James O'Keefe Pays $100,000 To ACORN Employee He Smeared-Conservative Media Yawns - 2013-03-08
That would be the same James O'Keefe who brought down community organizing and voter registration organization ACORN in his march to becoming a conservative icon for his alleged 'good works'.
Matthew Phelan and Liz Farkas over at Wonkette have broken the story about the first bit of blowback resulting from O'Keefe's brand of 'journalism'.
It seems that the master of the cleverly edited—if highly deceptive—video reel is now being required to pay the sum of $100,000 to Juan Carlos Vera, a one time California employee of ACORN. Mr. Vera had been portrayed by O'Keefe as being a willing participant when O'Keefe and his accomplice, Hanna Giles, proposed smuggling young women into the United States to work as prostitutes.
