O'Keefe Defrauds Government, Lies About Work Done As Census Worker

Conservative activist, recently convicted for entering a federal building under false pretenses, has released his newest project on Andrew Breitbart's Big Government, unveiling his latest target - the U.S. Census Bureau.
On April 27, 2010, I got a job with the United States Census Bureau in New Jersey. With a hidden camera, I caught four Census supervisors encouraging enumerators to falsify information on their time sheets. Over the course of two days of training, I was paid for four hours of work I never did. I was told to take a 70 minute lunch break, was given an hour of travel time to drive 10 minutes, and was told to leave work at 3:30pm. I resigned prior to doing any data collection but confronted Census supervisors who assured me, “no one is going to be auditing that that level,” and “nobody is going to be questioning it except for you.” Another Census supervisor only said he’d adjust my pay after I gave him a letter recanting my hours.
What O'Keefe fails to mention is that he edited out portions of the tape that show management telling employees to be accurate with their recording.  That segment was aired on ABC's Good Morning America.

When confronted with the fact that he edited out important information, O'Keefe tried to squirm his way out of his tight spot, claiming that what George Stephanopoulos played showed the Census management saying one thing but meaning another.

What I think is interesting is that this fraud masquerading as a journalist admitted to defrauding the government for his time he posed as a Census employee.

"Over the course of two days I was paid for as many of 3 ½ to 4 hours of work I didn't do," O'Keefe said.

I won't hold my breath for the complete unedited videos to come out from Breitbart & Co.  


  1. Kevin, can we call anything this charlatan does a surprise? My only regret is that he isn't doing time.

  2. I'm not as surprised as I am disgusted. The comments on Big Government show a blatant disregard for the law, as well as this nation...

    I hope more people come out against this fraud...
