The Real Fraud: Second ‘Non-Citizen’ In James O’Keefe Voter Fraud Video Naturalized In 2011

Source: Think Progress Justice Blog

In conservative filmmaker James O’Keefe’s latest video, he features two “non-citizens” who have supposedly committed voter fraud in North Carolina. As ThinkProgress reported yesterday, one of the men, Zbigniew Gorzkowski, has actually been an American citizens for decades.

Now, it turns out that the second “non-citizen,” William Romero, is actually a citizen as well, according to his family.

The video opens with O’Keefe’s cameraman walking up Romero’s driveway and confronting a member of his family about whether he is a citizen. O’Keefe points to court records from 2010 where Romero was excused from jury duty because he was not a citizen at the time. Therefore, as O’Keefe argues, Romero’s voter registration dated December 5, 2011 is fraudulent because Romero “is not a United States citizen.”

The problemis that Romero IS a proud citizen of the good ol' USA.
Chalk up another EPIC FAIL for Pimp Boy.
Gorzkowski and Romero should sue O'Keefe's lying, libeling ass.

4. That's two for two, so far. How many did he accuse, by name, of being non-citizen voters?

Does anyone take this guy seriously anymore? And how is it that he doesn't understand that after bringing down ACORN, he was outed as an out and out liar?

15. Actually three for three.

O'Keefe claimed a voter was already was dead, his sloppy "research" missed the fact there was a "Jr."

14. I hope they do.

Surely some law firm would take this on just to make a name for themselves. Maybe if he actually suffered some financial repercussions for his dishonest antics he would finally get the message.

13. Repubs areexperts in voter fraud, remember Florida in 2000.

They will do anything to cheat, they have been pushing for voter id any redraw line to favor repubs. Any group who welcomes groups like tea party and neo-Nazi has no limlts. Talk about causing the downfall of the USA, they are the creators of the end.

So how do you keep O'Keefe or anyone else (foreigner or not) from using Gorzkowsk's ballot?

17. What?

The point is, people don't typically use other people's ballots. Voter fraud is largely a myth.

23. Is there something about Gorzkowski's ballot that makes it more amenable to fraud than anyone elses?

I don't get your point.

25. Since the man went to the trouble of becoming a citizen, he will no doubt want to use it himself.

and thanks to nasty RW twits like O'Keefe being in his face, he will probably use it to vote against those who would restrict voting rights based on his having a funny name or talking with an accent.
