Major donor dumps James O’Keefe after learning of his failure to disclose his criminal record

Published

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has just lost a major donor in the wake of revelations that the right-wing dirty trickster failed to disclose his past criminal record.

The Daily Beast reports that the Chisholm Foundation, which has donated at least $136,000 to Project Veritas since 2011, will stop supporting the group because it “recently learned that Project Veritas was de-registered as a charity in Mississippi” over O’Keefe’s failure to disclose his criminal record.

“Irrespective of other possible concerns, the Chisholm Foundation will not be supporting Project Veritas in the future because it does not meet this basic standard,” the foundation explained in an email to the Daily Beast.

O’Keefe, who has been getting raked over the coals recently over his failed sting operation against the Washington Post, pleaded guilty in 2010 to a misdemeanor of entering government property under false pretenses during a similarly failed sting operation of then-Democratic Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu.

On the eve of the Nevada caucuses, former Vice President Joe Biden, who has referred to himself as "middle-class Joe," had a last-minute chance to connect with middle-class Nevada voters before Saturday's caucuses. At a barbecue with burgers, hot dogs, and ice cream sandwiches, attendees that included firefighters and iron workers gathered for what was advertised as a precinct captain training — or to simply hear Biden's pitch. Indeed, many attendees of the barbecue were still undecided a mere day before caucusing.

Trump’s NSC is ignoring intelligence reports and basing policy on handouts of Trump’s tweets: report

Published

on

According to a report from the New York Times, members of the National Security Council under Donald Trump no longer uses their extensive knowledge of international relations, politics, and history to formulate foreign policy security proposals for the president's review -- and are instead using the president's tweets to make policy based upon his desires and social media proclamations.

The report begins with noting that council members are often handed printouts of the president's tweets when they convene and are expected to use his words as their guide to formulate proposals that will likely find favor with the president.
