James O’Keefe and his Project Veritas team have done it again. A new video from the hidden-camera political filmmakers shot in Vermont demonstrates how ridiculously easy it is to commit voter fraud in states that don’t require photo ID to vote.
No doubt, the familiar cries from those who want to protect loose election systems will be shouted from the rooftops. “O’Keefe should be prosecuted for voter fraud,” they’ll wail. “How dare he expose our system’s glaring flaws to the public?!”
Of course, as before, O’Keefe and his team were careful not to commit actual voter fraud. They didn’t accept or cast the ballots that were offered to them in the names of other voters and deceased people. Indeed, they insisted on showing ID.
They’re treading on thin ice, though. Depending on the laws in Vermont, misrepresenting ones self may be enough for some kind of legal trouble. It takes courage of conviction to do what these brave people did to prove their point.
After exposing the ease of voter impersonation fraud, the Project Veritas team also deftly demonstrated the folly of calling Voter ID laws racially discriminatory in humorous interactions with a hotel clerk, a bartender and a city clerk as they attempted to file for a civil union without ID.
What the Veritas Team proved in this third installment of their “Voter Fraud in America” series applies equally to Minnesota as to Vermont. In fact, Minnesota’s election laws are even worse than Vermont’s in protecting against false identity voting because you don’t even need the name of a real registered voter to obtain a fraudulent ballot. With Election Day registration and vouching, voter identities can be invented on the spot in the polling place.
Kudos to Project Veritas. Looking forward to their next installment.
