Conservatives finally have evidence of one of those voter fraud conspiracies they've been warning us about for years. This has got to be a huge vindication for them.
James O'Keefe's latest video features surrogates appearing to commit voter fraud in yesterday’s New Hampshire primary election, all in an attempt to highlight voter fraud, a problem which is by-and-large nonexistent in the Granite State.
The undercover video shows unnamed individuals working at O'Keefe's behest approaching polling stations throughout New Hampshire. After poll workers asked for the person’s name, O’Keefe’s agents gave the name of a voter who died within the past few weeks, before then receiving a ballot to vote. The individuals asked the poll workers if they needed ID to prove their identity, and when poll workers confirmed that they did not, O'Keefe's men insisted on returning to their car to retrieve their ID and returned the ballot.
Okay, that's all well and good. But did O'Keefe actually catch him and his friends committing a crime? Don't worry, everyone. Yes indeed they did…
Now election law experts tell TPM that O'Keefe's allies could face criminal charges on both the federal and state level for procuring ballots under false names, and that his undercover sting doesn’t demonstrate a need for voter ID laws at all.
Federal law bans not only the casting of, but the "procurement" of ballots "that are known by the person to be materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent under the laws of the State in which the election is held."
I'll bet those idiotic liberals who thought this wasn't a problem feel pretty silly right about now.
