New Project Veritas Dossier Compiles Photos of James O'Keefe's Known Associates - 2018-01-03
The Washington Post got lucky. After reporters there smelled something fishy about a tip from a source about former Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, they began looking skeptically into the woman's background.
The woman claimed she was from Alabama and had been impregnated by Moore, who coerced her into having an abortion. None of that was true, but she did give her real name: Jaime Phillips. Some online sleuthing eventually connected the dots: She was a plant sent by James O'Keefe's Project Veritas to attempt to embarrass the Post.
Previous O'Keefe infiltrators at different organizations had used fake names, and an O'Keefe operative is unlikely to make the mistake of being honest next time, which would make unraveling the scheme more difficult for the next targeted group.
