O'Keefe undercover video nails Tennessee Democrat's Senate campaign for lying about Kavanaugh support

The latest sting video from journalist James O'Keefe's Project Veritas exposes Tennessee Democratic candidate Phil Bredesen's dishonest campaign for U.S. Senate, indicating that he lied about his support for Justice Brett Kavanaugh to win the election.

Captured on video by an undercover reporter, a staffer for Bredesen's campaign explained that the candidate's public support for Kavanaugh was a "political move" to boost his support with some moderate Republicans.

"He thinks that, like, we’re down like half a point right now. It’s, like, really close and we’re losing by a point or two. So he thinks that if, like, by saying this he’s appealing to more moderate Republicans and he’ll get more of them to vote for us," said Maria Amalla, a field organizer for Bredesen's campaign.

"Phil Bredesen and his campaign have been shown to lie to Tennesseans, saying one thing to persuade voters on the campaign trail but clearly planning to do something entirely different should he get into office," O'Keefe said in a statement.
