Hilarious: Fake Right-Wing Blogger Offers O'Keefe Crack-Pipe Money; O'Keefe Accepts

Blogger Ian Murphy, the fake "David Koch" who pranked Scott Walker so memorably this Spring, walked into RightOnline this week under a pseudonym ("Jay Mitchell Huntsman") as a conservative blogger whose online domain was the hilariously-titled blog  Eagles, Guns & Eagle-Guns. With this blog as his credential, Murphy walked into the conference and got all fanboy on prankster  James O'Keefe, even offering to buy him lunch. Only when he revealed that his fortune came from selling crakc-ipies was O'Keefe deterred from dining with him--but he took his money anyway.

Here's a little excerpt below--read the full story at The Buffalo Beast. The conversation begins just after "Jay Mitchell Huntsman" has told O'Keefe where his money comes from:

“Are you serious?” he asked as we approached the escalator.

“YEAH! That’s what they’re for–and I had the good sense to invest in the company in my late teens. It’s paid off rather handsomely. And what do I care about the blacks, you know? It’s not like they sell these things to productive members of society or anything.”

I was straining credulity. It was written all over his long, squinty face. He fished his phone out of his pocket and just said, “Oh.”


“I’m really sorry,” he said, “but something’s come up. I’m going to have to take a rain check.”

“SHIT!” was my genuine response. I’d fucked this thing hard. Too fast! Too much! Shit!

“Maybe some other time,” he said, extending his hand.

“Well, I understand you’re a busy guy, but I said I’d buy you a meal and I’m going to!” I said, ignoring his hand and flipping through my wallet. “Take it.” He looked down at the $100 bill for 5 seconds of eternity. “Come on! Get yourself something good!”

And he fucking took it. He took my crack pipe money, slipped it in his coat pocket, shook my hand and bolted back the way we came. I rode the elevator down to the first floor, cackling like an absolute madman. Best hundo I’ve ever spent.
