Deposition Reveals Payout For Undercover ACORN Video

Source: San Diego News 10

...

"He said he would like to find a way for me to get paid to publish the videos," testified O'Keefe.

O'Keefe gave details about the payout. He testified that before the San Diego undercover taping, Breitbart first saw undercover ACORN videos from the East Coast and wanted to see more.

"Now we have evidence for the first time, Breitbart agreed in advance to participate in the violation of California law," said Gene Iredale, Vera's attorney.

O'Keefe said he was eventually paid $65,000 by Breitbart to blog about the video.

2. thanks for posting

I didn't realize this case was going forward, so glad to hear it.

Vera is the ACORN worker that actually called the cops on O'Keefe's pimp. He was just humoring him while he was in the office. There's video of O'Keefe and Giles wondering why Vera was writing down their license plate numbers out in the parking lot.

23. yeah, well what's really sad

is our congress democrats were willing to cave and screw ACORN on such bogus charges. What it shows is that the rightwing wackos can pull any stunt, lie and get what they want. Which reminds me, I believe one of turdblossom's first "stunts" was for a southern governor's election. Apparently, he doctored a photo with the democrat and a black woman and making the innuendo that he was having an affair. With a complicit paper, they ran the false photo-even when it was proved false, the democratic candidate lost.

You got some people in this country who actually believe that the media doesn't lie. Really, today's media, especially faux, doesn't lie.

4. Isn't Breitbart the guy that overdosed on cocaine.....

And "some people say" he abused alcohol, No wonder his heart popped.
What kind of evil asshole would pay to destroy a group of people trying
to help poor people, Oh wait, they were black and voted for Obama.

6. Was Breitbart's death actually ruled to be from a cocaine overdose?

I thought it was just a heart attack from his general over-ingestion of unhealthy things.

7. The coroner ruled it heart failure

though now the coroner has died - supposedly from aresnic poisoning. (I could not find a reliable link to that so I won't post one here apparently Breitbart's fans are all suspicious about that).

10. The reliable stories are full of maybe's -- but do mention poison

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2012/04/possible-arsenic-poisoning-death-of-coroner-official-a-mystery.html

It could takes months to get a final determination on the cause of death for Los Angeles County coroner's official Michael Cormier, who officials said appears to have died from poisoning.

Law enforcement sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing, said that finding the presence of poison does not necessarily mean the death was a homicide because the substance could have accidentally entered his system. According to sources, arsenic was one poison being examined as a potential cause but stressed that no final determination has been made.

Ed Winter, deputy chief coroner, said that an autopsy had been performed but that a determination of the cause of death has been deferred pending further tests.

"At this point we haven't ruled out foul play," added Lt. Alan Hamilton of the Los Angeles Police Department.

5. Something I've always wondered about those tapes...

Do we know for sure that the "Acorn staffers" seen talking about prostitution in the tapes actually WERE ACORN staffers?

If Breitbart was going to recruit everybody else...wouldn't it have been fairly easy for him to recruit ringers for those "roles"?

15. Putting "moles" in ACORN would have taken longer than these guys would have liked...

...and how many of them are dedicated enough to stay under cover there long enough to have been in the positions they were in? They'd have had to spend years actually doing ACORN's work. Payoff horizon is too long for them.

Investigations into the tapes' claims have found heavy and misleading editing, but as far as I know no collusion with the any of the ACORN people seen on the tapes.

16. "heavy and misleading editing" was Breitbart's forte

his "specialty" so-to-speak. It's how he ruined Shirley Sherrod, too.

8. O'Keefe was eventually paid $65,000. Where did Breitbart get that money?

That is the question that must be answered.

12. Not Sure The Source Of Breitbart's Fortune

But he was even richer than Romney so $65,000 is just pocket change to him.

18. According to Wikipedia, his father was a banker and he grew up in Brentwood.

That would explain it.

I wonder whether his parents are still living.

14. Team evil pays, people!

Pay for "assistant ratfucker" sure as hell beats most jobs for 20-somethings. Or for most Americans for that matter, since $65K is more than 30% over median family income.
