Project Veritas (PV) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded by James O'Keefe. They promote disinformation through the use of deceptively-edited videos and entrapment. The right-wingosphere then uses this disinformation to undermine political support for organizations and individuals they oppose.

In other words: PV lies about things in order to destroy them.
