Twitter Blocks Project Veritas Journalist After Damaging Videos Published


James O’Keefe, whose Project Veritas seeks to document the seamy side of the American political process, on Wednesday found that his account was blocked by Twitter.

Also Thursday, the Project Veritas website,, was briefly offline. The reason for the interruption was not known Thursday morning.

Twitter’s action came after O’Keefe signaled that a video was soon to emerge about a candidate for the U.S. Senate.

“Tomorrow our hidden cameras go inside a top donor fundraiser to see what a certain Senate candidate really thinks,” he tweeted Wednesday night. Shortly after that, he was informed his Twitter account was to be blocked for 12 hours.

Twitter’s action against O’Keefe also came after Project Veritas, through use of a hidden camera, recorded members of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign staff condoning the destruction of voter registration forms filed by Republican voters. The video also caught staffers making inappropriate comments about “grabbing” other staffers.

O’Keefe also recently posted a hidden camera conversation from a New York City elections commissioner who admitted voter fraud was rife.

“After releasing two viral videos over the last two days, Project Veritas Founder and President James O’Keefe is no longer allowed to access his Twitter account. According to Twitter, he is blocked from accessing his account for twelve hours, at which point they reserve the right to make him pass additional hurdles to access his account,” read a statement from Project Veritas that was issued Thursday.

O’Keefe posted a video on Facebook after he was asked for proof that Twitter had blocked him.

Lack of a Twitter account did not stop O’Keefe, who found another way to get the word out on Twitter.

On Thursday, O’Keefe posted a video of former Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis., telling an attendee at an August fundraiser that Clinton might use executive orders to limit gun rights.

In the video released Wednesday, a journalist pretending to be a worker on the Clinton campaign claimed he had ripped up some GOP registration forms and asked Trevor LaFauci, a field organizer for the Florida Democratic Party, if LaFauci was “OK with that.”

“Yeah,” LaFauci said.

LaFauci assured the undercover journalist he would not be reporting the incident.

“As long as you don’t make it a habit,” LaFauci said on the video.
