Kentucky Senate Race 2014
In 2014, James O’Keefe and Project Veritas went undercover in the Kentucky Senate race between Allison Lundergan Grimes and Mitch McConnell. While undercover O’Keefe and Veritas journalists spoke with multiple campaign workers and former statewide elected officials who stated that Alison Grimes was lying about her support for the coal industry. Investigators secretly recorded video at Grimes’s fundraising event attended by Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, real estate tycoon Niko Elmaleh, and New York Knicks owner James Dolan at a swanky NY restaurant. These key donors repeated the claims of campaign workers, saying Grimes will “f***” coal workers the moment she’s elected.

Kentucky U.S. Senate candidate Alison Grimes has vehemently and repeatedly claimed to oppose President Obama’s coal and environmental policies in what has become an increasingly significant campaign issue. A team of investigative journalists, led by Project Veritas Action’s founder James O’Keefe, went undercover in multiple Grimes campaign offices to determine if her opposition to the core principles of her own political party is genuine or an intentional deception.
