Project Veritas has released a third undercover video from campaigns during this 2018 election season. This report shows how Senator Claire McCaskill and individuals working on her campaign keep their liberal views hidden, and that moderate voters can ‘get over it’ when they learn what’s going to happen.
They said that all the issues moderates are concerned about are being concealed, because ‘people can’t know’ where McCaskill really stands.
MCCASKILL: “Well if we elect enough Democrats we’ll get some gun safety stuff done. They won’t let us vote on it, we’ve got 60 votes for a number of measures that would help with gun safety, but McConnell won’t let ’em come to the floor.”
JOURNALIST: “Like bump stocks, ARs and high capacity mags…?”
MCCASKILL: “Universal background checks, all of that… But if we have the kind of year I think we might have I think we could actually be in a position to get votes on this stuff on the floor and we’d get 60 [votes]…”
JOURNALIST: “So you would be on board with the bump stocks and… high capacity mags.”
MCCASKILL: “Of course! Of course!”
Senator McCaskill’s campaign ads are deceptive, according to the undercover video. Rob Mills, a worker on the campaign, said that is “…because she has a bunch of Republican voters.”
Another worker, Carson Pope, added that “…a semi-automatic rifle ban is more so what she would support.”
According to Mills, Senator McCaskill conceals her gun control agenda because it can “…hurt her ability to get elected.”
MILLS: “But she doesn’t openly go out and support groups like ‘Mom’s Demand Action’ or just like other groups that are related to that. Because that could hurt, her ability to get elected. Because people like see that and they’re like well I don’t want to support her even though they stand for the same policies…”
MILLS: “She’s worked out stuff with Mom’s Demand Action to make sure that she can support their goals without supporting the organization openly. And you know, Mom’s Demand Action does the exact same thing. Like a lot of our volunteers are actually from there. She’s really good about strategy and making sure she has a goal and can get there.”
Workers also said she’s ‘pro-DACA’ and against the wall.
Nicolas Starost explained Obama won’t campaign for Senator McCaskill in Missouri, although they are aligned on every issue, because she needs to distance herself from the Democratic party.
STAROST: “Because of how like, cause he’s a very liberal candidate. And like… Claire distancing herself from the party is gonna help her win more votes than it will saying like: “Oh here’s Obama, the former President of the United States, to now speak on my behalf.” Which is unfortunate because I love Obama to pieces, and I’d love to see him come here.”
JOURNALIST: “And they essentially have the same views on everything?”
STAROST: “Yeah. People just can’t know that.”
Glen Winfrey explained plans for impeachment.
JOURNALIST: “So, here’s the real question, Claire holds off on impeachment to get the moderate. What do we tell the moderates when we drop the impeachment hammer afterward?”
WINFREY: “Get over it. It was a national security question. That information was confidential, and she did her duty by not revealing the information until afterward.”
