At long last, it may be time for Project Veritas to pay for their lies.

A postmaster in Pennsylvania has claimed he was smeared by Project Veritas for attacking him for supposedly "backdating mail-in ballots to sway the outcome of the 2020 presidential election for Joe Biden."

In a new ruling, the judge ruled that the lawsuit shall continue.

Postmaster Robert Weisenbach has said he voted for Trump, but he was targeted by the James O'Keefe-led group.

Law and Crimes writes:

He says that did not stop Project Veritas from running a “fabricated” story by an alleged anonymous “whistleblower” who described Weisenbach as a “Trump hater” and claimed to have overheard him plotting to backdate ballots.

The so-called “whistle-blower,” U.S. Postal Service employee Richard Hopkins, recanted his remarks to the inspector general. Hopkins later asserted his about-face was coerced and reaped a windfall, making $130,000 over GoFundMe before that account was suspended and $236,000 over GiveSendGo, according to the lawsuit.


On Thursday evening, a judge with the Erie County Court of Common Pleas gave Weisenbach the green light to pursue his claims against Hopkins, Project Veritas, and its founder James O’Keefe.

Let's all hope Robert Weisenbach gets the justice he deserves, and all the liars get punished.

On November 11, 2020, C&L wrote about this alleged fraud: USPS Whistleblower Admits His Project Veritas Claim Of Voter Fraud Was A Lie!

A postal worker from Pennsylvania's voter fraud claims prominently featured in interviews and statements by top Republicans is....not true. The Washington Post is reporting that it was all a lie!!


Initially, the postal worker, Richard Hopkins, claimed that "a postmaster in Erie, Pa., instructed postal workers to backdate ballots mailed after Election Day." This statement was cited by Lindsey Graham in a letter he wrote to the Department of Justice calling for a federal investigation. Shortly afterwards, Bill Barr authorized federal prosecutors to "open probes into credible allegations of voting irregularities and fraud." The affidavit and its allegations were also used as part of the basis for the federal lawsuit filed on Monday in Pennsylvania.

How quickly things changed, though. On Monday, Hopkins told USPS investigators that he lied and that he wanted to recant the affidavit he signed. The Postal Service IG's office informed members of Congress on Tuesday that Hopkins had pulled a "just kidding, taksey backsey".

Hopkins false allegations were actually part of a Project Veritas "sting" last week. Conservative trickster, James O'Keefe, called Hopkins “an American hero” and a GoFundMe page was created for him. It raised over $135,000 on GoFundMe Tuesday afternoon, before GoFundMe took it down and refunded all of the donations.
