The Hill reports:
James O’Keefe, the conservative activist who attempted to plant a false story in The Washington Post this month about GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore, was presented Wednesday with an Impact Award handed to him by Ginni Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. O’Keefe accepted the award on behalf of his organization, Project Veritas, at an event hosted by the conservative group United for Purpose at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.
Thomas is a Tea Party activist and president of Liberty Consulting. Project Veritas came under fire in November after The Post revealed that one of the organization’s operatives attempted to plant a false story about Moore, with the intent of undermining the paper’s credibility. The Post had previously published accusations that Moore pursued sexual relationships with girls as young as 14 when he was a district attorney.
Proud to receive the Impact award from Ginni Thomas on behalf of the @project_veritas team. Congrats to the other attendees and award winners Sean Hannity, Larry Arnn, Dan Bongino, Tom Fitton, Frank Gaffney, Charlie Kirk, Rick Manning, Star Parker, Chris Plante, Leonard Leo. These guys are all fighters.

The office of New York attorney general Eric Schneiderman laid groundwork to revoke the charitable status of the conservative group Project Veritas last week, claiming it had misled the state about its president James O’Keefe’s past criminal conviction.
