Video: Who wants to cast a non-citizen’s ballot?

A video triptych from James O’Keefe and Project Veritas. His last two vids showed how easy it is to obtain a ballot in someone else’s name. This one takes the logical next step of wondering how many of those ballots shouldn’t be there in the first place. Three segments: Non-citizen voting, bias among election officials, and finally liberal spin about the alleged nonexistence of voter fraud. Pay particular attention to the first because it’s not an isolated problem.
Florida election authorities are examining about 180,000 people who they say may not be U.S. citizens but are registered to vote in the state, an official said on Friday…
Florida’s Division of Elections said it is checking the citizenship of voters by comparing its databases with those of the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, which keeps track of whether a licensed driver is also a U.S. citizen…
Officials in Florida have so far identified more than 2,600 potential voters who may not be U.S. citizens and sent their information to local election authorities, Cate said.
A few thousand votes would never matter in a state as big as Florida, right? Serious question: How do O’Keefe’s cohorts keep a straight face when they’re wearing those costumes? I cracked up at the sight of the guy in lederhosen; I’d bet at least one sting operation had to be left on the cutting-room floor when the stinger simply dissolved in laughter at the absurdity of his get-up.
