[San Francisco, CA – June 25, 2020] Leslie Brown, the woman who appeared in a Project Veritas video making incendiary comments that debuted today, has been fired according to a text message received by PV CEO James O’Keefe.

Brown, the senior HR executive claimed she had been fired just hours after the video debuted. Brown also clarified her connection with the social media giant, resulting in her changing her employer on her LinkedIn page from Facebook to US Tech Solutions, a sub-contractor for Facebook. 

“Journalist: I mean, they were able to fire him without having to worry about discrimination.

Brown: Due diligence, right. Because he’s a white man. Yeah, white man. No problem. You can’t do it that easily if there are other issues.

Journalist: Oh, it’s easier when they’re-          

Brown: White men.  

Journalist: Yeah, no protected class.

Brown: No one has the white man’s back anymore.” 

 US Tech Solutions told Project Veritas only the client (Facebook) can make hiring/termination decisions.

“Any contractor hiring/termination is confidential information and we cannot comment to a third party on it. We will be happy to respond to Leslie directly if she has any questions about her temp assignment with US Tech,” said Manoj Agrawal, CEO of US Tech Solutions.

While this was occurring, a woman named Heather King appeared on a Facebook promoted call with Congressional staff about election meddling. 

King commented to the censorship of political posts by its content moderators as documented by Project Veritas insiders were not consistent with the company’s policies.

“With regards to a question related to Project Veritas report. First off is that our reviewers work hard to keep our tack on space for end users every day,” said the spokeswoman, who works with Facebook’s Washington-based political team. “We will be reviewing our training and oversight to make sure that we think about policy and we're watching our partners to make sure that they're appropriately and properly following our policies.”

The spokeswoman, who was responding to a question from a congressional staffer was speaking on the company’s conference call with several staffers on Election Integrity said Facebook reviews its reviewers.

“Reviewers’ decisions are regularly evaluated, ensure our policies are applied fairly and accurately, not promote any political viewpoint of any stripe and the comments included in this video are not consistent with our policies.”

    Question on Election Integrity Conference Call

[Washington, D.C. – June 25, 2020] Earlier today on a call with Capitol Hill staffers, Facebook Spokesperson Heather King commented to the censorship of political posts by its content moderators as documented by Project Veritas insiders were not consistent with the company’s policies.

“With regards to a question related to Project Veritas report. First off is that our reviewers work hard to keep our tack on space for end users every day,” said the spokeswoman, who works with Facebook’s Washington-based political team. “We will be reviewing our training and oversight to make sure that we think about policy and we're watching our
partners to make sure that they're appropriately and properly following our policies.

The spokeswoman, who was responding to a question from a congressional staffer was speaking on the company’s conference call with several staffers on Election Integrity said Facebook reviews its reviewers.

“Reviewers’ decisions are regularly evaluated, ensure our policies are applied fairly and accurately, not promote any political viewpoint of any stripe and the comments included in this video are not consistent with our policies.”

The Project Veritas releases, posted Tuesday and today, documented Facebook content moderators on hidden camera expressing hostility towards President Donald Trump and his supporters and their willingness to censor content supporting Trump and his agenda.

“Our insiders recorded Facebook moderators in Tampa and Phoenix saying they would take a bounty from Iran to kill the president and deleting every post with a MAGA hat and labelling it terrorism,” said O’Keefe.

“Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg told Congress under oath that Facebook does not censor political speech, but we proves that Facebook does censor political speech—and screenshots of Facebook policy directives, which categorize hate speech that should be taken down by their own policies as political speech, when it is aligned with Facebook’s political agenda,” he said.
