UPDATE: (10/15) A FOX Nashville investigation has revealed that Mark Brown, Tennessee Democratic spokesperson lied when attacking the undercover report.
(Tennessee) Speaking to News Channel 11, US Senate candidate Phil Bredesen responded to an undercover report published earlier this week showing staffers from his campaign offices explain his recent statement in support of then-Judge Brett Kavanaugh was plainly a “political move” in order to court “moderate” voters.
Said Bredesen in the News Channel 11 report:
“I think it’s kind of a reprehensible way to treat young people…”
“There was somebody who came in sort of posing as a senior volunteer, all grown-up, from the other campaign, and basically got these young people talking in that fashion.”
“I would have been a yes with all the information I had at the time to make that decision.”
James O’Keefe, founder of Project Veritas Action Fund said in response:
“The Bredesen campaign is officially on defense. Thanks to the undercover report, Tennesseans can see right through Bredesen’s remarks, which amount to just another empty ‘political move,’ designed to save face.”
Also in the report, a spokesperson for US Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn’s campaign said:
“… now they’re seeing ‘Phony Phil’ at his worst. This is exactly the kind of ‘say whatever to get elected’ politics Tennesseans hate…”
