ACORN should be suing O'Keefe and Operation Veritas, and California should be going after O'Keefe for breaking the law by recording Vera without permission (as noted in the article, this was a criminal act in CA).

O'Keefe is the very definition of morally bankrupt

It is also illuminating to know that O'Keefe and his handlers have determined that it was worth at least $100,000 to avoid publicly losing a court case, and thus further tarnishing the James O'Keefe "folk hero" fundraising brand with a guilty verdict directly related to sloppy journalism.

Even that's entirely too gracious.  Unless we consider politically-themed Punk'd gags "journalism" now.

James O'Keefe-the blonde bombshell who set the conservative world of hidden-camera YouTube movies ablaze-has just agreed to a $100,000 settlement to calm down the unjustly fired (and weirdly litigious about it) ACORN employee Juan Carlos Vera

Shocking.

What saddens me is that it's only morally.  How the fark does this walking turd get his hands on $100K?

That's what I came here to ask. According to the court documents his pay from Breitbart was only in the range of $60-70K, and I am sure that has all been spent on rubber products already.

James!: How long until he starts soliciting for donations to pay the settlement?


You think he'll pay a penny of his own money for this?  $100,000 is cheap to obliterate an orgainzation you hate.
 
2013-03-08 12:30:18 PM  
I get the feeling that James O'Keefe is going to be spending the rest of his life defending himself from progressive crusaders attempting to film him doing something they can edit into something stupid.

(O'Keefe happens to enter a 7-11 at the same time as his Mom.) "And here, James O'Keefe is seen entering the whorehouse with the prostitute..."

As mentioned above $100k is CHEAP for taking down government institutions that dare to help poor people.  All you need is a clueless patsy who thinks he's hot shiat and will crapflame in the direction you point him in.

Patsy O'Keefe.  Got a nice ring to it, doesn't it?

At a guess, he's known to be a part of the Corporate aristocracy so his parents could pay it easy, and I am quite sure that a number of his "projects" have been demanding donations from the obedient peasantry in the GOP.  Grandmothers and uncles sending chain letters with the words, "Help us stop the liberal liars!  Donate now and pass it on!"

*checks "project veritas" website*

Yep, big ol' donation button right at the top.  Along with their side of the story.  Essentially, "waaah we're victims!"

Punishing someone for saying something is opposing free speech.  The fact that said speech was a lie, that it caused real-world damage to someone else, and that the punishment was a civil lawsuit are all irrelevant because they don't help the narrative.

It's very common to hear, on Fark, that a guy has a "punch-able" face. Generally speaking I would recommend hitting those guys in the face with a 2x4 and not risk hurting your hand. This guy, O'Keefe, is a special case. He really needs to have something tattooed on his forehead to warn people he encounters that he is a sleazy operator.
It would be a public service.

Perhaps there are people in Congress who will introduce a bill to fund O'Queef's legal bill.  I mean, they were so enthusiastic to pass a resolution honoring this slime, whose face makes a sledgehammer giddy to be used.

I'm not sure how much photoshop training it takes to make an image with a demonic Obama shoving the Constitution into a shredder with one hand while the other hand holds Jesus' head in a bucket labeled "Arab Buttholes" on one side and with Lincoln and Washington giving a thumbs-up to a crying eagle driving a monster truck crushing a minaret on the other side with the caption "WILL YOU HELP?"

MmmmBacon: ACORN should be suing O'Keefe and Operation Veritas, and California should be going after O'Keefe for breaking the law by recording Vera without permission (as noted in the article, this was a criminal act in CA).


He managed to convince CA to give him immunity in exchange for turning over the full and unedited footage so CA would be able to prosecute the ACORN employees who appeared to commit serious crimes.

By the time the CA prosecutors discovered the  unedited footage contained no evidence against the ACORN employees once everything was in context O'Keefe already had immunity.

I didn't know he'd managed that, since I didn't pay much attention at the time. I'm sorta impressed.

Actually it is called accepting the responsibility of your right to say it. His 1st only applies to this when he gets taken out in a drone strike sanctioned by Obama.
He is still free to say what he said, he just has to pay the price civil society put on being a proven lying DB.

While I enjoy Neal Stephenson's books and I like literary allusions as much as the next guy, I think going with "Lying Douche" is the better choice. "Sneaky Lying Bastard" also comes to mind. It has to be short though, and get the point across on the first reading. Oh, and it has to be really LARGE.

List of things James O'Keefe still has to apologize for:

- Stealing his mom's pimp coat.

- Stealing his mom's panties.
- Not being dead.
