The son of Representative Jim Moran (D-VA) resigned this afternoon following the release of a video from James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas showing him scheming to commit voter fraud with an undercover investigator.
Pat Moran is the field director for his father’s reelection campaign. Project Veritas has conducted several investigations already this year into voter fraud. According to Project Veritas, Moran advised using utility bills to commit voter fraud:
When approached by an undercover investigator for advice on how to steal the votes of more than 100 people, Moran advised falsifying documents to satisfy Virginia’s new voter ID law. He said, “Bank statement obviously would be tough, but they can fake a utility bill with ease.”
Moran went on to clarify that, “You’d have to forge it.”
Announcing the release, James O’Keefe said, “This is the most damning evidence to date of the scope of voter fraud in this country. Patrick Moran is not only the son of an 11-term Congressman, but is also the Field Director on his father’s re-election campaign.
“If anyone should be opposed to voter fraud it’s him. Yet he actively encouraged our investigator to forge documents and pose as a pollster to disenfranchise registered voters in Virginia, Washington, D.C. and Maryland.”
According to TPM, Pat Moran has now resigned, writing “Effective immediately, I have resigned from the Moran for Congress campaign.”
