WOW! Mariel Hemingway Admits She Thought She Was Attending Luncheon With Middle East Funder of Anti-Fracking Movie (Video)

Wasn’t this the whole point of the O’Keefe sting?

This came after journalist James O’Keefe released video this past week where he duped(?) progressives Ed Begley Jr. and Mariel Hemingway to get involved in an anti-fracking film that was funded by Middle Eastern oil interests and harmed America.

Today Hemingway admitted she thought she was attending the luncheon knowing it was organized by a Middle East funder of an anti-fracking movie.

“First of all, I got to tell you, I didn’t even know he was a rich Middle East oil person. I knew he was somebody from the Middle East. That’s all I knew. And I was doing this for a friend. I was going to help a friend to get money for a documentary about anti-fracking. And, I thought, oh, OK, I’ll help a friend… And I happen to love the Earth and the environment so I showed up.”

Hemingway also admitted they waited an hour-and-a-half for the Middle East funder to show up to the meeting.
