New Campaign For Accountability sticky icon

IndictBreitbart.org is a new campaign to seek accountability for the violations of criminal law committed by Andrew Breitbart, James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles. O’Keefe and Giles illegally and surreptitiously recorded employees of the Baltimore ACORN office in the summer of 2009 and then their employer Breitbart illegally published their edited versions online in order to harm ACORN.  This is a grassroots campaign to let law enforcement officials in Maryland know that ordinary citizens want accountability. 

Since that illegal conduct occurred, numerous official reports have come out showing that O'Keefe, Giles and Breitbart acted illegally/unethically with regard to their ACORN recordings. Those reports are listed here. Also, James O'Keefe has been arrested and convicted for tampering with the phones in Senator Mary Landrieu's office, and he is under investigation for attempting to lure a CNN reporter on to a boat in Maryland for nefarious purposes. Andrew Breitbart was responsible for posting an edited recording of Department of Agriculture employee Shirley Sherrod which resulted in her improper firing. A subsequent investigation determined that she did nothing wrong and should be reinstated.

You can help hold these people accountable for violating Maryland law by signing this letter to Gregg Bernstein, the new Baltimore State's Attorney.

Crooks & Liars: Groundswell Group Stoked Scandals with Help From GOP Leaders

-By Karoli

July 30, 2013- When David Corn broke the Groundswell story last week, the general reaction among the politerati was a shrug and a giggle. Even influential NYU journalism professor Jay Rosen called it "no big deal."

Mother Jones: Groundswell's Secret Crusade to Crush Karl Rove

Ginni Thomas and her conservative allies have launched a stealth attack on the GOP's top strategist.

-By David Corn

July 25, 2013- Groundswell, the recently created coalition of prominent right-wing activists and journalists, gathers weekly to coordinate messaging and plot strategy for "a 30 front war seeking to fundamentally transform the nation." These sessions usually fixate on how best to battle the president, congressional Democrats, and progressive groups. But their 30-front war also includes something of a civil war: a fierce crusade against the Republican establishment and Karl Rove, the GOP strategist and Fox News pundit.

Mother Jones: Inside Groundswell: Read the Memos of the New Right-Wing Strategy Group Planning a "30 Front War"

-By David Corn

July 25, 2013- Believing they are losing the messaging war with progressives, a group of prominent conservatives in Washington—including the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and journalists from Breitbart News and the Washington Examiner—has been meeting privately since early this year to concoct talking points, coordinate messaging, and hatch plans for "a 30 front war seeking to fundamentally transform the nation," according to documents obtained by Mother Jones.

James O'Keefe death rumors are a hoax.

If you've heard any rumors about conservative weasel James O'Keefe dying in an attempt to sexually molest a horse, the source is the Teabilly parody site below:

As far as anyone knows, O'Keefe is still alive and well, and will probably crawl out from under his rock again soon...

Or, it's hard out here for a guy who never posed as a pimp...

-By Brad Freidman

March 13, 2013- I'm prepping for my KPFK/Pacifica Radio show today, when I'll be joined by Eugene Iredale, the attorney for former San Diego ACORN worker Juan Carlos Vera who won a $100,000 settlement from federal criminal and professional liar James O'Keefe last week in an invasion of privacy lawsuit (and a $50,000 settlement from O'Keefe's former partner Hannah Giles last summer). You can listen live at 6pm ET / 3pm PT right here. [Update: Here's the interview...].
