A few days ago I authored a post about the insanity of the Department of Justice and the NAACP as they prepared to bring suit against South Carolina in protest of recent voter i.d. laws enacted there. South Carolina officials feel requiring citizens to present identification at the polls would cut down on voter fraud. The DOJ and NAACP felt it was a direct attack on minorities whom, as we know, are wandering around all over this fair land without a clue who they are. They even went so far as to approach the United Nations to send officials to monitor our elections and root out racism at the polls. Of course we on the right understand that this is nothing more than a ploy to continue to allow Democrats to perpetrate voter fraud in order to win elections. Their base is unions, dead people and illegal aliens. How can a ghost vote if they have to present i.d. first? Its bad business for Democrats. The argument against voter i.d. reaches into the same tired, old racist bag of tricks, and often includes the defense that fraud like this almost never happens. It’s a right-wing nutjob fantasy.
Enter James O’keefe and his Project Veritas. You may remember Mr. O’Keefe as the worst pimp ever (seriously, they bought that get-up?) who exposed Planned Parenthood and ACORN corruption. This time O’Keefe and his partners infiltrate the New Hampshire primary election process and use the names of deceased voters to procure ballots at dozens of voting locations across the state on primary Tuesday. The goal was to prove the ease with which one could defraud a voting system which requires no idea. With the exception of one astute poll volunteer who knew the deceased, O’Keefe and crew were given ballots at every location. One volunteer tried to explain that voter fraud would not be an issue because once a person voted, their name would be crossed off the list and no one could vote under that name again…in that location anyway. Project Veritas operatives approached dozens of seperate polls using the same names of deceased voters and were given a ballot every time. Watch the video here. Project Veritas also posts full, unedited video at their site. O’Keefe has been accused in the past of “selective editing”. It seems hard to “edit” footage into falsly showing an ACORN worker conspiring to cover up child prostitution, but whatever. O’Keefe has his bases covered. Every video is edited to some extent for time purposes, but if you are the suspicious type you can watch it all at the website.
If it was so incredibly simple to defraud the voter system in New Hampshire, does it not stand to reason that other states without i.d. laws and even larger populations may have an even bigger issue with fraud? Perhaps Ben Jealous and the NAACP should take some of this footage to the U.N. as well. If they are indeed so worried about the state of free and fair elections in the FREEST and FAIREST nation on earth, they should surely want the U.N. election monitors to be aware of this outrageous fraud.
Kudos to O’Keefe and crew for their work here. This should be shared everywhere, and with every Democrat who swears requiring identification to vote is not only racist, but provides no help in preventing fraud. We know their real reasons behind blocking voter i.d. laws – as they say in New Hampshire: live free or die. Either way, Democrats will take your vote(s).
