James O’Keefe

James O’Keefe is the Founder and President of Project Veritas, a non-profit organization dedicated to developing a national network of effective and courageous undercover citizen journalists. O’Keefe’s groundbreaking investigations have exposed corruption and malfeasance in major taxpayer-funded institutions, including ACORN, Planned Parenthood, public education, labor unions, NPR, Medicaid, Organizing for America, State Election Divisions, Obamaphones, and many other organizations. And this crucial work continues. O’Keefe’s undercover investigations have generated media firestorms that frequently prompt state investigations, federal inquiries, and congressional action. Investigations into entitlements have led to worker retrainings, firings and criminal investigations by authorities. Recently, O’Keefe’s voter fraud exposés inspired several states to reform their election laws, induced high-level resignations in Washington, and forcing FBI and Department of Justice officials to defend themselves before lawmakers. Even the left-Nation wrote, “O’Keefe’s influence on voting rights opponents and legislators alike is particularly jarring.” Slate.com conceded, “O’Keefe has had more of an impact on the 2012 election than any other journalist.” And O’Keefe succeeded despite constant threats of legal action from embarrassed State Attorney Generals and relentless defamation from major media. In 2013, O’Keefe authored The New York Times bestselling book Breakthrough: Our Guerilla War to Expose Fraud and Save Democracy, which tells the true story of subverting a corrupt and complacent media establishment, surviving many gratuitous legal challenges, and restoring truth to journalism by successfully pioneering a new form of guerilla reporting. O’Keefe is a graduate of Rutgers University. A congressional resolution was introduced in 2009 with 31 cosponsors praising him for his work. He is the recipient of the Robert Novak Award for Journalistic Excellence (2011), has been named “Fox News Power Player of the Week” twice by Chris Wallace, and was placed on the Forbes 30 under 30 for media moguls.
