In October 2014 James O’Keefe started Project Veritas Action (PVA), a new group that allows his team to dig deeper into elections, campaigns and the legislation that impacts all Americans.
O’Keefe in an email notes, “As you can imagine, it’s tough getting a new organization off of the ground. It’s really no different from starting a small business. But only days after forming Project Veritas Action, we were generating real results.”
Here’s a six-minute video that recaps Project Veritas Action’s work for 2014:
The following are Project Veritas Action’s achievements:
- In Texas, PVA uncovered violations of election laws by the group, Battleground Texas, which was founded by an Obama campaign operative.
- Moving on to Kentucky, PVA exposed the hypocrisy of Senate Candidate Alison Grimes who appeared to cater to the coal industry but behind the scenes, left her top supporters with the clear impression that as soon as she was elected, she would be the working hard to shutdown the lifeblood of the state.
- Next, PVA focused on the campaign of Mark Pryor who was running for Senate in Arkansas. One important issue to Arkansas votes was gay marriage, which we found Pryor, much like Grimes, presented multiple faces dependent upon the audience. Pryor’s hypocrisy was on display when the chairwoman of the state’s gay caucus disclosed his personal support for gay marriage with no ambiguity.
- In Colorado, PVA found campaign operatives who enthusiastically pointed us in the right direction in committing massive vote fraud.
- Heading down South, PVA focused heavily on North Carolina where multiple campaign workers were all too willing to help illegal immigrants cast a ballot in the election.
- PVA’s final stop was Louisiana, a state whose government needs constant sunlight. There PVA uncovered the ties between corrupt government attorneys and the work they now do for Holder’s Justice Department. Bar complaints were filed and shocked a local democratic official who literally ran for cover.
O’Keefe states, “Conducting our investigations and delivering the results to the public is primarily what we do. It’s up to the media and governments to follow through on what we disclose. That’s the true impact of our work. We could conduct a thousand investigations a year, but if our work does not result in action, I would argue our work is in vain. Thankfully, that’s not the case.”
Here’s a short list of what happened after PVA’s investigations were released:
- The Democratic Senate Campaign Committee, pulled television spending for Senate Candidate Alison Grimes days after our report in Kentucky.
- A Greenpeace official was terminated after she was caught on camera advising our undercover reporter on how to commit voter fraud.
- Pryor polled behind by seven points. After PVA’s investigation in Arkansas, the candidate lost by 17 points.
- Grimes went from a four-point lead to a 16-point loss!
- After PVA’s report in Colorado, Udall polled behind before PVA’s investigation by two points but lost by four points.
- And in North Carolina, Hagan went from a 2 point lead to a 2 point loss.
“I’ve done my best to launch Project Veritas Action as strongly as possible, and I hope you are impressed by the accomplishments of the last few months. But make no mistake, our brand new group will continue operations into 2015 . . . and our plans are big,” writes O’Keefe.
