Senator Claire McCaskill has ALMOST had a worse week than Elizabeth Warren … almost. What with Project Veritas exposing her to be a fraud who deliberately tells people what they want to hear so they’ll vote for her (predominantly moderate Republicans) it’s been a tough few days for Claire.
And, of course, as they did with Elizabeth Warren, the media is circling the wagons and making Project Veritas the bad guy here, sort of like they attacked the Cherokee Nation.
Wow. A Project Veritas "employee" who posed as an intern for the McCaskill campaign and recorded her also had access to voter info, campaign says https://t.co/Vm6ccgSriw

Project Veritas, a conservative activist group run by James O’Keefe, released surreptitiously-recorded videos of McCaskill and her campaign this week as part of series of undercover videos meant to damage Democratic candidates ahead of next month’s mid-term election. McCaskill’s re-election fight with Hawley could decide control of the U.S. Senate.
An employee of Project Veritas approached McCaskill’s campaign in May and expressed an interest in volunteering and interning on the campaign, according to an affidavit from McCaskill’s Columbia field director Luke Tonant.
As an intern, the Project Veritas employee, who Tonant knew as “Adam Thomson,” had access to the campaign’s voter information database for a total of 20 hours between May and July, according to the affidavit.
‘Surreptitiously-recorded videos.’ heh
Your publication called us irrelevant a year ago and now that you’re losing the narrative you’re trying to do damage control after media critical mass. If that doesn’t work, jail us. You people are a disgrace and an affront to what journalism ought to be. https://t.co/RLNyr6VIan

Something like that.
Per her bio, Natasha Bertrand is a staff writer for The Atlantic as well as an ‘MSNBC contributor’. We’re not sure we’d admit the second piece but hey, what do we know?
The Atlantic, lol! That magazine was relevant back in the 90s- the 1890s.

@NatashaBertrand Democrats Create Mobs. Republicans Create Jobs.

That seems to be a reoccurring theme going into the midterms.
It’s lonely in the honesty business.

I am sure booth candidates have access to voters rolls. These rolls are not a secret and are ready available to any candidate willing to pay.

Hey man, anything to discredit Project Veritas and help the Democrat who in this case is Claire McCaskill.
It’s the ‘media’s way’.
