To get re-elected in Missouri, Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill has to be careful of appearing as liberal as she is. For example, the campaign keeps her pro-abortion record pretty quiet, and they don’t take much money directly from Planned Parenthood. That doesn’t mean, though, that they aren’t getting Planned Parenthood money funneled to them through other channels. James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas sent an undercover journalist into the campaign, where staffer Nicholas Starost said it was “F-ing beautiful” how this is done.

Journalist: What were you telling me last night about Planned Parenthood?
Starost: How they never- How they don’t donate to Claire because they don’t want to ostracize pro-life voters in Missouri.
Journalist: But they still somehow get us money?
Starost: They put it through, like, different organizations.
Journalist: Keep the Planned Parenthood name off the thing, but we still get the dough?
Starost: Yup. I love that stuff, man. It’s f-ing beautiful.
Currently, McCaskill’s race against Republican Josh Hawley is neck-in-neck, so she cannot afford to alienate voters.
