Scumbags Infamous For ‘Sting’ Operations Against Liberals Target Hillary, Get Exposed Immediately

Project Veritas, a collection of conservative serial misinformers who target liberal groups as part of a broad scheme to influence elections and push conservative values through lies, is being singled out as the likely culprit of a series of embarrassingly shoddy attempts to hurt Hillary Clinton’s campaign. The plans, such as they were, failed spectacularly, but Clinton’s staff has reportedly been told to remain on high alert now that it has become quite obvious conservatives are so worried about her electoral chances that they will do just about anything to stop her.

According to Clinton campaign officials:

In one scheme, described by Clinton staff, a woman attempted to pass a cash donation to Clinton volunteers and interns. In another, a woman approached the campaign on Aug. 19 and said both her parents had donated to Clinton the legal maximum of $2700 each and wanted to funnel an additional donation through their daughter, a violation of federal law. On Aug. 13, a woman claiming to be Canadian approached another Clinton fellow to ask how to falsify an address for a campaign donation.

In another instance, a woman volunteering with the Clinton campaign on voter registration efforts in Iowa City returned to the campaign’s office in Des Moines and asked whether it was okay that she refuse to register people who don’t support Clinton, the campaign official said. The Clinton campaign maintains that its policy is to register all voters, regardless of their preference in candidates.

Project Veritas said they would neither confirm nor deny that these ill-fated attempts were coming from their organization; however, the evidence was not in their favor. One of the undercover activists was identified as Laura Loomer, a well known Project Veritas employee.

It was only a matter of time before the conservative group responsible for a long string of failed attempts at harming liberal causes under the leadership of conservative activist James O’Keefe went after Hillary Clinton. The group has a predictable obsession with latching onto any issue conservatives happen to be worrying about at the moment and exploiting it with PR-heavy “exposés” that inevitably collapse under scrutiny. Right now, Republicans are looking at the clown show that is their primaries, and Clinton’s strong poll numbers, and starting to freak out. Using shady tactics to undermine Clinton’s campaign has the benefit of not having to discuss the actual issues.

In O’Keefe’s drive for fame and fortune, he’s also been known to lead Project Veritas and his hapless employees to the very edge of the law and then give a big shove. In March of this year, one of his former employees came forward suggesting O’Keefe had asked him to go “undercover” with protesters in Ferguson and start screaming “kill cops.” The goal seems to have been to incite violence against police and then film it all for conservatives to lap up.

The man was immediately fired for refusing to partake in this despicable plan:

Valdes said he was fired by the group’s founder, James O’Keefe, for not following through on the bizarre assignment.

Valdes said Veritas assigned a Muslim undercover agent pretending to be anti-cop to attend protest meetings and utter the following statement: “Sometimes, I wish I could just kill some of these cops. Don’t you just wish we could have one of the cops right here in the middle of our group?”

O’Keefe himself may have broken a few laws when he decided to dress up as Osama Bin Laden and “cross” the U.S.-Mexico border to “prove” how easy it is for terrorists to get in. The only thing that saved him from facing charges is that his heavily-edited video of the act was so full of holes, and O’Keefe such a well-established liar, that it would be hard to convince a jury that he actually made the crossing. (He didn’t escape karma entirely. His stunt allegedly landed him on the no-fly list. Boy, you just can’t dress up like one of history’s greatest monsters to prove some idiotic point about immigrants like you used to. Thanks, Obama!)

Clinton’s team was smart to catch these people so quickly, but it wouldn’t be the first time. When O’Keefe tried to pretend he was a Democratic activist (illegally) trying to use a non-partisan voter registration group to influence the election (and thereby prove Democrats are rigging elections), the non-profit’s staff recognized him immediately and locked the doors to their office while he dejectedly stood outside.
