James O’Keefe is an award-winning journalist and writer. He is the founder and President of Project Veritas and Project Veritas Action, non-profit organizations dedicated to investigating corruption, dishonesty, waste and fraud in both public and private institutions.
James O’Keefe’s investigations have led directly to the passage of new legislation, federal and state investigations, congressional inquiries, the de-funding of taxpayer-funded groups, resignations, firings, re-trainings and disciplinary action.
