Video activist James O'Keefe hurls charges -- but no video -- at Oregon Bus Project

James O'Keefe, the conservative activist who has gained national publicity with his controversial ambush videos, made some pretty provocative charges in an appearance before the Oregon Tea Party this weekend -- but he didn't back it up with any actual video.

O'Keefe said he went undercover on a trip with the Portland-based Bus Project a group that has worked with several Democratic politicians and that encourages young people to get involved in politics and found "potential drug abuse" and underage drinking. And he made an apparent reference to Gov. John Kitzhaber by saying the "former governor or current governor [was] involved in it."

The charges angered and mystified officials with the Bus Project, who said they are scrupulous about not serving alcohol to minors. And they questioned why O'Keefe is making the charges so long after taking a two-day trip with the Bus Project back in July of 2010.

"I have no reason to believe his two-years-after-the-fact allegations," said Caitlin Baggott, the Bus Project's executive director. </snip>

Who is paying this little turd, now that Breitbart is dead?

1. looks like they are trying to damage the progressive mayoral candidate

Jefferson Smith, Portland born and educated with a law degree from Harvard, founded the Bus Project. He's a progressive, a true progressive. Candidate for Portland mayor!

Someone is paying O'Keefe, as surely as someone is paying the moles and disruptors on progressive message boards.

3. Wow. Kids drinking and using drugs on the bus. Amazing stuff.

 

As a kid, I discovered the concept of the 'paper bag 40' on the city bus. Next O'Keefe is going to tell us that kids have sex and read the failblog.
