After being called a “modern-day Watergate burglar,” right-wing professional liar James O’Keefe and Project Veritas member Allison Maass have been slapped with a million-dollar lawsuit from an organization of Democratic campaign consultants that alleges they committed fraud so they could launch a “sting” operation against them.

Raw Story reports:

The Intercept reports that Democracy Partners has filed a lawsuit against O’Keefe and his organization Project Veritas, which it alleges falsified documents to get access to the group’s members.

The suit accuses Project Veritas member Allison Maass of concocting an elaborate cover story and using forged documents to get an internship with the group, with the goal of secretly recording members’ conversations and using them in political propaganda videos.

“Basically O’Keefe and Maass were modern-day Watergate burglars,” said Joe Sandler, an attorney representing Democracy Partners. “They used fraud to get Maass a position as an intern at Democracy Partners so they could steal documents and secretly videotape conversations. There is no question that, in doing so, they violated federal and D.C. law and should be held liable for the damages suffered by our clients as a result.”

Last summer, Maass was nabbed trying to infiltrate the campaign of Russ Feingold, who was running for senate in Wisconsin. She was also caught in a failed attempt to get Hillary Clinton campaign staffers to accept improper donations.

What is it about our democratic system of government that offends these toe-heads so much?
