Every time you scratch the surface with his Project Veritas crap you find ... nothing. Any announcement by him or his group in the future should be covered by the media saying immediately that due to their record whatever they're claiming is likely a lie and should be discounted without actual proof as determined by an independent investigation. Not that they'd ever do that because that would be slanting left. After all, "reality has a liberal bias."

The Wisconsin Department of Justice has again concluded that secretly recorded videos of a liberal activist reveal no evidence of election fraud.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Monday that it had obtained investigatory reports that show the probe into recordings made by conservative group Project Veritas during the run-up to the 2016 election ended on May 2 with no crimes substantiated.

The investigative film group released footage in October 2016 of Scott Foval boasting about connections to the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Foval, who was based in Wisconsin, appears to say he had arranged for people to incite violence at Donald Trump rallies and that it would be easier to get away with voter fraud if out-of-state residents drive to the polls themselves rather than organizers busing them in.

Republican Attorney General Brad Schimel said shortly after the videos were released that he was worried they suggest election fraud. Word broke in April 2017 that the state Justice Department Criminal Litigation Director Roy Korte had concluded that January that the statements in the videos were vague and lack context. He said there was no basis to believe the videos show or suggest violations of state law.

James O’Keefe, the conservative activist who runs Project Veritas, accused Schimel of not mounting a serious investigation. Days later, Schimel said the investigation was ongoing.

That last sentence is disturbing. Seriously, a baseless accusation by a serial liar and fraud caused him to continue a bogus investigation? I guess it's still true, Republicans fall in line.
