James O’Keefe and Project Veritas are demonstrating once again how easy it is to perpetrate voter fraud in states that do not require voters to show photo identification.
Last week, O'Keefe and his team went to Vermont and had no trouble getting ballots for both living and dead voters.
"They assume we are the dead person, they assume we are the living person. By the way, this is even more outrageous than the dead one because in this case they're actually trampling on the rights of people who are living in the state. They're giving out ballots to the wrong people."
In contrast, they also tried to order alcohol in a bar and check into a Vermont hotel without showing ID. They were met with demands to present ID in both cases. They also feigned an attempt to apply for a civil union in the state. Again, they were asked to provide identification.
"The irony is they're calling the police on you if you don't have ID for a beer but they willingly give out ballots to vote to zombies and dead people and clones and beg you not to show ID."
O'Keefe explains how the operation stayed on the good side of the law and why he uses the "theater of the absurd" to make his points. O'Keefe also discusses how similar videos exposing the risk of fraud during the New Hampshire primary has already sparked new legislation there. And he offers us a glimpse of his next project.
