Open Society Foundation recently diffused an attempt by James O’Keefe to infiltrate it. There is an audio of O’Keefe lying to be “Victor Kesh” and leaving a message. He, however, forgot to disconnect his telephone and ended up being recorded speaking of his plans to infiltrate the foundation.

The call that O’Keefe was to Dana Geraghty and he told her that he had an interest in what the foundation does. After the call O’Keefe was heard saying “Don’t say anything before I hang up the phone.” The audio that he was recorded in last about ten minutes and is heard narrating his plans to another person about the group.

His plans to make more calls to the foundations can also be heard as he narrates. He then says that he is opening Geraghty LinkedIn page to get information and use her as an entry point to the organization. However, this was a mistake as his actions resulted in O’Keefe revealing his identity to Geraghty.

His attempts to get into organization does show ignorance his ignorance or lack of enough knowledge in technology as he is caught before he even begins his plans.

Chris Stone the president of Open Society Foundation was given the recording and condemned James O’Keefe actions. He further said that O’Keefe actions were not funny and this was some kind of dirty tricks against the foundation.
