On Tuesday, the O'Keefe Media Group released a video in which founder James O'Keefe traveled to Maryland to speak with residents whose names and addresses matched those of people who'd donated tens of thousands of dollars to ActBlue and other Democratic political organizations and campaigns.
The residents appeared shocked, and while some admitted to donating in some capacity, they all vehemently denied having made such massive contributions.
According to O'Keefe, Federal Election Commission data compiled by citizen journalist-led group Election Watch revealed that hundreds of senior citizens across the country had been making hundreds, and in some cases thousands, of donations per year to ActBlue and other left-leaning political causes.
O'Keefe questioned whether those involved were "victims of what appeared to be a money laundering scheme," or whether they were actually participating in illegal activity. Data in hand, he began calling residents and showing up at their front doors to discuss the matter.
The first resident denied having donated $35,000 in over 3,000 separate installments, and when pressed he said O'Keefe should "talk to Donald Trump" and "hit him with a bat." Before slamming the door, he said he wanted to see a scar on Trump's head and told O'Keefe to "stop f*cking with [him]."
At the next house, the resident claimed to have donated $5 to ActBlue every once in a while, but certainly not the thousands of dollars purported to have come from her name and address. This pattern continued throughout O'Keefe's investigation, with residents often appearing baffled when presented with the numbers.
One elderly man who records show donated over $200,000 stated that his wife possibly given a small amount to ActBlue in the past, but that he never had, and was unaware that his identity was potentially being used.
"Do you think you can find at least some of these individuals?" the man asked, to which O'Keefe replied, "That's what I do, sir."
In the hours since OMG released the footage, the top Election Administrator in Maryland, Linda Lamone, announced a timeline for her resignation. During a Zoom meeting with the Maryland State Board of Elections, Lamone revealed that she would be stepping down around September 1.
