I’ll give Donald Trump props for at least one thing. He has and still is causing the needle to move on some very important issues which would otherwise get little press.
Early on it was illegal immigration and building the wall. To his credit he brought that topic to the forefront. Then it was the Muslim/refugee issue. Again, he spearheaded the attention brought to the subject.
And now, thanks to The Donald’s recent debate declaration about shady electioneering, everyone is talking about voter fraud. And just like every other political topic, battle lines have been drawn.
The ones who are having the fraud perpetrated on them, the Republicans, are raising alarms all over the nation and the ones perpetrating the fraud, the Democrats, are saying its all much ado about nothing.
But then you go back, watch and listen to the two senior democrat operatives (and others) highlighted in James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas video, and anyone with a brain must conclude that these two will do and have already done anything to get Hillary elected.

Evidently Colorado has been working hard to obtain the crown of biggest election cheaters in the nation. They have some stiff competition, but with Governor John Hickenlooper’s 2013 signing of a new election law, I’m sure they feel confident.
The 2013 law has effectively nullified Election Day in Colorado. All ballots are now mailed to voters far in advance. Of course one can’t just mail back the ballot. According to the Jefferson County election website, “You must seal your ballot in the official return envelope”, and then one can mail it in.
But is there another option if you choose not to mail in your ballot? Why yes… yes there is. You may drop off your ballot at any one of many 24-hour, undoubtedly unmanned drop-off sites.
Colorado Common Cause thinks this is a great idea, saying that, “Under the new law, every registered voter will receive a mail ballot and it will be their decision on how to cast their vote. Voters can mail back their ballot, drop it off, or vote at a voting service center during early voting or on Election Day.”
The ‘one person, one vote’ rule is one of the cornerstones of democracy, or is supposed to be.
And political activist James O’Keefe is determined to prove that the doctrine is at real risk of being frequently flouted in the U.S.
In a video for O’Keefe’s Project Veritas website, a man successfully registers to
vote under the name of Attorney General Eric Holder at a Washington D.C. polling station.
While it is not a legal requirement to use photo ID in the state, the ‘voter’ demonstrates how easy it is to receive a ballot under someone else’s name – even a high profile one such as the Attorney General’s.
The man in the video approaches the administration desk and asks: ‘Do you have an Eric Holder [on the list]?’
When the mystery man, who appears to be filming the event from a hidden camera, asks if they need to see ID, the official says it’s not necessary.
‘You don’t need it, it’s OK,’ he says.
And continues with ‘As long as you are in here, you are on the list.’
O’Keefe has previously challenged the Attorney General on voter fraud, asking why there are not stricter voter ID laws.
You are only legally required to show photo ID in Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.
Clearly O’Keefe believes this should be extended to all states.
In January, he was prosecuted for filming an election at the New Hampshire primary, where members of his crew obtained nine different ballots under the name of one recently-deceased local resident.
O’Keefe also received three years’ probation after attempting to infiltrate the office of Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu in 2010.
Nymag.com points out that ‘there is no documented wave or trend of individuals voting multiple times, voting as someone else or voting despite knowing they are ineligible.’ The website claims that you are just as likely to be killed by lightning as you are to attempt to submit a false vote, but were unable to produce such documentation to back their claim.
