Just over a week after an attempt by The Washington Post seemingly related to Project Veritas failed spectacularly, Project President Veritas James O & # 39; Keefe was honored as a "hero" by the conservative group United for Purpose .
O & # 39; Keefe accepted the "Impact" award from United for Purpose president Ginni Thomas, married to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
"Proud to receive the Impact award from Ginni Thomas on behalf of the @project_veritas team" O Keefe wrote on an Instagram legend documenting the ceremony, which took place at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC
According to United for Purpose, the winners of the award must demonstrate "great impact", show "tenacity, courage and perseverance even under hostile attacks," or be "an badet to the entire freedom movement," among other criteria.
Project Veritas is a conservative organization that affirms that its mission is to expose prejudices in the main media through concealment. It has an impressive record of failures, apparently including a recent attempt to discredit the Post's groundbreaking reporting of Senate Republican candidate Roy Moore and his alleged badual harbadment of teenagers when he was 30 years old.
Through standard background checks, it was discovered that a woman claiming to be another Moore accuser was probably affiliated with the O'Keefe group and was seen entering the Project Veritas offices. He addressed the Post's journalists as part of an organized attempt to trick the newspaper into publishing a false story, which would cast doubt on the accounts of other women who say Moore victimized them, the Post reported.
"The intention of the Veritas Project was clearly to publicize the conversation if we fell into the trap," said executive postal editor Martin Baron last week. "Due to our habitual journalistic rigor, they did not deceive us".
O & # 39; Keefe declined to comment when journalists asked him about his group's links to the failed attempt.
