Campaign staffers for Tennessee Democrat Senate nominee Phil Bredesen say he lied on Friday when he released a statement saying he would have voted “yes” to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, according to a new undercover video released by Project Veritas Action on Wednesday night.
Bredesen campaign field organizer Maria Amalla was captured on video by a female journalist sent undercover into one of the Bredesen campaign’s Nashville offices describing Bredesen’s statement on Friday as “a political move” that was necessary because “he’s trying to make up points.”
The undercover journalist told another person, identified in the Project Veritas video as Will Stewart, Phil Bredesen Campaign: “I was so confused because I just can’t believe he would actually vote yes [to confirm Kavanaugh.]”
“He wouldn’t. He’s just saying he would,” Stewart said in response.
Bredesen trails Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN-07), the Republican nominee, by eight points in a CBS Poll released on Sunday.
Another exchange between the undercover journalist and a person identified as James Miller, Voter Protection, Bredesen Campaign, was equally illuminating.
“Because, I mean he [Phil Bredesen] wouldn’t really [vote to confirm Kavanaugh], right?” the journalist asked Miller.
“I don’t think so. Um, and I think it’s not reassuring, but it’s something that I think gives me . . . The feeling is that of reassurance, but it’s certainly not reassuring. I think much like Doug Jones, or somebody,” Miller answered.
