Democrat Representative Jim Moran’s son Patrick was caught on video by the undercover cameras of James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, in which he encouraged the forging of documents to be used for voter fraud. Arlington County Police Department in Virginia has now launched a full criminal investigation into the matter.
The Arlington County Commonwealth Attorney’s Office and the Arlington County Police Department have been made aware of a video released yesterday allegedly depicting Patrick Moran, former Director of Field Operations for the Jim Moran for Congress campaign organization, assisting another to vote illegally.
The Arlington County Police Department has initiated a criminal investigation of this matter.
Here’s the video that got Moran in trouble.
When approached by an undercover investigator for advice on how to steal the votes of more than 100 people, Moran advised falsifying documents to satisfy Virginia’s new voter ID law. He said, “Bank statement obviously would be tough, but they can fake a utility bill with ease.”
Moran went on to clarify that, “You’d have to forge it.”
Announcing the release, James O’Keefe said, “This is the most damning evidence to date of the scope of voter fraud in this country. Patrick Moran is not only the son of an 11-term Congressman, but is also the Field Director on his father’s re-election campaign.
“If anyone should be opposed to voter fraud it’s him. Yet he actively encouraged our investigator to forge documents and pose as a pollster to disenfranchise registered voters in Virginia, Washington, D.C. and Maryland.”
For much of 2012, Project Veritas 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. And they’ve shown that no one is immune. In April, a Project Veritas investigator was even offered the ballot of Attorney General Eric Holder himself.
Moran, who was his father’s Field Director, resigned yesterday following the release of the video.
According to the police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck there will be a “thorough investigation” into the “election offense allegations” and that all parties will be involved in the investigation. He also said it would be irresponsible not to investigate the video and that any and all results will be turned over to the Commonwealth Attorney’ Office, which will decide whether to prosecute or not.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
