A regional director of the voter mobilization group launched by Barack Obama, Organizing for America, has been captured on video helping an undercover reporter cast a ballot for the president in two states.
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.
The group’s latest 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.
In the new video, Project Veritas has a hidden camera on an undercover reporter who poses as a voter at the Organizing for America headquarters in Houston, Texas.
The reporter, in two separate visits, Sept. 7 and Oct. 1, tells Caballero she has a voter registration card in Florida, noting it’s a battleground state, and she also wants to vote in Texas.
“Keep it! Keep it!” Caballero interjects in the first visit, referring to the Florida voter registration. “So you’re gonna vote, umm, yeah, vote by ballot?
Reporter: “I’m gonna vote by ballot, and then I have mine here (in Texas), too.”
The reporter then emphasizes the importance of doing everything possible to ensure that Obama wins.
Caballero offers to print out a ballot that the reporter can mail in to Florida.
“Oh my God, this is so funny,” Caballero says. “It’s cool though.”
Project Veritas discovered Caballero is a salaried employee of the Democratic National Committee, the parent of Organizing for America. OFA was founded after Obama’s inauguration to mobilize supporters in favor of his legislative priorities.
Commenting on the video, O’Keefe noted the reporter was even offered advice on how to avoid getting caught.
“These individuals showed no concern whatsoever when our investigators declared their intention to vote multiple times for President Obama,” O’Keefe said.
In the video, Caballero says when discussing the possibility of getting caught, “If anyone checks, say ‘I don’t know.’”
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.”
At an Organizing for America voter-registration table in Hackensack, N.J., a worker is seen in the latest video assisting an undercover reporter who declares his intent to vote both in Minnesota and in New Jersey.
In Central Park in New York City, an undercover reporter tells an OFA worker: “I’m gonna vote in both places, probably, so Mitt Romney does not take New York or Minnesota.”
“Nice,” the worker replies.
In New Haven, Conn., when a helpful OFA worker learns that the undercover reporter posing as a Democrat intends to vote twice, he is told to take as many registration forms as he likes.
