Project Veritas Founder James O’Keefe Resigns…or Was Forced Out

An internal coup?

James O’Keefe is the founder of Project Veritas. The Board recently removed him in a forced “leave of absence.” They cited that he is difficult to work with…which is often the case of strong leaders. His news media has been at the forefront of undercover methods and releases of information unavailable anywhere else. The following tweet was also marked as “not accurate” because another member stated that O’Keefe was actually removed by the Board. (The Post Millennial)

“This is not accurate. James was removed from his position as CEO by the Project Veritas board. They are in charge now.” RC Maxwell

Board member Matthew Tyrmand is widely thought to be the one who initiated the internal coup against O’Keefe. The fallout for Project Veritas may be extreme.  Numerous people stated that they would no longer listen to the organization.

Most Responses to the development on Monday were positive for James O’Keefe, and less than happy about the Project Veritas Board.

“I wish him the very best & hope that he continues to fight for truth. The PV Board has made critical mistake & will be nothing without him. I just unfollowed then and followed @JamesOKeefeIII.”  Linda H

“No O’Keefe. No Project Veritas. He’ll be fine. They won’t.” Ray T

“Without @JamesOKeefellI  @Project_Veritas  is nothing, and I, for one, have turned my back on them, just as they turned theirs on James. #ProjectVeritasIsDead” Red Nation Rising, Texas

“He has the American people backing him.” GL

“Guess I’ll go unsubscribe from all @Project_Veritas related communications. He’s going to have to start over after building the brand and following – better outcome than being muzzled – but tough break for James. @JamesOKeefeIII let us know what’s next. We’ll be waiting.” Mike M

The situation was likely a planned coup and had little to do with James O’Keefe’s personality. PV has been a thorn in the side of liberals since 2011. They are rejoicing today, but there will likely be a tomorrow that will once again light a fire under their feet.
