So it seems that Project Veritas has once again been caught in fraud. This time with regard to Roy Moore.

In an attempt to discredit the Washington Post and cast doubt upon the women who have accused Moore of sexual assault, attempted rape, and pedophilia, they sent Jaime T. Phillips to the Washington Post with a fake story and a fake name (Lindsay James) in an attempt to get the WP to publish it. In addition to her contradictory story, they did a routine background check and found that she had a GoFundMe account seeking money to help pay for her to go to New York in order "to combat the lies and deceipt of the liberal MSM."

And on Monday, Phillips was found entering the Project Veritas' offices in New York.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/...3a-bcbe2af58c3a_story.html

So this is a very specific question for Faith:

Do you still trust anything put out by Project Veritas?

At what point do you consider the possibility that your source is untrustworthy?

Thank you for your submission to Science. Your paper was reviewed by a jury of seventh graders so that they could look for balance and to allow them to make up their own minds. We are sorry to say that they found your paper "bogus," specifically describing the section on the laboratory work "boring." We regret that we will be unable to publish your work at this time.

Minds are like parachutes. Just because you've lost yours doesn't mean you can use mine.

It's Moore than that. It makes all the accusations against democrats in specific, and politicians in general suspect. That is entirely unfair to those women who have suffered sexual harassment and have come forward to tell their stories, because it raises the bar of skepticism higher than it was. I can totally see accusations being bought against congress critters as a dirty trick by the opposition.

This is particularly disconcerting, if you couple it with the fact that over the last 20 years, congress, from a secret slush fund, spent 17 MILLION dollars covering up sexual harassment claims. The number of claims paid out, how much money for the claims are listed at https://www.compliance.gov/...ettlements%20Appropriation.pdf

So what are the names, and who are repeat offenders?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Good question!

They don't seem to be answering that.
