ACORN Slayer James O’Keefe’s Citizen Journalism Group Gets Tax-Exempt Status from IRS
The New York Times reports that James O’Keefe III has secured tax-exempt status for his nonprofit citizen journalism group Project Veritas.
With Hannah Giles, O’Keefe ran the undercover video sting that exposed the corruption of ACORN, President Obama’s former employer and legal client. More recently he ran a video sting that showed NPR’s willingness to accept donations from Islamofascists.
From the NYT report:
“It will help us expand as an organization and institution,” Mr. O’Keefe said in an interview on Thursday.
He said the money saved with the status would help Project Veritas train and equip “an army” of citizen journalists to carry out its mission: “to investigate and expose corruption, dishonesty, self-dealing, waste, fraud and other misconduct in both public and private institutions in order to achieve a more ethical and transparent society.”
I interviewed O’Keefe for my new book Subversion Inc.: How Obama’s ACORN Red Shirts are Still Terrorizing and Ripping Off American Taxpayers. He offered his unique insights.
