Rep. Jim Moran’s Son: “Forge” Utility Bills to Commit Voter Fraud

published on

Project Veritas has released a new investigation that exposes Representative Jim Moran’s Field Director, Patrick Moran, conspiring to commit election fraud. When approached by an undercover investigator for advice on how to steal the votes of more than 100 people, Moran advised falsifying documents to satisfy Virginia’s new voter ID law. He said, “Bank statement obviously would be tough, but they can fake a utility bill with ease.” Moran went on to clarify that, “You’d have to forge it.”

Announcing the release, James O’Keefe said, “This is the most damning evidence to date of the scope of voter fraud in this country. Patrick Moran is not only the son of an 11-term Congressman, but is also the Field Director on his father’s re-election campaign. “If anyone should be opposed to voter fraud it’s him. Yet he actively encouraged our investigator to forge documents and pose as a pollster to disenfranchise registered voters in Virginia, Washington, D.C. and Maryland.”

For much of 2012, Project Veritas has been conducting an ongoing series of investigations in more than a dozen states demonstrating the ease with which election fraud can be committed and legitimate voters can be disenfranchised. And they’ve shown that no one is immune. In April, a Project Veritas investigator was even offered the ballot of Attorney General Eric Holder himself. “No matter how many times we’ve proven the danger,” said O’Keefe,  “our reports have been ignored or dismissed by the media as honest mistakes by poll workers and low-level campaign operatives. Not anymore.” The latest footage was gathered at the Organizing for America offices in Arlington, Virginia where Patrick Moran coordinates with OFA on his father’s campaign, efforts to re-elect President Obama, and the campaign to elect Tim Kaine to the U.S. Senate.

There is no doubt that Moran knows what he’s doing. At several points in the video, he references Virginia’s new voter ID law and praises the investigator as “hardcore.” Moran also says he “respects” the investigator’s desire to commit a felony to elect Democrats to office. “Unfortunately,” said James O’Keefe, “what Patrick Moran doesn’t respect is the integrity of our elections. He would rather win by fraud than risk seeing the political positions of his father, Barack Obama and Tim Kaine rejected by the legitimate voters of Virginia.”
