James O’Keefe strikes again!
Project Veritas has been focusing on the midterms by targeting Democrat candidates with its new series dubbed ‘Secrets and Lies.’
On Monday evening, Project Veritas released an undercover video of endangered Missouri Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill admitting to being deceptive about her stance on firearms and immigration policies.
Claire McCaskill was not happy about O’Keefe’s undercover sting and responded Tuesday evening by blaming her opponent, Josh Hawley.
Tuesday evening, Project Veritas released part two of his undercover sting on McCaskill’s campaign.
- Campaign Staff: Planned Parenthood Doesn’t Directly “donate to Claire because they don’t want to ostracize pro-life Democrats in Missouri”
- McCaskill Staff Confirms Planned Parenthood Still Contributes: “They put it through different organizations.”
- Senator McCaskill Will “100%” Support Abortion, Is “very pro-choice” But Doesn’t Want to Appear “too far left to get the moderate voters.”

Via Project Veritas:
Planned Parenthood Making Indirect Contributions?
Campaign staffers working for Senator McCaskill explain how Planned Parenthood contributes to her campaign indirectly. Nicholas Starost, who works on Senator McCaskill’s campaign, alleges that Planned Parenthood does not outwardly support the campaign to avoid ostracizing moderate voters:
STAROST: “… Planned Parenthood will never donate money to Claire [McCaskill] even though she’s very pro-choice. because they don’t want to ostracize those pro-life democrats that might not vote for her, if there’s Planned Parenthood funding her.”
JOURNALIST: “So, they just, they just funnel it through Emily’s List?”
STAROST: “Probably. They go through other means to get us that money.”
Starost continued, saying Planned Parenthood “…put[s] it through like different organizations.” He added that most voters would not figure out this source of McCaskill’s campaign funds:
STAROST: “Unless they go like deep, deep, deep down into a campaign, like finance. Which most people just do not.”
When asked if the intent of the scheme was to get contributions without disclosing Planned Parenthood’s name specifically, Starost says, “Yup… It’s f***ing beautiful… It’s great when it works for us and not against us.”
