— A woman who falsely told reporters from The Washington Post that embattled Alabama Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore impregnated her when she was a teenager and then suggested she get an abortion was apparently part of a hoax by a conservative group, according to the Post.
The newspaper never published Jaime Phillips’ dramatic claims about a sexual relationship with Moore when she was 15 years old, after becoming suspicious about whether she was telling the truth.
Phillips apparently denied working with any group, but Post reporters caught her on Monday morning going into the New York offices of Project Veritas, an organization founded by James O’Keefe, and known for using false information and video recordings to target the media and liberal groups.
O’Keefe didn’t respond to Post reporter’s questions about the woman.
Post reporters found inconsistencies in the woman's story and an Internet post that raised doubts about her motivations.— Washington Post (@washingtonpost) November 27, 2017
Today, reporters saw her walking into Project Veritas, an organization that targets journalists in an effort to embarrass them. https://t.co/W05qDKlhl8
O’Keefe was convicted of a misdemeanor in 2010 after using a fake identity at a federal building. He also pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of breaking into a Louisiana senator’s office in 2010.
Looks like Project Veritas tried to pull one over on the Post. That didn't work. https://t.co/CLAHqXEf8P— Dan Zak (@MrDanZak) November 27, 2017
The Washington Post broke the news about multiple women accusing Moore of trying to date them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s. He has denied the allegations and refused to end his campaign. Moore is running for the seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Wow - Looks like Project Veritas (that James O’Keefe thing) tried and failed to trick the Washington Post with a fake Roy Moore accuser… they caught on.. and published a story on the whole thing. https://t.co/rDud4w0CS9— Hadas Gold (@Hadas_Gold) November 27, 2017
Project Veritas tried to sell a "Moore made a girl get an abortion" tale to the WaPo. Without any supporting documentation. From a (fake) source whose back-story fell apart after minimal research. https://t.co/U3n5PgqaC9— Pé Resists (@4everNeverTrump) November 27, 2017

BARSTOW, Calif. — Former Disney Channel star Orlando Brown was recently arrested following what authorities say was a violent altercation at an apartment in California.
The 30-year-old “That’s So Raven” actor was reportedly engaged in a dispute with his girlfriend and his girlfriend’s mother when an officer from the Barstow Police Department arrived on the scene at around 8 a.m. Thursday.
The officer realized there were active arrest warrants on Brown and his girlfriend’s mother, so they were both arrested and booked into the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Barstow Jail, according to a police press release.
Brown’s bail was set at $25,000.

BAY LAKE, Fla. — What happens when you meet your favorite Disney character for the first time?
Check out what happened Friday night when Atlas, a service dog, saw Pluto for the very first time up close at Walt Disney World.
With his friend recording, Julian Gavino took his Golden Retriever to meet Pluto Friday night at Epcot.
Gavino told ABC News until this past week, Atlas only knew of Pluto as a giant stuffed doll, because he has one at home that "he loves so much."
But the two hit off when they met as real live dogs.
Gavino posted the video on Facebook and wrote "Atlas was more than excited to meet his best pal look alike."
