Scandal and a little craziness goes down in the Open Society Foundations’ offices. And for reasons few can say. The OSF is an international organization founded by George Soros. But this isn’t why we’re now discussing it. The firm appeared in recent news due to a prankster’s attempt to infiltrate it.
The man who intended the breech is reported as the infamous James O’Keefe. James, the conservative activist of course. O’Keefe is notorious for undercover stints that at times go wrong. Wrong like what occurred in this failed operation he’s found guilty of.
Here’s what happened exactly. You may get a good laugh the way most did.
Disguised by the name, Victor Kesh, James O’Keefe reaches the Open Society Foundations’ office phone line. Success seems imminent at this point. He is then sent to voicemail on http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/politics/2016/03/10/billionaire-smackdown-george-soros-funds-effort-to-stop-trump-mobilize-latinos/. Once that happened, this conservative activist was overheard speaking to another person. He was telling them not to talk until he had hung up.
And then, for some odd and strange reason, James begins to dissect his plan. He apparently thought he hung up but didn’t. Oops. He explains the details with whomever he speaks too. From the ongoing conversation, it’s obvious that O’Keefe is hoping to infiltrate Open Society’s offices in order to get directly to George Soros.
His disguised persona was Hungarian. Or so he claimed. The choice of nationality is striking as George Soros himself was a refugee from Hungry. During the Nazi occupation of Hungry in World War II, George Soros was forced into London at the age of 13. He then began gruesome labor in the train yards.
When that got to be down and out, George Soros began as a server in a restaurant. The education he then received from the London School of Economics paved his future and a clear path. That path led to who we see today in the shoes of a man whose name is known by finance and investing.
Today, a conservative activist attempted to find common ground with Soros by suggesting himself as Hungarian also. But the failure is evident and clear. In a simple recording from a voicemail module, we know the full story. We glimpse at the stupidity. Why James O’Keefe targeted THIS Soros organization is beyond anyone’s comprehension.
The failed task leaves the prankster as much of a clown as his actions were. It made for good TV fodder, however, as people ate the story up.

The Open Society Foundations gives grants worldwide for various causes that it supports. These would include: education, public health, independent media and overall justice. While James O’Keefe has produced film appearing on NPR, he has also found himself at the end of U.S. Law. In a very bad way.
He pleaded guilty to infiltrating a government owned facility and under false pretenses. His consequences has led him to be charged, with confinement to one state and community services in many occasions.
And this may be the end of his efforts with George Soros as we know it.
