  •  I suspect he is doing this on behalf of Koch Bros (10+ / 0-)

    There was some mention on Twitter that JOK is funded by AFP. I don't think that's confirmed but it was a former insider who mentioned it so hopefully we will learn the truth.

    So Koch Bros pay for O'Keefe to produce fake voter fraud incidents with one hand, then use that to promote the ALEC voter ID laws. Easy peasy.

      Breitbart's 'work' was funded by the Koch's AFP which also flew him around to various Tea Party rallies to flail and whine about the meanie Democrats.  Breitbart was the passthrough for wingnut welfare to O'Keefe and many others, and I'm sure that continues.  Maybe Dana Loesch is passing along those checks now?

      •  Breitart paid JOK $50K last year (0+ / 0-)

        The article was up at Wonkette, from a depo re a former Acorn employee who is suing him.

        But the real money would be donations to Project Veritas. Charles Seife looked into that a bit. Coincidentally, he was targetted by JOK in one of his "pranks" shortly thereafter

        Would love to find out who kicked in that $10M. You think AFP?

        I think Joel Pollack is currently in charge of AB's operations, not Dana.
