O'Keefe Offered Ballot in Eric Holder's Name, Demonstrating Need for Voter ID Laws

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: James O'Keefe.  Let's go audio sound bite number two.  James O'Keefe is back at it.  He's Breitbart's videographer.  He's got this project called Veritas, V-e-r-i-t-a-s.  I've never heard it pronounced.  They might call it Veritas, don't know, but he's the guy that took his video cameras in and totally exposed ACORN.  What he did, James O'Keefe, took a hidden camera into a polling place where Eric Holder lives.  O'Keefe is white.  He told 'em he was Holder and asked for a ballot or asked to see if he was registered or what have you, wanted to register.  Let's listen to the video.  This will explain the whole thing. 

O'KEEFE:  Hello.  Do you have an Eric Holder?

POLL WORKER:  (Bleep) out here (Bleep).

O'KEEFE:  Northwest.

POLL WORKER:  H-o-l-t-e-r?

O'KEEFE:  H-o-l-d-e-r.

POLL WORKER:  I do. (unintelligible) (Bleep).

O'KEEFE:  Northwest?  That's the address.

POLL WORKER:  Okay. You sign there.

O'KEEFE:  Actually, I forgot my ID.

POLL WORKER:  You don't need it.  It's all right.

O'KEEFE:  I left it in the car.

POLL WORKER:  As long as you're here, you're on our list, and that's who you say you are.

O'KEEFE:  I would feel more comfortable if I just had my ID.  Is it all right if I go get it?

POLL WORKER:  Sure, go ahead.

O'KEEFE:  I'll be back faster than you can say "furious."

POLL WORKER:  We're not going anywhere.

RUSH:  So James O'Keefe was allowed to call himself Eric Holder.  You didn't have to produce a photo ID.  Now, we gotta be very careful here.  He did not say he was Eric Holder.  He did not commit any fraud here.  He just asked if there was an Eric Holder, and the guy said, "Yeah."

"You need my ID?" 

"Nope, nope.  You don't need it.  It's all right." 

O'Keefe says, "I left my ID in the car." 

"As long as you're here, you're on the list, that's who you say you are." 

And O'Keefe says, "I'd feel far more comfortable if I just had my ID, is it all right if I go get it?" 

He says, "Go ahead.  I'll be back faster than you can say 'furious.'" 

And the poll worker said, "We're not going anywhere." 

 

Now, this is a profound embarrassment.  This notion, "faster than you can say 'furious,'" that's hilarious.  That is one of these great bits of satire, and this poll worker has no clue what he's talking about, Fast and Furious.  He has no clue what he's talking about.  But here's O'Keefe with some great behind-the-scenes investigative journalism, proving that it would be easy to commit vote fraud without a photo ID.  And Eric Holder, of course, the attorney general has been out in the country as many places as he can go saying we don't need a photo ID, a photo ID is racist, a photo ID is discriminatory. 

You can't participate in the American economy without a photo ID.  You cannot get on an airplane. I went to the hospital the other day to visit somebody. I couldn't get past the front desk without a photo ID.  I could not, and they took a picture of me to put on my little name tag or whatever.  You could not get past the front desk without a photo ID to go visit somebody in the hospital.  But here's O'Keefe, he walks right up to this polling place and makes this guy think he's Eric Holder, without saying so.  This guy doesn't even know who Holder is, apparently.  Which makes it all the better.  He was able, if he had wanted to, to register and vote as Eric Holder and nothing could have been done about it.  You can't buy cigarettes under the age of 26 without a photo ID.  The only place the American left tells you that you don't need a photo ID is the polling place, and that's the only place where it's discriminatory to have one.  Have you ever looked at it this way? 

This photo ID business.  Look at all the places in our economy where you need one before you can participate.  You can't get a credit card.  You can't use a credit card. You can't cash a check. You can't get on an airplane. You probably can't get on a train. You can't do anything.  You are shut out from the US economy without a photo ID.  And yet the Democrat Party is content for whatever numbers of Americans that don't have photo IDs to be shut out of the US economy, all for the sake of what obviously is vote fraud.  This is clear what they want to preserve.  They want to preserve exactly what O'Keefe was able to do here.  But O'Keefe has brilliantly exposed the fallacy in not requiring a photo ID, which everybody with a modicum of common sense understands this.  But because the charge is racism if you demand one, if you support photo ID to vote, you're a racist, it quells people's energy on it, shuts 'em down and they don't want to push the issue because nobody wants to be called a racist. 

So once again you've got further cultural rot and decline, and you've got a decline in the reliability of a fairly important tradition in this country, voting.  There are just too many people without the courage. Remember, it was Eric Holder running around telling everybody they were cowards for not having the guts to talk about race.  And the same people like Holder and Obama and the rest of the regime that come around and accuse you and want to make you a coward if you insist on photo ID to vote.  Were you able to hear, understand all that?  We bleeped an address because it actually is Holder's address, and we bleeped a bunch of stuff out of it.  But I had the transcript, so I was able to follow. Were you able to hear what the poll worker said?  Okay, cool.  Devastating, just makes mincemeat of these people's argument.  And the fact that it was Holder is just delectable. 

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: In this James O'Keefe video, Project Veritas, he demonstrates to the attorney general, Eric Holder, just why everybody should be concerned about the lack of voter ID laws.  He walked into Holder's voting precinct and demonstrated that anybody could get Eric Holder's ballot to vote, anybody could.  It's a video.  We have the audio to the video, and it shows a young man entering a Washington, DC, polling place on Nebraska Avenue on primary day, which was April 3rd, just last week, giving Holder's name and address. The poll worker promptly offers the young man Holder's ballot to vote.  In a primary. 

(imitating poll worker) "Oh, yeah.  If you're here, if you're who you say you are, here you go." 

And O'Keefe never did say he was Holder.  He just asked if he had a name in his roster there, if Eric Holder was on the list.  Never said he was Eric Holder.  And even with that he was offered Holder's ballot. 

He said, "Wait a minute, I'd feel better if I went out to the car, got my ID."

"Oh, no, no, you don't need that.  As long as you're here and you're who you say you are." 

The reason I love this is because this is O'Keefe doing what we have always done on this program:  demonstrating, illustrating absurdity by being absurd.  And he's demonstrated the absurdity of our voting laws.  What's great about this is that the Attorney General Holder has maintained that it's not a problem.  Voter fraud's not a major problem, and the voter ID wouldn't curb voter fraud, and that all it is, is racism.  Because blacks, African-Americans feel it's the government coming after 'em and trying to find 'em. And then after they find 'em they do something to 'em.  And because of that, it's racist. 

Here's the audio of the tape released this morning at Breitbart.com.  It's last week at Eric Holder's polling place. James O'Keefe just walks in, and you will hear, he could have voted as Eric Holder had he chosen to. 

O'KEEFE:  Hello.  Do you have an Eric Holder?

POLL WORKER:  (Bleep) out here (Bleep).

POLL WORKER:  Northwest.

POLL WORKER:  H-o-l-t-e-r?

O'KEEFE:  H-o-l-d-e-r.

POLL WORKER:  I do. (unintelligible) (Bleep).

O'KEEFE:  Northwest?  That's the address.

POLL WORKER:  Okay. You sign there.

O'KEEFE:  Actually, I forgot my ID.

POLL WORKER:  You don't need it.  It's all right.

O'KEEFE:  I left it in the car.

POLL WORKER:  As long as you're here, you're on our list, and that's who you say you are.

O'KEEFE:  I would feel more comfortable if I just had my ID.  Is it all right if I go get it?

POLL WORKER:  Sure, go ahead.

O'KEEFE:  I'll be back faster than you can say "furious."

POLL WORKER:  We're not going anywhere.

RUSH:  I'll be back faster than you can say furious.  (laughing)  These poor people are clueless.  Literally clueless.  This guy could have voted as Eric Holder.  Now, what would have happened?  We'll never know.  What would have happened if he'd-a voted as Eric Holder and then Holder walks in later and wants -- (interruption) If they knew who he was, he might be in...  Well, maybe not.  Wouldn't they just give Holder another ballot?  (interruption) Well, okay, that's if O'Keefe goes in and votes as Holder, that's vote fraud.  O'Keefe wasn't gonna do that.  We know it happens. 

The reason I'm playing the hypothetical here is we know it happens.  So what woulda happened if O'Keefe votes as Holder and then later today Holder comes in?  What if the guy doesn't tell him, "Well, you already voted. Oh, you're Eric Holder?"  What he goes to a different guy? What if this guy says, "Prove you're Eric Holder, 'cause there was a guy in here earlier that said he was you."  Well, then the lid would blow.  No question, and every FBI agent in the world would be tracking down James O'Keefe.  But it's important to know James O'Keefe did not commit vote fraud. He didn't say he was Holder. He didn't vote. It's excellent stuff and it does illustrate exactly what this point is all about.

RUSH: Barbara in Minnetonka, Minnesota.  Great to have you on the EIB Network.  Hello.

CALLER:  Thank you for having me, Rush.

RUSH:  I appreciate it.  Thank you.

CALLER:  I went and had a mammogram three weeks ago, and I had to produce my license in order to have my mammogram.  Not only my insurance card, but I had to show them my license because they said --

RUSH:  Wait a second.  Wait a second.  You mean to tell me that you had to show a photo ID to get a mammogram?

CALLER:  That's correct.

RUSH:  Was the photo ID of your face or another body part?

CALLER:  It was my face.

RUSH:  Okay, and why?

CALLER:  My driver's license, because they said so many insurance cards were being stolen, they wanted to make sure I was the person getting the mammogram.

RUSH:  A-ha.  Well, it's a good reason.  So many insurance cards are stolen, you could have somebody pretending to be you, coming in for a mammogram.  Did it offend you to have to produce your photo ID?

CALLER:  No, it did not.  Not at all.

RUSH:  And so you wouldn't be bothered at all if you had to show a photo ID to vote, either, would you?

CALLER:  Not at all.

RUSH:  In fact, you know polling data on this shows 70 to 80% of the American people have no problem with a photo ID to vote.  Seventy to 80%, including a majority of blacks, including a majority of the Hispanics, including a majority of minorities.  The only people opposed to this are the Democrat Party and Eric Holder, the attorney general.  I wonder, why would a political party not want people to have to prove who they are to vote?  That's the way to phrase this.  Why would a political party not want people to have to prove who they are to vote?  So they can win elections 'cause they can't win 'em straight up.  I mean liberals are only 30% of the population self identified. Not even that, 20% now.  Self-identified.  Thanks for the call, Barbara.  I really appreciate it.
