Project Veritas, an undercover outlet, has recently been in the news as its founder and prominent figure, James O’Keefe, has been put on paid leave while the board of directors considers dismissing him. The move followed anonymous claims regarding O’Keefe’s management practices, such as harassing employees and confiscating a sandwich that belonged to an expecting woman.
The complaints range from allegedly calling Spencer Meads–a longtime employee who is under scrutiny in the Biden diary case–a "pussy," to allegedly going on a hangry public rant and then taking and eating an 8-months pregnant woman's sandwich— Andrew Rice (@riceid) February 8, 2023
Project Veritas has issued a response regarding the situation, which, though not mentioning James O’Keefe by name, says that the board of directors and leadership are continuously assessing the most appropriate direction for the organization. The statement also emphasized that Project Veritas will never halt its efforts and will always fulfill its obligations to its supporters.

Despite what the Corporate Media tries to portray about our organization, know this: We have never been more motivated and dedicated to our mission than now. pic.twitter.com/sB7Cz97b5M
Big Mistake. The people know who IS Project Veritas. Kind of like when the Apple Board removed Steve Jobs. Hope you thought this through.— Lori Mills (@LoriMills4CA42) February 9, 2023
The reactions to Project Veritas’ statement were mainly against the potential removal of James O’Keefe. The founder of Old Row posted a thread citing an inside source who stated that the situation with O’Keefe is a hostile takeover attempt by two members of the board, Matt Tyrmand and Barry Hinckley, based on flimsy allegations of wrongdoing.
The board of directors and management are currently undergoing a review of the situation and determining the most suitable course of action for the organization. The duration of this evaluation and its result are uncertain. Nevertheless, it is evident that Project Veritas remains dedicated to its goals and will not disappoint its supporters.
The future of Project Veritas is uncertain at this time, but one thing is certain: James O’Keefe has been an integral part of the company since its inception and his presence will be missed if he is removed from his position. It remains to be seen how this situation will play out, but it is clear that Project Veritas has a strong support system behind them and will continue to fight for its mission no matter what happens.
