So a undercover sting of Claire McCaskill got her on tape saying she supports an assault weapons ban.
McCaskill *voted for the assault weapons ban* in 2013.

Who the godsdamned hell is supporting James O’Keefe III’s vanity project, anyway? I read somewhere that he had a trust fund, but haven’t been able to find verification. Of course there’s never a shortage of willing donors for RWNJ ratfvckers, but it would be nice to have receipts…

Good for McCaskill! Some pundit said she was ‘fortunate in her enemies’, but looks to me like she makes her own luck:

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.
The Project Veritas employee continued to volunteer for the campaign after resigning his internship in July and even attended McCaskill’s primary election night party, where he obtained the video of McCaskill speaking about her support for gun control measures.
The affidavit is part of a 115-page complaint McCaskill’s attorney filed with Hawley’s office Thursday in an effort to pressure the Republican attorney general and McCaskill’s opponent to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate whether Project Veritas violated Missouri law in the course of obtaining the videos…
