Guerrilla filmmaker James O’Keefe strikes again, and this time his goal is to prove that political campaigns willingly overlook election fraud.
In a new undercover video (below), North Carolina election officials were caught offering ballots to O’Keefe, who visited more than 20 polling locations in Raleigh, Durham and Greensboro, North Carolina, with the names and addresses of “inactive” voters who hadn’t participated in elections for years, the Daily Mail reports.
“I just sign this and then I can vote?” he asked one poll worker in the 6-minute clip. “Yep,” she replies.
O’Keefe’s filmmaking résumé includes famously shutting down ACORN, dressing up as Osama bin Laden and crossing the Rio Grande from Mexico to the U.S., and catching people on camera admitting they sold taxpayer-provided cellphones.
However, he told the Daily Mail that this latest undercover video at several polling places in North Carolina was a little different.
“Of all of the undercover investigations I've conducted, this was by far the easiest,” he said Monday.
“They were willing to pass out fraudulently obtained ballots like it was Halloween candy.”
O’Keefe’s Project Veritas Action organization began its investigation into North Carolina election politics last week, filming Democratic campaign workers saying they would help illegal immigrants vote for incumbent Senator Kay Hagan.
This time he wanted to see how easy it was to vote fraudulently in the name of another person. He was given 20 ballots at more than 20 polling locations before two officials finally asked O’Keefe to provide I.D.
“They wanted to protect the system,” O’Keefe says in the video. “They had to break the rules to do it.”
According to The Blaze, Sen. Hagan is in a very tight battle with Republican Thom Tillis in North Carolina, citing that the latest RealClearPolitics average has Hagan up by .7 percent.
