BREAKING: Campaign Staffer for Sen. Lisa Murkowski Describes ‘Dark Money’ in Alaska Politics ... ‘Dark Money Would be Bad for Lisa if the Other Campaigns Start Highlighting It’ ... Voters ‘Don't Look for This Stuff’

  • Project Veritas Action has published a new undercover video inside Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s campaign that shows a staff member revealing how “dark money” messaging was used to promote Ballot Measure 2, but it would be bad for Murkowski if Alaskans knew the real intent behind that messaging.

  • Josiah Nash, who works as the campaign’s interior coordinator is seen on the recordings saying it would be “bad” for “Lisa if the other campaigns start highlighting it [dark money messaging].”

  • Nash also discussed how Ballot Measure 2 [which Project Veritas Action revealed was passed with the assistance of Murkowski loyalists with her re-election in mind] was passed with strategic messaging.  “We messaged for ‘dirty money’ and we knew that that was something that specifically resonated with Alaska,” Nash says in the videos. “And we could say - yeah, this goes in with voting reform and so, if people accepted that enough then the vote can pass,” he adds.

  • Nash: “Most people, you know, aren’t into politics as probably as much as we are, and so they don’t look for this stuff.  Where it would be an issue is if the MAGA people and Kelly Tshibaka started [highlighting this] as a major part of their campaign.”

  • Emma Ashlock, the same Campaign Coordinator for Lisa Murkowski’s campaign who revealed the links between Murkowski and those pushing the Ranked Choice Voting System, is also featured in these new recordings discussing a Political Action Committee “

    which is kind of an outside funding source” that supports Senator Murkowski.

[ANCHORAGE, ALASKA – Aug. 11, 2022] Project Veritas Action released a new video today in the aftermath of Wednesday’s story which exposed Senator Lisa Murkowski’s connection to Ballot Measure 2 [Ranked-Choice Voting].

In the new video, undercover recordings show a staff member for Senator Lisa Murkowski’s re-election campaign revealing how “dark money” messaging was used to promote Ballot Measure 2 and how it would be “bad” for “Lisa if the other campaigns start highlighting it.”

“We messaged for ‘dirty money’ and we knew that that was something that specifically resonated with Alaska,” Nash says in the videos. “And we could say - yeah, this goes in with voting reform and so, if people accepted that enough then the vote can pass,” he adds.

Nash added that he does not “think people have enough time to go and look through all the other things or have any interest,” in an apparent reference to Alaskan voters.

Also noteworthy was Nash’s commentary that “most people, you know, aren’t into politics as probably as much as we are, and so they don’t look for this stuff. Where it would be an issue is if the MAGA people and Kelly Tshibaka started [highlighting this] as a major part of their campaign.”

Emma Ashlock, the same Campaign Coordinator for Lisa Murkowski’s campaign who revealed the links between Murkowski and those pushing the Ranked Choice Voting System is also featured in these new recordings discussing a Political Action Committee “which is kind of an outside funding source” that supports Senator Murkowski.

The Murkowski for Senate campaign has not yet responded to a request for a comment this week.
