James O’Keefe Leaves as Leader of Project Veritas

From a New York Times story by Michael S. Schmidt, David A. Fahrenthold, and Adam Goldman headlined “James O’Keefe Leaves His Post as the Leader of Project Veritas”:

James O’Keefe, who as the leader of the conservative group Project Veritas used theatrical stunts, undercover stings and other deceptive tactics in efforts to inflict embarrassment and charges of hypocrisy and wrongdoing on perceived liberal enemies in politics and the media, has left his post.

His departure came amid an uproar among the group’s staff about his leadership style, his treatment of subordinates and his use of the group’s funds for high-priced expenses like flights on a private plane.
