts about her motivations, she insisted that she was not working with any organization that targets journalists.

 

But on 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.

 

James O’Keefe, the Project Veritas founder who was convicted of a misdemeanor in 2010 for using a fake identity to enter a federal building during a previous sting, declined to answer questions about the woman outside the organization’s offices on Monday morning shortly after the woman walked inside.

 

“I am not doing an interview right now, so I’m not going to say a word,” O’Keefe said.

 

In a follow-up interview, O’Keefe declined to answer repeated questions about whether the woman was employed at Project Veritas. He also did not respond when asked if he was working with Moore, former White House adviser and Moore supporter Stephen K. Bannon, or Republican strategists.

 

The group’s efforts illustrate the lengths to which activists have gone to try to discredit media outlets for reporting on allegations from multiple women that Moore pursued them when they were teenagers and he was in his early 30s. Moore has denied that he did anything improper. 

 

A spokesman for Moore’s campaign did not respond to a message seeking comment.

 

The woman who approached Post reporters, Jaime T. Phillips, did not respond to calls to her cellphone later Monday. Her car remained in the Project Veritas parking lot for more than an hour.

 

The Post positioned videographers outside the group’s office in Mamaroneck, N.Y, after determining that Phillips lives in Stamford, Conn., and realizing that the two locations were just 16 miles apart. Two reporters followed her from her home as she drove to the office.

 

After Phillips was observed entering the Project Veritas office, The Post made the unusual decision to report her previous off-the-record comments.

 

“We always honor ‘off-the-record’ agreements when they’re entered into in good faith,” said Martin Baron, The Post’s executive editor. “But this so-called off-the-record conversation was the essence of a scheme to deceive and embarrass us. The intent by Project Veritas clearly was to publicize the conversation if we fell for the trap. Because of our customary journalistic rigor, we weren’t fooled, and we can’t honor an ‘off-the-record’ agreement that was solicited in maliciously bad faith.”

 

Phillips’s arrival at the Project Veritas office capped a weeks-long effort that began only hours after The Post published an article on Nov. 9 that included allegations that Moore once initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old named Leigh Corfman

 

Post reporter Beth Reinhard, who co-wrote the article about Corfman, received a cryptic email early the next morning.

 

“Roy Moore in Alabama . . . I might know something but I need to keep myself safe. How do we do this?” the apparent tipster wrote under an account with the name “Lindsay James.” 

 

The email’s subject line was “Roy Moore in AL.” The sender’s email address included “rolltide,” the rallying cry of the University of Alabama’s sports teams, which are nicknamed the Crimson Tide. 

Reinhard sent an email asking if the person was willing to talk off the record.

 

“Not sure if I trust the phone,” came the reply. “Can we just stick to email?” 

 

“I need to be confident that you can protect me before I will tell all,” the person wrote in a subsequent email. “I have stuff I’ve been hiding for a long time but maybe it should stay that way.”
