O’Keefe, the head of Project Veritas, dressed as an investment banker and went to the protests to find out its true motivations. He found a girl eating cake, a man who wanted him to invest in the Constitutional World Federation, and some weed.

O’Keefe got national attention in 2009 after dressing as a pimp and secretly recording videos of ACORN employees offering him advice on issues like tax evasion and human trafficking. It seems he wanted to repeat the same trick again—this time at Occupy Wall Street.
