James O’Keefe to Wisconsin Attorney General: ‘We Should Investigate You’

Published

on

Project Veritas hinted that they may investigate Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel, after his office closed an investigation into potential voter fraud — and declined to view additional evidence the group had obtained.

Video footage that the controversial investigative journalism initiative had provided to Schimel was part of an expose on the group Democracy Partners, in which Scott Foval, a Democratic Party operative in Wisconsin, appears to discuss an elaborate voter fraud scheme.

“It’s a very easy thing for Republicans to say we are bussing people in. Well you know what, we have been bussing people in for 50 years to deal with you assholes and we’re not going to stop now. We’re just going to find a different way to do it,” Foval is heard saying in one of the videos.

Despite the alarming content of the footage, and Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe offering the office more videos, Schimel’s office decided to end the investigation without any charges being filed.

“Based on all the available facts I do not believe there is any basis to conclude that the videos demonstrate or suggest violations of Wisconsin criminal laws,” the Attorney General’s office had wrote in the memorandum.

Schimel’s office also appeared to attack the credibility of the Project Veritas organization.

“The interviews on the tape was obviously edited and the full recordings were not available on the Project Veritas website,” the memorandum by Roy Korte, the head of Schimel’s criminal litigation division, stated in January.

O’Keefe maintains that the office was provided with the full unedited videos.

On Thursday, O’Keefe responded to Schimel by stating that the investigation “was superficial at best, because your investigators apparently did not conduct any interviews and did not even make arrangements to view our third video.”

“You didn’t watch the tapes, and you don’t care to investigate,” O’Keefe said in a video response to Schimel. “This is about politics, this about attacking Project Veritas — because you think that our achilles heel is our tapes and whether they are credible or not.”

O’Keefe added that the organization had also provided Schimel with full transcripts, to make his job even easier.

 

“If the state of Wisconsin is not going to do their job, then, then, we should — you should be investigated,” O’Keefe said. “We should investigate you and you should lose your job.”

When asked by Big League Politics if they are actually planning to investigate Schimel and his office, the organization would not confirm or deny.

“Project Veritas action cannot disclose any information about any real or imagined company investigations,” an assistant communications director for the group told BLP.

Project Veritas recently released undercover videos of activists planning a butyric acid attack on the inaugural “DeploraBall” in Washington, DC, which lead to arrests of the parties involved.

Students Sue School District After Being Punished for ‘Racist’ Banter in Private Snapchat Group

A witch hunt was started against the students for alleged racism.

Published

on

A group of students has filed a free speech lawsuit in Saline, Mich. alleging that their civil rights were violated by school administrators who punished them for their banter in a private Snapchat group.

The lawsuit was filed on Tuesday, Feb. 11, in U.S. District Court in Detroit on behalf of four anonymous students, who were punished by the school district following a hysteria regarding racism after they sent joking messages in a chat room. The lawsuit alleges that two students were suspended as a result of their out-of-school speech while two others have been recommended for expulsion.

“The school is acting outside the scope of its authority, has no legal right to impose the discipline carried out, and has violated our clients’ constitutional rights by their reckless and hasty rush to judgment,” lawyer David A. Kallman, the attorney for the children, said in a statement.

The lawsuit claims that the school district has no jurisdiction to punish the children based on messages sent from their “homes, privately owned phones, on a non-school day.”

The students want the district to admit in a declaration that their actions were an infringement upon the students’ 1st Amendment rights. They also want the school district to formalize changes to their rules so other students’ rights are not similarly violated and for the students’ records and transcripts to be completely expunged moving forward.

Saline Superintendent Scot Graden called the private Snapchat postings that were brought to his attention “an act of racism that created harm to all of our students, especially students of color.” Kallman believes that he overreacted and took the messages out of their proper context.

“African-American and Caucasian children were using inappropriate and offensive language in a joking manner and in the context of immature banter among friends,” Kallman said in his news release about the case.

“The conversation did not occur at the school, at a school event, or on any school equipment. While all the children are embarrassed by their language, it does not justify the school’s rush to judgment and overreaction,” he added.

Kallman believes that this is a matter for parents to deal with and out of the jurisdiction of public school bureaucrats who want to push their left-wing values onto students.

“If a child gets stopped for drunk driving on a Saturday night, does the school have the right to expel that student? The answer is obvious. No,” Kallman wrote. “The conversation of these children had nothing to do with the school. It has no authority to discipline students for out of school misbehavior.”

Graden, the Saline Area Schools Board of Education, Assistant Superintendent Steve Laatsch, Saline High School Principal David Raft, Saline High School Assistant Principal and football coach Joe Palka, Assistant Principal Theresa Stager, Director of Student Services Molly Garcia, and Assistant Principal Kirk Evenson are named as defendants in the lawsuit.

A Saline high school football player released a threatening video in the midst of the controversy warning all those who support free speech that they are “outnumbered.” It has since become a rallying cry for the social justice warriors in the city to impose their anti-constitutional agenda.

“From all the people that believe in change to all the people who don’t: You’re outnumbered,” the student said in his video address.

The lawsuit hopes to push back against the diversity and tolerance mob and achieve a victory for the 1st Amendment against a leftist-dominated school system that is notoriously hostile to constitutional principles.
