COMMENTARY James O’Keefe: American hero POSTED BY JUDSON PHILLIPS | JANUARY 16, 2012
James O’Keefe is famous for his videos that brought down ACORN. Liberals hate him for this. Now, he has done something else great.
For years, we conservatives have ranted about liberal vote fraud. The left has done everything in its power to make it easier to steal elections with vote fraud. Liberals fight tooth and nail to keep any provision that protects the integrity of the voting system from becoming law.
The left and its friends in the media have dismissed claims by real Americans that vote fraud is easy and occurs a lot.
James O’Keefe and other activists went on the day of the New Hampshire Republican Primary and asked for ballots in the names of recently deceased people. Only one time were they stopped, only because the election official personally knew the deceased person. Other than that, they received numerous ballots. They made certain they did not vote and did not violate the law. The videos are devastating indictments showing the ease with which voter fraud can be committed.
The Democratic response was predictable.
Instead of being shocked at how easy it was to fraudulently obtain ballots, they were outraged that the conservative activists exposed their scam. The New Hampshire Democratic Party, instead of calling for tightening voter identification laws so that fraud becomes much harder, wants to see James O’Keefe and his colleagues prosecuted.
Nashua City Clerk Paul Bergeron is outraged that one of the people James O’Keefe and his associates chose had only died ten days earlier. Bergeron called it immoral and unethical. What does he think voter fraud is? Would he be as outraged if someone had actually cast that ballot?
As with all liberals, their outrage is selective.
Last year, New Hampshire’s Republican controlled state legislature passed a Voter ID law. New Hampshire had a Democrat governor and can you guess what happened? Of course, he vetoed that bill.
If you want to be outraged, here is the video. It is absolute proof that VOTER ID laws are needed in all 50 states.
James O’Keefe is now being investigated, and if some liberals have their way, he may be prosecuted. James O’Keefe took some risks for our country, knowing how liberals would want to destroy him after he exposed their scams.
James O’Keefe is an American hero.
