Project Veritas Video: DNC Staffer Assists Double Voting In Support of Obama – More Sting Videos to Come?

Undercover reporters for James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas asked OFA (Organizing for America) staffers for advice on double voting. In each circumstance the staffers were actively complicit in the illegal implications of voting twice.

Part one:

Houston, TX 77004

Reporter: And there’s no way they’d be able to cross reference the ballots?
Obama Campaign: If you voted twice?
Reporter: Yeah.
Obama Campaign: I don’t know this. That’s not my expertise.

Reporter: Yea I don’t want to get in any trouble but like I said if no one’s gonna know
Reporter: I don’t have a problem with it.
Reporter: Yea, so anyway – But –
Obama Campaign: Oh my God this is so funny. It’s cool though!

Reporter: But I was gonna see as far as all the registering for Florida –
Obama Campaign: Mhm
Reporter: Where do I get the forms to do that?
Reporter: Or not registering but voting in Florida for the absentee –
Obama Campaign: So what you’ll have to do is you’re going to call in to Florida.
Reporter: Okay.
Obama Campaign: And call – Let me see.
Obama Campaign: Are you going to do what I think you are going to do?
Reporter: Well I mean if no one’s gonna know –
Obama Campaign: Laughter
Obama Campaign: You’re so hilarious!

Obama Campaign: Come up with like – If anyone checks say “I don’t know”.

Part two:

Part two shows  more OFA workers actually encouraging voters to get registered in multiple states.

Unamused, House Judiciary Chairman, Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas  said that the Obama campaign staffers facilitating voter fraud should be fired immediately.

“It is an outrage that Obama campaign staffers appear to be encouraging voters to engage in voter fraud,” Smith said in a statement. “But even more outrageous is that this is happening at the same time that the Obama administration is blocking state laws enacted to prevent voter fraud. Several states, including Texas, enacted commonsense voter ID laws that require voters to show a valid form of identification before they vote. But the Obama administration has challenged these laws in court, preventing them from being implemented before the November elections.”

So far team Obama is silent.

Ben LaBolt, Obama’s campaign spokesman, hasn’t answered questions on the behavior Caballero and other campaign staffers and volunteers exhibited in the videos.

Department of Justice spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler hasn’t answered either, on whether Attorney General Eric Holder plans to do anything about the potentially illegal behavior on display in the video, taken by conservative activist James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas.

They think if they ignore the story, it will go away – they’re right of course.

Former DOJ Attorney, J Christian Adams offers his  perspective:

Obama campaign attorney Robert Bauer should be emailing memos to every paid staffer detailing 42 USC 1973i(e) and 42 USC § 1973gg–10(2). The former federal law makes it illegal to vote twice. The latter law prohibits fraudulent voting in a federal election. 18 USC 2 makes it illegal to aid and abet election fraud.

The new O’Keefe video raises the question — how many other undercover videographers have penetrated the Obama campaign? O’Keefe obviously reached the heart of one operation. Who knows how many more Obama campaign offices are full of “volunteers” on the lookout for criminal behavior by other Obama campaign staffers?

O’Keefe provides a clue and taunts journalists, daring them to call this an “isolated incident.”

Make his day Media Matters.

Encouraging voter participation of marginal legality is nothing new for the Obama campaign. In 2008, they had an elaborate web portal for college students, encouraging some to register to vote where they went to school, discouraging others. The overall goal was to get students attending college in battleground states registered to vote in those states regardless of their actual domicile. If students from a battleground state went to college in a safe red or blue state, they were encouraged to keep their registration in their home battleground state.

The Obama campaign website in 2008 never told the students to cancel their original voter registration. Nor did it provide guidelines for what constituted bona fide domicile.


A final note about Stephanie Caballero. This paid Obama staffer is a radical’s radical. She was active in the Students for a Democratic Society in Houston.

We’re dealing with a ruthless, amoral Chicago machine that can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are defeated.

Keep that in mind on November 6.

COLORADO SPRINGS – Democratic operatives in Colorado are training volunteers to turn away voter-registration applicants who seem likely to back Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

The evidence is part of a video shot by an undercover reporter working with journalist James O’Keefe in Organizing for America’s Colorado Springs office on Aug. 15. Organizing America is funded by the Democratic National Committee and geared toward reelecting Barack Obama.

The video comes after left-leaning media expressed outrage when video released a few weeks ago showed a young Republican woman seeking to register only Mitt Romney voters. That YouTube piece now has a pop-up ad asking voters to support Obama.

Video: An Immigrant Explains Why He’s Voting Republican – “Freedom To Succeed”

Via Jeffrey Carter of Points and Figures: The Perspective of Immigrants:

Sometimes it helps to get the perspective of immigrants to America.

Many times I’ve heard immigrants from behind the iron curtain,  China, or Cuba share the same fear. They say they see the United States under Obama taking the same path as their home countries – the ones they came here to escape.

Thomas Peterffy grew up in socialist Hungary. Despite the fact that he could not speak English when he immigrated to the United States in 1956, Thomas fulfilled the American dream. With hard work and dedication, he started a business that today employs thousands of people. In the 1970s, Thomas bought a seat on the American Stock Exchange. He played a key role in developing the electronic trading of securities and is the founder of Interactive Brokers, an online discount brokerage firm with offices all over the world.

Video: Rep. Trey Gowdy Rails Against the Vicissitudes of Deception that Surrounded the Terrorist Attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi

Republican firebrand, Rep Trey Gowdy of SC  blasted Jay Carney and Ambassador Susan Rice for giving  “demonstrably false statements not just to us but to our fellow citizens on national television.” He voiced his desire to see Ambassador Rice come under oath to explain how she came by the intelligence that led her to make false statements to the American people.

Always a pleasure to hear this man speak:

Video: Issa’s Opening Statement “The Security Failures of Benghazi”

Via The Committee on Oversight and Reform:

Key quote from his opening statement: It was the 9/11 anniversary that caused an organization aligned with al Qaeda to attack and kill our personnel…

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee leaders have sent a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asking why requests for more protection were denied to the U.S. mission in Libya by Washington officials prior to the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack that killed U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens. The denials came after repeated attacks and security threats to U.S. personnel.…

“Based on information provided to the Committee by individuals with direct knowledge of events in Libya, the attack that claimed the ambassador’s life was the latest in a long line of attacks on Western diplomats and officials in Libya in the months leading up to September 11, 2012. It was clearly never, as Administration officials once insisted, the result of a popular protest,” the committee’s chairman, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and subcommittee chairman, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, write. “In addition, multiple U.S. federal government officials have confirmed to the Committee that, prior to the September 11 attack, the U.S. mission in Libya made repeated requests for increased security in Benghazi. The mission in Libya, however, was denied these resources by officials in Washington.”

The letter outlines 13 security threats over the six months prior to the attack.

“Put together, these events indicated a clear pattern of security threats that could only be reasonably interpreted to justify increased security for U.S. personnel and facilities in Benghazi,” the chairmen write.

The Committee indicated it intends to convene a hearing in Washington on Wednesday October 10, 2012, on the security failures that preceded the attack.

Oversight and Reform is livestreaming the hearing, here.


CHAFFETZ: Moral Imperative To Thoroughly Investigate Security Failures in Benghazi:


Former State Department Site Security Team Commander Lieutenant Colonel Andrew Wood said “we were fighting a losing battle,” adding that his team “couldn’t even keep what [the security] we had. We were not even allowed to keep what we had.”

“I told the same regional director in a telephone call in Benghazi after he contacted me when I asked for 12 agents,” Nordstrom said. “His response to that was, you’re asking for the sun, moon and the stars and my response to him — his name’s Jim — I said, ‘Jim, you know what makes — most frustrating about this assignment? It’s not the hardships, it’s not the gunfire, it’s not the threats,’” Nordstrom said. “’It’s dealing and fighting against the people, programs and personnel who are supposed to be supporting me,’ and I added it by saying, ‘For me, the Taliban is on the inside of the building.’”

Krauthammer: *Romney Won Debate on an “Avalanche of Facts”

Charles Krauthammer, appearing on The O’Reilly Factor, Tuesday night, was asked about the day’s biggest stories including a supposedly scandalous  AP photo of Romney, the GOP surge in the polls, and the full Democrat panic that has ensued since Obama’s abysmal debate performance.

By the way, I agree with Krauthammer and others’ assessment that Obama’s debate performance wasn’t anything out of the ordinary for him – it was only abysmal when compared to an intelligent Republican opponent who knew what he was talking about.

Best line of the clip: “Are you kidding me? Obama’s the most charismatic candidate since Pierre Elliot, Trudeau, and Rasputin”…

Heh – Charles really dislikes Obama…..

*Headline corrected to denote Romney as the debate winner – not Obama, lol, geez, no. Sorry for any confusion that caused.
