WASHINGTON (AP) — James O’Keefe, the right-wing activist whose Project Veritas organization recently attempted to plant a false story in The Washington Post, was honored Wednesday night by a conservative religious organization. The award was presented by Virginia Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, in a ceremony at Washington’s Trump International hotel.
O’Keefe posted a photo on Twitter of Thomas handing him the Impact Award from the organization United in Purpose. Thomas is a longtime conservative and religious activist, closely associated with the Tea Party.
Project Veritas made headlines recently for the organization’s guerrilla tactics in defense of conservative causes. The Washington Post recently revealed an apparent sting operation designed to discredit the newspaper by planting a false story against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore.
