Trump Foundation funding of James O'Keefe was twice as much as previously reported, per new filings - 2017-11-28
Conservative activist (and convicted criminal) James O'Keefe and his tax-exempt Project Veritas group are under fire again, following a botched "sting" operation in which an employee falsely told the Washington Post that she was raped by Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore (R) as a teenager. The Post did not fall for her trick and instead exposed her for the blatant attempt to discredit the many women who have come forward with their stories of sexual assault.
Last October, ThinkProgress reported that Project Veritas had received a $10,000 donation in 2015 from Donald Trump's controversial Donald J. Trump Foundation, a theoretically charitable 501(c)(3) organization. This reporting was based on a list of charitable payments provided by the foundation to the Washington Post.
But a ThinkProgress review of the Trump Foundation's 2015 tax filing finds that it reported making not one but two $10,000 donations to Project Veritas in tax-year 2015.
