James O’Keefe, founder and president of the journalism group Project Veritas Action Fund (PVAF), has made history through his organization’s hidden camera investigations into hard left groups like ACORN, tolerance of radical Islam in academia, lax border security and liberal bias at taxpayer funded National Public Radio – and now he has struck again.
This time he appears to have caught several Hillary Clinton campaign workers and volunteers in Nevada “not only skirting the (voter registration election) law but mocking it.”
According to the PVAF website, O’Keefe’s undercover journalists allegedly caught Christina Gupana, a Las Vegas attorney and Hillary for America Fellow, counseling fellow campaign workers in Nevada that they should “do whatever you can, whatever you can get away with just do it.”
According to O’Keefe:
“We uncovered a clear theme within the Nevada Clinton campaign, when it comes to the law: ask for forgiveness not permission. Phillip Kim, a staff organizer for Hillary for America was captured on hidden camera saying: “ask for forgiveness not for permission.”
In the undercover video, you can hear Courtney Kravitz, a Hillary for America Fellow, telling one of Project Veritas Action’s undercover journalists that “I mean we kind of abide by the like ask for forgiveness type of thing.”
You can also hear And Harrison Lee, another Hillary for America Fellow, admitting on hidden camera: “Typically the style of campaigning that we do is like, we just ask, do they support Hillary Clinton. And if we’re not allowed to do that, then we ask for forgiveness.”
In a back and forth captured on video after a Nevada librarian told campaign worker Henry Engelstein that Clinton and other campaign signs were not allowed while registering voters, Engelstein was heard telling Gupana and Lee:
“…she came out with the Nevada statute books and opens it up and starts reading the statute about how you’re allowed to get voter registration… it says pretty explicitly here in the statute that this sort of action is prohibited. So I don’t care if you do voter registration but you can’t have the Hillary stuff.”
“That was like the saddest day,” stated Lee, to which Engelstein cavalierly replied “Dude she had the f**king book.”
The video is said to show an undercover Project Veritas journalist recording the campaign staffers discussing how during voter registration drives they openly endorsed Clinton and the Democratic Party – which, if true, is a violation of election law that prohibits registration workers from advocating for a candidate or a party.
The phrase “ask for forgiveness, not for permission” seemed to be the mantra of Clinton campaign workers and volunteers in Nevada – a mantra repeated enough to prompt O’Keefe to remark:
“The widespread corruption throughout all levels of the Clinton campaign is a disease.” “Just as with her State Department email scandal, the culture of Clinton’s presidential campaign seems clear: break the law – then ask for forgiveness only if you get caught.”
