Short version: After "watergate 2" blew up in the media's face-O'Keefe is now being accused of being a racist because he attended a conference. At the conference was FR's own Trueblackman.

Giving quotes in Press Releases, writing Op-ED and conducting media appearances mostly of my own accord. 2)I have been a simple advisor to Project 21 and I have never been paid or listed on their paid staff at anytime. 3)As far as my appearance at the Leadership Institute, I personally arranged my appearance and travel as I...
