BUSTED: Conservative prankster James O’Keefe exposes his own ‘sting’ on George Soros group

Published

on

Conservative activist James O’Keefe tripped up his own attempt to infiltrate a group funded by progressive billionaire George Soros because he couldn’t hang up the phone, the New Yorker reported.

Audio of O’Keefe’s call to the Open Society Foundations captures him identifying himself as “Victor Kesh” and leaving a message, only to tell an unidentified person about his plan because he failed to realize that he didn’t disconnect the line.

O’Keefe states in his voicemail to Dana Geraghty that, he “would like to get involved with you and aid what you do in fighting for, um, European values,” explaining that “Kesh” is a Hungarian-American.

After asking Geraghty for someone to contact and leaving a number, “Kesh” ends the call. But then O’Keefe can be heard telling someone, “Don’t say anything before I hang up the phone.”

O’Keefe then engaged in a 10-minute discussion about his actual plan regarding the group

“What needs to happen someone other than me to make a hundred phone calls like that,” he said.

At one point, “Kesh” says that he is opening Geraghty’s LinkedIn page in order to use the information to help ease his way into the Soros “octopus,” only to realize that doing so only reveals his own LinkedIn account to her.

“It was a little chilling to hear this group of men talking about me as a ‘point of entry,'” Geraghty said. “But — not to sound ageist — it was clear that these people were not used to the technology.”

She subsequently forwarded the voicemail to the foundation’s president, Chris Stone, who ridiculed their attempt to scam her.

“The Watergate burglars look good compared to these guys,” Stone said. “These guys can’t even figure out how to use an Internet browser, let alone conduct an undercover operation. You read the transcript and you can’t help but laugh. But the issues here aren’t funny. There’s some kind of dirty-tricks operation in play against us.”

WATCH: Saturday Night Live airs Christmas special — that’s just one giant dig at the Electoral College

Published

NBC's "Saturday Night Live" aired an opening skit that was just one giant attack on the electoral college.

A snowman introduced the segment, saying that we could look in on the holiday table conversation thanks to hacked Nest cams.

The skit featured a house in San Francisco, California, a second in Charleston, South Carolina and a third in Atlanta, Georgia.

Each dinner table debated impeachment, and the differences between President Donald Trump and his predecessor, President Barack Obama.

But then the snowman said that none of their votes matter.

"They'll debate the issues all year long, but then it all comes down to 1,000 people in Wisconsin who won't even think about the election until the morning of," the snowman said. "And that's the magic of the Electoral College."
