Eric Holder and DOJ Punked in Video Sting

James O'Keefe, Project Veritas filmmaker showed how easy it is to fraudulently cast a ballot using someone else's name when no photo ID is required at polling stations. Recently, O'Keefe sent a PV assistant to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder's polling station at 3401 Nebraska Ave, NW, Washington, D.C. where Holder has been registered to vote for 29 years. Sans photo ID, the poll worker was willing and eager to give a Democrat ballot to the white male who asked if they had an "Eric Holder" on the voting roll. Using a hidden camera, the Project Veritas assistant recorded the event:

The transcript from National Review:
Man: “Do you have an Eric Holder, 50th Street?
Poll worker: “Let me see here.”
Man: Xxxx 50th Street.
Poll Worker: Let’s see, Holder, Hol-t-e-r, or Hold-d-e-r?
Man: H-o-l-d-e-r.
Poll Worker: D-e-r. Okay.
Man: That’s the name.
Poll Worker: I do. Xxxx 50th Street NW. Okay. [Puts check next to name, indicating someone has shown up to vote.] Will you sign there . . .
Man: I actually forgot my ID.
Poll Worker: You don’t need it; it’s all right.
Man: I left it in the car.
Poll Worker: As long as you’re in here, and you’re on our list and that’s who you say you are, we’re okay.
Man: I would feel more comfortable if I go get my ID, is it all right if I go get it?
Poll Worker: Sure, go ahead.
Man: I’ll be back faster than you can say furious!
Poll Worker: We’re not going anywhere.
At no time did the Project Veritas investigator identify himself as Eric Holder, so he was not illegally impersonating the Attorney General who is 61 years old, African-American and bears no resemblance to the young European-American in the video.

Project Veritas has released three previous videos on the subject of voter fraud in New Hampshire where poll workers handed out ballots to PV in the names of deceased voters; Minnesota gave ballots to PV investigators using the names "Tim Tebow" and "Tom Brady"; and Vermont where PV requested ballots using the names of living and deceased voters. Since those stings, Voter ID legislation has been passed in two of those states.

Opposition to voter ID, writes John Fund, exists despite the 2008 US Supreme Court 6-3 ruling upholding Indiana's photo ID requirement and an utter inability of opponents to produce any real-world evidence that anyone has been disenfranchised by a requirement to have photographic identification before voting. In fact, 75% of Americans support voter photo ID laws as a matter of course, including Hispanics and Blacks who recognize that a person cannot function in today's world without photo identification.

Earlier this month, PJ Media attempted to enter the offices of several organizations opposed to voter photo IDs and were turned away because they did not have photo IDs. The offices that refused entry were the Center for American Justice, Advancement Project, and Lawyer's Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. PJM could not even enter the Dept of Justice where Attorney General Eric Holder has his office, was accessible without photo ID.

Attempting to turn the tables on the Project Veritas evidence, AG Holder fired back through an anonymous DoJ spokesman telling Talking Points Memo, “It’s no coincidence that these so-called examples of rampant voter fraud consistently turn out to be manufactured ones.”

To which Breitbart's Ben Shapiro responds, "This is nonsensical. Obviously this wasn’t an actual case of voter fraud—O’Keefe and Project Veritas didn’t want to break the law. And obviously the situation is manufactured—it’s the only way to show that voter fraud is easy and plausible, since we presumablydon’t know when voter fraud takes place. That, in fact, is the point of the video: that voter fraud in this way is virtually undetectable and bears almost zero risk."

Liberals insist you show I.D. before you buy a pack of cigarettes yet insist that it's racist to demand an ID to prove your identity before you vote.

There is only one explanation: Dems know that vote fraud benefits them.

Yes, voter fraud tends to benefit the more ruthless group. It's little known, but voter fraud was one of the reasons that lead to the Gunfight at the OK Corral. As well as voter intimidation and the open street murder of a black man by the Democrat affiliated Cowboys who were former Confederates.
