Project Veritas Unmasks Fresh Dem Voter Fraud in Texas

Project Veritas Unmasks Fresh Dem Voter Fraud in Texas By Deroy Murdock February 19, 2014 2:30 PM

Yet again, the intrepid James O’Keefe and his Project Veritas team have uncovered illegal political work being carried out by the Left. In a just-released video, they document the illicit activities of Battleground Texas (BGTX), a Democrat group dedicated to electing Wendy Davis governor and turning the Lone Star State into a Democrat stronghold. The latter objective, if achieved, likely would mean curtains for the Republican party in the Electoral College.

Project Veritas found Battleground Texas busy signing up new voters.

“So, every time we register somebody to vote, we keep their [sic] name, address, phone number,” says Jennifer Longoria, a field organizer with Battleground. A Project Veritas investigator captured Longoria’s face and words on a hidden camera. “Once we register people to vote tonight we will all turn in our cards and our data person will enter not all the information, but name, address, and phone number.”

These efforts may be diligent, but they also are illegal.

Sec. 13.004 of the Texas legal code states: “The registrar may not transcribe, copy, or otherwise record a telephone number furnished on a registration application.”

O’Keefe & Co. also captured a Battleground volunteer saying that the group forges signatures on voter-related documents. “It happens all the time,” she said.

This additional evidence of fraud refutes liberal and Democrat claims that this political disease is an imaginary ailment that conservatives hallucinate in the far Right’s fever swamps. O’Keefe and his brave investigators have shown once more that electoral corruption is all too real.

Im pretty sure Texas uses the paperless machines like Florida.

In the 2012 US election, we used the same machines as Venezuela that have been proven that they can be easily tampered.

Smartmatic is the name of the company.

How many times has Eric Holder told us gun loving bitter clingers that voter fraud only exists in our fertile over imaginative small pea picken minds....

Get over it..../S

Hey! If our representatives look the other way when the traitor-in-charge does anything he wants, why worry about his minions performing voter fraud?

It’s for the children you have to remember.

The outrageous violations of law by the left is approaching critical mass levels. Where do citizens turn when government officials choose to allow it?

....while true that the central TX counties have iVotronic machines at the polling places, in the last 4 elections I’ve worked the electronic votes are less than 20% of total votes.... even when there is often no line for the machine and a wait for the paper ballot booth.

ymmv

It is not the machines.

It is the registration, absentee fraud and lack of I.D.

Just as Treason is a capital offense, so should voter fraud be for the same reason. It undermines the foundations of trust in the system.

Abbott is in a tough place since he’s running for governor and the current Attorney general.

I would hope our state government would get on this.

Texas flipping to the dark side would spell the end of any conservative comeback, ever.

It’s still a mixed bag according to this article from back in Oct. 2012.

http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9233058/Election_watchdogs_keep_wary_eye_on_paperless_e_voting_systems

But a total of 16 states will, to varying extents, use DREs that do not support a paper
trail as their standard polling place equipment, according to Verified Voting.

Of these, six states — New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, South Carolina, Georgia,
and Louisiana — will be completely paperless. All ballots that are cast in these
states will be on DREs that support no paper trail whatsoever.

The remaining states, which include Texas, Colorado, Florida, Virginia and
Pennsylvania, will use a mix of paper ballots and DRE voting systems that are
paperless. But even here, the states of Virginia, Pennsylvania and Tennessee
will be almost completely reliant on paperless electronic voting systems. In Tennessee
for instance, all but two counties will use paperless DREs, while in Virginia all but
seven of 134 countries will use paperless systems. Meanwhile, in a handful of
states like Florida only voters with physical disabilities will use paperless DREs.

The state attorney general is in a “damned-if-you-do-damned-if-you-don’t” situation here.

The atty general, Greg Abbott (R), is running for governor against Wendy Davis (D), who is supported by “Turn Texas Blue.”

One of the Project Veritas videos shows Davis supporters making fun of Abbott because he’s in a wheelchair.

They’re a nasty bunch, but anything Abbott’s office did would be portrayed as partisan politics.

That said, these people are violating FEDERAL voting laws, so seems to me a complaint to the feds is the correct route.

And I’m sure Eric Holder’s people would jump right on it. /s/

I don’t know what the true impact of this will be but Texas
now requires photo ID to vote.

I agree Eric “boo-boo” Holder will get his very best people on it, because he after all believes in a clean valid election

The state attorney general, Greg Abbott, is a staunch, law-and-order, anti-corruption Republican. I don’t know whether his people are looking at this or not, but your assumption is incorrect.

YES!

I filed a complaint last Wed - by Friday had email that it had been sent from Sec of State to Atty Genl office. Dewhurst also filed a complaint on Friday.

Letter from Sec of state office said I would have written report in 60-90 days.

We have both paper and electronic. When I voted in Dallas County, it was always a choice.

Here in Kaufman County, the GOPers in charge decided that we would ONLY use electronic in early voting and paper for election day. I wonder how the provisional votes are being done during early voting.

*********************
I did the early voting this morning (Thur.) in Tarrant County and it was all by machine. I had my voter’s registration card and driver license, but they said they only needed the photo I.D., not the registration card, because of the change in the law. ...The guy at the table input my data into some computer program and it likely verified my registration.

So, I guess the ‘provisional’ votes will be in suspension until they get confirmation from the cross-referencing to the official registration data base. ....Just guessing.
