NH Gov. Lynch on James O’Keefe Vote Fraud Stunt: ‘They Should Be Prosecuted’
James O’Keefe and his idiot squad (aka “Project Veritas”), who committed voter fraud in New Hampshire in order to help Republicans promote their “voter ID” laws across the nation, are being investigated by the US Attorney’s Office and the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office, and New Hampshire Gov. John Lynch is calling for them to be prosecuted “to the fullest extent of the law.”
CONCORD, N.H. — State and federal investigators are looking into a hidden camera video of people getting ballots to vote in the New Hampshire primary after giving poll workers the names of people who recently died.
The online video is from Project Veritas, an organization founded by conservative activist James O’Keefe. The group said it went into 14 state polling locations Tuesday with hidden cameras and names of people who died so recently that their names were still on the registered voter lists.
The group insisted it didn’t break any laws and didn’t claim to be another person when members gave the names of deceased people to poll workers. Gov. John Lynch said the group’s actions should be investigated.
“I think it is outrageous that we have out-of-staters coming into New Hampshire, coming into our polling places and misrepresenting themselves to the election officials, and I hope that they should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, if in fact they’re found guilty of some criminal act,” he said.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office and New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office are investigating the video.
