New Undercover Video: Did Congressman's Son Commit Voter Fraud?


James O'Keefe has struck again. O'Keefe is the guy who broke the big ACORN scandal with his undercover video reporting.

Now, he's out with a video that may land a Congressman's son in trouble for voter fraud. Watch below as Patrick Moran, the son of Virginia Rep. Jim Moran (and the Field Director for his father's campaign), is caught on tape talking to an undercover reporter about how to allegedly cast ballots deceitfully for registered voters.

Stay in the know. Get The Brody File Weekly

Folks, this is the new wave of reporting in this viral, social media world.

O'Keefe may be controversial in some circles and his tactics have been criticized by some, but you can't argue with the fact that he gets people's attention.

With the liberal mainstream media lacking when it comes to true investigative journalism, these type of videos will become the norm sooner rather than later.

Here's part of the transcript below:

Undercover Reporter: There are 100 people who don’t vote. He’s looking for two guys to help him with. …

Patrick Moran: Crank it out?

Undercover Reporter: Yes. He’s got a van and he and me were going to go around. …

Patrick Moran: Rally these people up and get them to the polls.

Undercover Reporter: Well, he was actually going to get in a van and vote for them.

Patrick Moran: Ohhhh

Undercover Reporter: I know, but –

Undercover Reporter: It’s scary, but I’m not. … I don’t want to lose, and I’m frightened.

Patrick Moran: Yeah.

Then later in the video there's talk about creating fake utility bills to serve as voter identification.

Patrick Moran: So, if they just have the utility bill or bank statement – bank statement would obviously be tough … but faking a utility bill would be easy enough.

Undercover Reporter: How would you do that?

Patrick Moran: I mean, I would just find, I don’t know, I guess. …

Undercover Reporter: Microsoft Word and type it up.

Patrick Moran: Yeah, something like that.

I doubt voters will be surprised that any of the Morans would entertain such a conversation.

However, reading the transcript, I do not find anything the younger Moran did that was illegal.

"I do not find anything the younger Moran did that was illegal." Do you find anything he did was wrong? I think that's the point; we're not prosecutors, we're people, people who don't want our votes watered down by activists. It's immoral.

So..you have a kid talking about what one "could do", while you have Republicans actually committing voter fraud in Ohio by registering Republicans in a wall mart parking lot and throwing away the democrats that register at that point? Nice...keep up the great "investiagative" journalism.

Of course the dems engage in voter fraud. Thats a given and I think we can all agree to that.

Pretty close if not over the line with this statement alone. Integrity would dictate reporting the fishing O'Keefe's character was doing to the proper authority. You will notice the progressive media has not come out with any news stories, in regard to any reports from progressive orginizaions complaining of inquiries to commit voter fraud. If I were approched and asked who to circumvent election laws, I would report the individual.

I early voted in West End, NC today and feel certain it is going on here too! I think we should take pictures of those suspected of voting with other people's names and turn them in to the Registrar of Elections so that they don't just go from polling place to polling place casting votes in place of people! The end does not justify the means like the political ruling class thinks it does.

The following was copied and pasted from Michigan state website: My problem is the last sentence....read on.
Do I need to show identification in order to vote?
Michigan does have a voter identification requirement at the polls. Voters are asked to present an acceptable photo ID such as a Michigan driver's license or identification card. Please note that voters who do not have an acceptable form of ID or failed to bring it with them to the polls still can vote. They simply sign a brief affidavit stating that they're not in possession of a photo ID. Their ballots are included with all others and counted on Election Day. **** This kinda meshes with that story.*** Why bother with Voter i.d. law anyways???

# RE: New Undercover Video: Did Congressman's Son Commit Voter Fraud?

I get so sick and tired of hearing that something wasn't "illegal" as if that is the standard bearer of what is right and what is wrong. I DO NOT CARE if it is legal, if someone did something IMMORAL or UNETHICAL that is the standard between right and wrong. Gambling, abortion, homosexuality and pornography are examples of reprehensible vices that are legal but completely immoral and unethical. So is lying, fraud and cheating and I make no distinction between those who do such things and those who support them.

Ican't believe that after all the voter fraud that has been leveled against the Republican Party that the 700 Club would endorse this type of set up. GOD knows your heart remember that and what ever spirit that was done in will be brought to light.

The person who made this video is trash. Moran was clearly uncomfortable with this from the beginning to the end, and was just trying to get rid of the pest. O'Keefe is a sick person. The thought of voter fraud would not have entered Moran's head unless this defective individual had thought it up.

This man is morally corrupt and bankrupt. I don't know if Jim Moran is the same, but if I were a voter in that district, I would definitely beware of voter fraud and I wouldn't vote for Jim Moran. Jim Moran is either oblivious to his son's immoral character, or his son is an image of him. All the more reason for voter identification and getting to know the candidates in your district to make an informed vote.

Entrapment??? This is what is being done to the US and all it's good citizens by the corrupt politicians. Call it what it really is and stop the lawyers words. It's pure CORRUPTION. IF the man was honest and told the undercover man to get lost and that what he was looking for was a fraudulent way of getting votes then great for America.

You're in favor of preventing voters from exercising their right to vote because of lack of ID cards, IN AMERICA! When in Africa, they're issuing their citizens ID cards for free so that they can vote. People like you give this 'greatest Democracy on earth' a bad name.

# RE: New Undercover Video: Did Congressman's Son Commit Voter Fraud?

The whole problem could be fixed by making everyone produce a picture ID, like it was before people became frauds. Everyone can afford an ID. If you want to vote bad enough get an ID. Leave off the Beer, the cigarettes or drugs for a few days and you can get an ID. If your Id has been suspended then you shouldn't be allowed to vote. It is so simple. Why is everything being changed, I have always had to present my Drivers License . If you don't have a car or don't drive get an Id. I have to produce my DL for almost everything. So what is the problem? The whole thing is stupid. No ID, No vote, understand? No subs, no illegals! I am disabled and I manage.

All I see/hear here is entrapment...the reporter constantly putting suggestions and words in his mouth as if the reporter is doing it and getting advice/affirmation...Patrick keeps referring to legality even tho going along rather passively with much of it...motive?? Seems a set-up to divert from who is really doing it!? ...make accusation...I'd say the reporter is the most dirty...human nature is not righteous!

Watching the video, it looks like he may have committed the crime of conspiracy to commit voter fraud. However, unlike the "official" statement out of Jim Moran's office, it is clear that Patrick is not "joking" and just kidding around with the person questioning him about committing voter fraud. It is clear from the video that Patrick is extremely interested in the voter fraud plan and engages in a lengthy conversation about it and offers a lot of advice. Shame on him.

I wonder how many voters didn't pay any attention? This same thing went on in 2008,
Democrats will do anything to win and Obama says TRUST ME. Not presidential material.
If everyone voted for Romney Obama would still win.
