Video Scamster James O'Keefe In Financial Trouble

Reported by Ellen - March 23, 2011 -

While he's been busy scamming ACORN, NPR, CNN and Senator Mary Landrieu, Fox News' fave video "pimp" James O'Keefe has also been racking up a lot of credit card debt: $50,000 worth, apparently. (H/T Antoinette)

As TPMMuckraker reports,

Conservative provocateur James O'Keefe, fresh off his sting operation aimed at NPR, "must raise $50,000 quickly to keep moving forward" he said in an e-mail to supporters.

TPMMuckraker links to O'Keefe's rambling email in which he compares himself to 60 Minutes, complains that people criticized him for having edited his videos - when the reality is that he's been criticized for deceptively editing his videos - and concluding that the situation offers an opportunity to "vastly expand our efforts." But first, "I must raise $50,000 quickly to keep moving forward."

Maybe O'Keefe should focus less on scamming people and more on managing his finances.
