Award-winning journalist and writer, James O’Keefe is at the helm of the two non-profits (Project Veritas and Project Veritas Action Fund) which are dedicated to investigating corruption, dishonesty, waste and fraud in both public and private institutions. Earlier on James received the Young Professional Conservative Leadership “Buckley Award” awarded to “young professionals in recognition of significant achievements in advancing the conservative cause.”
He also received the Robert Novak Award for Journalistic Excellence (2011), has been named “Fox News Power Player of the Week” twice, and was on the Forbes “30 Under 30” for media moguls.
Under his leadership, Project Veritas investigations have led directly to the passage of new legislation, federal and state investigations, congressional inquiries, the de-funding of taxpayer-funded groups.
Political reporter Dave Weigel wrote in Slate that O’Keefe “had more of an impact on the 2012 election than any journalist.”
The Nation magazine wrote, “O’Keefe’s influence on voting rights opponents and legislators alike is particularly jarring.”
