Video: Hey, who wants to cast Eric Holder’s ballot?

posted at 4:25 pm on April 9, 2012 by Allahpundit

In case you missed it at Breitbart.com this morning, an ingenious stunt from James O’Keefe and Project Veritas. Note that there’s no actual fraud committed here. There could have been if the impersonator had followed through, but when it came time to sign Holder’s name in the registrar’s book, that was his cue to bail out in the guise of going back to the car to get his ID — which, of course, the registrar helpfully reminded him that he didn’t need. An unnamed federal official confirmed for NBC News that there’s no illegality unless and until someone else’s name is signed to obtain the ballot, so bear that in mind for when the inevitable “prosecute O’Keefe” screeching begins.

New York mag argues that there probably aren’t many cases of impostors taking the time to research another person’s name and address and then risking prison to obtain a ballot fraudulently. Maybe not, but I don’t think O’Keefe is claiming otherwise. The point is to show, in the most vividly ridiculous way possible, how a mundane practice and mainstay of American life like presenting photo ID magically disappears in the context of elections. There are, after all, potential solutions to the problems of voters without ID that don’t require stupidly handing over a ballot in someone else’s name on the say-so of the person requesting it. Exit quotation from a whiny DOJ official: “It’s no coincidence that these so-called examples of rampant voter fraud consistently turn out to be manufactured ones.”

I didn’t see anyone here complaining that the republican primary voters weren’t asked to provide IDs when casting their votes. Pathetic…

Roy, never underestimate the Barack Hussein Obama voter of 2012. They’re all capable of being the next tard4life. They just have to step up and want it! Our New Yorker seems to have the right stuff for just that.

I was listening to some lefty talk radio show a few weeks ago that was haranguing about Voter ID laws and “nonexistent” voter fraud. Within a half hour they got three calls from people who said someone had voted for them or a relative. I was laughing my head off.

In Virginia, polling place officials request an ID before you are given a ballot and your name is then marked off the poll list with a straight-edge and pen. I am aware that each state/commonwealth institutes its own rules, however.

I posted this earlier in the Headlines thread

December, 2011:

The state chairman of Indiana’s Democratic Party resigned Monday as a probe of election fraud in the 2008 Democratic presidential primary widened.

State law requires a presidential candidate to gather 500 valid signatures in each county to qualify for the ballot. Barack Obama may not have met it. Investigators think 150 of the 534 signatures the Obama campaign turned in for St. Joseph County may have been forged.

Yet Democrats say that measures to guard against vote fraud are racist Republican plots to disenfranchise minority voters.

Former Democratic Rep. Artur Davis, who is black, said vote fraud is rampant in African-American districts like his in Alabama.

“The most aggressive contemporary voter suppression in the African-American community is the wholesale manufacture of ballots at the polls and absentee, in parts of the Black Belt,” Mr. Davis said. “Voting the names of the dead, and the nonexistent, and the too mentally impaired to function cancels out the votes of citizens who are exercising their rights.”

In Georgia, black voter turnout for the midterm election in 2006 was 42.9 percent. After Georgia passed photo ID, black turnout in the 2010 midterm rose to 50.4 percent. Black turnout also rose in Indiana and Mississippi after photo IDs were required.

“Concerns about voter identification laws affecting turnout are much ado about nothing,” concluded researchers at the universities of Delaware and Nebraska after examining election data from 2000 through 2006.

This year there have been investigations, indictments or convictions for vote fraud in California, Texas, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Georgia, North Carolina and Maryland. In all but one case, the alleged fraudsters were Democrats.

in the Illinois gubernatorial election in 1982, 100,000 votes cast in Chicago — 10 percent of the total — were fraudulent, the U.S. attorney there estimated.

Yep, no such thing as Democrat Vote/Voter Fraud.

Michigan has had a voter ID law for nearly 20 years. In fact when I voted in the Feb. 28 primary, the poll worker scanned my driver’s license online to ensure it was valid.

To make a long story short, there have been no problems in Michigan even though there are (unconfirmed) rumors that a large number of minorities reside in Detroit and Flint.

If voter ID can work in Michigan, it can work anywhere

bw222 on April 9, 2012 at 5:17 PM

I like showing my ID to vote. I use my passport.

Bmore on April 9, 2012 at 5:17 PM

I wouldn’t necessarily advocate this, but I GUARANTEE you if conservatives started engaging in voter fraud, the system would finally get fixed. Conservative activists could find places where it’s a slap on the wrist to “test” they system.

But as long as this swings one way, the Democrats see absolutely no incentive to “cave” on it, despite the fact that ID Voter laws enjoy around 80% approval.

The next Republican Congress should tie Voter ID laws to highway funding.

The commission that Jimmy Carter co-chaired called voter identification one of “five pillars” that would “build confidence” in the integrity of federal elections.

The NAACP, Voter ID Laws, the UN, and Jimmy Carter

Want evidence of election and voter fraud? Here’s some evidence for you:

Every Vote Counts, But Some Votes Count More Than Others…Especially If They Are Cast For Democrats

In 2008, the Supreme Court in Crawford v. Marion County Election Board, 553 U.S. 181, upheld an Indiana law requiring voters to provide photo IDs did not violate the Constitution of the United States by a vote of 6-3. The majority opinion was written by uber-liberal, John Paul Stevens.

Interestingly Gallup published the results of a survey involving media trust (or lack thereof) about a year ago. It found that approximately 70% of respondents either have little trust of the media or totally distrust the media.

It also found that those most likely to trust the media were the very liberal and the least educated. There is a correlation.

FTA”Sixteen small counties across Texas appear to have more registered voters on their rolls as of 2010 than qualified citizens of voting age – a phenomenon prompting conservative Washington, D.C., watchdog group to question whether the “overcounts” could raise the potential for election fraud.”

dogsoldier on April 9, 2012 at 6:27 PM

“New York mag argues that there probably aren’t many cases of impostors taking the time to research another person’s name and address and then risking prison to obtain a ballot fraudulently.”

First of all, of course that is their argument – knee-jerk and without any proof except for the editor’s perceived likelihood of such acts.

Secondly, most individuals probably don’t have the time and dedication to consistently affect election outcomes, but there are taxpayer-funded organizations that not only have the time, but specialize in arranging such acts. So yet another liberal media outlet throws its intellectual honesty out the window for “the cause”.

I’ve read this type of stuff and they reference some study or other to prove their point. It would be interesting to see how valid their study is. It would also be interesting to see if it is actually a study or something that references other studies which aren’t studies either. I wouldn’t be surprised by the later.

BTW the 70% national figure I got from MSNBC 2008 exit polling, but they apparently were ashamed of the result so magically scrubbed their website a year or so ago. I still have the original screen caps someplace.

The CNN 2008 exit polling numbers, which are still up, have O’bama tying the previous alltime record of 61% set by Algore in 2000, but their state by state breakdown showed at least 1 state, Florida, where O’bama got 70% of the HS dropout vote.

Funny how we never heard this particular stat after the 2008 election. Nope, all the Democrat Media told us was how O’bama handily won the votes of those folks with Advanced Degrees.

A couple years ago I watched a Mexican fellow complete his application for a drivers license at the local sec of state’s office. He barely spoke english. The clerk completed the form for him asking if he wanted to register to vote. He said no so she did not check the box.

By asking him, she made it very easy for the fellow to take a leap and say yes. The ones who had no trouble filling out the form would not be asked, only the ones who could not complete the form.

If you have any doubts that many Democrats are still living in the year 2000, just Google “Brooks Brothers Riot”.

My point exactly! This seems like a total hammer to pound the left with…but silence.

Is there some consternation that what they did was illegal?

Well Duh! That’s what happens when people pretend to be who they are not at a polling place.

He did not take the ballot, in fact he had to practically force the ballot back into to poll volunteer hands, so what’s the problem?

Guess I’m going to have to wait for RedEye in order to see any coverage of this.

Gutfeld, you’re really going to disappoint me if you don’t have anything to say about this…

LOL at 2:08.

I once went to an an urgent care place with my hand bandaged up like 2:08. I could not write out the forms/sign my name. After E-rays etc…2 days later I was in surgery.

E-rays = X-rays

Bear with me. I have insomnia after a long Southeast Asian trip.

This event isn’t being covered?

While our AG fights voter ID laws history shows corruption of another sort.

Attorney General Holder “don’t know much about History.”

Chicago election officials were jailed in 1962 over misconduct in the 1960 elections. And President Nixon was a crook. Just ask any Community College student. Then Google it.

Did things change?

How about a story titled: Mass Illegal Alien Voter Fraud Uncovered in Florida

You never heard of that, either. Well, in fairness, it happened way back in April of 2012!

IF the DoJ pursues this as possible voter fraud, how do they prove the guy who asked for Holder’s ballot IS NOT Holder without asking for his I.D.?

Why was this removed from the Drudge Report overnight? Possible fake? Does Drudge know something we don’t? Did he capitulate to DOJ pressure?

Just curious. This was the top story on the drudge report when I went to bed last night. I woke up this morning and it’s not there.

bigbeas on April 10, 2012 at 10:03 AM

An unnamed federal official confirmed for NBC News that there’s no illegality unless and until someone else’s name is signed to obtain the ballot, so bear that in mind for when the inevitable “prosecute O’Keefe” screeching begins.

That screeching is only because the left can’t get around their own position that there is no such thing as voter fraud.

I hope this phrase catches fire and is used mockingly until the end of time itself…

See, I read that and was all “Nice work on the Hunger Games references!”

Carry on.

Its till on Breitbart. The DoJ responded to the video yesterday. I suspect that drudge found the stock market issues more important.

The economy seems to be melting down. I’ve been spamming Ed with stuff all day.

You can see the original report here: http://www.breitbart.com/

Its till should read “it’s still”.

dogsoldier on April 10, 2012 at 1:45 PM

Speaking of Breitbart, and speaking of voter and vote fraud. we have this amusing story of both in the Blue State of New York:
