Man, did O’Keefe pick the right moment and the right state for this clip. By now everyone in conservative media has seen that bombshell Old Dominion study claiming that Democrat-heavy non-citizen votes may have delivered a Senate seat to Al Franken six years ago, which made a filibuster-proof majority possible for ObamaCare two years later. That same study claimed that Obama’s 2008 margin of victory in — ta da — North Carolina might also have been provided by non-citizens. And now here we are, five days away from a major midterm election in which control of the Senate hangs in the balance, and Kay Hagan’s leading Thom Tillis by one thin point in good ol’ NC. If she wins that race by a thousand votes, you’ll have confidence in the integrity of the outcome, won’t you?
More from John Fund, who (co-)wrote the book on voter fraud:
This month, North Carolina officials found at least 145 illegal aliens, still in the country thanks to the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, registered to vote. Hundreds of other non-citizens may be on the rolls.
A voter-registration card is routinely issued without any identification check, and undocumented workers can use it for many purposes, including obtaining a driver’s license and qualifying for a job…
The [Old Dominion] paper is consistent with other credible reports of non-citizen voting. For example, Colorado’s Republican secretary of state, Scott Gessler, unveiled a study in 2011 showing that almost 5,000 illegal aliens cast votes in the U.S. Senate election in that state in 2010.
In 2005, the U.S. Government Accountability Office found that up to 3 percent of the 30,000 people called for jury duty from voter-registration rolls over a two-year period in one of the 94 current U.S. district courts were non-citizens.
One remarkable thing about this otherwise unremarkable midterm election is how many Senate races are tight as can be into the final week, notwithstanding broad expectations that Republicans will win six seats or better. The Hagan/Tillis race isn’t the closest in the RCP poll average: Right now, David Perdue leads Michelle Nunn by 0.5 points in Georgia and Greg Orman leads Pat Roberts by 0.9 points in Kansas. Other races with slightly wider margins seem to be tightening: Scott Brown trails Jeanne Shaheen by two points in the New Hampshire poll average but the last two polls taken their have shown him tied and leading by a point, respectively. If Democrats eke out a razor-thin victory in one of these four, some Republican’s going to have a heck of a recount challenge thanks to the Old Dominion authors.
