WASHINGTON - If you think accusations of corruption and election rigging are "loser hysteria," you need to take a few minutes and watch James O'Keefe's latest undercover video released Monday morning.
At about 3:30 in O'Keefe's latest 16 minute video, the subject turns to Bob Creamer, starting with an undercover interview with Creamer.
"Wherever Trump and Pence are going to be, we have events," Creamer tells the undercover reporter. "And we have a whole team across the country that does that. Both consultants and people from the Democratic Party apparatus and people from the campaign, the Clinton campaign. And my role in the campaign is to manage all that."
O'Keefe provides background:
Bob Creamer is Democracy Partners. He is the husband of Jan Schakowsky, a Democratic congresswoman from Chicago. In 2005, he pled guilty to tax violations and bank fraud. He was convicted and sentenced to five months in prison and 11 months of house arrest. He founded Democracy Partners in 2011.
Creamer goes on in the undercover interview. "Just for a little orientation, Democracy Partners is kind of a group practice of a variety of consultants that do, essentially, a wide variety of different kinds of political consulting."
One of Creamer's associates says, "Bob Creamer is diabolical, and I love him for it."
Creamer has provided strategic advice for a wide array of progressive causes ranging from the movement to stop gun violence, defending the Obama Administration’s Iran nuclear deal, raise the minimum wage and guarantee the right of collective bargaining.
During the 2008 and 2012 Presidential Elections he worked with the Democratic National Committee as a consultant to the Obama Presidential Campaign coordinating field based rapid response to Republican Presidential candidates.
During his career, Creamer has worked on hundreds of electoral campaigns at the local, state and national level.
The bio says Creamer started his career in Chicago Leftist political activities:
Creamer began his organizing career in 1970 working with Chicago’s Citizen Action Program (CAP), which had been organized by Saul Alinsky’s Industrial Areas Foundation. CAP successfully campaigned to reduce the sulfur dioxide in Chicago’s air by almost two thirds.
Then he moved to the state level ...
In 1974 he founded the Illinois Public Action Council – later known as Illinois Citizen Action – which became the state’s largest consumer advocacy organization and progressive political coalition. He directed the organization for 23 years.
