James O’Keefe Asks for $50,000

Conservative guerrilla James O’Keefe—the man behind the video stings that recently brought down several NPR executives—is asking supporters to donate $50,000 to help him pay off debt incurred by his sting operations. “Up 'til now, my friends and I have financed all of our work on our own—running up major credit card debt,” O'Keefe wrote. O’Keefe said the NPR video cost around $50,000 to make, and blamed the “multi-billion dollar major media Goliath” for attacking him. On top of the $50k, O’Keefe asked for as much money as possible to help his organization uncover “disturbing cases of government abuse and corruption.”
