EXCLUSIVE: O'Keefe Video Exposes Voter Fraud-Friendly Policies In Vermont
Breitbart.com ^ | March 13, 2012 | Christian Hartsock

Posted on 03/13/2012 12:00:52 PM PDT by deks

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has released a new video exposing just how easy it is to commit voter fraud in Vermont.

The video, a sequel to O'Keefe's "Primary of the Living Dead" in New Hampshire, shows a Veritas agent entering various voting places around the state of Vermont, giving a different name each time. Each time, he is given a ballot without showing an ID, to his disbelief.

The new video follows in the wake of a highly-politicized media attack on Mr. O’Keefe after his exposure of voter fraud in New Hampshire. Those videos resulted in calls from the left for O’Keefe’s arrest. However, the videos soon resulted in the New Hampshire State Senate passing a new bill requiring voter ID.

O'Keefe's new video from Vermont could not be more timely, coming the day after the U.S. Department of Justice's civil rights division blocked a Texas photo ID requirement for voters...

If it is not discriminatory for Vermont citizens to be required to show ID to get married or buy alcohol, it is certainly not discriminatory to make them show ID to vote.

O’Keefe is a genius. Its awesome when the other side is shown to be the frauds that they are.

On another note, how is it possible for the DOJ to overturn VoterID in Texas, when the SCOTUS ruled that those same laws WERE constitutional in ‘08. Same goes for Wisconsin. They have a state court judge overturning a SCOTUS decision.

I am certain you would need a photo ID to get welfare benefits and an EBT card as well as to buy liquor and beer so I don’t think requiring one to vote would disenfranchise any Obama voters.

Indeed. No voter ID needed here in Mass. either.

We're going to Burlington! And Bennington! And Rutland! Then we're going to Brattleboro! And St. Johnsbury! and Waterbury! Then we're going to Montpelier to take back the State House! Arrrrrrrrrrrrrgh!

GREAT VID!!! This needs to get out there on “friendly” media outlets ASAP! People in Texas, SC, WI all need to see this so that the outrage can begin to mount. Washington has to see that WE THE PEOPLE will not stand for voter fraud!
C’mon Texas take a stand and just say “NO” to Big Bro!

Gold. Great work, Mr. O’Keefe. Vermont doesn’t even require a voter registration card.

Veritas Agent: Don’t you want to see my ID?

Poll Worker: No. We trust you!

Newt has said that if he becomes POTUS, on day one he will fire all the Tzars. I wish he would add Holder to that list.

My big worry about the upcoming election is fraud. The dems. have no shame and will stop at nothing to cheat.

“What’s your address please?”
“1250 Shelburne Road.”
“Name?”
“John Voter.”
“I’m sorry sir, we have you marked down that you already
voted.”

Someone can go to your polling place and give YOUR address and name and be handed a ballot!

The police pull over a car for weaving all over the road.
A 12 yr old is at the wheel.

“You’re too young to have a license. Why are you driving?”
“Why can’t I? My mom and dad don’t have to show an ID
when they vote. Why do I have to show an ID if I drive
my mom’s car? Why can’t I?”

That's my question as well. Where's the statutory authority to stop Texas from enforcing their law? Can somebody help me out here?

Supposedly they have jurisdiction over certain states as a holdover from the Jim Crow era to regulate voting laws that they consider racially discriminatory.

Texans, by their nature and genetic makeup are extreme racists and therefore need more Federal Government regulations to civilize them.

nope.

There was a "civil rights" law passed in '65 that had to do with about 7 or 8 Southern States, that were viewed as bad and racist and when the law was about to expire in '06 the pubbies and GWB from Texas, extended it for another 25 years.

Ball-less bastards, all.

And they will continue to use the Voting Rights Act as a club against the states to encourage Democrat vote fraud until a state (Texas? Please?) finally says, we don’t care what you think—take us to court over your unconstitutional and outmoded Voting Rights Act, but we’re going to enforce our equitable voting laws whether you like it or not.

"Why does your hotel have this racist policy?"

Hysterical! That poor girl had no idea how to answer.

Just shows how utterly absurd the claim is, whether in a hotel or a voting booth.

That's just it. He fooled them all. GWB ain't from Texas. He ain't a yankee. He's a damned yankee. He came down here and won't go home.

I does not matter as by the time such a decision would make it past the politically biased scum in the USSC this traitor to our Constitution will be re-elected in part by voter fraud.

5-4, 5-4, 5-4, 5-4, 5-4..... tell any intelligent person this court is not as concerned with the constitution as much as they are following the will of their parties and the rest of us be damned.

They are not leaving anything to chance so the dead must be allowed to vote, and in some cases, many times.

I wonder how many polling places will have the Black Panther monkeys threatening potential voters?

I am unable to post the article due to copyright complaints involving the paper, but Burlington VT Free Press says
according to state A.G., the election officials followed the law. The film-makers didn’t.

Jim Condos, A.G. of VT, is calling for a criminal
investigation.

In California I have never been asked to show my I'D when going to vote. I was asked for my name, and if I recall right maybe my address. These policies must be changed to ensure fair elections. Without secure voting policies we have no democracy. Keep up the good work O’Keefe and be safe.

Agreed...but I just wish he would say it - Romney and Santorum also.

Holder is an absolute disgrace. He should be impeached.

a comment from one of the posters linked

“I am a sober alcoholic, so I never buy alcohol. I don’t have a car and never drive a friends car, so I do not need a driver’s license. I have no banking accounts, nor retirement plans, nor do I have a job. I have never flown on an airplane and don’t plan to. I have never signed a lease for an apartment. I do not have allergies so so do not buy allergy medication. I have never had a cold so have never bought cold medicine with decongestant in it.

Therefore, I do not have a state ID and obviously don’t need one.

I have no friends nor family, I don’t have ten dollars, and I have no idea where the DMV is. Six months is not enough time for me to find the DMV and find a ride. so if you require me to have one to vote, I will be dis-enfranchised.

There are millions and millions and millions of proud patriots just like me who only want to exercise my right to vote, so this is a HUGE issue of discrimination, can’t you see?”

Thanks for the Vermont newspaper link. And they did have the Project Veritas video right there in the article for all to view. In the comments I noticed that every liberal using the same old spurious talking points is rebutted by conservative (truthful) comments.

Which reminds me...that many people who participate in the FR forum are living in liberal majority states, so I don’t want to forget them by thinking of some states as all liberal. Even Virginia went to Obama by 52.62% in 2008, but that can be reversed along with some other states too (I guess the states that are two thirds liberal will need to be outvoted by the other states :)

Virginia could also do better by electing our terrific Attorney General as Governor in 2013 (see Ken Cuccinelli quote in my tagline).

Great timing on this one. It makes Eric Holder look like a partisan racist for his ruling in the Texas election law issue.

You’re both so right (I was being so careful about posting an article to the Front Page sidebar for the first time, that I forgot to watch the video til later).

This video is genius. Don’t just assume you know what’s on it. Watch the whole thing.

If you want your gay domestic partnership, the state refuses unless you show ID!! How racist! Lol.

What a brilliant point.

For your edification, a Yankee is just a Yankee as long as he stays where he is born has vacations north and west of his home and Florida. A damn Yankee is some one who vacations south of where his home is and passes through your state on their way to Florida but eventually go home. Your basic GD Yankees moves to your state and looks down on you and your neighbors because you are not as cosmopolitan or as enlightened as he is. Now you yankee SOB is that rare piece of human debris that is a die hard Democrat union member who moves to your town, declares it backwards and goes about making it like the human cesspool it moved from. But what do I know? I’m just a southern conservative redneck which according to the LSM and all Yankees makes me a racist, sexist, bigot, homophobic, xenophobe. Did I mention the rifle rack in my pickup? Or that we grace before every meal and Yes Sir and Yes Ma’am is not only polite but shows your Mom and Dad raised you right? Did I mention we know it’s just common sense that you don’t spend more than you make, the Constitution is just fine as it is, we should have never dissolved the House UnAmerican Activities Committee and every person who don’t like this country should get the hell out and take your damned illegal aliens with you on the way out.
