    What is this? Chicago? Naw, in Chicago they don't get questioned for doing this.

It's his Justice Department and his TSA. When those poor blacks from South Carolina want to get on the airplane, the TSA gets to block their travel. Show me how this isn't true. You can't have it both ways.
    What are you talking about? First of all, poor black people aren't the only ones affected by ID laws. Second, the price of an airplane ticket is probably going to disqualify a poor person before not having an ID does. Third, flying is not a fundamental right. Fourth, the public interest in safety is implicated to a much greater degree in the case of individuals hijacking airplanes, which has happened dozens of times throughout history, than it is by a fraudulent election, which has only happened once and was achieved by Republican manipulation of the results, not by voter fraud. Fifth, the TSA can waive the ID requirement if it is satisfied you are not a threat (I know, because they waived it for me once when I forgot my photo ID). Sixth, the 9th Circuit has held that you can still fly provided you agree to undergo more stringent screening. All of which goes to demonstrate that the situations are completely different.

    in highlighting the non-problem of voter fraud in New Hampshire and elsewhere, O’Keefe’s agents appear to have committed voter fraud themselves. Section 659:34 of the New Hampshire code defines voter fraud as when a person (highlights are ours):


    (a) When registering to vote; when obtaining an official ballot; or when casting a vote by official ballot, makes a false material statement regarding his or her qualifications as a voter to an election officer or submits a voter registration form, and election day registration affidavit, a qualified voter affidavit, a domicile affidavit, or an absentee registration affidavit containing false material information regarding his or her qualifications as a voter;

    (b) Votes more than once for any office or measure;
    (c) Applies for a ballot in a name other than his or her own;
    (d) Applies for a ballot in his or her own name after he or she has voted once;
    (e) Votes for any office or measure at an election if such person is not qualified to vote as provided in RSA 654; or
    (f) Gives a false name or answer if under examination as to his or her qualifications as a voter before the supervisors of the checklist or moderator.

    ...

    In addition, O’Keefe’s group may have run afoul of New Hampshire’s law against hidden recording devices. Granite State law requires both parties to consent when recording devices are used, a fact that even O’Keefe’s own website notes. However, the video gives no indication that poll workers were aware they were being filmed.

    No, they weren't. But thanks for showing you are less honest then you claim okeefe to be.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I only quoted the applicable NH law -- not ThinkProgress' spin on the story.

    Democrats cheating and perpetrating voter fraud? No, say it isn't so.

    ROFLMAO!
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    It should be simple enough to correct. When the state issues the certificate of death, it should trigger the revocation of all state documents, including but not limited to voter registration, and it should also notify the federal government to do the same.

    But because its just too damn simple, they will never do it.

    I'm more disturbed at his actions than the fact that states don't get everything 100% when it comes to cross references death-reports with voter-registration. Only 900 . . . doesn't seem quite so bad, honestly.

    Was this even legal - can you pretend to be someone (dead or alive) for any reason at all like this? Sounds like a federal offense to me.
    A 900 vote margin can be enough to tip the vote. Romney only won the Iowa caucus by 8 votes, and IIRC, Florida and New Mexico have both had very, very close popular-vote counts in recent elections. Since electoral votes are almost univserally given at 100% to which ever candidate wins the state's popular vote, it's imperative that we don't have to come out later and say that a close election might have been called incorrectly.

    Pretending to be somebody you aren't in order to case a vote is voter fraud. Yeah, the dude in the video committed a crime. But he didn't cast all 900 of those fake ballots, so who else was doing the same thing without trying to prove a point?
