James O’Keefe (the guy who outed Acorn) now goes after voter fraud, and it’s about time someone got this on video, especially now with legal action taking place to attempt to stop states who try to implement requirements that voters provide identification to prove they are who they claim to be before getting their hands on a ballot.
Naturally anyone attempting to impede leftists from their goals of rigging elections in their favor would bring an angry response, and while the leftists are up in arms over O’Keefe’s latest exposé, wanting his head on a platter, the state GOP is up in arms for a different reason;
New Hampshire House Speaker William O’Brien, (R-Mont Vernon) called the video “a shocking exclamation point on the need for immediate reform to New Hampshire’s election laws to ensure that voter fraud does not taint the rights of our citizens to have their votes counted in an honest, responsible way and impact our state.”
New Hampshire Governor John Lynch vetoed legislation passed in 2011 requiring photo ID at the polls. Governor Lynch had stated in his veto message that there was “no voter fraud problem in New Hampshire.”
O’Brien begged to differ. He said the House will pass legislation again this year. “Hopefully, this video will shame the Governor into signing it,” O’Brien remarked
If you haven’t seen the video;
On January 10th, Project Veritas reporters walked into New Hampshire Polling Locations during the Presidential Primaries, saying dead people’s names. We stated the name of a dead person we got from the NH obituaries. The names of the deceased were both Registered Republican and Democrats And in almost every case, saying a dead person’s name, we were handed a ballot to cast a vote. We used no misrepresentation and no false pretenses. in fact, in almost every case, we insisted we show ID and they insisted that we vote without showing ID. Thanks to DailyCaller.com for breaking story.
More on the fallout from leftist groups and their attacks against O’Keefe;
A coalition of liberal groups including People For the American Way, Daily Kos and Granite State Progress on Thursday plan to submit more than 100,000 petitions to New Hampshire’s attorney general asking him to investigate O’Keefe for the video.
In response, O’Keefe told TheDC that he is calling on his allies and conservative groups that are pleased with what his videos exposed to express support for his work to politicians and law enforcement in New Hampshire.
He also dismissed the press who focused stories in the aftermath of his New Hampshire video on whether he broke the law with his sting operation, and not on the issue of how easy it is for someone to commit voter fraud.
In one case, he’s taking a news outlet to court. On Monday, O’Keefe said he filed a lawsuit against the New Jersey Star-Ledger for libeling him.
“It’s unbelievable,” he said.
Voter ID laws should be implemented state-by-state until only people who can prove they are who they claim to be can vote. Not dead people, not invented people, but actual legal citizens.
Imagine that? The left can’t, and in their attacks they are accusing O’Keefe of “voter fraud” in attempting to show how easy a crime it has been for the left to commit. The left, as usual, wants somebody, anybody, to simply shoot the messenger.
O’Keefe’s latest attempt to show how easy it is to fake the vote is to head to Minnesota and register “Tebow and Brady” to vote in that state. While I won’t link to the goon squads going after O’Keefe for that, they aren’t hard to find.
