Skip to comments.CONGRESSMAN JIM MORANíS SON CAUGHT ON TAPE TEACHING VOTE FRAUD TECHNIQUES
Posted on 10/24/2012 11:45:38 AM PDT by neverdem
A new undercover video from James O’Keefe and Project Veritas shows Pat Moran, son of longtime incumbent congressman Jim Moran (D-VA) and field director for his father’s re-election campaign, instructing a supporter in how to use fraudulent documents to cast a hundred illegal votes:
Note that Project Veritas prominently includes the unedited raw footage of this encounter, to counter the usual whines about false editing. There’s not much question about what happens here. An undercover operative posing as a very enthusiastic supporter says he’s got a hundred names of people who probably aren’t going to vote, and he wants to cast their ballots for them.
Moran is “initially lukewarm about the idea of voting on others’ behalf,” as narrator O’Keefe puts it, suggesting that a legitimate “get out the vote” effort would be a better investment of effort… but he’s quite willing to give some helpful advice for evading the flimsy existing voter identification procedures. He’s even got tips for making sure that the prospective targets for ballot theft are truly “inactive” voters, rather than people who already voted early. It’s obviously a subject he’s given some thought to. And by the end of the conversation, he’s a lot less “lukewarm” about the idea. In fact, he thinks it’s pretty funny.
Time for some more New York Times editorials about how vote fraud never happens, better voter identification is unnecessary, and anyone who cares about protecting the integrity of our electoral system is just a racist who wants to suppress the minority vote!
Project Veritas has already gotten a high-ranking Obama campaign employee fired for her willingness to engage in vote fraud. Is Jim Moran going to fire his son now?
Can this fall under the RICO Act for organizing voter fraud?
Why am I not surprised?
Yet the left continue to bray that there is no voter fraud.
James OKeefe you magnificent bastard!
I love James O’Keefe!
Somebody needs to go to jail.
Gosh, I wonder where he learned all those techniques?
Hey Moran: gotcha.
What is almost as pathetic as this democrat scumbag is the fact only obscure websites like humanevents.com picks this up.
This should be on all the main news websites and TV News programs. Maybe Fox News will show it?
Maybe Obama will now put Okeefe in jail as Obama put that film maker who made “Innocence of Muslims” video that supposedely caused Muslims to attack. As far as I know that film maker is still in jail. This is a socialist dictatorship this POS communist Muslim must go.
There must be 1,000 Dem voter fraud cases for every Repub one, and the “Republican voter fraud” are always the Dems lying about it.
I would love to see Moran in jail.
Reporter: Do you know two people Can you give me two names to help us with that? Two names of people who are fervent, who maybe I can trust?
Moran: I dont know. Its going to be tough. Its going to be tough with the you got to stuff that card.
Reporter: Okay. He actually double voted in 2008 and got away with it.
Moran: Did he?
Moran: (Laughs) So its going to be with the new voter ID laws as well
Reporter: Hes got a few in D.C. Hes got some in Maryland as well.
Moran: And I imagine hell be using
Reporter: You and me.
Moran: Yeah. But like utility bills or something like that. Hell need bills. Hell need something with the name and their address on it.
Reporter: Hes telling me if theyre going to be hesitant to enforce it. Hes telling me its a law but theres law and then theres enforcement.
Moran: And there will be a lot of voter protection. So if they just have the utility bill or a statement (inaud.) will obviously be tough but they can fake a utility bill with ease.
Reporter: How would you do that?
Moran: I mean I would just buy (inaud.)
Reporter: Microsoft Word and type it up.
Moran: Yeah, something like that. I dont know, but thats tough man. I mean, like I feel like all the energy that youre going to be putting into this, I think it would be much better suited finding out with just the in place GOTB (ph.) stuff, because all that stuff youre kind of getting people that havent voted in a long time and that energy that youd be putting in in trying to like ensure that it went through without a hitch and the risk to your name, I feel like plug it in and going to some underperforming districts.
Theres a push down in Mount Vernon and like Prince William and places like that where OFA is trying to get it going, but they, you know, its largely minority population, people that just havent been plugged in and people that have been plugged in like Republican districts and theyre just not enthused.
At this moment this video is being posted to thousands of pages on the decidedly not obscure website known as Facebook. I will be doing that myself shortly so my lib FB Friends who have told me repeatedly that photo id laws are only intended to suppress minority voting will see another side of the story.
We should give this guy an honorary Breitbart award.
Seriously, we should nominate and award an individual or organization; I nominate O’Keefe.
Also Hannity will likely pick this up.
The only thing the left can do against James O’Keefe is Alinsky tactics and nothing more. his videos speak for themselves.
James OKeefe for POTUS 2016.
Young & EXPERIENCED.
There is a large currently vacant jail in western Illinois that is just begging for occupants. I suggest we let Obama who proposed it and all of his minions populate it.
It’s ridiculous. Moran was asked questions and he answered but always saying it would be hard to get around the law. It was obvious he was just answering questions and also said it would be better to get those people to the polls. I instructed in election law and if I had been asked those questions, I would have said the same thing. Explaining how something might be done, does not mean one would do it.
This film guy needs to be spanked and sent home to mother.
Our “elections” are a joke. We are now a true banana republic.
“Just answering questions”? You don’t just answer those kinds of questions, especially when you’re a campaign manager. You say get the hell out of here with that crap before I call the cops!
He’s my Congresscritter. I live in one of the deepest blue districts in Northern Virginia, so he’s as safe here as in his mama’s arms. In fact, this revelation is probably a career enhancer.
Drudge has it up too.
I think you’re right. Moran proved that he didn’t care, he gave advice but he never crossed the line of telling the guy he should do it. Close but no cigar.
The Voldemort of FR claims there was a meeting of 5 powerful people - including Soros.
He was told that there wouldn’t be any stealing of the election this time. Just sit down and keep the money they let him have.
Fact or fiction???
Boehner? Boehner? Boehner? Bueller?
who is our voldemort and how did i miss out on this? heck i miss QUIDAM, didn't realize we had anyone even remotely as intriguing any more!
I just hope it follows his M.O. of collecting dozens of recorded stings, releasing one, getting their response (e.g. He was just instructing on election law, he is not affiliated with the Obama campaign, etc)... and then release the next one with an Obama staffer providing fake docs. One can dream!
I wouldn't even call it advice - he told what the law was about ID and said that information would have to be faked. It was obvious he has never done that as the fake reporter asked him how to do it and Moran didn't know, said it would be hard to do.
I think Moran was just stringing the guy along and at the end Moran was laughing about it.
Anyone who works in elections, knows what their state law is about ID and what they would have to do to get around that. What Moran told him is not secret information. It can be found in their laws which can be accesssed by going to their Secretary of State website and clicking on the law.
That describes what ID is acceptable so one could pick the ID he/she wants to fake.
It's a stupid idea as one would likely end up in prison, not jail. Faking one is as bad as faking 100 under the law.
Requiring a picture ID is the answer to a lot of voting problems as one would have to fake a picture voter ID card and that would be extremely difficult.
That would be good. It just might happen. In any case Pat Moran revealed himself to be a rather sleazy character. And not too bright not to have told the guy to beat it right at the start.
It sounded to me like he was giving him advice.
I “friended” Olivia Hussey (yes, THAT actress) on FB...
She posts all kinds of liberal crap that I usually don’t pay any attention to. But today she posted a Reuters map and article proclaiming how Obama was going to win in a landslide...
Of course the usual ragtag libtard friends were commenting “I pray so”, blah, blah, blah.
So I commented that “I believe so to, with followers like this:” then attached this article.
I can’t wait to see the barrage of comments that follow and her possibly “unfriending” me
It is he who must not be named because FR does not like him.
Just wait. James O'Keefe will face charges of attempt to commit a conspiracy!
The acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree.
After I looked at the video, I had a similar reaction, but the appearance was enough.
Project Veritis will be very busy over the next few weeks.
Why are you pinging the Admin Moderator?
Because I had second thoughts about the story since I finally checked the video, that it might be more hype than substance, and I said so in a report abuse message. I thought I should now let whomever know that Moran’s son had since resigned.

That is interesting. Thanks for updating the story. Let it all out, FReepers are here to slice and dice from every angle as always.
I think you're the one who needs to be spanked.
That’s totally different - apples and oranges.
That’s totally different - apples and oranges.
Never fear. Libs are having UN observers monitoring the election for fraud. But only right wing fraud.
Apparently you didn’t watch the video very closely because that is exactly what happened. He shows the guy a bag full of names and addresses.
“I would love to see Moran in jail.”
Virginia has a pretty good attorney general, Ken Cuccinelli. I’m surprised Moran hasn’t been arrested yet.
If you watch the whole thing...I get the impression that Moran’s son never took the interview guy serious and gave a sarcastic answer. On the scale of the video being worth anything....I’d give it 1.5 stars at best.
