Scam Artists Accidentally Verify Post's Reporting on Moore Sexual Abuse

"But on Monday morning, Post reporters saw her walking into the NY offices of Project Veritas".

The paper's owner, Amazon.com founder Jeffrey P. Bezos, used the phrase in an interview with The Post's executive editor, Martin Baron, at a tech forum at The Post last May.

It's pretty clear what was happening here: Phillips wanted to catch Post reporters talking in a way that suggested they were out to get Moore.

Red flags were raised during the interview process when Phillips reportedly kept asking The Post reporters for their opinions on how her story might effect Moore's race, and whether her story might crumble his chances to win. The Post said it made a decision to release the woman's comments despite an earlier agreement to be "off the record".

One interesting twist is that the Post chose to breach its off-the-record agreement with Phillips after confirming that she had lied. Then, a Post researcher discovered a GoFundMe page, started by a Jaime Phillips, seeking donations to move to NY for "a job to work in the conservative media movement to combat the lies and deceipt [sic] of the liberal MSM".

Mr Moore has strenuously denied the allegations, saying in a statement that "I have never engaged in sexual misconduct".

They confronted her about inconsistencies in her story, and did not publish the story that would have nearly certainly damaged Roy Moore. "They're anxious that we have a story on them", Project Veritas wrote on its fundraising page, hinting that it would have more selectively edited videos on the way. "Because of our customary journalistic rigor, we weren't fooled, and we can't honour an "off-the-record" agreement that was solicited in maliciously bad faith".

The Post noted other attempts to discredit reporting on accusations of sexual harassment against Roy Moore. That person doesn't exist, and the Daily Caller told The Post that Phillips didn't interview there. Records of the foundation's charitable donations were first provided to the Washington Post in April 2016, when reporter David Fahrenthold was working on finding out whether or not the presidential candidate had kept his word on his charitable giving promises. The woman said Moore sexually assaulted her when she was 15 and then drove her to MS for an abortion.

"I was looking to take a job last summer and to be in NY, but it fell through", Phillips replied. The organisation's founder, James O'Keefe, declined to answer questions from Post reporters.
