"BREAKING: Project Veritas suspends all operations effective immediately," Harr wrote on Wednesday. "CEO @HannahMGiles and Jen Kiyak of Human Resources cite financial ruin as reason for additional layoffs on 9/20/23 leaving merely a handful of employees left. All investigations halted as of today."
A source close to the matter told The Post Millennial that the journalists who were left on staff after the August 17 mass firing were terminated on Wednesday. The journalists who had remained were essentially relegated to fundraising, as the company was floundering.
"SOS Hannah Giles just fired us all," read a swiftly deleted tweet on August 17. Giles, who became notorious for starring in the ACORN video with founder and former CEO James O'Keefe that launched the company, took over for O'Keefe after he was summarily pushed out by the board of directors. She took over as CEO only to destroy the company entirely.
"Since James quit," a source told Post Millennial, "the donations dried up...the donations never resumed. The board were desperate to bring Hannah on board because they thought it would be cute but the problem is she's a charlatan and a fraud. Everything she's ever done has been a failure and she lied to everyone claiming she had all these donors she could bring in."
In February, O'Keefe stated that he had been suspended from his position as CEO. This came after 16 staffers sent a letter to the Project Veritas board of directors accusing O'Keefe of financial misdeeds and employee harassment.
"James has become a power-drunk tyrant and he is exactly who he pontificates on who we should be exposing," the letter read.
"James O'Keefe IS Project Veritas" began to trend on Twitter. Many supporters and donors all balked at the idea that Veritas could continue without O'Keefe at the helm and prominent conservatives gave their support for O'Keefe.
Veritas said that they were confident in their ability to stay the course and continue to deliver on the mission O'Keefe set out for them, whether he was in charge the project or not. That turned out to not be accurate.
