Project Veritas Staffers Release New Statement As Whistleblowers Say They Stand With James O'Kee

• by Zachary Stieber

In a Feb. 24 video statementProject Veritas staffers said they "are at a crossroads" due to the dispute between O'Keefe and the organization's board of directors.

O'Keefe departed Project Veritas this week after being suspended and stripped of his authority. The board has said it uncovered signs of "financial malfeasance" but that it did not terminate O'Keefe. Staffers said Thursday that supporters should "give us a chance" as they work to continue O'Keefe's mission.

"We want James back," staffers said in the new video. "But we have a duty to our generous supporters, to all of you, and to our journalistic integrity to break record stories, which impact our culture, and most importantly, the future of our country."

Staffers said they're committed to continuing working to expose waste, fraud, and abuse, and that "no board or donor ever tells us what to report.

"We will never replace James O'Keefe.
