Update on James O'Keefe/Project Veritas Drama

This account, OldRowSwig, says that O'Keefe has been ejected from PV due to the machinations of disgruntled board members and fired employees:

Swig @OldRowSwig

James is a bit of a victim of poor corporate structure, as PV is 2 separate orgs a 501c3 which had very FEW board members and the majority of the $$$ and a 501c4, which had significantly more board members but less $$$

According to my source, this situation has allowed to 2 alleged ringleaders of this attempt to push James out to have significant sway over the others despite their reasons to be essentially meritless.


The account @amuse posts this report:


SOURCE: "The board held a six and a half hour struggle session vs James where they subjected him to constant derision and insults. At the insistence of Tyrmand, O'Hara, and Hinckley;

"about ten employees aired their grievances about James, which essentially boiled down to him being a tough boss to work for. At the end of this six hour struggle session, Tyrmand and fellow board member John Garvey put him on leave and stripped him of all authority."


"It was literally a stalinesque kangaroo court trial. The thing that is so very profound to me that no one seems to grasp: John Garvey and the rest of the Board did NOTHING to stop it. Matt Tyrmand had it all scripted. All six fucking hours."

"about ten employees aired their grievances about James, which essentially boiled down to him being a tough boss to work for. At the end of this six hour struggle session, Tyrmand and fellow board member John Garvey put him on leave and stripped him of all authority."

"It was literally a stalinesque kangaroo court trial. The thing that is so very profound to me that no one seems to grasp: John Garvey and the rest of the Board did NOTHING to stop it. Matt Tyrmand had it all scripted. All six fucking hours."

This comes in the immediate aftermath of @Project_Veritas GREATEST moment ever, exposing corruption at Pfizer, which my source thought was EXTREMELY SUSPICIOUS timing.

You boot the founder right after your biggest win of all time???

PV must explain this situation!!!

My source believes that with enough public support, @JamesOKeefeIII could win back support of the 501c4 board, so PLEASE RT and voice your support in a POSITIVE WAY.

James O'Keefe has done more to expose corporate corruption than almost any journalist in modern history!!!

If @JamesOKeefeIII leaves, I will no longer support @Project_Veritas and will support whichever venture he starts instead. My source says that the rank and file employees are STILL WITH JAMES, the board needs to realize PV will likely not survive if the go through with this!

This account, @amuse, confirms most of the claims of @OldRowSwig:

5/PROJECT VERITAS MUTINY

Reportedly, @JamesOKeefeIII fired Barry Hinckley and Tom O'Hara (CFO) as a result of their insubordination.

6/PROJECT VERITAS MUTINY

New York Magazine is reporting that @Project_Veritas' board of directors has put @JamesOKeefeIII on paid leave and rehired the turncoats.


7/PROJECT VERITAS MUTINY

I have ZERO doubt that @JamesOKeefeIII is a crazy man who is hard to work for, but without James, there would be no PV. Firing him would be the end of @Project_Veritas. The answer is to build a team who can support James not undermine him. I'm game.

8/PROJECT VERITAS MUTINY

The decision to put @JamesOKeefeIII on paid leave seems to have been Daniel Strack, PV's Executive Director. Strack was unceremoniously pushed out of Goldman Sachs as an MD after just 3 years

We don't know the whole story yet; these accounts are obviously relaying the story of an O'Keefe supporter, if not O'Keefe himself.

James O'Keefe is Project Veritas, and firing him just destroys the organization. He'll go on to found a near-identical organization, which for all practical purposes will be the real Project Veritas. The old, fake Project Veritas will die.

More here.

Update: A friend tells me that Tyrmand wouldn't force out O'Keefe on a whim, as Project Veritas is very important to him, and he's been running it day-to-day for years.
