O’Keefe Releases Video Allegedly Showing Stranger Offered Eric Holder’s Ballot to Vote

James O’Keefe has released a new undercover video allegedly showing a man appearing at a D.C. polling place, giving the name Eric Holder, and then being offered the ballot of the attorney general.

In the video, the man gives Holder’s name and an address. The poll worker then checks the name and, after confirming the spelling, eventually appears to offer the man a ballot:

Man: “Do you have an Eric Holder, [address censored]?

Poll worker: “Let me see here.”

Man: [address censored] Northwest.

Poll Worker: Let’s see, Holder; H-o-l-t-e-r, or d-e-r?

Man: H-o-l-d-e-r. That’s the name

Poll Worker: D-e-r. Okay.

Poll Worker: I do. [recites address]

Man:  [address censored] Northwest. That’s the address

Poll Worker: Okay. [Appears to check off name] Will you sign there . . .

Man: I actually forgot my ID.

Poll Worker: You don’t need it; it’s all right.

Man: I left it in the car.

Poll Worker: As long as you’re in here, and you’re on our list and that’s who you say you are, we’re okay.

Man: I would feel more comfortable if I go get my ID, is it all right if I go get it?

Poll Worker: Sure, go ahead.

Man: I’ll be back faster than you can say furious!

Poll Worker: We’re not going anywhere.

Although the title “attorney general” is never mentioned in the undercover footage, the assumption is that the stranger was asking about the nation’s top law enforcement official. National Review’s John Fund gives more details and reaction to the video here.

We should note that The Blaze has been critical of O’Keefe’s tactics in the past.

UPDATE:

An unnamed Justice Department official has responded with a statement to Talking Points Memo: “It’s no coincidence that these so-called examples of rampant voter fraud consistently turn out to be manufactured ones.”
