The fallout from Project Veritas’ latest video has been swift, claiming the job of one of the activists involved and now tying another one directly to the Hillary Clinton campaign.
In hidden camera video from conservative journalist James O’Keefe released Monday, activist Zulema Rodriguez took credit for some of the violence that had happened at Trump events.
She claims that she, along with another activist, “did the Chicago Trump event where we shut down like all the yeah,” along with a similar Arizona disturbance.
he video caused some controversy, especially since Rodriguez was supposed to be a member of a super PAC but said, “I just had a call with the campaign and the DNC, every day at one o’clock,” something that’s very illegal for a representative of a political action committee to do.
Now comes even deeper trouble for Rodriguez: The Daily Caller discovered that FEC filings indicated Rodriguez was paid by the Clinton campaign right around the time of the infamous Chicago protest, in which violent provocateurs managed to shut a Trump rally down.
She was given $1,610.34 for “payroll” and $30 for an item listed as “phone.” (Maybe a Windows Phone? Those go cheap.)
“The payments are both dated Feb. 29, 2016, less than two weeks before the violence in Chicago. Those are the only payments Rodriguez has ever received from the Clinton campaign. It’s not immediately clear what the payment was for, and it’s also unclear whether Rodriguez was really behind the agitation in Chicago or if she was simply making an empty boast,” The Daily Caller reported.
However, what is clear is that the 2016 election has been a very profitable one for Rodriguez. MoveOn.org Political Action gave her an $1,108.97 reimbursement for travel in May, and Stand Up For Ohio PAC gave her $17,500 as a consulting fee one month later. Both PACs are heavily influenced by MoveOn.org.

What James O’Keefe and his journalists have documented is campaign finance shenanigans of the highest order. However, this is how Hillary Clinton always is.
She doesn’t just live at the edge of the rules and regulations. She doesn’t even know where the edge is.
