James O’Keefe of the misleadingly named Project Veritas agrees to pay $100K settlement …

… to a man whose last name is Latin for “truth.”

G.K. Chesterton, whom O’Keefe claims to admire, couldn’t have written an apter twist to the story of the young Alinskyite activist who boasted he was “lying to bring down a greater lie.”

ACORN may well have deserved to be defunded. But Juan Vera did not deserve to lose his job because of James O’Keefe’s twisted belief that “the end justifies the means.”

I hope O’Keefe learns what William Doino, Jr., and I tried to tell him three years ago: “Tricks Are for Kids.”

    Just a heads up before this article’s viewership picks up steam: “Veritas” is the Latin noun “truth”, but “vera” is the adjective “verus, -a, -um”, meaning “true”.

      Zach, thanks, but I’m going by Whitaker, which also has it as a noun. I believe as a noun it is a truth, as opposed to veritas, which is truth in general.

    I didn’t know you met with him or talked to him to discuss that.

      Dave, I was referring to the article I wrote, but O’Keefe did read the piece and respond privately.
