Fake Rape Story By White Wing Gets Blown Up…Again

Back in the bad old days, it wasn’t uncommon for a white woman to shout rape against a black man (or men) to cover up some personal travesty.

Usually resulting in said black men getting lynched for a crime they didn’t commit.

Seems like old times…

And in response to a certain board troll…Notice how the name “Daily Caller” comes up in the story.

A woman approached The Post with dramatic — and false — tale about Roy Moore. She appears to be part of undercover sting operation.

A woman who falsely claimed to The Washington Post that Roy Moore, the Republican U.S. Senate candidate in Alabama, impregnated her as a teenager appears to work with an organization that uses deceptive tactics to secretly record conversations in an effort to embarrass its targets.

In a series of interviews over two weeks, the woman shared a dramatic story about an alleged sexual relationship with Moore in 1992 that led to an abortion when she was 15. During the interviews, she repeatedly pressed Post reporters to give their opinions on the effects that her claims could have on Moore’s candidacy if she went public.

The Post did not publish an article based on her unsubstantiated account. When Post reporters confronted her with inconsistencies in her story and an Internet posting that raised doubts about her motivations, she insisted that she was not working with any organization that targets journalists.

But on Monday morning, Post reporters saw her walking into the New York offices of Project Veritas, an organization that targets the mainstream news media and left-leaning groups. The organization sets up undercover “stings” that involve using false cover stories and covert video recordings meant to expose what the group says is media bias.

James O’Keefe, the Project Veritas founder who was convicted of a misdemeanor in 2010 for using a fake identity to enter a federal building during a previous sting, declined to answer questions about the woman outside the organization’s offices on Monday morning shortly after the woman walked inside.

“I am not doing an interview right now, so I’m not going to say a word,” O’Keefe said.

In a follow-up interview, O’Keefe declined to answer repeated questions about whether the woman was employed at Project Veritas. He also did not respond when asked if he was working with Moore, former White House adviser and Moore supporter Stephen K. Bannon, or Republican strategists.

The group’s efforts illustrate the lengths to which activists have gone to try to discredit media outlets for reporting on allegations from multiple women that Moore pursued them when they were teenagers and he was in his early 30s. Moore has denied that he did anything improper.

A spokesman for Moore’s campaign did not respond to a message seeking comment.

The woman who approached Post reporters, Jaime T. Phillips, did not respond to calls to her cellphone later Monday. Her car remained in the Project Veritas parking lot for more than an hour.

The Post positioned video reporters outside the group’s office in Mamaroneck, N.Y, after determining that Phillips lives in Stamford, Conn., and realizing that the two locations were just 16 miles apart. Two reporters followed her from her home as she drove to the office.

After Phillips was observed entering the Project Veritas office, The Post made the unusual decision to report her previous off-the-record comments.

“We always honor ‘off-the-record’ agreements when they’re entered into in good faith,” said Martin Baron, The Post’s executive editor. “But this so-called off-the-record conversation was the essence of a scheme to deceive and embarrass us. The intent by Project Veritas clearly was to publicize the conversation if we fell for the trap. Because of our customary journalistic rigor, we weren’t fooled, and we can’t honor an ‘off-the-record’ agreement that was solicited in maliciously bad faith.”

Phillips’s arrival at the Project Veritas office capped a weeks-long effort that began only hours after The Post published an article on Nov. 9 that included allegations that Moore once initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old named Leigh Corfman.

Post reporter Beth Reinhard, who co-wrote the article about Corfman, received a cryptic email early the next morning.

“Roy Moore in Alabama . . . I might know something but I need to keep myself safe. How do we do this?” the apparent tipster wrote under an account with the name “Lindsay James.”

The email’s subject line was “Roy Moore in AL.” The sender’s email address included “rolltide,” the rallying cry of the University of Alabama’s sports teams, which are nicknamed the Crimson Tide.

Reinhard sent an email asking if the person was willing to talk off the record.

“Not sure if I trust the phone,” came the reply. “Can we just stick to email?”

“I need to be confident that you can protect me before I will tell all,” the person wrote in a subsequent email. “I have stuff I’ve been hiding for a long time but maybe it should stay that way.”

The tipster’s email came amid counterattacks by Moore supporters aimed at The Post and its reporters.

That same day, Gateway Pundit, a conservative site, spread a false story from a Twitter account, @umpire43, that said, “A family friend in Alabama just told my wife that a WAPO reporter named Beth offer her 1000$ to accuse Roy Moore.” The Twitter account, which has a history of spreading misinformation, has since been deleted.

The Post, like many other news organizations, has a strict policy against paying people for information and did not do so in its coverage of Moore.

On Nov. 14, a pastor in Alabama said he received a voice mail from a man falsely claiming to be a Post reporter and seeking women “willing to make damaging remarks” about Moore for money. No one associated with The Post made any such call.

In the days that followed the purported tipster’s initial emails, Reinhard communicated with the woman through an encrypted text messaging service and spoke by phone with the person to set up a meeting. When the woman suggested a meeting in New York, Reinhard told her she would have to know more about her story and her background. The woman offered that her real name was Jaime Phillips.

Phillips said she lived in New York but would be in the Washington area during Thanksgiving week and suggested meeting Tuesday at a shopping mall in Tysons Corner, Va. “I’m planning to do some shopping there so I’ll find a good place to meet before you get there,” Phillips wrote in a message sent via Signal, the encrypted messaging service.

When Reinhard suggested bringing another reporter, Phillips wrote, “I’m not really comfortable with anyone else being there this time.”

Reinhard arrived to find Phillips, wearing a brown leather jacket and with long red hair, already seated in a booth in the restaurant.

The 41-year-old said she had been abused as a child, Reinhard said. Her family had moved often. She said she moved in with an aunt in the Talladega area of Alabama and started attending a church youth group when she met Moore in 1992, the year he became a county judge. She said she was 15. She said they started a “secret” sexual relationship.

“I knew it wasn’t right, but I didn’t care,” she said.

She said that she got pregnant, that Moore talked her into an abortion and that he drove her to Mississippi to get it.

In the interview, she told Reinhard that she was so upset she couldn’t finish her salad….More, including the Post hammering this woman’s boss, James O’Keefe

ACORN Pimp Sued

Looks like the ACORN Pimp may be paying out more than just the ass in his abbreviated prison stay…

This article is short on the legal ramifications, but while the ACORN Pimp, James O’Keefe and his accomplices have escaped further criminal prosecution – they are liable for defamation, and the loss of jobs by ACORN employees. The accomplices in this case not only include the “Ho'” who worked with O’Keefe, but possibly Brietbart (and others) who apparently financed their “operation” – as well as Faux News who promoted the tapes even when substantial evidence emerged that they were fake.

Now – if some aspiring young lawyers really want to have some fun – what I would suggest is taking a look at the local Public Utilities Commissions and FCC to check on what remediation is possible against Public Service broadcasters knowingly broadcasting false and defamatory material

Former ACORN employee sues O’Keefe and Giles

A former ACORN employee in San Diego who lost his job after being filmed giving advice to “ACORN pimp” James O’Keefe is suing the amateur videographer and his partner, Hannah Giles, San Diego CityBeat’s Dave Maas reported Friday.

Juan Carlos Vera was one of a number of ACORN employees who in the summer of 2009 was secretly filmed giving advice to O’Keefe and Giles, who were posing as a pimp and prostitute with plans to bring underage prostitutes to the US from Latin America.

In a lawsuit (PDF) filed in a California court this week, Vera argues O’Keefe and Giles broke the law when they taped their conversation inside the ACORN office. California is one of about a dozen states where conversations can only be recorded if all parties to it agree. Vera is seeking $75,000, plus unspecified “special damages.”

San Diego CityBeat reports that California Attorney General Jerry Brown cleared Vera of wrongdoing in a report earlier this year. Brown found that, though Vera appeared sympathetic to the “pimp and prostitute” during the taped meeting, he immediately notified the police of the conversation. Brown’s investigation also found that the O’Keefe videos were “significantly edited.”

The shocking prospect of ACORN employees aiding in human trafficking prompted Congress to de-fund the group last year, a move that was later ruled unconstitutional. And a report from the Government Accountability Office, released earlier this year, found no evidence of wrongdoingon the part of ACORN, which received some $40 million in federal funding from 2005 to 2009.

Tea Bagger Feud Over Use of N-Word

During the run-up to the Health Care vote, Congressman John Lewis and several other black lawmakers were verbally assaulted by Tea Bagger protesters as they walked from one of the Office Buildings to the Capital Building. 4 Congressmen, including a white Congressman reported hearing chants of the N-word hurled at the lawmakers by Tea Baggers.

Andrew Breitbart

Within a day or so of the incident being reported in the MSM, a video posted by Andrew Breitbart. Brietbart was central in “breaking” the James O’Keefe white-boy pimp ACORN sting, and providing the videos to Faux News. Brietbart, and others within the Tea Party movement are claiming that the incident reported by the Congressmen never happened, based on a video purportedly shot during the time the Congressmen claim they were assaulted. They are claiming that the Congressmen are lying in order to portray the Tea Baggers in a racist light.

Now it turns out that the video presented by Brietbart and other Tea Baggers of evidence that the assault never happened, was shot at a totally different time than the period in which the Congressmen claim they were assaulted.

Now – this could have been a mistake, but when you consider the same sources are the origin of the now thoroughly discredited ACORN tapes which resulted in the destruction of ACORN…

Then the DOJ needs to start looking at this as a criminal enterprise, and needs to look at possibly charging Mr. Breitbart and his accomplices with several crimes, including potentially violations under the Civil Rights Act, Wire Fraud, and Mail Fraud.

Wrong Video of Health Protest Spurs N-Word Feud

Three Democratic congressmen — all black — say they heard racial slurs as they walked through thousands of angry protesters outside the U.S. Capitol. A white lawmaker says he heard the epithets too. Conservative activists say the lawmakers are lying.

What does the video show? Not much. Indeed, new interviews show that a much-viewed YouTube recording cited as evidence by conservatives was actually shot well after the time in question.

It was March 20, near the end of the bitter health care debate, when Reps. John Lewis, Andre Carson and Emanuel Cleaver say that some demonstrators, many of them tea party activists, yelled the “N-word” as the congressmen walked from House office buildings to the Capitol.

Orange Jumpsuit Update – ACORN Pimp Cops a Plea Bargain

Looks like the anticipated “special justice” for white boys is playing out.

BTx3 things these scumbags each ought to be spending a couple of years in the general population of a Federal Penitentiary getting “acculturated” to the real world. What this means is you get less time for the “organized crime” of breaking into a federal office and tapping the phones…

Than for a gram of crack.

O’Keefe, others plan to plead guilty

The Abercrombie and Fitch Model Orange Jumpsuit for Mr O'Keefe

The four men arrested in January for their stunt to embarrass staffers in the New Orleans office of Sen. Mary Landrieu (D) are prepared to plead guilty, legal sources say, in return for reduced charges. Federal prosecutors today filed misdemeanor charges against the four. James O’Keefe, who became a media sensation last year for his videos involving ACORN employees, and three others were charged with entering federal property under false pretenses. Two of them went to her office pretending to be telephone repairmen. The charges said all four were in on the plan.

Because the charge is a misdemeanor — and not a felony — the maximum sentence is six months in prison and a $5,000 fine.

The government dropped its earlier, more serious, charges of tampering with government phone lines.

Federal authorities initially accused the four of trying to tamper with Landrieu’s phones, but the new filing merely says they planned to pretend to test the phone system.

The FBI said O’Keefe, 25, of New Jersey, used his cell phone to try to capture video of two other men who posed as telephone repairmen and asked to see the phones at Landrieu’s office. The fourth allegedly waited outside in a car with a listening device.

The two suspects who posed as repairmen — Basel and Flanagan, both 24 — wore white hard hats, tool belts and fluorescent vests. One of them had a camera hidden in his helmet.

Flanagan, of New Orleans, is the son of the acting U.S. Attorney based in Shreveport. Basel, of Minnesota, and Stan Dai, 24, of the Washington, D.C. area, also were arrested.

The four suspects originally were charged with entering federal property under false pretenses for the purpose of committing a felony, which carries a penalty of up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

The Acorn Pimp Crossdresses… In a “Hoodie”!

Scratch the surface on 9 out of 10 conservative activists, and you uncover a bigot.

James O’Keefe’s race problem

Many of the conservatives who gleefully promoted James O’Keefe’s past political stunts are feigning shock at his arrest on charges that he and three associates planned to tamper with Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu’s phone lines. Once upon a time, right-wing pundits hailed the 25-year-old O’Keefe as a creative genius and model of journalistic ethics. Andrew Breitbart, who has paid O’Keefe, called him one of the all-time “great journalists” and said he deserved a Pulitzer for his undercover ACORN video. Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly declared he should have earned a “congressional medal.”

The ACORN Pimps Evening Attire

His right-wing admirers don’t seem to mind that O’Keefe’s short but storied career has been defined by a series of political stunts shot through with racial resentment. Now an activist organization that monitors hate groups has produced a photo of O’Keefe at a 2006 conference on “Race and Conservatism” that featured leading white nationalists. The photo, first published Jan. 30  on the Web site of the anti-racism group One People’s Project, shows O’Keefe at the gathering, which was so controversial even the ultra-right Leadership Institute, which employed O’Keefe at the time, withdrew its backing. But O’Keefe and fellow young conservative provocateur Marcus Epstein soldiered on to give anti-Semites, professional racists and proponents of Aryanism an opportunity to share their grievances and plans to make inroads in the GOP.

ACORN Fake Pimp Becomes Radioactive to Republicans

Tapping, or tampering with a Congressman or Senator’s phones is a Federal Crime. A Felony punishable by 10 Years in prison and a $250,000 fine. There  is ample precedent for this going back to the days before cellular phone service was encrypted and digitized, where a couple managed to overhear and record a conversation by then House Speaker “Neut” Gingrich. The couple were fined $5,000.00 each – not because they were able to overhear the conversation (which was legal) – but because they recorded it.

Entering, or attempting to gain entry to a Federal Building with a false identification is also a Felony.  Making the actions of O’Keefe and his accomplices even more serious. Of course, one of the co-conspirators, Robert Flanagan’s,  father is the acting US District Attorney (Bill Flanagan) for Western Louisiana – so these white boy criminals will likely get “special justice” – walking away with a hand slap instead of prison time.

But it could be “Hard Out There for a Pimp”, having to spend time in a real prison, with real pimps…

Today, Republicans are running away from O’Keefe.

  • O’Keefe was supposed to be the keynote speaker at a Salt Lake County GOP fundraiser on Feb. 4. But county GOP Chairman Thomas Wright told the Salt Lake Tribune: “We’ll be announcing a new speaker shortly.”
  • Rep. Pete Olson, R-Tex., is on the defense for introducing a resolution honoring O’Keefe for exposing ACORN. He told the Hill that he doesn’t condone unlawful behavior, as On Deadline reported this morning. There were 31 cosponsors on that resolution, so you can expect Democratic challengers to use that resolution against their GOP opponents in this fall’s midterm elections.  Rep. John Kline, R-Minn., is identified here as a cosponsor of that resolution.
