EXCLUSIVE: Follow Up On The Project Veritas Video Of OFA Employees Assisting On Voter Fraud

Earlier today, we saw James O’Keefe’s latest Project Veritas video that showed employees of Obama‘s Organizing For American in Houston assisting undercover videographers in voting multiple times in multiple states.

A follow up video has been released that shows several more OFA workers actively encourage voters to get registered in multiple states.

A related article today at Watchdog.org shows how these actions violate both federal and various state laws:

“It’s absolutely illegal to help someone double vote,” said Hans von Spakovsky, senior legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C. He cited 42 U.S.C.1973gg-10.

“A lot of people don’t realize that, in addition to everything that everyone knows about the National Voter Registration Act — that it allowed mail-in ballots and registration through vehicle licensing departments — the last part of the statute put in criminal penalties for fraudulent registration,” said von Spakovsky, who had not yet seen the video ….

…. The cases portrayed in the O’Keefe video are open to both federal and local prosecution, von Spakovsky said.

“The key is, and this is what you’ll see in the statute, if you double vote with a federal candidate on the ballot, you’ve violated federal law,” von Spakovsky said. “If the same ballot includes local candidates, that’s a violation of state law.”

As mentioned in our earlier article, these are not isolated incidents. It is deeply troubling that there is no safeguard against such actions.
