Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe has resigned from the group, according to Neil McCabe, a reporter for One America News Network (OANN).
The non-profit organization, founded by O’Keefe in 2010, investigates and exposes corruption and fraud.
O’Keefe reportedly read his resignation letter to his team and board members at Project Veritas’ headquarters in Mamaroneck, New York.
“Exclusive: @JamesOKeefeIII, my friend and former boss at @Project_Veritas, just read his resignation letter to his former team and board members at their Mamaroneck, N.Y. headquarters,” McCabe tweeted on Monday.
“James will make his own way—as he always has before,” the OAN reporter went on to say.
However, a reporter with Project Veritas pushed back on the accuracy of McCabe’s reporting, indicating O’Keefe did not resign but had been “removed.”
“This is not accurate,” tweeted R.C. Maxwell in response to McCabe’s tweet. “James was removed from his position as CEO by the Project Veritas board.”
