George Soros and the Work of Open Society Foundations

Billionaire George Soros and his company Open Society Foundations nearly got taken. Activist James O’Keefe made a recent attempt to convince the foundation he was someone else and to influence their decision making. A simple mistake however, prevented his sneaky plan affecting Soros and his big time company Open Society Foundations.

It all began when O’Keefe called Open Society Foundations lying and identifying himself as Victor Kesh. A recording of the call shows O’Keefe leaving a message to Dana Geraghty. During the voicemail O’Keefe states that he would like to get involved with and aid in fighting for European values. Again O’Keefe appears to be Hungarian-American Victor Kesh. O’Keefe goes on to end the call but makes a very big mistake. He never hangs up the call. He continued on with a nearly ten minute conversation that was still being recorded. He goes on to basically confess that he made the entire scenario up. “It was a little chilling to hear this group of men talking about me as a ‘point of entry,’” Geraghty said. She ultimately forwarded the voicemail to the foundation’s president, Chris Stone. Source:
