James O’Keefe and Project Veritas Make First Amendment History: Secret Recording of Massachusetts Public Officials Deemed Constitutional

James O’Keefe and Project Veritas made First Amendment history on Monday.

A Massachusetts court ruled prohibiting secret recording of public officials in unconstitutional.

Project Veritas broke the news on Monday.

Project Veritas attorneys Benjamin Barr and Steve Klein have received word from the United States Court for the District of Massachusetts of its victory in Project Veritas Action Fund v. Conley. The lawsuit filed against the state argued that the Massachusetts law prohibiting the secret recording of public officials was unconstitutional.

Said James O’Keefe, founder and president of Project Veritas Action:

“Project Veritas has made First Amendment history. With the summary judgement in this case being entered in our favor, PVA v Conley becomes the first case in United States history to hold that secretly recording government officials is protected by the First Amendment”

This is great news for O’keefe and investigative journalists who expose public officials for corruption, lies and criminal intent.

The Court agreed in today’s ruling that secretly recording government officials is a “basic, vital, and well-established liberty safeguarded by the First Amendment.”

The court’s decision will help James O’Keefe and Project Veritas in their mission to expose corruption, dishonesty, self-dealing, waste, fraud, and other misconduct in both public and private institutions.

James told The Gateway Pundit on Monday, “Project Veritas has made First Amendment history. With the summary judgement in this case being entered in our favor, PVA v Conley becomes the first case in United States history to hold that secretly recording government officials is protected by the First Amendment. This wasn’t the New York Times. It wasn’t the Washington Post. Veritas made history.”

Congrats to James and the Project Veritas team!

Of course, The New York Times and Washington Post ignored the historic ruling.
