EXCLUSIVELY YOURS, James O’Keefe’s 13 Most Delusional Passages From His Uncorrected Memoir Galleys

Today occasions the publication of James O’Keefe’s first foray into longform prose, with his semi-autobiographical fantasy novel Breakthrough: I Did Not Title This After Chapter 6 In Andrew Breitbart’s Memoir! Shut Up! Jesus! Shut the Hell Up! Even though Mary McCue — James’ publicist at Threshold Editions (an embarrassing division of Simon & Shuster) — mysteriously never sent us the advanced copy she promised, we still managed to secure one for ourselves after a quick undercover sting. Having now read the damn thing, we are here to spare you the $16-to-$26 you might have spent ironically purchasing this book. (But yes, that is a purchase link. Can’t say we didn’t warn you.) After the jump, prepare to enact O’Keefe’s “Veritas Rule” #24: Walk a mile in your enemy’s head. (Siqq, bro! These rules are INTENSE! We’re In Yo Heeeeeaaaaaaaaaaad!!!!!)

Wonket Sexclusive: Totally Blameless Crime-Stopper James O’Keefe To Pay $100,000 To ACORN Criminal

James O’Keefe—the blonde bombshell who set the conservative world of hidden-camera YouTube movies ablaze—has just agreed to a $100,000 settlement to calm down the unjustly fired (and weirdly litigious about it) ACORN employee Juan Carlos Vera. According to a copy of the deal, obtained late last night by your wonkettes and viewable after the jump, O’Keefe has also agreed to ink an 11-word non-apology apology, that sources close to reality are calling “insincere” and “suuuuuuuch bullshit.” Read more on Wonket Sexclusive: Totally Blameless Crime-Stopper James O’Keefe To Pay $100,000 To ACORN Criminal…

HALF-ISH EXCLUSIVE: It Took A Nation of Millions To Hold Back James O’Keefe’s Racist Boston Video

This is going to be difficult to hear — given how much all of you have come to lionize the Right’s greatest Candid Camera host, James Edward O’Keefe III. However, Buzzfeed has published a chain of emails detailing how a coterie of job-creating freedom fighters once micromanaged an authentic O’Keefe “pimpin’ video stang” targeting ACORN and SIEU during the 2010 Brown-Coakley senate race. Though the project was ultimately never finished, the planning emails present — in granular detail — a case study of just how James O’Keefe gets wielded as a partisan tool. You may recall that we mentioned these emails to you last June, in a piece widely criticized for a lack of buttsecks and a preponderance of words. You will, of course, also be shocked to learn that there’s more to this story than has been reported by Buzzfeed, a digital McDonald’s® wrapper of GIFs and listicles, that (under ex-Politico writer Ben Smith’s guidance) is a real news organization now. After the jump: A former Drama Club geek mass emails the entire Republican Party to organize his top secret, hidden-camera investigation. This is the News.

James O’Keefe’s Traitorous Former Collaborators Betray Each Other, Like A Bunch Of Traitors

It’s an all-out Mutant War! Nadia Naffe — the conservative activist who accused America’s last serious journalist, James O’Keefe, of unlawful imprisonment and intimated he drugged and tried to rape her in his parents’ barn — has joined forces with convicted bomber and librul Brett Kimberlin to publish a massive stockpile of O’Keefe’s emails. While JOK hasn’t been remotely fazed by the first salvo in their merged vendetta, already there has been major collateral damage. The first wave of published emails partially exposed the identity of James O’Keefe’s turncoat NPR sting collaborator, who had been operating under the pseudonym Simon Templar, but whom everyone will now know by his real name, Kenneth C. Larrey. Laaaaaahhhh-rrey. Your trustworthy Wonkettes can guarantee this is true, because we figured it out and brought it up with Ken Larrey months ago, over the phone. Don’t hate us for keeping it secret! Selfish jerk Ken Vogel at Politico has been hiding this scoop from you for even longer! So has hack pundit emeritus Howard Kurtz! Hate those guys!

WONKETTE EXCLUSIVE! James O’Keefe Depos: Breitbart Paid Pimp, Ho Mad Cheddar For ACORN Videos

WONKET EXCLUSIVE! MUST CREDIT WONKETTE!!1! Very independent citizen-journalist James O’Keefe and his equally self-funded co-star in the ACORN stings, Hannah Giles, got real paid shortly after finishing their videos in the early fall of 2009, according to depositions taken three weeks ago. The pair admitted under oath to signing contracts with (the now recently deceased) Andrew Breitbart and his business partner, attorney Larry Solov, for the sum total of $120,000. Pretty shocking, right? You could buy a fairly high-end sex boat with that kind of cash. Or, one could, anyway. The depositions were taken this past March at the Washington, D.C. offices of Planet Depos — a third-party supplier of certified court reporters and legal videographers that is really, actually named that, which is totally great. The depositions were taken as part of an ongoing lawsuit filed by Juan Carlos Vera, a former ACORN employee secretly recorded by O’Keefe and Giles during their sting at the community organizing group’s San Diego offices. (Recording confidential conversations without the consent of all parties is a violation of section 632 of the California penal code.) Read more on WONKETTE EXCLUSIVE!
