    WASHINGTON, DC - Project Veritas, the group headed by James O'Keefe and known for their undercover video operations on ACORN, NPR and voter fraud, has released a new video that exposes waste and corruption behind stimulus-funded "Green jobs."

    "The purpose of our investigation is to illustrate that many of the jobs being championed -- and funded -- by the Obama administration are merely paper positions that come at great expense to the American taxpayer," says O'Keefe. "Digging holes just to fill them up again is not meaningful work, nor does it produce economic output for a recovery. Giving people jobs for jobs' sake will not revitalize an economy or restore our country's future."

    In the investigation, top New York union bosses are caught in candid discussions regarding a federally-funded program known as "Green Jobs, Green New York," with one leader calling much of the $112 million program "bullshit."

    "This is significant because labor unions are some of the biggest beneficiaries of taxpayer-funded jobs," says O'Keefe. "If they're intentionally propping up paper jobs, then they're complicit in the fleecing of taxpayers."

    The video from Project Veritas also captures union officials discussing their lobbying power with state and federal officials in passing of "job bills," which help fund this scheme.

    Care to state with specificity exactly why we should not trust this person? Can you do it without an ad hominem attack?

    The best and most incriminating parts came straight from the union and politicians mouths. Are you suggesting that little dude MADE them capitulate to his sinister plan to defraud the American taxpayers?

    Fuck you're stupid.
