New Hampshire attorney general to revisit voting procedures

posted at 7:10 pm on January 12, 2012 by Tina Korbe

Controversial conservative filmmaker James O’Keefe has pulled off a hit again. Yesterday, the sting operationist released video footage of New Hampshire poll workers handing out ballots in the names of deceased individuals — and folks sat up and took notice. The video was uploaded just yesterday, but already boasts 125,055 views.

Among those who noticed were members of the New Hampshire attorney general’s office. Now, the AG plans a probe of the “Live Free or Die” state’s voting procedures, according to The Daily Caller.

The attorney general in New Hampshire is probing the state’s voting procedures in response to a video released Wednesday by conservative filmmaker James O’Keefe showing how easy it is to vote in the name of someone who is dead. …

O’Keefe told TheDC that the operation was done to bring attention to fraud since the state does not require identification to vote. Law enforcement seems to be watching.

“Based on the information we received on election day and the information obtained on the video, we are undertaking a comprehensive review of voting procedures with the Secretary of State’s office,” assistant New Hampshire attorney general Richard Head told TheDC by phone on Thursday.

The response of the New Hampshire attorney general’s office to O’Keefe’s investigative work is a tiny testament to the power of visual representation of a problem. As I read recently, “If you spend the time and resources necessary to truly understand and define the problem, then the solution will be staring you in the face.” In this case, O’Keefe and the other members of his organization, Project Veritas, spent the time and resources. Now, we’ll see whether New Hampshire law enforcement are able to see the obvious solution: Require identification at the polls.

Here’s the other issue…some pols here are talking about bringing up charges against O’Keefe and Project Veritas on the sting because of wiretap laws. Idiots…you have holes in your system, and you’re going to shoot the messenger (who didn’t actually vote and never said that they were the actual person…all their requests were phrased along the lines of “Do you have…?”)?

Even though I was only attempting to rile up the Mittbots, the more I think about it, it does make sense.

Huntsman had a powerful surge right before the NH, and he only got 17%?

And Mitt got about 40%? Not buying it.

http://nymag.com/daily/intel/2012/01/james-okeefe-expos-could-get-him-arrested.html

Think Progress notes that O’Keefe’s crew may have inadvertently committed voter fraud themselves by, in the words of the law, “[making] a false material statement regarding his or her qualifications as a voter to an election officer.” New Hampshire law also requires both parties to consent before filming their communication — and the election officials in O’Keefe’s video don’t appear to have given permission — so state officials are calling for the vigilante filmmaker to be to prosecuted.

The state’s Attorney General has said they are “undertaking a comprehensive review of voting procedures with the Secretary of State,” but local mayor Ted Gatsas said of the O’Keefe team, “They should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.” Nashua City Clerk Paul Bergeron added, “People who pull stunts like this should be prosecuted,” and told Think Progress that the video “is a crime, regardless of what the intent might be. What they did was wrong.”

This took place in New Hampshire’s 2 largest cities, Manchester and Nashua. Manchester has 12 voting wards, Nashua 9.

Most of those wards are strongly Democrat, but a few others are split almost 50-50. It’s those wards where the Democrats usually do their dirty work.

I’m actually being serious, for once.

Mitt was nowhere near 40% according to the trustworthy polls, at the same time Huntsman starts to surge, and Mitt gets 40%?

Obviously, Democrats in their districts flooded the ballot boxes with hundreds/thousands of Mitt votes since he’s the weakest candidate/least conservative candidate, and created the perception that Mitt is well-liked within the GOP base, despite Newt’s attacks being the only factor in making Mitt look like a conservative.

The libs are always afraid of a true, strong conservative.

I wonder if New Hampshire was one of the states targeted in the DNC’s “Secretary of State” project where they made a major effort over the years to elect Democrats to the office of Secretary of State in states where the office is elected. This gave the DNC control over the election process in many states, even where there might be a Republican governor and/or legislature. It even has a facebook page:

http://www.facebook.com/secstateproject

Where the goal is to get “progressives” elected to the position and thereby control the election process in states.

http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/printgroupProfile.asp?grpid=7487

Annnnd … the secretary of state for New Hampshire is Bill Gardner, a Democrat.

So I doubt much will get done. The office is elected by the legislature, though, not by the people.

crosspatch on January 12, 2012 at 7:53 PM

9 million people have died since Obama was elected – disallowing that constituency could be huge. That only leaves Democrats with the core group that’s dead from the neck up.

Lack of voter ID is only one part of the problem. In 2008, Sheila Jackson-Lee’s district had over 17,500 households with 6 or more registered voters, and half the ballots from those households were mailed in. An investigator visited one home with 12 registered voters, and found an old woman living there, who said that the people registered (her grown-up planned and wanted chirren) all intended to move back at some point, which apparently satisfies the local requirements. Not surprisingly, all 12 ballots from that home were mailed in that year. The voter rolls need proper purging as well.

Voter ID is a large step in carrying out the authenticity process. A friend went to vote in 2008, and was told that the records showed that she had already voted. Somehow, they were able to negate that ballot, and she was able to cast a legitimate ballot.

Well let’s see here… Yes I do have a John Smith on Washington drive, but if I remember right there was an obituary in the paper.

Well ma’am, I was kinda dead for a while but I got better. You see those docs just can’t quite get the diagnosis right.

Oh I know, all those medications they have me on I never know if I’m coming or going.

Ain’t that the truth ma’am.

Well not anymore. Nowadays I just head up the bereft of life voters club.

That’s wonderful is it hard to join?

No ma’am just about everyone here will get a chance.

Why yes. In fact our largest office is in Chicago.

And I am wholly pro-life.

I don’t want to derail the thread, but since Tina made my point, I wondered if she’d acknowledge it in another context.

I can actualy agree with the ‘tact’ argument so long as those who promote it also agree that there are times and places for the raw truth. Too often they don’t. What I can not agree with is the simultanious belief that abortion is a pervasive life and death issue that we need to be quiet about to the point of leaving the best tool in the toolbox out of the misguided idea that potentialy offending someone is worse than the loss of lives. It playes into the enemy’s hands to hide the truth.

Check out the link I posted. There are many arguments there for the use of pictures, and they send out more each month. I find the arguments compelling.

You can count on Gov. Lynch to veto it. Lynch is the typical commie democrat small time pol who is only interested in the opportunistic photo.

karenhasfreedom on January 12, 2012 at 9:32 PM

Funny, isn’t it? The Constitution sets the requirements for voting such as age and non-discrimination based on race, but does not define any specific procedures. Yet the libs [go figure] are in an absolute tizzy when the idea of having to show ID in order to exercise one’s franchise and secure the integrity of that franchise.

… and yet in the Second Amendment, the verbiage is crystal clear, “.. the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed” Still, the libs have no problem with requiring that the person purchasing an arm show ID and also clear a background check before being allowed to exercise a right that the constitution clearly states as not be infringed.

They have no problem with requiring ID for anyone under 25 to purchase tobacco products despite the legal age being 21. They also don’t see this as being discriminatory against people who don’t drive.

Consistency is not exactly the libs’ strong suit.

How in the world does such an incredibly liberal state as New Hampshire with an open primary (allowing independents to vote in the Republican primary) and without even the most basic of requirements – voter I.D. laws – to insure the integrity of the results continue to be the first Primary in the nation for the Republican party and, thus, is allowed to unduly influence (with such a tainted setup) who the Republicans will nominate for President?

The system is a wet dream for liberals and a nightmare for conservatives. Why in the world is this allowed to continue?

Or to buy Sudafed or NyQuil D. Not only show ID but have it scanned in.

As a NH voter, I hope they and all states start requiring IDs. I have always said it would be easy to vote as someone else at large polling places. Our kids went to UNH and registered to vote there. They also were still at the same time registered to vote in our hometown. There is no cross reference at least on election day to make sure these college kids aren’t voting once at school and then again at home. Never mind the out of state kids that register to vote and could theoretically vote again in their home state! We have to show ID for so many things including buying cold medicene- it’s time to require it to vote.

And no I don’t think Mitt cheated. He was polling way ahead all along. Why would he have to cheat where he is a favorite son?

New Hampshire did pass a phto ID Bill that our Governor vetoed and there was not enough votes to override his veto. The main problem was allowing someone to “provisionally” vote without an ID and give them “X” amount of days to come back and “prove” their identity…for a smart state that was a dumb idea.
Our state will give you a state issued ID if you can’t afford one so the same people who drive folks to go vote could drive them to get their ID.
I’m conflicted about mandatory ID’s for a constitutional right, but I’m more conflicted about the ease of fraud in elections…

And no I did not vote for Mitt…

“Annnnd … the secretary of state for New Hampshire is Bill Gardner, a Democrat.

So I doubt much will get done. The office is elected by the legislature, though, not by the people”

As to the above statement, Bill Gardner is a Democrat and a highly principled man who has served well as NH sec of state since 1976 and both parties have kept him in office. I would be very surprised and saddened should he not pursue this matter.

This is just the beginning of the hijinks we’ll see in play this year. The republic is doomed.

All I’d like to know is who the dead people voted for. I believe that would give us a good indication of who the left is trying to steer the voters to for Obama. Whoever that is, future voters need to take a step back and take another look at them.

There is no reason to oppose showing an ID to do something so important.
If you want to go on welfare, food stamps, SS, etc., you need to show your ID(s).
People who scream against this are criminally inclined.
Let’s say it like it is.
In the town of 850 people that is nearby where I go & vote, we show our ID (in ND).
Everybody knows everybody.
And we STILL show it to vote.

They got a guy in military prison who was curious about Obama’s birth certificate and Obama’s administration stonewalling on the birth certificate. The last straw was when he received orders to deploy to Afghanistan. The letter said that he had to bring 5 copies of his birth certificate in order to prove that he was the person they wanted to deploy to Afghanistan. He reasoned that if he needed to prove who he was for Obama to send him to Afghanistan, then he would demand that Obama prove the right to send him there.

Strange hill to choose to die upon, but interesting nonetheless.

I LOVE James O’Keefe! So many people just babble – he takes action. I hope there are thousands more young people who follow in his footsteps.

So, if the leftistproglibtards aren’t allowed to vote on behalf of the dead, then that leaves only them: the brain dead, right?

This is the first installment for this election year. More in other states are forthcoming. Especially in the blue states. We may see the biggest voter fraud expose in America history exposed. And what will Holder do?. What will his appointed successor do?
