Project Veritas, a prominent right-wing investigative journalism group, released stunning video evidence showing high-level staffers in Republican U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski’s office admitting the Alaskan Senator was secretly supportive of Ranked Choice Voting (RCV).
In 2020, the state of Alaska approved RCV, which will be utilized in this election cycle, and will greatly help pro-Trump impeachment RINO Sen. Murkowski’s re-election chances.
Project Veritas exposed Murkowski’s campaign staffers discussing how ranked choice voting will secure a Murkowski victory and was pushed through the state legislature in 2020 to make sure she wins this election.
“They say the race is gonna come down to Kelly Tshibaka and Senator Murkowski. So, anyone who votes for Pat Chesbro first and ranks Senator Murkowski second that vote is gonna become a vote for Senator Murkowski,” explained Emma Ashlock, the campaign coordinator.
Ashlock added that RCV advocates pushed this bizarre voting protocol to help moderates like Murkowski get re-elected. “While we were working on Ballot Measure 2 and voting for Ballot Measure 2, we had Senator Murkowski in mind the whole time.”

Murkowski’s Campaign Interior Coordinator, Josh Nash, reaffirmed that Murkowski purposefully “stayed quiet” about her support of the measures.
“She stayed quiet and honestly it was probably best she stayed quiet on that,” Nash stated.
The staffer explained how RCV was created to help Murkowski, who is facing a Trump-endorsed opponent:
“Because in Alaska, overall it [ranked choice voting] helps if you’re more progressive cause it selects more moderate candidates. And between you and me, Ballot Measure 2 was actually created — I think it was created for two reasons. Number one, it was created because there were people in this state who wanted to see a better system. But they also wanted Lisa to get re-elected. The big thing that’s gonna get more progressives elected — it was the two other portions: the ranked choice voting and the open primaries”
Nash added that Murkowski coordinates her politics and image in a coordinated scheme to get more votes through the new voting system. He said the campaign is walking on a “fine line” in their messaging “to try to get her elected amongst more moderate voters.”
Ashlock echoed Nash’s point, adding, “every single Pat Chesbro voter who ranks Senator Murkowski second, we get their votes. If we can get people to do that, then we have it in the bag.”
The Murkowski election will be Tuesday, August 16th.
