Project Veritas Staffers Release New Statement: They Stand With James O’Keefe

Post by Tyler Durden | Written by Zachary Stieber via The Epoch Times

Staffers at Project Veritas have released a new statement as whistleblowers say they support ousted founder James O’Keefe.

In a Feb. 24 video statement, Project Veritas staffers said they “are at a crossroads” due to the dispute between O’Keefe and the organization’s board of directors.

O’Keefe departed Project Veritas this week after being suspended and stripped of his authority. The board has said it uncovered signs of “financial malfeasance” but that it did not terminate O’Keefe. Staffers said Thursday that supporters should “give us a chance” as they work to continue O’Keefe’s mission.

We want James back,” staffers said in the new video. “But we have a duty to our generous supporters, to all of you, and to our journalistic integrity to break record stories, which impact our culture, and most importantly, the future of our country.

Staffers said they’re committed to continuing working to expose waste, fraud, and abuse, and that “no board or donor ever tells us what to report.

We will never replace James O’Keefe. But for now, we see it as our job to hold the torch for him while keeping the door wide open for his return. We will keep the spirit of James’s mission alive for as long as we are able. We have investigations underway and stories to release. Our reporters are in the field,” they said. “As James has always told us, content is king. Our visionary may not be with us right now, but the Project Veritas mission is vital. We will produce stories and break news until a day may come when we can’t.”

The group acknowledged that many supporters are disenchanted with O’Keefe’s ouster.

We don’t want to see a Project Veritas without James O’Keefe,” they said. “Due to decisions made outside of our control, it’s possible we may never earn back the trust of this audience. But we owe it to all of you to try.”

O’Keefe has said that, after board members rebuffed his request for them to resign, he could not return to the company. In a farewell message to staffers at the group’s headquarters, he said he was planning to “start anew” and that he hoped to see some of the staffers soon.

O’Keefe has since posted several times on Twitter, sharing a new email address for tips.

“Those who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who actually do,” he said in his last update on Feb. 24.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)

1 Comment on Project Veritas Staffers Release New Statement: They Stand With James O’Keefe [Video]

  1. The new statement, allegedly released by current Project Veritas staffers, smells like something the self-serving PV Board would commission from those who elected not to leave with O’Keefe. Smells like they’re getting more desperate about losing more followers, but even more desperate about losing donors. Serves them right. This will be interesting to watch, especially if O’Keefe sues the Board for defamation with regard to their financial malfeasance allegations against him.
