In the recent past, James O’Keefe’s attempt to gain access to a group funded by Soros failed to materialize because he did not hang up the phone. As James was calling the Open Society Foundation, he introduced himself as Victor Kesh. However, unaware that he had not hang up, he engaged an unidentified person concerning his plan.
In a voicemail to Dana Geraghty, James is heard asserting that Kesh is Hungarian-American. He goes further to posit that he would like to be involved in aiding the company fight for European values. James requests Dana to direct him to a contact person and leaves a number. As soon as Kesh completes the call, James is heard asking someone to keep mum until he hangs up the phone.
In a 10-minute conversation about his plan against the group, Kesh is heard saying that it would be prudent to use Dana’s LinkedIn page to get to George Soros. After a while, he realizes that this move would not serve anything but revealing his own LinkedIn account to Dana. Later, Dana asserted that she was scared when the group started talking about her as the point of entry. Dana goes on to contend that based on their discussions, James and his group was not well versed in matters of technology.
On receipt of the voicemail, the foundation’s president, Chris Stone, scoffed at their effort to dupe Dana. While comparing the group with the Watergate burglars, Stone asserted that the group looked bad. Stone went on to argue that since the group could not use the internet browser, it was ill prepared to carry out an undercover operation. Stone decried O’Keefe and his group for their dirty tricks.
