O’Keefe Busts Illegal Voter Scheme to ‘Turn Texas Blue’

from Breitbart – by Brandon Darby –

SAN ANTONIO, Texas—In an apparent violation of state law, Battleground Texas officials are exploiting legally protected information to turn voters out to the polls as part of the Democratic party’s quest to paint the Lone Star State blue, a new undercover video from James O’Keefe reveals.

The footage shows Battleground Texas volunteer Jennifer Longoria saying the group uses the phone numbers from voter registration forms in later efforts to boost turnout on election day.

Texas Election Code prohibits the use of, or even the copying of, phone numbers provided by individuals registering to vote.

“Every time we register somebody to vote, we keep their name, address, phone number,” Longoria said.

The video also shows volunteers calling to boost turnout for Wendy Davis’s gubernotorial bid.

The new revelations are likely to add to concerns about an apparent culture of data sharing among Democrat-aligned political and nonprofit organizations. For example, a previous O’Keefe expose raised questions about whether campaigns to get people to sign up for Obamacare had secondary political motives.

We must muster the vote. People who love freedom and ‘free-will’ under a communist-Marxist system would soon perish. Free-will is defined as those folks who want to work for what they have, pride in their accomplishments, and strive to push a great Nation even further. A return to a Constitutional Republic with a limited federal government of which ha not existed for more than a century.
Look at what Oklahoma has done. They are fighting back with a vengeance. I hope Texas does not sit on their laurels with an apathetic attitude. We have too much to loose.

Quit pussyfooting and throw the lawbreakers in jail. Take away their voting rights for 19 years and exclude them from doing similar work in the future !

Project Veritas does terrific investigational journalism to expose the stories the mainstream media either chooses to ignore or sweep under the rug in order to protect the Progressive (Socialist) agenda they openly embrace. We need a whole lot more people like James O’Keefe, who is a true American hero in my opinion, digging up all the under-handed and illegal means employed to advance a fundamentally un-American, anti-freedom and anti-opportunity agenda (Socialism) on an increasingly detached, apathetic and unfortunately ignorant public.

This story and the associated video should be widely dispersed by the members of AMAC to everyone they know. We need to keep highlighting the lawlessness of this administration and the tactics that are employed to promote the Progressive agenda in this country. Don’t expect anyone in the mainstream media to cover this story. They won’t! It is up to us to help educate the public, to the degree possible, concerning how the Progressive movement operates.

Don’t act surprised, google: Obama and Acorn – The Cheating Team … If there’s a way to cheat the Democrats will find it!

Why do you think the Democratic party is filled with Attorneys? Who better to find a way to “bend” the law to their advantage. The Democrats want All the states with the largest electoral votes … Texas is the lone holdout for them.

If illegal then charges should be filed against the individual violators and the entire organization as a whole. Prosecutors should try the vilators to the fullest extent of the law. Maximum sentences should be handed out. In the mean time a cease and desist court order should be issued to the organization. And violations to that cease and desist order should be dealt with immediately as a separate issue from the above violations.

Such activities are blatant attack on the moral fiber of America. Win at any cost is repugnant and should be rejected by all. Hoever, I see Dems as employing such behavior at the highest levels – IRS harrassing conservative groups. I am very disappointed in the entire political landscape. Short of tossing out all current elected officials and stopping voter fraud, etc. I don’t see any fix that will right this ship called America.

Is this how Obama was elected before? His this been on ANY news station? Maybe that is the intended function of the FCC monitoring news-so these stories do not ever come to light. We have the EPA telling us what light bulb we can use and how many squares of toilet paper we can use (only slight exaggeration). We have political correctness (trying to stifle free speech. We have DOJ running guns to Mexico (consequently causing the death of USA border agent) and hiding/lying about it. Private citizens and journalists being wire-tapped. We have the IRS discriminating against conservative organizations and private citizens. All of these government organizations turned against “we the people”=tyranny. Obama has an organized gestapo targeting us and they are funded by “we the people”. THAT is the biggest hurt of all. WE THE PEOPLE pay all the taxes that fund these organizations. We need a quick check and balance system for these behaviors. And it should be in the interest of ALL parties.

Is there any depth to the deceit Democrats will stoop to in their quest to rule America? They have a fake president and criminals at the helm in the Senate. Now they need the house and the rest of the supreme court. Then we’ll change our name to Germany. In a pigs eye!!
