Idiot Propagandist James O'Keefe Screws Up Voter 'Fraud' Stunt: His 'Dead' Voter is Still Alive
Last week conservative "film-maker" James O'Keefe pulled another supposedly muckraking stunt, attempting to prove that voter fraud is rampant by having colleagues commit voter fraud in the New Hampshire primary by obtaining ballots using the names of dead people. What O'Keefe and his pals succeeded in doing was bringing an investigation against them, pissing off a number of local officials and injuring the families of the recently dead.
On the other hand, they also succeeded in showing just how hapless they are, and by extension pretty much anybody trying to carry through the kind of conspiracy to commit fraud they were trying to prove exists. Here's just one more example of that from TPM.
Robert William Beaulieu is 23-years-old, lives in Nashua, New Hampshire, and is a registered Democrat. He’s also very much not dead.
But you wouldn’t have known that if you watched the lastest undercover sting video from James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, which featured a man with an Irish accent attempting to obtain a ballot on behalf of a Robert Beaulieu who lives on Cassandra Lane.
That’s the home University of New Hampshire graduate Robert W. Beaulieu, pictured above, shares with his parents. Robert P. Beaulieu, unrelated, died a few months back at the age of 84, and is apparently the man Project Vertitas’ investigator intended to impersonate. By all appearances, they got the wrong guy.
“I found out they were actually talking about me and not the man who passed away in October,” Robert W. Beaulieu told TPM. “The funny thing is, if they’d done any research, they would have found out the guy’s middle name is Paul and the guy specifically goes looking for William.”
Beaulieu said that he'd been in touch with the attorney general's office about the issue, "but said he was brushed off. 'I think they just want it to go away,' he said."
It shouldn't just go away, because these guys committed a felony by obtaining ballots in other people's names. Daily Kos and People for the American Way don't want the issue to be dropped. You can sign the petition, calling on Attorney General Delaney and U.S. Attorney Kacavas to investigate O'Keefe.
