With just a few days until the 2014 midterm elections, filmmaker James O’Keefe of Project Veritas, an organization famous for exposing voter fraud, unearthed an epic Youtube exposing Democratic Party campaign operatives encouraging illegal immigrants to vote in North Carolina, home to one of the nation’s most competitive United States Senate elections. The National Review
reported on Thursday that O’Keefe had one of his employees pose as a non-citizen to ask Greg Amick, the campaign manager for Irwin Carmichael, the Democrat running for Mecklenburg County Sheriff, if he could vote illegally.
The Democratic Party operative told the undercover Project Veritas investigator that it was “fine” to vote even though he was a non-citizen. Amick could be arrested and convicted of a felony. Yet, he’s campaigning for a law enforcement official. Ironic isn’t it?
Watch the Youtube video:
Amick denies the accusations despite the video evidence.
O’Keefe is best known for exposing ACORN prostitution scandal in 2010. The 30 year old journalist also exposed NPR executive Ron Schiller in 2011 for trying to obtain donations from a Muslim group affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood, forcing his resignation.
Just last Friday, the Daily Caller reported that O’Keefe’s Facebook page was shutdown for about an hour after he exposed an official from Greenpeace, a radical environmentalist organization actively campaigning for U.S. Senator Mark Udall (D-CO). The official, Christen Topping, was caught on tape encouraging people to find election ballots in garbage cans of a “ghetto Aurora” neighborhood in Colorado.

For that, Greenpeace fired her.
John Fund of the National Review explains that O’Keefe and Veritas Project deserve a lot of credit for having the guts to go undercover and accomplishing what they set out to do:
“As with his expose of ACORN, James O’Keefe deserves credit for once again uncovering the potential for corruption at the ballot box while too many journalists keep their noses buried in campaign-finance reports. Both kinds of reporting are valuable, but O’Keefe appears to be a rare bird interested in ballot integrity.”
