How embarrassing for people who ever set this little jerk up as any kind of young conservative model. Basically, he tried to set CNN correspondent Abbie Boudreau up with a boat cruise that involved strawberries, champagne and hidden cameras and microphones. Apparently there were also sexually suggestive props already set up on the boat. He meanwhile would hit on her. Has no one told him he would be playing out of his league? Is this guy like a rapist wanna be?
O’Keefe’s one and only claim to fame is a bogus, poorly doctored video of him playing a pimp with a fake prostitute asking hourly ACORN workers for help with various tasks of questionable legality. He left off the part where several called the police on him. He also left off the part where he and his friend really didn’t go into the offices dressed like a couple of fools. O’Keefe later got arrested in the offices of Senator Mary Landrieu for tampering with her phones. Somewhere in all this ACORN was exonerated.
Another young conservative with a conscience named Izzy Santos, ran out to the car to meet Abbie Boudreau and warn her of the plot. O’Keefe seemed to back down when Abbie Boudreau began trying to hold him to the original agreed upon plan for their meeting.
According to CNN:
“The plans appeared so outlandish and so juvenile in tone, I questioned whether it was part of a second attempted punk,” Boudreau said.
But in a phone conversation, Santa confirmed the document was authentic. Listed under “equipment needed,” is “hidden cams on the boat,” and a “tripod and overt recorder near the bed, an obvious sex tape machine.”
Among the props listed were a “condom jar, dildos, posters and paintings of naked women, fuzzy handcuffs” and a blindfold.
According to the document, O’Keefe was to record a video of the following script before Boudreau arrived: “My name is James. I work in video activism and journalism. I’ve been approached by CNN for an interview where I know what their angle is: they want to portray me and my friends as crazies, as non-journalists, as unprofessional and likely as homophobes, racists or bigots of some sort….
“Instead, I’ve decided to have a little fun. Instead of giving her a serious interview, I’m going to punk CNN. Abbie has been trying to seduce me to use me, in order to spin a lie about me. So, I’m going to seduce her, on camera, to use her for a video. This bubble-headed-bleach-blonde who comes on at five will get a taste of her own medicine, she’ll get seduced on camera and you’ll get to see the awkwardness and the aftermath.
The CNN show aired Oct. 2, and 3 and was called “Right On The Edge.” Someone needs to take O’Keefe out and throttle him, if for no other reason, so he will grow up and quit playing havoc with people’s lives. Maybe this little boy needs to do some jail time. He is getting fairly close. Even Breitbart, who advanced the ACORN/pimp story, has told him he owes an explanation and has critcized him harshly.
I just watched “Right on the Edge” Pt 2. I felt several of the young people interviewed had an anything goes for political gain point of view. In my world, the people filmed lacked ethics and morals. They set their own political goals ahead of anything else and the right soon became wrong. The ends did not justify the means. How does any man justify trying to seduce a woman, on camera, to advance his cause. O’Keefe is simply lower than whale dung.
