James O’Keefe is at it again. The controversial conservative activist has focused his hidden camera on Battleground Texas – the Democratic operation trying to turn Texas blue.

Update, 3:33 p.m.: James O’Keefe is a conservative activist who uses undercover cameras to expose what he calls corruption and dishonesty. His efforts, though, have been criticized.

This week, his group, Project Veritas, released a new video that he says shows North Texas “navigators” who are signing up people for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act.

In the heavily-edited video, the navigators appear to tell a potential consumer to lie about whether he smokes.
