2. Unfortunately, O'Keefe will probably skate on this

Having set up only a few charities in New York, my experience is pretty limited. Since I've dealt with them, however, I think there are only a couple of things the Attorney General can do.

First, the State could revoke the charitable status of Project Veritas. Donors can still give them money but they won't be entitled to a tax deduction. There might be a monetary sanction but probably not.

Second, fines and/or damages could be levied against the individuals who signed the relevant documents. These are relatively minor civil violations, however, and it would be unlikely that those people would face any jail time, they'd just pay some fines. (Meanwhile, their donors would probably just insist that they up their salaries to cover any legal costs.)

It sucks but that might be it.
