No surprises here. Any Democrat who tells you actual voter fraud is rare – is either a lo-info drone, or lying to your face. Democrats and voter fraud go together like peaches and cream and have since the days of Tammany Hall.
Many liberals are adamant there is no threat of voter fraud that justifies efforts to improve the integrity of elections. “There is no real concrete evidence of voter fraud,” tweeted Donna Brazile, former acting chair of the Democratic National Committee, this week. “It’s a big ass lie.”
James O’Keefe, the guerilla filmmaker who brought down the ACORN voter-registration fraudsters in 2010 and forced the resignation of NPR executives, politely disagrees. Today, he is releasing some new undercover footage that raises disturbing questions about ballot integrity in Colorado, the site of fiercely contested races for the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House, and the governorship. When he raised the issue of filling out some of the unused ballots that are mailed to every household in the state this month, he was told by Meredith Hicks, the director of Work for Progress, a liberal group funded by Democratic Super PACS.: “That is not even like lying or something, if someone throws out a ballot, like if you want to fill it out you should do it.” She then brazenly offered O’Keefe, disguised as a middle-aged college instructor, a job with her group.
Lefties, are of course wailing and gnashing their teeth over this latest O’Keefe sting. Mother Jones lowlife David Corn is trying to discredit the results on Twitter, but does have a point about one thing.
Apparently, O’Keefe tried the same shtick with some Dem staffers but was rebuffed. Mother Jones had a write-up about that a couple of days ago in preparation for the release of the sting video. One of the staffers even took a picture of O’Keefe in his fake mustache allowing people to have a sneak peek.
It’s not surprising that Democrat staffers are not so careless that they would allow themselves to get caught on video supporting voter fraud. They let their community organizers handle that part of the criminal enterprise. It is a little surprising and disappointing that that fact wasn’t mentioned anywhere in the O’Keefe’s video.
This excuse doesn’t really cut it:
The video is not yet up on the Project Veritas website. Hopefully the write-up there will have the whole story.
