What goes around comes around. James O’Keefe is the well known Right Wing slime ball that attempts to find Liberals and Progressives in compromising positions. He is such a poor “investigative journalists” that he must resort to making things up.
One must remember the sham job O’Keefe did on NPR’s Ron Schiller that caused his resignation. One must remember the illegal wire tap he attempted on the offices of Senator Mary Landrieu he got arrested for. This is the modus operandi of the Right Wing.
Now O’Keefe will be about $100,000 less rich, though one can be sure that he will likely have a lot more cash from the moneyed interests that benefit from his fraud. It is finally time for him to pay up for the ACORN fraud he ran on the country.
James O’Keefe—the blonde bombshell who set the conservative world of hidden-camera YouTube movies ablaze—has just agreed to a $100,000 settlement to calm down the unjustly fired (and weirdly litigious about it) ACORN employee Juan Carlos Vera. According to a copy of the deal, obtained late last night by your wonkettes and viewable after the jump, O’Keefe has also agreed to ink an 11-word non-apology apology, that sources close to reality are calling “insincere” and “suuuuuuuch bullshit.”
According to the final 5-page agreement, signed by O’Keefe and his legal counsel Mike Madigan this past Tuesday, the boy detective now publicly “regrets any pain suffered by Mr. Vera or his family.” O’Keefe and his counsel have also consented to fork over the $100,000 within 30 business days of the settlement agreement’s being signed.
No one should expect O’Keefe to stop doing the only thing he seems to know how to do. There are deep pockets that are always looking for a fall guy for their dirty work. While he was a catalyst that caused the demise of ACORN, it is unlikely that given his credibility, he will ever be able to start a believable negative narrative that is actionable.
