Bernie Sanders' Presidential Primaries 2016

During the 2016 primary election, Project Veritas Action journalists embedded themselves in the Bernie Sanders campaign in New Hampshire. We found that New Hampshire's voter ID laws were quite easy to circumvent, a fact that the Bernie Sanders staffers took advantage of. We also uncovered funds from the Australian Labor Party were being used to help elect Bernie Sanders.

Part 1

Out of state voters and non-residents offered ballots in New Hampshire presidential primary

Four years ago, James O’Keefe released a video which showed how easy it would be for people to vote in New Hampshire using the names of deceased people. As a result of that video, New Hampshire changed its voter ID laws. Project Veritas Action revisited New Hampshire during Tuesday’s presidential primary election and again showed how easy it is to cast fraudulent votes with the new law fully in place. In this new video, multiple election officials and Bernie Sanders presidential campaign staffers offered advice to journalists using hidden cameras about how to circumvent the law.

Exposed ways to circumvent the New Hampshire voter ID laws.

Although New Hampshire changed their voter ID laws in 2012 as a direct results of a video released by James O’Keefe, Project Veritas Action was able to prove that the change wasn’t enough. Election officials as well as staffers for the Bernie Sanders campaign gave advice to PVA journalists on how to skirt the laws.

BUSTED ON HIDDEN CAM: Sanders Staff Illegally Using NH Campaign Office Address to Vote

Project Veritas Action found that the voter ID laws in New Hampshire were easy to circumvent. It seemed that this fact was well known to the staffers in the Bernie Sanders campaign, as they took advantage of it.

Bernie Sanders NH Field Director Hugo Palma was caught using the campaign office address as his legal domicile address in order to vote illegally. According to the video, “half” of local campaign staffers also used the same address to vote in the primary.
