Teachers Unions Investigations 2017

NEW YORK STATE UNITED TEACHERS

    DESCRIPTION

    This video by James O'Keefe exposes attorney Mitchell Rubinstein from the New York State United Teachers describing a case in which he defended a teacher he names "Mike," who was alleged to have forced students at knife-point to give him oral sex. The teacher was eventually convinced to resign, but was not convicted and therefore could still be at large.

    RESULTS

    Rubinstein backs up, claims "was trying to impress a girl"

    O’Keefe confronted Rubinstein in a phone call after the video was released to get a comment. Rubinstein backed down, claiming what he said on hidden camera (twice) was not true. He later states he lied about the disturbing sexual assault allegation to “impress a girl.”

      SAN FRANCISCO UNITED EDUCATORS

        DESCRIPTION

        This video by James O'Keefe exposes a San Francisco teachers union official admitting that he hit a student. Antonio Mankini of San Francisco United Educators was caught on hidden-camera telling a journalist about his experience with hitting students.

        Two Project Veritas journalists went undercover–one posed as a friend of a teacher who hit a student, and the second posed as the teacher himself. When the teacher expressed guilt, Mankini told him not to worry because there was "no evidence."

        RESULTS

        Mankini placed on administrative leave

        After the release of the video, Antonio Mankini was placed on administrative leave.
