James O’Keefe’s Infiltration attempts on Open Society Foundation
One of the staff members of the Soros Open Society Foundation was recently confronted by an unusual encounter when a conservative activist James O’Keefe made an unexpected call to the institution. O’Keefe intentions for calling, however, were malicious. According to Geraghty Dana, who was on the phone, the activist identified himself as “Victor Kesh” and a Hungarian national. He claimed to be interested in getting involved with the society to fight for European values. He later ended his call by asking Dana for a person he could contact and left her with his contacts.
However, O’Keefe was not intelligent enough to hang the phone before picking a conversation with another unidentified person. In the voicemail extracted, he is overheard instructing the other person not to say a word before he hangs up. Furthermore, he proceeds with a 10-minute discussion on how he intends to execute his plan. He suggests some other individuals to makes 100 of such calls to the organization. Also, he suggests opening Geraghty’s LinkedIn page to access some information to ease his plan. This, however, would expose his LinkedIn account. Later Dana forwarded the voicemails to the Chris Stone, the president of the organization who ridiculed O’Keefe terming him technologically naïve. However, he suspected malice against them in O’Keefe’s plot.
