Project Veritas Action published undercover footage of a Utah congressional campaign staffer discussing the multiple ways the campaign tries to “manipulate” voters while hiding not only the candidate, but also the candidate’s true intentions.
In the footage, Field Director, Daniel Stephens for U.S. Representative, John Curtis, is seen discussing the switch Curtis made from Democrat to Republican in 2006 saying that Curtis did so “to be able to run.” Stephens added, “he [Curtis] thought that it was ineffective to be a Democrat in Utah Valley.”
Here are some of the highlights from today’s video:
- Project Veritas Action published video of Field Director, Daniel Stephens, who works for U.S. Representative, John Curtis (R-Utah). Stephens appears in undercover footage talking about Curtis’ campaign strategy to “manipulate” voters with a litany of hidden motives and agendas, including lack of support for Utah’s abortion trigger law.
- Rep. John Curtis’ Field Director, Daniel Stephens, on Abortion Trigger Laws: “Here in Utah it means abortion is completely illegal. Which is fascinating…I never thought that Governor Cox would get into something so restrictive. I don’t think it solves any problems. I think you’re going to run into a lot more unhealthy, you know, marginalized communities that get, you know, unproductive care… he [Curtis] does not like the trigger laws.”
- Discussing Representative Curtis’ switch from Democrat to Republican in 2006, Curtis’ second time changing parties, Stephens said, “I think he switched that year to be able to run” adding, “he [Curtis] thought that it was ineffective to be a Democrat in Utah Valley or Utah County.”
- Stephens also made questionable comments about misrepresenting Curtis’ views to voters saying, “it might not be the truth, right?” before saying voters were, “not willing to do the research.”

When reached for comment, the manager of Rep. Curtis’ re-election campaign, Adrielle Herring, offered an official comment saying, “Statements made by someone who is not authorized to speak for the Congressman are not relevant.”
When pressed on specifics, Herring replied “no” to a litany of questions about whether statements made by Stephens were true and laughed about a question regarding Stephens’ comments about hiding from voters.
