James O’Keefe, president of Project Veritas, speaking to a group of students at a Leadership Institute Student Activism Conference at the College of Charleston on March 6, 2015.
Founded by James O’Keefe, the mission of Project Veritas is:
Investigate and expose corruption, dishonesty, self-dealing, waste, fraud, and other misconduct in both public and private institutions in order to achieve a more ethical and transparent society.
Project Veritas is the most effective non-profit on the national scene, period.
We’ve had dozens of successes, many of which are detailed on this site. The pattern is clear:
Project Veritas launches an investigation with the placement of our undercover journalists. The rollout of our findings creates a growing and uncontainable firestorm of press coverage. Corruption is exposed, leaders resign, and organizations are shut down.
We get immediate, measurable and impactful results, and our return on investment is unparalleled.
Project Veritas is a registered 501(c)3 organization. Project Veritas does not advocate specific resolutions to the issues that are raised through its investigations, nor do we encourage others to do so. Our goal is to inform the public of wrongdoing and allow the public to make judgments on the issues.
Founder and President of Project Veritas
James O’Keefe’s groundbreaking investigations have exposed corruption and malfeasance in major taxpayer-funded institutions, including ACORN, Planned Parenthood, public education, labor unions, NPR, Medicaid, Organizing for America, state election divisions, the “Obamaphone” program, Hollywood and more.
In 2013, O’Keefe authored The New York Times bestselling book Breakthrough: Our Guerilla War to Expose Fraud and Save Democracy, which tells the true story of subverting a corrupt and complacent media establishment, surviving gratuitous legal challenges, and restoring truth to journalism by successfully pioneering a new form of guerilla reporting.
O’Keefe is a graduate of Rutgers University. A congressional resolution was introduced in 2009 with 31 cosponsors praising him for his work. He is the recipient of the Robert Novak Award for Journalistic Excellence (2011), has been named “Fox News Power Player of the Week” twice by Chris Wallace, and was placed on the Forbes 30 under 30 for media moguls.
