Tuesday, October 18, 2016

James O'Keefe has claimed his first scalp since releasing his latest bombshell undercover video. Scott Foval, the National Field Director of Americans United for Change--who can be seen in the video bragging about paying homeless and mentally ill individuals to cause disruptions at political events--has been fired from the organization.

Americans United For Change made the announcement in a statement from the group's president. "Americans United for Change has always operated according to the highest ethical standards," said Brad Woodhouse, President of Americans United For Change. "Scott Foval is no longer associated with Americans United for Change."In the undercover video, Foval admits to coordinating dirty tricks including what is known as "birddogging", or infiltrating Trump campaign events in order to incite anarchy and violence.

I hope hes not too despondent and shoots himself twice in the back of the head with a disappearing gun in a "locked from the inside" hotel room.

Knowing how much he knows, that would be sad....

Fired for deplorable behavior.

He would have been promoted and given a raise in Trump's campaign.

Now if you want to hear what these cretins said, it is much worse. It shows how the DNC operates a dirty trick campaign using a shadow organization.www.youtube.com More to come till the election.

Since this Democrat shill was fired, it lends credibility to his claimed actions. No surprise that Democrats and their party operatives are the true deplorables in this presidential election.

Wow Corky, is that all you got? No cries of "the Russians are behind James O'Keefe" or "the video was clearly dubbed by KGB agents"?

What are the chances that NYT, WaPo, the big 3 or CNN report this story?

Since 96% of presidential media donations have gone to Clinton this election....

Not necessary. O'Keefe has never produced a video with which he hasn't tampered.

So I guess he tampered so much with this one that this douchenozzle was fired because of it.

From CNN's search page:

"Your search for 'Scott Foval' did not match any documents."

Nothing on ABC News either.

If you google "Scott Foval Fired" the only newspaper to pick this up are the Washington Times and the Boston Herald...you would think that this would be bigger mainstream news, wouldn't you?

Funny how that works.

When is he going to be arrested for inciting violence?

The news would have to respond to that.

I was thinking the same thing, but the MSM will probably rally to get James O'Keefe arrested again instead.

Poor O'Keefe...so misunderstood.

I wonder how many hundreds of thousands of dollars he will have to pay to settle the resulting lawsuits this time.

Who is going to arrest him?

Did he violate a state crime or a federal crime. If it's federal I can guarantee he won't be arrested and charged with anything. Not under this DoJ.

Jeff - he incited violence. That is a crime in any state and it is a federal crime since it was at a presidential rally.

He should be arrested.

In 1969, the U.S. Supreme Court made history by ruling that, to merit conviction, the violence advocated must be intended, likely and imminent. freespeechdebate.com

18 - it seemed like they spent more time with the DNC denying the claim than they did showing the actual video of what was said.

Foval wasn't fired for what he did. He was fired for it being found out too close to the election. My guess is that he will find a new home in the Clinton machine on or about November 9th regardless of who wins the election.

I see a big fat paying job at the Clinton Foundation coming his way!

Or maybe Czar of propaganda.
