Project Veritas is James O’Keefe

Feb. 21, 2023, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to recent events at Project Veritas“The decision by the Project Veritas Board of Directors to end James O’Keefe’s time with the organization is a tragic loss for those who believe afflicting the powerful with the truth is not only noble but necessary.

“I know and admire James O’Keefe.  He took an idea and turned it into one of the most feared organizations in the 21st century. Feared, because they revealed truth about the inner workings and thoughts of those in government and corporations who view themselves above the people. A few years back, I got the opportunity to appear in one of Project Veritas’ expose’s focused upon the abuse of power by federal career workers as they illegally obtained and provided private information of business people and others who opposed the Democrat-Socialist agenda they espoused. James knew exactly what he wanted and how to accurately synthesize the on-camera admissions by those who were effectively stealing taxpayer dollars to pursue political purposes.

“James O’Keefe will come back, because he is mission focused and driven.  However, the world will be a worse place as time is lost as he has to use his unique vision, leadership and toughness to rebuild a platform to accomplish his next goal. People in power thrive through intimidating those who would dare to challenge them. James O’Keefe not only never backs down, but he relishes the fight to bring truth to light. I would like to thank James O’Keefe for having the integrity and courage to challenge the unchallengeable and bring them to their knees over the past thirteen years.  And I look forward to his re-emergence on the public scene. He is a man who won’t be denied and America is better off for the work he has done and I cannot wait to hear his vision for the next twenty.”
