Rule of Law

PJ Media has obtained documents demonstrating that the New Hampshire attorney general was in discussions with Eric Holder’s Department of Justice regarding filing criminal charges against journalist James O’Keefe after he exposed vulnerabilities in New Hampshire’s electoral system in the January 10, 2012, presidential primary.

In his hidden-camera investigation, O’Keefe demonstrated how the lack of a photo-voter identification law in New Hampshire facilitated voter fraud by allowing impersonation of dead voters.  Worse, O’Keefe captured video showing that election officials like Ryk Bullock were oblivious to this vulnerability.

Bullock said that voter impersonation of dead voters could not take place “because we are tied into a statewide system. So when someone passes away, that name is immediately dropped from the statewide database, within a matter of days. … We go to great lengths.”  Bullock was wrong.

As a direct result of O’Keefe’s expose, the New Hampshire legislature passed a photo voter -identification law.

State and federal officials, however, targeted O’Keefe after his expose.

New Hampshire Associate Attorney General Richard Head managed a criminal investigation of O’Keefe which included boorish and unprofessional attempts to serve grand jury subpoenas on O’Keefe and his employees.

But documents reveal that Head’s pursuit of O’Keefe went beyond his ham-handed efforts at service of process.

On January 17, 2012, Head convened a meeting with at least eight top-ranking law enforcement officials about O’Keefe’s expose.  Included for this meeting were Obama appointee and United States Attorney for New Hampshire John Kacavas. State officials included Senior Assistant New Hampshire Attorney General Jane Young, Associate Attorney General Anne Edwards, Bureau Chief Mary Ann Dempsey, attorney Matthew Mavrogeorge, investigator Mark Mydrek, and Deputy Attorney General Ann Rice.

It is unclear what federal statutory predicate would justify an FBI investigation of O’Keefe’s voter ID expose.

And therein lies the rub. The law-apparently- does not matter. What matters is that someone is defying the crown and this cannot be allowed to stand.

Maybe some Democrat will say "We need to jail O'Keefe to find out what's in the law".

We really need to correctly describe all of the Obama administration intimidation of O'Keefe, TEA Party and True the Vote for what it was.

Election fraud.

The Obama administration used the powers of the Federal government to intimidate political opponents with the threat of tax or criminal charges to obtain an advantage in an election.

Much as the Soviet Union, Cuba, Venezuela and so many other totalitarian banana republic regimes did and do.

Actual vote fraud does not warrent any holder DOJ investigations. Only people who investigate vote fraud get investigated. It pretty obvious where his priorities are.

O'Keefe's being singled out, because he is engaged in offering up proof that voter fraud is going on all around us. From precincts that report more voters than residents and illegal aliens voting unchallenged, our electoral system is losing the confidence of citizens. O's people are going after him to shut him up and intimidate anyone with similar ideas.

This is a situation where it matters that we each commit "three felonies a day". In the case of a gadfly like O'Keefe, it is merely necessary to look around for a while to discover a few of his, then be rid of him.

I'm betting that right now NSA's files are being combed for something that can be used to 'get' O'Keefe.

What's really sad here (besides Bullock's afro) is the panoply of assistants and deputies and helpers who meekly acquiesced to the DOJ's naked power play. Here, the tyrant does not need firepower; all he needs is a coward or two here mixed with a true believer there, and presto, an election "victory."
