Friday, Project Veritas whistleblowers published a video supporting company founder James O’Keefe, who was ousted on Monday when the board placed him on leave.
In the video, which features more than a dozen whistleblowers from Project Veritas’ work under O’Keefe’s leadership, undercover heroes listed their names and the companies they worked for, and gave a show of support for O’Keefe.
“I stand with James O’Keefe,” each whistleblower said.
The clip was posted to Twitter by Google whistleblower, Zach Vorhies.

Throughout the video, whistleblowers from Pfizer, Google, ESPN, CNN, the U.S. government, and other institutions briefly shared their work with O’Keefe.
Since O’Keefe founded Project Veritas in 2011, the organization has worked with brave individuals from dozens of massive companies, campaigns, and agencies, exposing everything from far-left boardrooms to pedophiles.
Sixteen Project Veritas employees detailed “cruel behavior” from O’Keefe in a February 6 memo, according to the Post Millennial.
One employee even said, “James has become a power-drunk tyrant,” adding that the leader had become every bit like the people “who we should be exposing.”
“James has become a power-drunk tyrant and he is exactly who he pontificates on who we should be exposing,” wrote one of the sixteen.
O’Keefe was also accused of allegedly stealing a pregnant employee’s sandwich because he was “hungry.”
In a letter discovered by the Post Millennial’s Andy Ngo, O’Keefe explained that he had not resigned, as originally reported, but was placed on leave.
“I was asked to be gone until the 20th — it is now the 20th,” O’Keefe wrote.
“I asked the board to resign for their conduct– they did not. So currently, I have no position at PV based on the board’s actions. So, I’m announcing to you all that today on President’s day — I’m packing up my personal effects from headquarters, and I’m intending to start anew.”
Project Veritas has lost over 300,000 Twitter followers in the days following O’Keefe’s ouster Monday in a resounding rebuke of the organization’s move against its cultivator and leader.
