O'Keefe Declines On-Camera Interview At Tea Party Event

Blog ››› ››› JOE STRUPP

James O'Keefe has made a name for himself by using hidden video recordings to promote his agenda.

But he apparently doesn't like to be interviewed on camera himself.

After addressing a crowd of some 200 Tea Party members in New Jersey at the group's state convention Saturday in East Windsor -- in which he mentioned his controversial Planned Parenthood stings - O'Keefe declined to be interviewed on camera when approached by Media Matters for America.

Despite several requests for a comment on the Planned Parenthood controversy, O'Keefe refused to go on camera, then walked away.

The incident comes a month after O'Keefe barred the Asbury Park Press from video recording a speech he gave in Keyport, N.J., on March 17 before another Tea Party group.
