James O'Keefe "allies": “We were... sold a false bill of goods.” O'Keefe was "desperate [for] money & needing to rehabilitate his reputation.”

Little Jimmy Olsen wannabe James O'Keefe (all our posts about him are here) has a bit of a mutiny on his hands.

If you're unfamiliar with this sleazebag, he's a smug, bratty, self-serving, attention-starved, needy little fraud he's been over the years. ACORN‘s gone, in no small part because his efforts; he’s had his sick idea of fun with NPR; he’s already stuck his greedy, grimy little hand out for donations; avoided the very same cameras he feels free to turn on others; squirmed out of more serious charges thanks to connections; and did his level best to punk a CNN correspondent. He also failed to answer my friend and radio host Nicole Sandler's questions when she confronted him face to face.

Now his own allies are fed up with his slipshod, self-serving ways. Via The Daily Beast:

In a series of interviews with The Daily Beast, [Simon] Templar says he had designed the [NPR] effort to be “a very thoroughly researched and impeccably executed project that was by no means limited to NPR. James wanted it to be a hit job.”

What’s more, says Templar, O’Keefe “didn’t seem to care about the reasons why we were doing this. All he cared about was that he had people saying embarrassing stuff on video. I came to learn how desperate he was in terms of money and needing to rehabilitate his reputation.”

Shaughn Adeleye, who worked with Templar in posing as another member of the phony Muslim group, also disagreed with O’Keefe’s tactics. “We were both sold a false bill of goods,” says Adeleye, who devised the NPR scheme and persuaded O’Keefe to adopt it.

The details are at DB, the delusions are inside O'Keefe's head.

Even his suit looks phony, like a really cheesy Wall Street executive Halloween costume. According to Gawker (video of him lurking around are at this link), he didn't appear to be trying to film anything at the time that this video was shot.

Here are our previous O'Keefe posts. A scroll through them will illustrate what a smug, bratty, self-serving, attention-starved, needy little fraud he's been over the years. ACORN‘s gone, in no small part because of this Jimmy Olsen wannabe; he’s had his sick idea of fun with NPR; he’s already stuck his greedy, grimy little hand out for donations; avoided the very same cameras he feels free to turn on others; squirmed out of more serious charges thanks to connections; and did his level best to punk a CNN correspondent.

Ohio workers caught in James O'Keefe's "sting" suspended

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Huzzah!! More peoples lives ruined by O'Keefe's mighty sword of shitty editing!!

County officials have suspended two Ohio workers over an online video that appeared to show them inappropriately advising men posing as Russian drug dealers about Medicaid benefits.

The Columbus Dispatch reports Franklin County commissioners voted 2-1 on Tuesday to approve five-day suspensions for a job-and-family-services aide and her supervisor.

Undercover video posted by the conservative group Project Veritas showed the two men discussing their drug dealing and prostitution of underage girls. The aide is show apparently suggesting the men hide ownership of an $800,000 car.

The truth?

Given that most of the videos are edited and that we only see an "uncut" version of one of them, it does not appear that O'Keefe has uncovered "widespread" fraud. The workers in the videos help the men through the Medicaid application process and do not guarantee eligibility for their father. In the edited videos, we do not see the full responses of the workers.

The Columbus worker does assure the two men in the video that they are not at risk of having their homes searched, something they purported to be concerned about. She also suggests that the men leave the expensive car off of their father's Medicaid application if it is not registered in the U.S.

VIDEO: Nicole Sandler interviews James O'Keefe who could only respond with, "Are you defaming me?"

My friend and radio host Nicole Sandler is at Netroots Nation, and bumped smack dab into parolee and fraud, James O'Keefe. Please go to her site to read more, but here is the video that she recorded herself, with her own Flip cam, and it is completely unedited. Please watch all the way to the end.

Wow, what a smug, condescending, unresponsive little brat. He is clearly a coward who relies on his "bodyguards" (my word) to shield him from those who want nothing more than to get to the truth, a concept that is impossible for him to grasp.

Nicole pushed harder than any other interviewer I've seen. If only more journalists would be as persistent.
