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.

Disgusting: ’20 Pounds’ Of Feces Found Dumped onto San Francisco Street

Published

on

San Francisco residents were left surprised and disgusted on Saturday night by the appearance of approximately twenty pounds of human waste left dumped on a sidewalk in the city’s Tenderloin district, at the intersection of Polk and Cedar streets. Reddit user SerFuxAlot brought attention to the public hazard,  on the r/sanfrancisco subreddit, having identified it from a report made on the City’s ‘Citizen’ mobile app designed for reporting crimes and other public disturbances. The report made on the app described the hazard as being twenty pounds in weight, and subsequent pictures of the disturbance posted on the reddit thread revealed a plastic bag of waste dumped on the street.

Although the odor of the waste made it a revolting nuisance to San Francisco residents, the waste remained on the public street until later that evening, despite the San Francisco Department of Public Works having been notified of the problem around mid-afternoon earlier that day by the original report on the city’s municipal mobile app. Another reddit user, Tulsi2, described the waste as smelling “like a farm or fertilizer or something. At least it was physically well-contained, but if there was ever a need for 311, this was it.

The latest account of squalor and filth on San Francisco’s public streets isn’t the only report of serious public pollution problems in the city. A survey of downtown San Francisco’s public sanitation by the local NBC affiliate located more than 100 needles for drug use and more than 300 instances of feces(unknown to be of human or animal origin) within a relatively small area of 153 city blocks. Despite being one of the per-capita wealthiest communities in the country- and an iconic American city known as an international tourist and film destination- it seems as if San Francisco’s public sanitation has reached a point where it might more closely resemble that of a city in a third world country than that of a highly developed and wealthy nation.
