Gillum Campaign Admits They Have to Lie About Who They Are, ‘Florida's a F*cked Up Cracker State’
Project Veritas has been focusing on the midterms by targeting Democrat candidates with its new series dubbed ‘Secrets and Lies.’
On Wednesday evening, O’Keefe released an undercover video of Democrat Gov. candidate Andrew Gillum’s campaign staffers admitting they have to lie to voters in order to win. Democrat Andrew Gillum's currently running against Republican Ron DeSantis in Florida’s Governor race.
Florida's a "f*cked up cracker state," and "you have to appeal to white guilt" said Gillum’s campaign staffer.
Via Project Veritas:
Gillum campaign makes promises it knows it can’t keep. Featured in this report's a campaign staffer who works on Andrew Gillum’s gubernatorial campaign. Omar Smith, who says he went to college with Gillum, reveals Gillum can't fulfill his campaign promises even if he wanted to.
When asked how Gillum would fund all the programs he says he wants to fund, Smith says Gillum "can’t," and when asked if voters are aware that Gillum can't deliver on his proposed programs, Smith says:
SMITH: "That’s not for them to know… That’s not for them to know. Remember our saying, modern day fairy tales start with ‘once I'm elected.’"
Smith explains that most of Gillum’s campaign promises could never be implemented, and that the Gillum campaign knows this:
SMITH: "So, let’s go back to Mr. Gillum’s platform, right? Raise the corporate tax in Florida from 7% to 11%. That'll never happen. Raise teacher’s pay to $50,000, that'll never happen. Give me another position. Medicare for all, that'll never happen. The reason being, the legislature that write the bills is all Republican controlled. Democratic governor, Republican legislature. So, unless the legislature writes a bill and it got voted on the floor, it can't pass."
Smith says that "the rules in Florida are f***ed up" and that Florida's a "cracker state," explaining that the Florida legislature has to become racially black for Gillum’s agenda to advance.
"Whip up" the poor into a "frenzy in order for them to vote."
Smith says that in order to get voters on board with Gillum’s fairy tale platform, the campaign must "whip" lower income individuals "into a frenzy."
SMITH: "You whip ’em up. The poor, the middle income. You have to whip them up into a frenzy in order for them to vote. Once Gillum's in, in another 2 years, other Republican Senators and Legislators will be on the ballot. So, you have to whip up the Andrew Gillum voters again in those counties to vote out the Republican to get a Democratic Legislature in order for his (Gillum) will to be executed."
Smith adds that because not all Democratic voters are the same, that the Gillum campaign needs to appeal to "white guilt" to turn out the vote:
SMITH: "You have to appeal to white guilt… [be]cause that’s what it is."
"What we found in the Gillum campaign was just what we found in Missouri, Tennessee and Arizona, a candidate lying to the voters he needs to win the election," James O’Keefe said.
