It looks like Wingnut Welfare Recipient James O'Keefe, aka "The Teabugger," who is no longer remanded to the custody of his parent's basement after his phone tampering fiasco in Louisiana:
SAN DIEGO -- Explosive new information obtained by 10News reveals for the first time the payout for an undercover video that helped bring down the group ACORN.
James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles, who played the role of pimp and prostitute in the video, were both deposed in a civil suit. O'Keefe wore a suit, while Giles donned a dark blouse, in contrast to the images that are familiar to many.
Back in 2009, they were the ones applying the pressure. After posing as pimp and prostitute, the two filmed undercover footage at an office in National City that appeared to show ACORN worker Juan Carlos Vera giving tips on bringing teen prostitutes across the border.
After the footage was posted by conservative activist Andrew Breitbart, Vera was fired. A state probe eventually confirmed Vera was simply playing along with the pimp conversation and had called police.
Eventually, amid a string of other videos, ACORN lost its federal funding and dissolved.
Vera filed suit, claiming O'Keefe had violated state privacy laws, and in a March deposition, there were some revealing statements from O'Keefe.
"He [Breitbart] said he would like to find a way for me to get paid to publish the videos," testified O'Keefe.
O'Keefe gave details about the payout. He testified that before the San Diego undercover taping, Breitbart first saw undercover ACORN videos from the East Coast and wanted to see more.
"Now we have evidence for the first time, Breitbart agreed in advance to participate in the violation of California law," said Gene Iredale, Vera's attorney.
O'Keefe said he was eventually paid $65,000 by Breitbart to blog about the video.
Vera's attorneys now plan to file suit against the estate of Breitbart, who recently died of heart failure.
Sweet work if you can get it, but it is wingnut welfare. Check that. The money may be good, but it comes with a cost.
Initially it is a good gig. Just say crazy shit and cash in. But just about anyone can say crazy shit. So to stay ahead of the crowd and keep receiving the wingnut welfare, chumps like the Teabugger have to produce ever more shrill the wingnuttery - thereby creating a death spiral of dependency where the winger is forced into more and more extreme behavior and rhetoric to receive his fix. This occurs until his very behavior causes him to crash, disgraced, discredited and friendless. Case in point see: Gingrich, Newton Leroy.
