On Friday, a group of whistleblowers who worked with Project Veritas over the years released a video on social media in support of recently ousted company founder James O'Keefe.
Zach Vorhies, who served as the Google whistleblower for the outlet posted the video on Twitter and it featured over a dozen whistleblowers coming forward, giving their names and the institutions they worked for, and saying "I stand with James O'Keefe."
On Monday, James O'Keefe was removed from the organization after the board placed him on paid leave earlier in February. O'Keefe founded the news outlet in 2011.
The group of O'Keefe supporters served as whistleblowers from organizations such as CBS, CNN, Facebook, Google, United Healthcare, ESPN, the US Department of Health and Human Services, and the Department of Homeland Security.
Project Veritas was known for working with whistleblowers to expose corruption, especially from far-left ideology, in large institutions.
A February 6 memo leaked from 16 Project Veritas employees explained that the group had collective problems with O'Keefe and claimed he exhibited "cruel behavior."
"James has become a power-drunk tyrant and he is exactly who he pontificates on who we should be exposing," wrote one of the 16 employees.
On Monday, initial reporting claimed O'Keefe had resigned but later Project Veritas said O'Keefe was removed from his role as CEO by the Board.
In an exclusive letter obtained by The Post Millennial Editor-at-Large Andy Ngo, O'Keefe said, "I was asked to be gone until the 20th-- it is now the 20th," wrote O'Keefe. "I asked the board to resign for their conduct-- they did not. So currently, I have no position at PV based on the board's actions. So, I'm announcing to you all that today on President's day — I'm packing up my personal effects from headquarters, and I'm intending to start anew."On Monday, Project Veritas lost almost 200,000 followers on Twitter.
