O’Keefe Media Group CEO James O’Keefe has followed up on his promise to supply parents and students with tools to record “lying, cheating, stealing, and scamming” in yet another school district in New Jersey, this time Roselle Park.
O’Keefe made the offer in yet another school district plagued by controversy after previously appearing in a June 15th meeting at the Westwood Regional Board of Education meeting that touched on a number of sensitivities and concerns from parents.
This meeting was similar as O’Keefe appeared amid controversies surrounding the last month’s fiasco which parents informed O’Keefe about. Then, outsiders appeared before the board clamoring for the return of a teacher who was terminated for making online postings depicting himself in inappropriate situations.
The outside groups who overran that last Roselle Park school board meeting claimed the teacher fired for making “snuff” videos where he pretended to eat a baby and perform sexual acts on a mannequin, was fired due to his status identifying as a trans female.
O’Keefe referenced this and other issues during his address to the school board where he offered cameras to parents and students in pursuit of one of OMG’s missions to “create more transparency in schools.” O’Keefe’s investigative work in the education space has made numerous headlines over the past decade.
After his meeting in Westwood back in June, the superintendent of the Township responded with a blistering letter banning media from upcoming events.
At the end of the meeting, parents approached O’Keefe who discussed recording tactics with them.
