Watch: Huge Political Money Laundering Uncovered

When James O’Keefe was fired from his own media organization, Project Veritas, last month due to disagreements with the executives, which shocked the journalistic community. But O’Keefe didn’t stay down for very long. He founded O’Keefe Media Group (OMG) in March, and the new venture won its first significant story on Tuesday.
 

OMG examined information from the FEC regarding the well-known Democratic fundraising organization ActBlue. Their investigation turned up what O’Keefe refers to as “a bizarre level of data” on individual donors, especially elderly people, who made donations. According to FEC data, some people are listed as giving thousands of dollars a year, which adds up to enormous sums — $200,000 or more in some instances — of money.

To be clear, those contributions total tens of thousands or up to hundreds of thousands under different sole individuals. They are made up of thousands of smaller donations each year, not thousands of dollars.

O’Keefe used the publicly available data to locate some of the Maryland donors and get their confirmation that they had been giving ActBlue thousands of small contributions each year.

For instance, an elderly citizen gave more than 1,000 times individually in 2022, giving a little more than $18,000 overall. That would imply that she gave to ActBlue three times every day for a year. She was questioned if she had given to the charity on purpose, the Maryland senior said to O’Keefe that while she had occasionally given a few dollars to the cause, she had definitely not given that much money or that frequently. She was questioned if she had given to the charity on purpose.

“I wish I could contribute $18,000 to Biden’s presidential campaign, but I only occasionally give to politics. “ActBlue is what I donate to politically, and I don’t make a lot of contributions. As I said, I donate $5 once in a while, because I give to several other charities.”

The thought that she could have that much cash to donate to a political candidate made the lady appear almost giddy.

A citizen of Arizona, age 80, was found to have contributed 18,672 times individually for a grand total of $170,221.37. The data indicates that she makes donations up to ten times per day. The lady, when confronted by an OMG reporter, expressed astonishment at the amount and insisted she did not make those contributions and was totally unaware that they were being done in her name frequently and for such a large sum of money.

A lawsuit filed in the Maryland U.S. District Court by the Maryland 2020 watch and the Gibson Group served as the impetus for OMG’s probe. According to OMG, they have discovered comparable possible money-laundering schemes all over the nation.

ActBlue calls itself “the home of small-dollar donations.”

“We operate as a conduit, meaning that donations made through ActBlue to a campaign or group are regarded as individual donations. We want as many organizations as possible to be able to establish strong beginning-level fundraising programs. Our new platform is available to candidates for the Democratic Party and committees, nonprofit groups, and progressive groups who share our principles for no cost aside from a 3.95% processing charge on donations.”

As a nonprofit ourselves, we’re supported by our own incredible small-dollar donors. “We don’t donate, fundraise, or send emails or texts on behalf of any organization.”
