Following the investigation into just how easy it is to conduct vote fraud, Project Veritas set out to see if anyone was actively trying to cheat in elections. A Project Veritas journalist recorded a lengthy conversation with Pat Moran – the son of then-Congressman James Moran and field director to his father’s campaign.
Pat Moran provided detailed advice on how to commit voter fraud, specifically outlining the necessary steps to circumvent voter ID laws. When the journalist suggested that he wanted to fraudulently vote for approximately 100 strangers, Pat Moran advised him to forge utility bills in the names of the unsuspecting registered voters and assured him that DNC lawyers would defend him if election officials attempted to invalidate the votes.
Patrick Moran immediately resigned from his father’s Congressional campaign. Congressman Jim Moran subsequently resigned from office the following year, citing the scandal. The Arlington Police Department launched an investigation, and the Virginia State Board of Elections voted unanimously to ask Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli to launch an investigation into Patrick Moran. The Virginia State Board of Election approved new voter-ID laws.
Jim Moran’s (D-Va.) Field Director Conspires to Commit Voter Fraud, Forge Docs
Congressman Jim Moran’s son, Pat, was caught on hidden camera by Project Veritas undercover journalists giving advice on how to forge documents in order to vote in other people’s names. Pat’s actions were a clear violation of state and federal law. To make matters worse for Rep. Moran, Pat was also serving as field director for his father’s re-election campaign. The younger Moran cautions the undercover reporter to be careful and states: “I respect your initiative.”
This sheds light on the corruption of voter fraud behind government elections in the United States that many claim does not even exist.
