Obligatory Question of Day – How many “Eric Holders” can you fit in a voting booth?

Obligatory Question of Day – How many “Eric Holders” can you fit in a voting booth?

Not only don’t you need to show an i.d. to vote, apparently you don’t even need to verify you are the voter, you just need to ask for the voter’s ballot, then play dumb.

Via Breitbart:

In a new video (below) provided to Breitbart.com, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas demonstrates why Holder should stop attacking voter ID laws–by walking into Holder’s voting precinct and showing the world that anyone can obtain Eric Holder’s primary ballot. Literally.

The video shows a young man entering a Washington, DC polling place at 3401 Nebraska Avenue, NW, on primary day of this year–April 3, 2012–and giving Holder’s name and address. The poll worker promptly offers the young man Holder’s ballot to vote.

The young man then suggests that he should show his ID; the poll worker, in compliance with DC law, states: “You don’t need it. It’s all right. As long as you’re in here, you’re on our list, and that’s who you say you are, you’re okay.”

Best headline/quip of the day!

Holder could watch that video and still not see proof of fraud and would say so with a straight face.

If I correctly understand the procedures suggested in the video, only the first Eric Holder is permitted in the telephone booth…unless you show up at a different polling place.

Actually this brings up some nasty problems. Suppose Mr Issa was to ask Mr Holder to show up again for some questions.

So, a white guy that looks like Mr O’keefe shows up and asks “Is this where you expect Mr Holder to sit and testify?” If he then sits in the chair designated for Mr Holder, then we are compelled to accept him as Mr Holder. After all, we have video evidence that Mr Holder is a white guy that looks like James O’keefe.

It appears that Mr Issa should accept testimony from the white guy that looks like Mr O’keefe.

They are continuing a proud tradition of disenfranchising voters. This time, it’s not just Blacks, but everyone who opposes them. That is a natural and predictable progression.

Certainly there must be something in the VRA (Voting Rights Act) about a white man attempting to vote in a black man’s stead, thus denying him the right to vote.

If not, I’m sure there is something that can be construed to that affect

If not there’s got to be something in the federal criminal code…

How will the libs spin this?

Easy.

“The System worked”.

No ID was required, no voter fraud committed.

Professor, you should be a headline writer for the New York Post. Funny!

In the video the poll worker places a mark next to Eric Holder’s name…….

Makes me wonder if Holder himself went to cast a ballot and, if he did, shouldn’t someone, anyone? mention that he didn’t look like the first guy and demand to see his ID?

Never mind, silly question

This is hilarious. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

Thank God for James O’Keefe doing this stuff. Thank God for Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion. Thank God for the few bright points of sanity during these insane times.

    [sarcasm on] This is just another example of ambush journalism. Nothing to see here, move along! [sarcasm off]

      “It’s no coincidence that these so-called examples of rampant voter fraud consistently turn out to be manufactured ones.”

      Muggeriges First Law: there is no way that a writer of fiction can compete with real life for its pure absurdity.

        Mark Twain’s observation was “Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn’t.”

        Having a White guy take Holder’s place would be really funny. We’ve never had a case of “witness fraud”. Have we?

Tip line seems to be on the fritz

I’ll always send O’Keefe a donation for every video he releases.

The Left has always needed two things…. an ignorant electorate and a benefactor.

They continue to search for a fair and just master to provide provisions and remove risk. All means will justify that end.

Maybe the “voter” was a “White” Black man, like Zimmerman is a White Hispanic. What does Holder now say about voter fraud?

If there was a concerted effort by the Klan and or Neo Nazis to hit the polling places early and each try to vote in the place of a black person, say, once in 5 districts.

Would Holder still be against ID laws?

I voted in DC for over 20 years. Yes, I was a resident, was registered, and voted under my real name. 🙂 It used to amaze me that I didn’t even need to show my voter registration card, much less a photo ID. I used to see a lot of blank signature lines above and below my name in the voter registration book, together with their addresses. I could have simply read one of the names with no signature next to it and voted as that person. Since the polling places weren’t that far apart, it would be easy to make the rounds and vote multiple times. This story didn’t surprise me at all and I’m glad someone finally pointed it out.

Showing yet again that most of the ‘voter fraud’ needs to be made up by James O’Keefe.

    Um, in what way was this manufactured? The hole was there. He was given the ballot. Nothing but his honesty stopped him from voting with it.

can someone please explain to mr.holder that, of course, the incident was “manufactured”…how else could one possibly catch them in the act ? if a ‘real’ voter comes in, gets someone else’s ballot, votes and leaves, how would anyone ever know ?

    SushiAnn in reply to el polacko. | April 9, 2012 at 6:12 pm

    Seems like if I walked into my polling place to vote, and got told “Looks like you already voted”….that’s how ‘anyone would ever know’

    James O’Keefe, while not very good at unearthing any actual voter fraud, does know how to exist on the wingnut-welfare circuit.

    He pays himself a salary of $120,000/year to play his little video games. That way he doesn’t have to get an actual, you know, job or anything.

      DocWahala in reply to SushiAnn. | April 9, 2012 at 10:14 pm

      Typical… attack the person breaking the story, and not the actual issue.

      Instead of addressing Holder’s lame “there is no proof”, and “a problem that does not exist”, Sushi wants to attack O’Keefe.

      Granted, even if you remove the parts where O’Keefe shows three distinct polling booths, there were still three other clips from other news agencies showing the same thing, as well as at least 2 news print articles. And that’s just for this video. So much for Holder’s “there is no problem”.

      As for O’Keefe getting paide 120,000 dollars, this is what it tells me about Sushi – 1) again, not interested in addressing Holder, or even the problem, 2) seems to think making a large salary is a crime, 3) implies he is pandering to fear-mongers, and cares little about exposing a problem.

      Just come out and be honest Sushi – who looses when there is Voter ID? The American people? Or corrupt political machines? The people don’t loose. And it speaks volumes that it seems to always be the left which screams the loudest against voter id.

      DocWahala – remembers it takes ID to take the Bar Exam, to cash a 5 dollar check, and to even board an airplane. But according to Progressives – no ID is needed to vote. Who are they fooling?

      Seems like if I walked into my polling place to vote, and got told “Looks like you already voted”….that’s how ‘anyone would ever know’

      And if you didn’t vote? Then how would anyone know?

Well, I guess if it’s OK by the justice department to save other people the trouble of voting, we conservatives should all head down to the polls this next election and save lots of liberals the trouble of voting themselves. It’s not like the liberals would complain about it – they worked hard to make it legal.

    SushiAnn in reply to radiofreeca. | April 9, 2012 at 6:33 pm

    Sure…if you want to go to the trouble of figuring out my name and address, go wait in line, hope that you are there before I have already voted, and risk committing a federal crime, all for one vote out of thousands, tens of thousands, or millions….good luck with that.

    Pretty high risk strategy for a low reward or no reward at all.

    Much better strategy would be to just park a few blocks away, and use a laptop to hack into the easily hacked voting machines and change the outcome without ever going near a voting booth.

      Ragspierre in reply to SushiAnn. | April 9, 2012 at 6:42 pm

      Support, please, for your “hacking”.

      But, let’s not deal in purely fantastic hypotheticals.

      Why don’t you have the guts to put up some of the recent stories of voter fraud convictions around the nation.

      Now would be good.

      We’ll wait…

      Milhouse in reply to SushiAnn. | April 10, 2012 at 5:55 pm

      What risk? There is almost no risk at all. The very fact that almost nobody is ever caught proves that there is almost no risk at all.

Love seeing Mr. O’Keefe being Breitbart.
