Crooks & Liars: James O'Keefe's Former Accomplice Spills Some More on Antics
-By Nicole Belle
March 22, 2012- One of the things that I've found curious about the pearl-clutching over the revelation that dramatist/monologuist Mike Daisey embellished his experiences at Foxconn is that these self-same media types have no problem breathlessly reporting the next "gotcha" journalism prank of punk James O'Keefe and other Breitbart minions, no matter how ridiculous or epic fail it might be. You'd think "fool me once..." would apply when it comes to a convicted criminal like James O'Keefe, but sadly, it hasn't.
However, there's at least one person who sees O'Keefe clearly for what he is and she's sharing what she knows. Of course, it shouldn't surprise you to hear that she's been subjected to some of the most ugly attacks on Twitter for daring to expose what a puerile, ugly and downright pathological jerk he is.
Last week, we reported that Nadia Naffe, self-described “accomplice” to conservative activist James O’Keefe , had begun publishing a multi-part tell-all series of posts to her blog. Thursday morning, Naffe published the second part, which details her version of the events that led her to file a criminal harassment complaint against O’Keefe in November, and which includes documents related to a sexual harassment settlement between O’Keefe and “CNN Sex Boat Caper” whistleblower Izzy Santa. O’Keefe filed suit against Naffe on Wednesday to obtain an injunction against publication of those documents, and of emails that O’Keefe claims she stole from his computer.
Since publishing the first part of her tell-all, Nadia Naffe has been the subject of relentless attacks on Twitter, and has responded defiantly, promising to publish 7 years worth of O’Keefe’s emails and documents (which she says she obtained when the conservative provocateur borrowed her Android phone and linked his Gmail account with hers), and to give a full accounting of the events that led her to file a criminal harassment complaint against him in November.
