The Philanthropic foundation, Open Society Foundations, was recently targeted by activist James O’Keefe, but according to a RawStory.com article, infiltration of the grant-making George Soros institute didn’t go as planned.
Apparently, O’Keefe’s ill-conceived sting operation included calling Open Society Foundations, under the moniker “Victor Kesh,” with hopes of digging up dirt. However, to their amazement, after leaving a message for Dana Geraghty, an Open Society Foundations employee, O’Keefe “forgot” to hang up the phone, uncovering a 10-minute conversation that derailed his entire plan to penetrate the organization.
Pretending to be a Hungarian-American citizen, interested in furthering the fight for “European values,” O’Keefe’s mishap inadvertently revealed the true nature of his call: to malign the Soros organization. When O’Keefe unknowingly left the line open, he held a discussion with an unknown person, about making a hundred or so more misleading calls to Open Society Foundation. Surprisingly, the current uploaded transcript of the call reveals that James O’Keefe isn’t unsusceptible to using dummy LinkedIn accounts, or training British nationals to scam unsuspecting employees.
This isn’t the first time James O’Keefe has been caught with his pants down. In fact, the Republican activist slash undercover hack reporter and film maker is known for infiltrating companies, as well as partaking in some illegal stunts. Back in 2010, the FBI arrested O’Keefe, regarding a foiled plot to install listening devices in Senator Mary Landrieu’s office. A guilty plea from O’Keefe netted him three years probation, community service, and a fine, which many felt was a pretty light sentence for breaking into a U.S. Senator’s office to tamper with the phones. Now this latest debacle in the failed George Soros and Open Society Foundations infiltration has become a hilarious twist in the wind for O’Keefe.
