WASHINGTON — At the end of a press conference Tuesday in which conservative filmmaker James O’Keefe unveiled a new sting video about Hillary Clinton, one reporter had just one question:
“Are you sure it’s not a joke?” she asked. (Huffington Post)
Now you know how corrupt it is.
Conservative video-maker James O’Keefe’s — best known for selectively editing undercover footage to get people fired — claimed another victim on Monday, after his Project Veritas group released the first in what he says will be a series of undercover videos revealing corruption within Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
In several surreptitiously recorded video conversations, Scott Foval, the former national field director at Americans United for Change, admits to “bird dogging” — planting agitators at — Donald Trump’s rallies to draw negative media attention.
Foval describes colluding with Bob Creamer, co-founder of consulting group Democracy Partners, to “put people in the line, at the front . . . to get in front at the rally, so that when Trump comes down the rope line, they’re the ones asking him the question in front of the reporter, because they’re pre-placed there.”
“To funnel that kind of operation, you have to start back with people two weeks ahead of time and train them how to ask questions,” Foval explains. “You have to train them to bird dog.”
Among Foval’s trainees, he says, are “mentally ill people, that we pay to do shit.”
“Over the last 20 years, I’ve paid off a few homeless guys to do some crazy stuff, and I’ve also taken them for dinner, and I’ve also made sure they had a hotel, and a shower. And I put them in a program,” he brags. “Like, I’ve done that.”
Americans United for Change subsequently cut ties with Foval, according to a statement from the group’s head, Brad Woodhouse.
O’Keefe and Project Veritas have been criticized in the past, however, for strategically editing footage to make false accusations.
You mean like Katie “Cupcake” Couric and her agenda hit piece. CNN and other caught editing comments and footage… Oh, right, The Left can do it and their no consequence because after all, they are Home Superior Liberalis and are entitled to lie, cheat and steal because they are so superior to us mere mortals…
