Federal, state probes possible after Democrat campaign boss caught
Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is aware of the undercover video that captured Democratic Rep. Jim Morans campaign field director conspiring to commit voter fraud, but by law, he cannot act without a formal request from another entity, the AGs spokesman told WND.
Cuccinelli, nevertheless, has voter fraud on his radar, agreeing Wednesday to accept another election case and calling for legislation that would give his office concurrent authority with local state attorneys to investigate and prosecute election law violations without awaiting a formal request from any other entity.
As WND reported, Patrick Moran, the son of the congressman, resigned Wednesday after a video by James OKeefes Project Veritas showed him advising an undercover reporter how to fraudulently cast ballots in the name of registered voters by forging utility bills and relying on the assistance of Democrat lawyers.
Project Veritas is known for its hidden-camera probe of the controversial national community organizing group tied to Obama, ACORN.
Meanwhile, former Federal Elections Commission member and Justice Department official Hans von Spakovsky told WND after seeing the video that both the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia and Cuccinellis office should investigate.
Under federal law, attempting to solicit fraudulent votes is a federal felony, and it appears that is exactly what may have happened in video, he said.
Von Spakovsky, who was nominated to the FEC by President George W.

He led the departments approval of a Georgia law requiring voter ID that was opposed by Democrats who believed it would disenfranchise African-American voters.

The state board of elections has to ask the Virginia AG (Ken Cuccinelli) to investigate allegations of voter fraud. Our AG has a case right now of a GOP contract worker throwing out 8 voter registration forms in Harrisonburg. It is reported that the forms did not contain party affiliation, so I don’t know why he did it. Just because he was employed by a firm contracted by the GOP, that doesn’t mean he supports the GOP.
Dem VA Congressmen - including Moran - asked Holder to launch a DOJ investigation.
Cuccinelli doesn’t believe that the board of elections will ask him to investigate Patrick Moran - who talked about voter fraud on the O’Keefe video - because right now there’s no proof that Moran actually tried to commit voter fraud. But that VA “voter ID” law - that accepts a utility bill as proof of identity- is ripe for abuse. The utility bill angle is the one Moran mentioned to O’Keefe.
