Posted on 04/09/2012 4:49:36 PM PDT by mandaladon
The Justice Department has brushed aside a video by the conservative filmmaker James O'Keefe in which a polling station volunteer is tricked into giving the attorney general's primary ballot to the wrong person.
In the video, a man is seen giving the attorney general's name, Eric Holder, to a poll volunteer in Washington, D.C., along with Holder's address. The volunteer finds Holder's ballot and offers it to the man, who says he'd feel more comfortable if he provided his identification, which he says he left in his car.
The point of the video is to show that without voter ID laws, anyone can vote under anyone else's name when in reality, huge numbers of people who wanted to game the voting system would have to take part in a coordinated scheme to make even a small impact.
Rush Limbaugh praised O'Keefe as "brilliant" on his radio show today.
The Justice Department was less enthusiastic.
"It's no coincidence that these so-called examples of rampant voter fraud consistently turn out to be manufactured ones," said a department official, who asked not to be identified.

James O’Keefe is a GENIUS!
Holder, you’ve been punked.
“Question to the RNC: Do you have any specific plans to counteract the opposition’s fraud tactics in this November’s elections?”
I’ll answer that: “Uhhhhhhhhhhhhh..................”
“”The volunteer finds Holder’s ballot and offers it to the man””
I’ve voted in three different states in my voting years and have never seen a ballot with my name on it. Every report on this refers to a ballot in Holder’s name. Do they do things differently in DC?
***without voter ID laws, anyone can vote under anyone else’s name ***
How true! I remember reading of an election in the 1860s California. Various names were on the roles and into town came some Indians in breachclouts. They went into the polling station and declared they were..”O’Malley”. “Jones”
and various other Anglo names. They then made their mark on the ballot in the proper place for the Democrat candidate to win.
Holder serving as AG is a stunt.
It’s matters like this that make me wish FR allowed a certain amount of profanity so I could clearly state what I think of Mr. Holder and his Justice Department.
We have voter ID here in Ohio but even before we did you would walk in tell the people at the table your name and address and they would look in the book for your name, that book had a copy of your signature. You signed a form they checked your signature and they gave you a ballot (ours used to be those butterfly ballots.) You stuck it in the machine and punched the holes next to the names you wanted to vote for then when done you stuck your ballot in a little sleeve (that was also used for any write in candidates you wished to vote for) The people at the table took it and stuck it in slot in the top of a big box and they handed you a "I voted Today" sticker.
There was never a name attached to any ballot I ever voted on.
Both of those techniques can be thought of as vote fraud in the broad sense.
Yelp In Indiana the next voting cycle they used IDs from the state college with out of state students. The only areas of the state that were blue were college towns,
O’Keefe needs to set up cameras in black neighborhoods in swing states. Cheating is done by precinct people who ‘vote’ the folks who didn’t bother to show up for the election. If only 100 people walk into vote - but the tally is 3,000 citizens voted... then 2,900 are fake...
Messaged Breitbart that the only thing that would have made the video better would be to play one of Scot Joplin's rags that was used in the movie The Sting in the background!
ALA Charlie Chapman....complete with facial hair.
Stalin would be proud!
Pray for America
Watch the video. He never says he is Eric Holder. The campaign worker gives the address.
Holder might. We’re not!
These heaters need to say LOUD AND CLEAR exactly why they think that poor or darker people are less competent in obtaining ID than the wealthy or the white.
There is no good reason to not show ID to vote. NO. GOOD. REASON.
Heaters = cheaters
For Holder and his minions to investigate, a case must be dripping with melanometricity..
