Voter ID Opponents Do A Facepalm

--posted by Tony Garcia on 10/25/2012

I bet the folks against requirements to show ID to vote are doing a facepalm over this story. Remember, one of the main tenets of the anti-ID crowd is that there is no voter fraud. I have people tell me that in this state it is impossible. My take is that human nature being what it is and politics being as divided as it is that it is folly to ignore human nature. It is human nature to "stretch the truth" and play in the grey areas...to test the limits and stretch the boundaries.

So when the field director of Jim Moran (D-VA) gets busted on video advising someone how to fraudulently cast votes it makes me wonder how the anti-Safe Election crowd will respond. What is worse is that the field director was telling how to cast those votes...by forging utility bills. And they won't be able to dismiss it as one rogue person. The field director was advising that, if caught, the person could rely on Democrat lawyers to help.
The son of Rep. Jim Moran, D-Va. – who serves as the field director for his father’s campaign – has been caught on video advising an undercover reporter how to fraudulently cast ballots in the name of registered voters by forging utility bills and relying on the assistance of Democrat lawyers.
But, you would say to me, this works on both sides. I'm sure it does. But I don't hear anywhere near as many stories about organized voter fraud on the Right as I do on the Left. In fact, I have never heard of an organized effort on the Right. I have been on mailing lists for organizations across the spectrum from Green Party to Constitution Party and I left some of them for using those mailing list to organize voter fraud. Specifically, that was the Green Party at the U of MN who was trying to organize busing people to Iowa to allow them to vote both in MN and in IA. They were also organizing groups to take advantage of same day registration and vote in multiple locations including at home and at school.

I guarantee if there were as many any stories about Right-leaning groups engaged in this crap then the Left would not be fighting so strongly against the ID Requirements to vote. Wait, I take that back. After the 2000 election the Left suddenly wanted to scrap the Electoral College. (Aside: I wonder if Romney should win the popular vote but lose the election will those people on the Left scream again as loudly about the Electoral College or will they be embracing that part of the Constitution?)

The guy that busted this field director has busted many people including the uber-socialist group, ACORN.
James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, known for its hidden-camera probe of the controversial national community organizing group tied to Obama, ACORN, carried out the investigation and provided the video exclusively to WND.
The field director has immediately resigned. But I would like to see criminal charges brought against him.

Furthermore, Jim Moran is no angel either. I mean, when a Democrat gets punished by Nancy Pelosi you know he is out there.
Jim Moran, 67, a controversial figure in Congress, has been criticized for his collaboration with Islamic leaders with ties to terrorism. In 2003, Moran, then a regional whip in the House of Representatives, was punished by House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi after he suggested Jews were responsible for the push for war against Iraq.
Back to the voter fraud thing. Notice here that there is not just a plan but obviously a safety net in spite of the new Virginia laws. Human nature. If you make it to easy for everyone then it is too easy to act fraudulently. We go from the 'how to'...
Moran suggests creating fake utility bills to serve as voter ID. But he warns that there will be “a lot of voter protection” at the polling places to enforce the identification laws.

“So, if they just have the utility bill or bank statement – bank statement would obviously be tough … but faking a utility bill would be easy enough,” Moran says.

The reporter asks: “How would you do that?”

“I mean, I would just find, I don’t know,” Moran replies. “I guess. …”

“Microsoft Word and type it up,” offers the reporter.
...to the 'safety net'...
Moran emphasizes that the poll workers will be “trained up” on the new law to protect voters and “be cracking down.”

If there’s any trouble, he says, an Obama for America lawyer, or another Democrat lawyer, will be on hand to provide help, he said.

“You’ll have somebody in house, that if they feel that what you have is legitimate, they’ll argue for you,” Moran says.

But he warns the reporter that the utility bill has “got to look good.”
...to the advice on making the fraud safer...
Later, at the Arlington County Democratic Party office, Moran advises the reporter to contact the registered voters on the list to make sure they don’t plan to cast a ballot Nov. 6. He suggests obtaining the information by posing as a pollster.
Again, this is not an isolated incident. The reporter is working for Project Veritas and has had interesting results just this year alone.
As WND reported, earlier this month O’Keefe’s team captured on video a regional director of the voter mobilization group launched by Barack Obama, Organizing for America, helping an undercover reporter vote for the president in two states.
And wait, there's more.
This year, Project Veritas says it has been conducting an ongoing series of investigations in more than a dozen states “demonstrating the ease with which election fraud can be committed and legitimate voters can be disenfranchised.”

The group’s previous effort in Texas, New Jersey, New York and Connecticut shows Obama campaign workers, including Organizing for America Regional Field Director Stephanie Caballero, helping people who declare they want to commit election fraud. The investigation was inspired by a column by WND columnist Chuck Norris.
Just when you thought it was safe to say that elections are safe...
In April, a Project Veritas investigator was offered the ballot of Attorney General Eric Holder at a polling place.
Think carefully as you look at Question 2 on your Minnesota ballot this year. Think carefully as you try to pull the lever against safer elections. Think carefully how comfortable you are with the system. If your opposing political party controlled the area you live in would you want the present system of not being required to do anything but sign your name on the list of registered voters? And then relying on a partisan Secretary of State office to validate everything?
