George Soros is the chair and founder of Open Society, a network of Foundations, projects, and partners in over 100 countries all over the world. Soros has demonstrated a strong commitment to the idea of Open Society where governments are held accountable, and people’s rights are respected, and no one has a monopoly on truth. These values drive the Open Society and make it unique unlike other private philanthropic effort.
Recently, James O’Keefe, a conservative activist, had a plan to infiltrate the Open Society Foundations. This was revealed after an audio call was captured by Dana Geraghty after O’Keefe left a message on her voice mail. In his call, O’Keefe identified himself as Victor Kesh. He stated that he wanted to be involved with Soros Open Society Foundations. However, after leaving the message, O’Keefe naively failed to hang up the phone, and he could be heard in the background talking with an unidentified person. He goes ahead to engage the unknown person with his detailed plan to infiltrate the Foundations.
At one point, O’Keefe is heard saying that he was opening Geraghty LinkedIn Page to use information from the page to acquit himself with the Foundations and ease his entry. Geraghty said that it was chilling to hear James O’Keefe diabolical plan to infiltrate the Open Society and use her in the process. Chris Stone, the president of the Foundations, ridiculed the naive attempt. However, he affirmed the real intention was not funny.
