Following a video exposing a salaried employee of the DNC encouraging and helping a woman commit voter fraud the DNC has decided to fire the Texas worker.
The video was shot in the Houston office of Organizing for America which is an arm of the Democratic National Committee featured regional field director Stephanie Caballero helping a young woman who explicitly stated she wanted to vote in both Texas and Florida.
During the video Caballero goes out of her way to help the undercover reporter even going so far as to print a ballot up for her despite her saying she is registered to vote in Florida. She then goes on to instruct the worker on how to get away with the fraud by saying she needs to simply say “I don’t know” when questioned by officials.
Melanie Roussell, a spokeswoman for the DNC told TPM Muckraker that in this case they decided to go ahead and fire the worker.
“There is obviously a history here of making selective use of taped material, and we will certainly not vouch for the completeness of what was released,” Roussell told TPM. “However, what we saw was enough for us to take the action that we did.”
The video was part of James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas which has also captured undercover video of ACORN, a controversial national community organizing group with ties to Obama engaging in voter registration fraud.
Earlier this year Project Veritas revealed how easy it was to commit voter fraud when a white reporter was able to obtain a ballot in Attorney General Eric Holder’s name without having to produce any proof of identity.
The reporter did not actually commit voter fraud because he did not actually cast the ballot but the video reveals he would have been able to do so if he desired.
Critics say the video is nothing more than a stunt and that voter fraud does not happen because the penalties for it are so severe. However, as the video revealed even if the fraud were discovered it would be virtually impossible to find the person who committed the voter fraud since he did not have to present any identification.
