Navy Veteran’s Widow Shocked That Her Husband’s Name Was Used by James O’Keefe to Commit Fraud

Collateral damage in James O’Keefe’s right wing crusade

In the amoral universe of James O’Keefe and his political hack friends like Andrew Breitbart, it never matters how many innocent people are smeared or hurt on the way to one of their “scoops.”

But this story is heartbreaking, as the grieving widow of a recently deceased US Navy veteran was appalled to learn that her husband’s name had been used in O’Keefe’s cynical right wing scheme to fraudulently obtain ballots in New Hampshire: N.H. widow shocked by ploy at polls.

A grieving New Hampshire widow said she was stunned to learn her beloved husband’s identity was used for a political gotcha — just 10 days after his death.

“That’s awful,” Rachel Groux said. “Why should they use his name? They shouldn’t use anybody’s name — alive or deceased.”

Activist filmmaker James O’Keefe secretly recorded video showing his operative using Roger Groux’s name and address to obtain a Republican ballot at Manchester polls Tuesday. The U.S. Navy veteran died Dec. 31 at an assisted living home. His family held funeral services Monday, his widow said.

“Oh my God, I know what he would say, ‘Call the cops, call the police,’ ” Rachel Groux said.

Of course, the important objective is to give the Republican Party ammunition to help them pass voter ID laws, so why should James O’Keefe or Andrew Breitbart care about the feelings of a veteran’s grieving widow? She’s just collateral damage to them.
