Second O’Keefe video shows Dem operative boasting about voter fraud — video

Printed from:


The latest release from James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas shows a Democratic operative apparently boasting about engaging in voter fraud and using various tactics to avoid prosecution.

The video primarily features Scott Foval, now-former field director for Americans United for Change, describing various tactics he allegedly uses to engage in voter fraud. Based on the video, Foval is apparently describing tactics for bringing in voters from out of state.


Project Veritas’ undercover reporter apparently got Foval to talk by pitching his own, made-up idea for having people illegally vote around the country using fraudulent pay stubs and home addresses.

In the video, Foval says he tries to think like a prosecutor, and structures his get-out-the-vote methods to be as difficult to prosecute as possible.

“I think backwards from how they would prosecute if they could, and then try to build out the method to avoid that,” Foval says.

Foval then talks in detail about bringing in people to vote, but having them all arrive in individual cars in order to avoid literally “busing” people in to vote.

“It’s a pretty easy thing for Republicans to say, ‘Well, they’re bussing people in!’” Foval says. “Well, you know what? We’ve been bussing people in to deal with you fuckin’ assholes for fifty years, and we’re not going to stop now … I mean I grew up with that idea. They used to bus people out to Iowa. If they needed people there we’d bus people out to Iowa.”

Foval says to avoid the high profile that comes with using a literal bus, he instead organizes voters to use their own cars, are given rental cars to use, or are even assisted in obtaining used cars at auction.

“You use shells,” he says. “Use shell companies. Cars come in from one company, the paychecks come from another. There’s no bus involved, so you can’t prove that it’s en masse, so it doesn’t tip people off.”

In another part of the video, Cesar Vargas, founder of the illegal immigrant advocacy group Dream Action Coalition, expresses an apparent willingness to help facilitate a voter fraud scheme. The Project Veritas reporter pitched the fraud scheme as a way to empower immigrants left disenfranchised by Republican policies, and Vargas seemed open to that reasoning.

“Let’s see who the next president is. If it – if it’s Donald Trump, it even makes more sense,” Vargas says. “If it’s Secretary Clinton, and the voter ID laws are losing and we have much more opportunity to vote, and we have immigration reform, it’s not going to be as significant, right?”

On the other hand, another man in the video, Bob Creamer of Democracy Partners, is wary of helping Project Veritas with their made-up scheme, saying it sounds like a “big voter fraud scheme.”

The new video comes one day after a previous O’Keefe video showing Foval and other activists taking credit for disruptions at Donald Trump rallies, including violent protests in Chicago that resulted in a Trump rally being canceled entirely. In the opening of Tuesday’s video, O’Keefe accuses the mainstream media of ignoring his investigation because they fear retaliation from a Hillary Clinton White House.

O’Keefe has said more videos will be released in the run-up to election day in November.
