Following the release of Project Veritas Action’s latest video, Mark Udall Advocates Condone Voter Fraud, the international organization Greenpeace has terminated the employment of one of their Colorado employees. Christen Topping was recorded by Project Veritas Action reporters telling them where to harvest discarded ballots of black and Hispanic voters who “don’t care” in a portion of Aurora, Colorado.
“I mean it’s putting the votes to good use, responded Greenpeace worker Christen Topping to Project Veritas Action investigators when presented with a staged voter fraud opportunity in the video. “So really truly like yeah, that’s awesome.” Topping also provided Project Veritas Action journalists a location which she described as “ghetto Aurora” where they could likely find additional mail ballots for illegal use.
A Wonkette article announced that Ms. Topping had been fired. National Review’s John Fund, who was already questioning why the people in the video condoning voter fraud hadn’t been fired, has the details in this new article:
Greenpeace has fired one of its key Colorado officials, Christen Topping, over her comments condoning the creation of fraudulent ballots using that state’s vote-by-mail system. She went beyond that and told filmmaker James O’Keefe the exact street corner in “ghetto Aurora” where he could find ballots in trash cans that could be fraudulently mailed in. Topping provided Project Veritas Action journalists a location which she described as “ghetto Aurora” where they could likely find discarded mail ballots for illegal use, referring to “African-American and Mexican[s]” voters she described as “kind of like the lower class.”
Greenpeace spokesman Molly Dorozenski said Topping’s statements were not in accord with the values of Greenpeace and “her contract has been terminated.”
Regarding one of the other women found condoning voter fraud in the video, Fund continues:
O’Keefe now wants to know what Alan Franklin, the CEO of Work for Progress, a liberal activist group whose literature clearly states it is working to reelect Democratic senator Mark Udall in Colorado, will respond to his video. Franklin’s state director, Meredith Hicks, told O’Keefe that committing voter fraud using unused ballots was perfectly okay. “That’s not even lying or stealing, if someone throws out the ballot. If you want to fill it out you should do it,” she told O’Keefe on tape.
When the TV station FOX31 in Denver finally reached Hicks yesterday for her reaction to O’Keefe’s video she was apparently nervous. She “initially told FOX31 Denver she knew O’Keefe but then said she didn’t recall” the conversation she had with him just a few days before. “I don’t have anything to say about that,” she said.
O’Keefe told me he is curious if Franklin will follow the lead of Greenpeace and fire an employee who clearly condones the casting of illegal ballots, and, indeed, thinks it isn’t akin to “lying or stealing.”
