Woman Offering Dubious Claims About Moore Appears Linked To James O'Keefe

How do we do this?' the purported tipster wrote.

O'Keefe and the Post have put out dueling videos of a brief interview outside his offices on Monday in which the conservative activist seeks to turn the tables and question Post reporter Aaron C. Davis, who repeatedly asks O'Keefe whether the woman works for him.

Her wild story was that she met Moore when she was 15 in 1992, the year he became a county judge, through a church group in Talladega, Alabama.

Phillips eventually told the WAPO reporter she didn't agree to go on the record with her story, then she got up and left. The Post did not publish Phillips' claims and confronted her with inconsistencies in her story.

But the reporter grew suspicious after a post online put Phillips' motivations into question. Her cell phone area code was from Alabama, though the 41-year-old claimed she only lived there briefly as a teenager. She told the Post she was not working with any organization that targets journalists.

As part of its reporting, the newspaper cited a GoFundMe fundraising page that bears the name Jaime Phillips of Atlanta. "I've accepted a job to work in the conservative media movement to combat the lies and deceipt of the liberal MSM", the page read.

The poster wrote about moving from Atlanta to NY to work as a researcher and fact-checker "to help our movement".

On Monday morning, Phillips was seen walking into the NY offices of Project Veritas.

Their reporters confronted Mr O'Keefe about the alleged "sting" plot outside his office but he declined to comment.

Another top official at the group is former television producer Robert J. Halderman, who was sentenced to six months in jail in 2010 after he was accused of trying to blackmail late-night host David Letterman.

There, the Post says, they watched Phillips park her vehicle and enter the building.

According to the Washington Post, Phillips claimed that she was interviewed by a Daily Caller employee named Kathy Johnson; the Daily Caller's executive editor told the Washington Post that the outlet has no employee with that name.

Ms Phillips denied being in contact with Mr Moore's election campaign before abruptly cutting off the meeting.

The email promised "I might know something" about Moore - and after a series of communications through the Signal encrypted messaging service, the woman eventually said her name was Jaime Phillips, and that she was willing to meet in person. "Yeah, it was going to be with the Daily Caller, but it ended up falling through, so I wasn't able to do it".
