DNC Fires Employee Featured In James O’Keefe Video
TPM ^ | October 11, 2012

Posted on 10/11/2012 2:16:42 PM PDT by Southnsoul

The Democratic National Committee on Wednesday fired a Texas staffer who appeared to offer to help someone figure out how to vote simultaneously in two states in undercover video released by conservative activist James O’Keefe.

Shot in September in the Houston office of Organizing for America, President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign, the video appears to show regional field director Stephanie Caballero helping someone who claims to want to vote in both Florida and Texas. The video was posted online on Wednesday morning by O’Keefe, who is known for undercover stunts, the results of which are sometimes heavily edited.

DNC spokeswoman Melanie Roussell told TPM this video, however, was clear enough to fire the staffer.

“There is obviously a history here of making selective use of taped material, and we will certainly not vouch for the completeness of what was released,” Roussell said. “However, what we saw was enough for us to take the action that we did.”

Caballero did not respond to TPM’s request for comment.

and why have we not seen a perp walk, and indictments, felony charges filed, etc?? fired? I don’t care about that, they’ll just be hired somewhere else by a Rat org and continue doing the same thing. A highly public and visible trail, followed by the max jail time is what is needed.

When a teacher or a waiter goes bad they always punish the employer, I think it is very appropriate this time too

Fired for getting caught, not what she got caught for

It’s a start. But she needs to be arrested... NOW! An example must be made of her immediately.

Or Susan Rice, who hopefully will be unemployed soon. Although she’s probably not competent enough.

Has any of this been reported in the MSM? (Including FoxNews)

And not one mention of this criminal on any MSM news. Not even Fox.

I thought he always released the full unedited versions...

I’m just hoping James has several more of these just waiting to be released.

I doubt that’s his only tape....

FoxNews needs to give O’Keefe a small staff and an weekly hour slot... He has things to say... and he’ll make everyone else look totally mainstream. (a twofer)

She’ll be rehired through the back door. Democrats need reliably corrupt employees.

she should not be fired, she should be hung

Until there is severe punishment there will be no end to the corruption
