North Carolina Senate Race 2014

In 2014, James O’Keefe and Project Veritas went undercover in the North Carolina Senate race between Kay Hagan and Thom Tillis. While undercover in North Carolina, Project Veritas released two videos. The first video showed multiple campaigns providing instructions to an undercover “illegal immigrant” on how they could cast fraudulent votes. In the second video, James O’Keefe was offered ballots twenty times while assuming the identity of a local voter and was only asked for ID once.

Multiple NC Campaign Workers Willing to Aid Non-Citizen With Felony Kay Hagan Votes

A stunning undercover video exposes a reckless disregard of election law in North Carolina. Multiple campaign operatives and workers, both democrats and republicans, encourage felony voter fraud.

A Project Veritas Action operative poses as an enthusiastic wanna-be voter, who also happens to be a non U. S. citizen. When she asks campaign managers and other campaign operatives if it is okay if she votes they all say yes, no problem.

Greg Amick, Campaign Manager for Mecklenburg County Sheriff hopeful Irwin Carmichael, says, ‘it shouldn’t be an issue at all.” Martin Kelly, the father of Superior Court Judge candidate David Kelly adds, “If they registered her, then she can’t get in trouble. All they can do is say no. They can’t do anything else.”

James OKeefe Offered a Bus Load of Ballots in North Carolina

“Of all of the undercover investigations I’ve conducted, this was by far the easiest. They were willing to pass out fraudulently obtained ballots like it was Halloween candy,” said James O’Keefe. “With almost three-quarters-of-a-million inactive voters and no Voter ID law in place, we could have turned the election results for most major candidates in the state. What we uncovered in this video illustrates how easy it would be for a well-orchestrated campaign with no regard for the law to change the outcome of a major election. Voter laws across the country need to be changed immediately to prevent this sort of potential voter fraud.”

Results

Kay Hagan lost the election
