James O’Keefe, Robin to Andrew Breitbart’s Batman, has reached a financial settlement in a lawsuit filed over his infamous “expose`” on ACORN where he dressed as the least convincing and most ridiculous pimp in history. Juan Carlos Vera, one of the people illegally recorded in that video, was fired from his job even though he had, in fact, called the police on the fake “pimp.”
According to the settlement, O’Keefe — or his gullible right wing sugar daddies — has to pay Vera $100,000 and issue a not-pology.
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.”According to the final 5-page agreement, signed by O’Keefe and his legal counsel Mike Madigan this past Tuesday, the boy detective now publicly “regrets any pain suffered by Mr. Vera or his family.” O’Keefe and his counsel have also consented to fork over the $100,000 within 30 business days of the settlement agreement’s being signed.
The recording itself was illegal, never mind the dishonest editing of it. And I think he should have tacked on an extra $50,000 just for having to look at O’Keefe in this outfit:
