WaPo November 27 at 5:55 PM: A woman who falsely claimed to The Washington Post that Roy Moore, the Republican U.S. Senate candidate in Alabama, impregnated her as a teenager appears to work with an organization that uses deceptive tactics to secretly record conversations in an effort to embarrass its targets.

In a series of interviews over two weeks, the woman shared a dramatic story about an alleged sexual relationship with Moore in 1992 that led to an abortion when she was 15. During the interviews, she repeatedly pressed Post reporters to give their opinions on the effects that her claims could have on Moore’s candidacy if she went public.

The Post did not publish an article based on her unsubstantiated account. When Post reporters confronted her with inconsistencies in her story and an Internet posting that raised doubts about her motivations, she insisted that she was not working with any organization that targets journalists. But on Monday morning, Post reporters saw her walking into the New York offices of Project Veritas, an organization that targets the mainstream news media and left-leaning groups. The organization sets up undercover “stings” that involve using false cover stories and covert video recordings meant to expose what the group says is media bias.

What did we tell you not to do?

      Uh, walk in to Project Veritas's office building.

And what did you do?

      I walked into Project Veritas's office building.

Dumb and dumber. And among the dumb I include James O'Keefe, who actually thinks reporters for the Washington Post are that dumb.

I hope the Post keeps digging. Who financed this escapade into fake news, and was it coordinated with Bannon or the White House?

Yes.

If it was coordinated, they're dumber than I ever imagined.

Peter Thiel funds the operation.

They are a 100% partisan political organization get non-profit charitable status from the IRS?  O’Keefe is a self-confessed political operative.

Thiel was the scyumbag who destroyed Gawker.  He's also the guy who sucks actual blood from healthy teens.
