In this Project Veritas video Democrat operative and pollster Celinda Lake encourages union leaders to lie to voters on specific issues because the Democrats are behind the Republicans and are “in trouble.”

“Democrats are behind the Republicans 11 points on the economy right now. We are 7 points behind the Republicans on jobs. We’ve never won a presidential election, never in the history since we’ve done polling data, that we weren’t even on that. We are in trouble!”

Lake is the President of Lake Research. She was a general consultant for Bill Clinton, and has since worked with the DNC, AFL-CIO, Planned Parenthood, Joe Biden, and Nancy Pelosi.
