The group accused of trying to infiltrate The Washington Post is asking for donations in Utah - even though it's not allowed to - 2017-11-30
Project Veritas — now in the headlines for a bungled sting of The Washington Post — has been soliciting donations in Utah even though the state stripped it of a permit needed to allow such fundraising.
For example, Dan Harrie — The Salt Lake Tribune's editor of government and politics — received solicitations by email from the group for at least 19 months, including a flurry since its run-in with The Post. Harrie said he has no idea how he landed on its email list.
Harrie also did not know that such solicitations may violate Utah law until The Post reported that Utah and Mississippi had stripped the group of licenses needed to raise money because of a criminal conviction by its chief, James O'Keefe.
