James O’Keefe, the founder of Project Veritas, released a press statement announcing that he had gotten a retraction from a Yahoo News reporter, who had attempted to discredit the group’s recent work exposing a ballot harvesting scheme in US rep. Ilhan Omar’s Minnesota district.
“This is where journalists’ reputations are sent to die. Where we post our retractions,” O’Keefe said, prior to playing his awesome “Retracto” theme song.
“John Ward, the Senior Political Reporter at Yahoo News, was trying to undermind our journalism by claiming that our group alleged illegal harvesting, but we showed it, we didn’t allege it,” O’Keefe said.
“He had to update his article, ” O’Keefe said, “that is going on our wall of shame”.
The video is quite witty. However, the topic is somber.
The focus of O’Keefe’s Ballot Harvesting investigation was arrested for ballot harvesting and faced 20 years in prison, according to O’Keefe. His press statement follows:
On Friday, “Project Veritas is inducting Yahoo’s Senior Political Correspondent Jon Ward to our infamous Wall of Shame. Ward, like other “journalists” before him, claimed that Minnesota law allowed for an individual to harvest more than three ballots at a time. Obviously, that’s fake news. You can watch my response to Ward here”:
In the statement, O’Keefe said:
“Hey Jon, do your homework before you attack Project Veritas’ credibility.
All you had to do was look up basic laws in place in Minnesota, but your emotions and dislike for Project Veritas spoke louder, unfortunately.
These media people are what they hate. They project onto me what they are.
Now, Ward’s retraction is just another portrait we will be adding to our Wall of Shame. It will live there forever.”
Project Veritas produced a three-part series on the Omar campaign’s connection with balloting harvesting in her most recent election to office.
LEADING BALLOT HARVESTER
I covered that story here:
“James O’Keefe, the founder and CEO of Project Veritas, an undercover activist group of citizen journalists and investigators, has exposed US Rep.
Ilhan Omar’s connection to a voter fraud scheme called “Ballot Harvesting,” with videos that expose people close to Omar confessing to illegal activating in her last election. Ballot harvesting is expected to be a serious problem for the 2020 General Election in November, adding urgency to this expose of O’Keefe’s, which should cause Americans to take note of the broader Ballot Harvest schemes of the Democrat Party.”
Yahoo News had attempted to give cover to Omar’s campaign and thereby help Omar avoid public scrutiny, which is one of the roles mainstream media, like yahoo, provides to assist the established media.
The way Democrats harvest Ballots is a critical issue for the American voter to understand because it, in fact, causes hundreds of millions of Americans to have their real voters disenfranchised.
Project Veritas has been using its platform to educate Americans on the corruption behind Ballot Harvesting:
“UNBELIEVABLE: @MaggieAstor claims @Project_Veritas #BallotHarvesting video was “deceptive” because she couldn’t “verify” unnamed sources. Lawyers now ADMIT that “using unnamed sources is a common journalistic practice and generally accepted” #ExposeNYT”
