Wisconsin liberal groups tell attorney general they believe they were targeted by undercover group Project Veritas - 2020-09-16
MADISON - Half a dozen liberal groups in Wisconsin say they were deceived by a longtime member of the conservative group Project Veritas this summer in an apparent attempt to get damaging footage of Democrats in a battleground state.
Black Leaders Organizing for Communities, Voces de la Frontera and others on Friday asked Democratic Attorney General Josh Kaul to investigate the matter, according to a letter the groups provided to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Kaul has not said what he will do.
Project Veritas for years has misrepresented itself to get an inside look at how Democratic campaigns and liberal groups operate in Wisconsin and around the country. Its secretly recorded videos have hurt some entities, but some of the group's claims about improprieties have fizzled when independently investigated.
