Undercover activist offered A.G. Holder’s voter ballot



U.S. Deputy Attorney General James Cole refuses to answer questions about voter fraud video above


U.S. Deputy Attorney General James Cole refused to answer questions from the Washington Times affiliated America’s Morning News radio program regarding a video showing an undercover activist being offered Attorney General Eric Holder’s voter ballot.

A.G. Holder was the target of humiliation by conservative activist James O’Keefe. A video, produced by O’Keefe’s group, Project Veritas, shows a young Caucasian man equipped with a hidden camera enter a Washington D.C. polling station and ask a poll worker if Eric Holder was on the list of residents in the district who are allowed to vote at that polling place (h/t Breitbart.com)

The worker apparently does not know that it is the Attorney General, who is black that the man is referring to. The poll worker assumes the man is Eric Holder himself and offers the undercover individual a ballot to vote. Although the young man offers to show his I.D. that he says he left in his car, but the poll worker insists the man does not need it to vote. The man then leaves the polling area without checking in or voting.

The Justice Department responded to the video saying, “It’s no coincidence that these so-called examples of rampant voter fraud consistently turn out to be manufactured ones.”

34 states established voter ID laws in 2011, but DOJ promised civil rights organizations like La Raza, it would examine voter ID laws after the states released their redistricting plans. The DOJ’s civil rights division has already gone after Texas’, South Carolina’s, and Wisconsin’s voter ID laws.
