As James O’Keefe, Head of Project Veritas, notes: “This seems to be becoming a pattern with the Bernie Sanders campaign.”

Georgia Parke, the Sanders campaign’s Deputy Digital Communications Director, temporarily locked down her Twitter account last week after Project Veritas released an undercover video of another South Carolina field organizer for the Sanders campaign, Martin Weissgerber, calling for violence.

And earlier this month, 11 other Sanders campaign staffers locked their Twitter accounts after an undercover video released by Project Veritas showed an Iowa field organizer for the Sanders campaign, Kyle Jurek, endorsing violence.

The mass lockdowns of these Sanders campaign Twitter accounts come days before the 2020 Iowa Democratic caucuses on February 3.

Data has shown that this Project Veritas exposé on the Sanders campaign has dominated social media interactions.

The first video in the series became the biggest story about Sanders in the week it was released and eclipsed stories about the disputes between Sanders and presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren over whether he said a women can’t win the US presidency.

Despite the mass appetite for the story on social media and this reportedly being the first presidential campaign where multiple staffers have shut down their Twitter accounts, legacy media outlets have largely ignored the story.
