    O'Keefe Voter Fraud Investigation: Young Man Offered Holder's Ballot

    U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has declared that there is no proof that in-person voter fraud is a problem. He's about to see proof that even he can't deny.
    In a new video provided to Breitbart.com, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas demonstrates why Holder should stop attacking voter ID laws--by walking into Holder’s voting precinct and showing the world that anyone can obtain Eric Holder’s primary ballot. Literally.
    The video shows a young man entering a Washington, DC polling place at 3401 Nebraska Avenue, NW, on primary day of this year--April 3, 2012--and giving Holder’s name and address. The poll worker promptly offers the young man Holder’s ballot to vote. The young man then suggests that he should show his ID; the poll worker, in compliance with DC law, states: “You don’t need it. It’s all right. As long as you’re in here, you’re on our list, and that’s who you say you are, you’re okay.”
    The young man replies: “I would feel more comfortable if I just had my ID. Is it alright if I go get it?" The poll worker agrees.

    "I’ll be back Faster than you can say Furious,” the young man jokes on his way out, in a reference to the Fast and Furious gunwalking scandal that has plagued Holder’s Department of Justice.

    Holder has maintained that voter fraud is not a major problem in the United States, and that voter ID would not curb voter fraud in any case.
    As Project Veritas has proven, voter fraud is easy and simple--and may be increasingly common in the absence of voter ID laws.
    Project Veritas has already shown how dead people can vote in New Hampshire, prompting the state senate to pass a voter ID law; they’ve also shown people can use celebrity names like Tim Tebow and Tom Brady to vote in Minnesota, prompting the state legislature to put voter ID on the ballot as a constitutional amendment.
    I think approaching the voter fraud problem from a standpoint of how much is caught is the current wisdom standard for asking why we need it. Should the standard be how much potential is there for abuse? How easy is it to use a voter's identity once its on the rolls, if the abuser knows they either wont be voting or the registration is false in itself?

    This seems to show its pretty easy.

    O'Keefe has been thoroughly discredited. Nothing he offers should ever be taken seriously.

    This is the important stuff. We can’t get lost in discrimination. We can’t get lost in B.S. We can’t get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Re: O'Keefe Voter Fraud Investigation: Young Man Offered Holder's Ballot

    Well, first off, you'll have to forgive me for not taking an O'Keefe video hosted by breitbart.com at face value, seeing as how that exact pairing has more than one instance of proven lies via edited footage.

    Next, yes, people probably can get away with doing this. That doesn't mean it's something that happens regularly. The thing with voter fraud is that there's very little to gain and the penalties are stiff if you get caught.

    The more pressing question is how many fraudulent votes actually get cast, and get cast in a manner that voter ID's would have prevented.

    Of course. When we have those pillars of ethical government to guide us, such as Obammy and Holdup, just who does O'Keefe think he is, somebody else in a polling place !!

    No voter fraud problems. Move along

    Are you really surprised that people don't immediately accept footage from someone with a proven history of deceptively editing footage? I mean, really?

    Why not include the link the words came from, why not include a link to the video, why not show that the poll worker says to the man "sign your name here" before he abruptly vacated the premisses?

    The man is clearly a fraud who I liken to a bank robber who would hand the teller a note that reads he wants all the money and then he proceeds to walk out without any money and then goes on to say look how easy banks are to rob.

    The man never signed the form and never got to vote on Erics ballot, sort of looks like he came close to committing a fraudulent act but never actually did.

    Maybe he should sign the form and cast the ballot next time, if he wants to prove anything significant.

    I would bet Eric signature is on file for comparison there and if it wasn't, there is probably a rule that says if a voter doesn't have a signature already on file then they need to show ID of sorts.

    Edit: this appears to be the video here:

    Why not? Because it would immediately prove, once again, what a charlatan O'Keefe is.

    Nicely done UTM, as always.

    Use what judgement you have. If he signs, a felony has now been committed. Are you suggesting that the worker was going to analyze the signature ?

    Here in Florida folks, we show ID first. Before we get a ballot. Before we sign. Admittedly, I do not know the entire process for if I do not have ID. I do know that I get a ballot that is then more likely to be checked afterwards. No one is disenfranchised libs.

    One needs to show ID for so many other basic interactions in society. The objections of the Democrats to all this is so easy to see. Bogus.
