UPDATE: Project Veritas Board Might Be Breaking the Law By Ousting James O'Keefe
We have yet another update to the James O'Keefe/Project Veritas saga. As a refresher, James O'Keefe was placed on paid leave by the board of Project Veritas for allegedly being a meanie poopy head. Also maybe because he just exposed a certain pharmaceutical company that essentially runs the country. Just a slight coincidence.
We then heard whispers of an actual coup organized by the Board of Directors to oust O'Keefe. Today, Old Row Swig, the same guy who exposed this coup d'état, obtained a Cease and Desist letter sent to Project Veritas' Board of Directors from a law firm representing a handful of "significant" Project Veritas donors.

The letter states that the Board may be violating Virginia law since Project Veritas has consistently solicited donations based on O'Keefe's "leadership, vision, and principles." Since the Board has clearly been planning to remove O'Keefe for some time but continued to solicit donations under O'Keefe's name and mission, this could potentially defraud donors.
The letter concludes, "We understand that the Board will be meeting tomorrow and that, at least at present, may be intending to take further steps toward reducing Mr. O'Keefe's leadership role and authority resulting in redirection of the mission of Project Veritas. We ask that the Board immediately cease and desist from taking such steps, as they risk violating Virginia charitable solicitation and trust law - as well as the governing documents of the Project Veritas entities."
We'll see what happens over the next few days, but this seems like a strong point in O'Keefe's favor. Even if he ends up getting removed, it's pretty obvious to everyone that there is no Project Veritas without James O'Keefe. If anything, he'll just start another nonprofit and keep going on Grindr dates with corrupt yet wholly unsuspecting Pfizer employees. America needs those hilarious stings now more than ever. It's been a tough year.
