These are tough times we're living in folks! Our country is under assault from people who want to do all kinds of vaguely nefarious things. Things that probably involve literal boat-loads of dildos and Muslims living quiet unmolested lives and poor people haphazardly casting votes for things they aren't smart enough to comprehend. That's why we need to people like James O'Keefe out there to even the score. To strike a blow for the big guy.
So, it really pains me to see James O'Keefe — who happens to be the person most like James O'Keefe — being subjugated under the cruel yoke of laws that were clearly written for less heroic people…
[Nashua City Clerk Paul] Bergeron said this morning he believes the filmmakers may have committed a federal crime, as well, if they crossed state lines to record the undercover video, and should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
"It's against the law to steal, so if you go out and steal and then put up a video and say, 'Look, I stole something,' that's a crime. What these people did was a crime; they stole a person's identity and used it to try to obtain a ballot that would be used in a state election," said Bergeron.
"They recorded it without election officials' knowledge, which apears to be a violation of our New Hampshire wiretapping codes, and some of these are out of state residents, so I don't know if violations of wiretapping or ID theft could hold up in court, but if they crossed state lines to commit these crimes, it may be a federal crime as well. This is serious; we won't tolerate voter fraud, regardless of what the intent might be," Bergeron said.
Oh, really, Mr. Nashua City Clerk? I wonder what your tone would be if it turned out that the voter fraud was done to help lesbian communists train black children to be terrorists for Mexican drug cartels?
Your double standards sicken me!

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.

* Herman Cain wants to be Mitt Romney's Secretary of Defense because you don't need to know anything about a country to blow it up. Hell, you don't even need to know its name.
* That guy who pretended to be a Muslim for James O'Keefe is accusing him of not having the highest journalistic standards in town.
* Gabrielle Giffords's husband is mad at John Boehner for not coming to visit his wife in the hospital. Personally, I'd view that as a professional courtesy.
* Congress declares pizza a vegetable. (This seems wrong to me. I think it's more likely that they were actually talking about Herman Cain.)

* You know that guy who wants to make a Constitutional amendment to legally strip the rights from that one minority group? Well, some comedy show made fun of him. Why are liberals always "bullying" him?
* Here's an article about Gary Johnson seemingly seeking the support pagan voters. Which seems to be somewhat heretical to me. Isn't written somewhere that "Thou shalt not suffer a Gary Johnson to get media attention"?
* James O'Keefe just uncovered a pernicious leftist plot to make it appear as though there is no pernicious leftist plot. Not sure which Halloween costume he used this time. I hoping Slutty Nurse.
* Barack Obama just compared Occupy Wall Street to Tea Party, once again showcasing his innate ability to make everybody on both sides of the aisle happy all at once.
