    "Cate said a "significant majority have gone to Republican voters, but not exclusively. We've got Democrats who received the letters, we've got independents."

      I never reallly thought that voter fraud could steal an election, but this sucker's gonna be tight..  Voter fraud should damn near be prosecuted as hard as treason.  Firing squad of one.  Me ... I'd use a bow and arrow too because I suck at using them, and it's probably take all day to get the kill shot.  Wow, that was pretty extreme! big_smile

    Red-handed! Video snags Dem boss plotting vote fraud by Art Moore

    Congressman's son advises forging ID, relying on party lawyers

    The son of Rep. Jim Moran, D-Va. – who serves as the field director for his father’s campaign – has been caught on video advising an undercover reporter how to fraudulently cast ballots in the name of registered voters by forging utility bills and relying on the assistance of Democrat lawyers.

    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 and provided the video exclusively to WND.

    Jim Moran, 67, a controversial figure in Congress, has been criticized for his collaboration with Islamic leaders with ties to terrorism. In 2003, Moran, then a regional whip in the House of Representatives, was punished by House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi after he suggested Jews were responsible for the push for war against Iraq.

    His son, Patrick Moran, was videoed by the undercover reporter Oct. 8 at the Cosi Restaurant in Arlington, Va., just across the Potomac River from the nation’s capital.

    The Project Veritas video shows the undercover reporter posing as a citizen concerned that the Democratic Party might lose power in the upcoming Nov. 6 elections. The reporter explains to Moran that he had been apolitical but got his girlfriend pregnant and was concerned about the political threat to the funding of “reproductive services.”

    The reporter, who approaches Moran at the restaurant, says he has a friend who found the names of 100 Virginia residents who have been registered the past three elections but have not voted.

    Moran initially thinks the reporter’s intent is to offer the registered voters a ride to the polling place on Election Day to ensure they cast their ballots.

    But the reporter states he and his friend actually want to vote in the name of the Virginia residents.

    The conversation goes like this:

    Reporter: There are 100 people who don’t vote. He’s looking for two guys to help him with. …

    Patrick Moran: Crank it out?

    Reporter: Yes. He’s got a van and he and me were going to go around.

    Patrick Moran: Rally these people up and get them to the polls.

    Reporter: Well, he was actually going to get in a van and vote for them.

    Patrick Moran: Ohhhh

    Reporter: I know, but –

    Reporter: It’s scary, but I’m not. … I don’t want to lose, and I’m frightened.

    Patrick Moran: Yeah.

    Later, Patrick Moran explains to the undercover reporter that new state voter ID laws will make his effort more challenging.

    In Virginia, a new law requires identification but allows a broad range of forms of verification, including utility bills, bank statements and library cards.

    Rep. Jim Moran, D-Va.

    Moran suggests creating fake utility bills to serve as voter ID. But he warns that there will be “a lot of voter protection” at the polling places to enforce the identification laws.

    “So, if they just have the utility bill or bank statement – bank statement would obviously be tough … but faking a utility bill would be easy enough,” Moran says.

    The reporter asks: “How would you do that?”

    “I mean, I would just find, I don’t know,” Moran replies. “I guess. …”

    “Microsoft Word and type it up,” offers the reporter.

    “Yeah, something like that,” says Moran.

    Moran emphasizes that the poll workers will be “trained up” on the new law to protect voters and “be cracking down.”

    If there’s any trouble, he says, an Obama for America lawyer, or another Democrat lawyer, will be on hand to provide help, he said.

    “You’ll have somebody in house, that if they feel that what you have is legitimate, they’ll argue for you,” Moran says.

    But he warns the reporter that the utility bill has “got to look good.”

    Later, at the Arlington County Democratic Party office, Moran advises the reporter to contact the registered voters on the list to make sure they don’t plan to cast a ballot Nov. 6. He suggests obtaining the information by posing as a pollster.

    Earlier this month O’Keefe’s team captured on video a regional director of the voter mobilization group launched by Barack Obama, Organizing for America, helping an undercover reporter vote for the president in two states.

    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.”
