In their counter, Gemini said Veritas their claims didn't fall within that policy because the group "misrepresented itself in its insurance application: specifically, Gemini said that Project Veritas reported that it had obtained consent from people appearing in its videos."

i'm not sure o'keefe actually bothered to read the details on his insurance coverage.  then again, like most right wing types o'keefe isn't particularly bright.

He doesn't appear to realize that lying to people can come back to bite you on the ass. No matter how much Trump gets away with it.

I wonder if o'keefe's lawyer has reminded him that lying under oath and/or during a deposition is an incredibly BAD thing to do?  o'keefe really does strike me as being profoundly arrogant and incredibly stupid.  He seems to think that being a massive asshole and blatant shill for conservatism somehow makes him immune to the consequences of his actions.

He's going to find out the hard way that actions do indeed have consequences, and that he's not going to be able to avoid them.

which, ironically enough, might actually put o'keefe into an even WORSE position than he's in right now.  accepting a pardon would constitute a legally binding admission of guilt.  say hello to many state level charges and probably a couple/few more civil suits on the way should that manage to occur.

Nope, he was responsible for both. He also "stung" NPR and he and his buddies tried to sneak into Mary Landrieu's office disguised as telephone repairmen.

if anything, I think accepting a criminal pardon while in the middle of a civil suit might actually cause more trouble than it solved, at least for o'keefe.  he really is a whiny little snotling.  there are very few people in this world that i'd be willing to go to jail over, but O'keefe is one I'd happily beat down into the mud and be quite cooperative when the cops showed up to arrest me over it.  Pharma bro is another in that category.

He didn't even actually wear the crazy pimp outfit for the ACORN thing, just for his appearance on Fox and Friends.

I'll say this for O'Keefe: he is exactly, and I mean EXACTLY, what I envision when someone mentions "a young Conservative".

I doubt O'Keefe is even on Trump's radar. Veritas hasn't had a big "success" in years.
 
2017-11-09 05:56:03 AM  
O'Keefe decided he had made it to the big leagues, where you can say whatever you want with no consequences. Accuse a Purple Heart combat veteran, for example, of being a cowardly deserter, then deny you were behind it. Or brag about sexual assault and then threaten to sue the women who say, "Yes, he assaulted me" while adding, "She would not be my first choice, believe me."

But he is not in the big leagues.

Womp womp.

So O'Keefe's idea of romance includes condom jars, dildos and Alicia Keys music.

No, subby, he did not learn 'personal responsibility.'

'Blaming' is all he has ever done, or ever will. That's why Fox hired him.

Pop quiz hotshot; you get to lace up a 16oz and punch James O'Keefe or Martin Shkreli square in the fart detector.  Who do you choose?

o'keefe can pretend he's innocent as much as he likes.  the court system tho....yeah, they tend to take their judgements kinda serious.  so while O'keefe might pretend he didn't lose his case and have to pony up all that money out of his own pocket, the court system WILL enforce its ruling no matter what.

While the courts may find him guilty, and he (or his backers) may pay a penalty, he will go to his grave screaming "victim" - just like Bill O'Reilly.

I think so, yes.  esp if his latest brilliant plan falls thru and he ends up being on the hook to pay those fines himself.

but if you were looking for some sort of self awareness and guilt - forget it.  this kid is a gotdamn sociopath.

Frankly, we should all start remembering him as the guy who tried to punk a female journalist by trying to seduce her with a boat filled with sex toys.

What was his plan exactly. . .? I'm not sure, but it didn't seem to occur to O'Keefe that that plan was repugnant, and that there was even a remote chance the lady could turn him down. It was so skeezy, that his own cohorts exposed him on that one.

Poor baby.

I'm inclined to assume the best intentions when dealing with people. When all pretense is dropped, indeed when people burn the bridge as they walk across it, all pretense is abandoned and my assumptions vanish with it. Whatever pity or charity I could have had for a fellow human went up in smoke.

How sad for him. I'll shed my tears elsewhere, thanks.

/tl;dr - i just don't like him

Like seriously. Calling him the ACORN guy still gives him too much credence. We should really just be calling him 'the sex boat would-be rapist'.

O'Keefe never grew out of that phase.

I'm curious. The insurance company is claiming he misrepresented his actions to them in order to get insured. Why isn't this toad facing insurance fraud charges?

4 things required for fraud. This is only one. It's a reason to deny the claim for material misrep, but it doesn't constitute fraud at this point.

Clearly, but as an insurance fraud specialist this doesn't constitute fraud. This is just a case of misrep which will void the contract and release the insurer from having to indemnify or defend him.
