Who keeps funding these stupid propaganda videos made by James O’Keefe? The guy isn’t even very good at lying, and he certainly is a very sorry excuse for a journalist.
His latest video, which you can watch here (if you can stand to), he harasses two men claiming that they voted in North Carolina elections even though they are not US Citizens.
The problem? Both of them are indeed US citizens, which was easily verified (O’Keefe didn’t bother to even try to check that). For example, O’Keefe points to court records showing that one man was excused from jury duty in 2010 because he was not a US citizen. Therefore, his voter registration in December 2011 must be fraudulent. It doesn’t occur to O’Keefe that the man was naturalized as a US citizen in early 2011. And it doesn’t stop O’Keefe from calling the man’s home repeatedly and showing up at the his house and harassing him.
The second man O’Keefe accuses of voting despite not being a US citizen? He’s been a citizen for decades. There’s even an article in a major newspaper identifying the man and his wife as naturalized citizens, but did O’Keefe even do a simple Nexis search? Of course not.
One or both of these men smeared by O’Keefe needs to sue him into oblivion.
O’Keefe also falls back on one of his stupid tricks, having actors dress up in silly costumes and go to a polling station and falsely claim to be other registered voters. So it appears that the only actual voter fraud in the video was done by O’Keefe and his associates. They should be arrested for fraud.
Of course, the video had comments disabled when it was posted, so anyone watching it has no way to know that it is slanderous and misleading.
