"If they [CNN] admit it was a gag, you should release the footage and focus on the fact they got punked, and make sure to emphasize Abbie's name and overall status to help burden her career with this video, incident and her bad judgment in pursuing you so aggressively."
This is starting to seem a little less prank-y and a little more rape-y.
I notice he didn't say try to seduce her, or pretend to seduce her. Did he really think she was going to screw him? Dude must have an extraordinarily rich and twisted fantasy life. Which he probably needs, because if that's his "A" game I can't imagine he's ever gotten laid by an actual female ever.
"Also, on the air just now, CNN said it had proof of another related plot to get CNN to report a fake story while tipping Fox News off to the plot so that it could then undermine CNN's credibility. I doubt the good folks at Fox would participate in such a scheme, and who knows how far that went, or whether it was just a thought, but some adults in the GOP need to get a handle on this kind of stuff sooner rather than later or the kiddos are going to end up with a dirty trick that backfires. Anything that can go viral can also go toxic, after all."
That got kind of confusing later on, I was envisioning some girl dressed in a Santa Claus costume.
I'm kinda afraid to go check out the Right-wing boards
I think the main thing is if you see anyone approaching you with a dildo and furry handcuffs you should probably drop what you're doing and run like hell....

“The woman who stopped a plot by conservative activist James O'Keefe to embarrass a CNN reporter said O'Keefe's latest statement on the matter is ‘clearly not true.’
In an e-mail to CNN, the former executive director of Project Veritas, Izzy Santa, wrote: ‘It's clearly a PR statement for damage control. It's clearly not true but what can you do.’
Santa was reacting to O'Keefe's explanation of what he said would have happened on his boat in August after he agreed to meet CNN Investigative Correspondent Abbie Boudreau, who was working on a documentary about young conservative activists.
… In a two-sentence statement prior to the airing of the documentary, O'Keefe said he did not write the document and that he ‘found certain elements highly objectionable and inappropriate, and did not consider them for one minute following it.’
In a statement posted Monday on his Project Veritas website, O'Keefe again asserted he did not intend to carry out the plan as specified in the document.
… CNN's documentary revealed a series of e-mails, which appear to show O'Keefe's intentions.
In one e-mail to a colleague, written several days before Boudreau's scheduled meeting with O'Keefe, he forwarded an audio recording from the phone conversation he taped without Boudreau's knowledge. O'Keefe wrote: ‘Getting closer. Audio attached of conversation with Abbie. What do you think of her reaction guys...Ben, you think I could get her on the boat?’
In a different e-mail to Santa, O'Keefe gives her specific instructions to help him prepare for the meeting.
‘Please go to fedex and print out pleasure palace graphic on large banner,’ O'Keefe wrote, ‘needs to be ready by late tonight -- if possible...’
Those emails contradict O'Keefe's latest statement, in which he says he did not implement plans detailed in the document.”
