O'Keefe at it again, now attempting to scam Planned Parenthood

Mar 2008
Broadcast Depth
When a man showed up at eight Planned Parenthood clinics in five states within five days, claiming that he ran an underage sex trafficking ring, Planned Parenthood reported it to the FBI. They also figured it was probably a "hoax" in which anti-abortion types were trying to catch clinic employees saying something damning on tape.

Planned Parenthood was right. Today, Live Action, an anti-abortion group run by James O'Keefe associate Lila Rose, posted a video it claims shows a Planned Parenthood employee in New Jersey instructing a "pimp" on how to get his underage and illegal immigrant sex workers STD testing and abortions.

It's not even different from the ACORN scam story. Sad that I knew O'Keefe was involved before I even read his name. I figured I'd post this before the Right Wing echo chamber could gain traction with this botched scam.

The thing about stuff like this is, it isn't going to convert anyone from one side to the other. The available responses are "its a scam" and "see, we knew it all along".
