Last week, super-sleuth James O’Keefe and two of his pals tried to bait Democratic field staffers into voter fraud. O’Keefe wore a disguise, as usual, but this time donning a pornstache in an attempt to look 45-years-old.

Sneaky James was certain he would catch Democrats at voter fraud with Colorado’s universal vote-by-mail program.

[su_center_ad]Mother Jones reports:

Democratic staffers in Colorado recently came to believe they were the subject of an O’Keefe operation after campaign workers became suspicious about would-be volunteers who had asked about filling out and submitting mail-in ballots for others. Recently, the 30-year-old O’Keefe has targeted the Senate campaigns of Arkansas Democrat Mark Pryor and Kentucky Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes by filming undercover videos of staffers or the candidate.

Young James tweeted that this time, “people may lose their jobs.”


On Tuesday, a man calling himself “Nick Davis” who appeared to be in his 20s — not 45 —  showed up at a Democratic field office in Boulder. He said he wanted to volunteer to help elect Mark Udall and Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.).

“Nick” claimed to be a University of Colorado-Boulder student and LGBT activist involved with a student group called Rocky Mountain Vote Pride. Crafty!

The man went on to ask the staffer if he should fill out and mail in ballots for other college students who had moved away but still received mail on campus.

The Democratic staffer advised him that that would be considered voter fraud and that he should not do it.

On Friday, Udall campaigned with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on the University of Colorado-Boulder campus. After the event, a woman calling herself “Bonnie” approached a different staffer and, according to this staffer’s boss, asked whether she could fill out and submit blank ballots found in a garbage can. The staffer, according to her boss, said that she told her no.

That same day, the guy identifying himself as “Nick Davis” returned to the Democratic office in Boulder. He was accompanied by a man wearing heavy makeup and a mustache, according to the Democratic staffer who had met Davis three days earlier. Davis introduced his friend as a “civics professor” at the University of Colorado-Boulder and the faculty adviser to Rocky Mountain Vote Pride. Davis and the professor, who said his name was “John Miller,” picked up Udall campaign literature and canvassing information.

After repeatedly being asked about submitting other people’s ballots, Democratic staffers became suspicious. Because, it’s against the law, that’s why.

O’Keefe was busted after the staffers compared pictures to James dressed with the mustache at one Democratic event, and then dressed as a professor and concluded they were the same person.

O’Keefe and two of his male cohorts also targeted a progressive nonprofit named New Era Colorado, but again, they found him to be suspicious.

Staffers began taking O’Keefe’s pictures so he went to his car and produced a large video camera and a microphone. “If you want to take photos of us, we’ll take photos of you,” O’Keefe said.

Staffers closed the door while O’Keefe and his friend tried to push it open and stick their super-sleuth microphone inside.

New Era reportedly filed a police report about the incident.

James O’Keefe has not produced a video of this embarrassing incident, although, it might still be in the editing room. Taping video footage together takes time. However, the staffers should check their offices and phone lines. It wouldn’t be the first time O’Keefe has attempted to illegally wiretap a politician’s office. [su_csky_ad]

    It’s hard to tell sometimes–is it Looney Tunes, or just James O’Keefe playing Spy vs Spy.

  2. Linda1961 October 21st, 2014 at 1:56 pm

    He’s thirty? He acts more like a three year old than an adult.

  3. Electriq October 21st, 2014 at 2:00 pm

    He’s still trying to troll the democratic process.

    Don’t feed the troll, and it will eventually shrivel up.

  4. Obewon October 21st, 2014 at 2:01 pm

    O’Keefe must be the last to know primarily repubs commit and are convicted of voter fraud. I’d indict, try, convict and imprison this Parolee for conspiracy to commit felony election frauds!

  5. Kingminnie October 21st, 2014 at 2:09 pm

    This guy’s whacked. People may lose their jobs? Hopefully his people.

    Voting staff are sworn to act in a neutral capacity. Voter affiliation is irrelevant. James is obsessed with voter fraud but only believes Democrats will participate. Perhaps he should be looking for fraud in Koch industries mailouts. He may find more success, but alas, Koch brothers are Republicans so he probably won’t go there.

    Here’s O’Keefe in his clever disguise. Three words: worst pornstache ever!

  8. GreatLakeSailor October 21st, 2014 at 3:56 pm

    If James O’Grift wasn’t so annoying, this would be comedy gold.

  9. Mo Reno October 21st, 2014 at 4:03 pm

    CO has laws criminalizing solicitation, voter/election fraud, and impersonation. Time to get a call in to the Attorney General and Secretary of State.

  10. William October 21st, 2014 at 4:04 pm

    How is it he’s not under arrest?

  11. Suzanne McFly October 21st, 2014 at 4:47 pm

    Why does the right insist on proving the democratic party is smarter?

    • Carl McMinn October 23rd, 2014 at 7:55 am

      Except for the video of him being encouraged to commit voter fraud and THEN being offered a job… right? EXCEPT for just that one bit of video evidence that voter fraud IS at least being encouraged…

      • Obewon October 23rd, 2014 at 9:11 am

        Felon O’Keefe doesn’t have any accurate video. That’s why he’s a parolee living in his mom’s basement after losing $12 M+ in adjudicated fines for Breitbart!

        • R.J. Carter October 23rd, 2014 at 9:17 am

          Uhm… “Parole”? “$12 M+?”

          I think your fact-checker is leaning left.

          • Obewon October 23rd, 2014 at 9:21 am

            -BREITBART: I have regrets that I didn’t fight back immediately. With the threat of a lawsuit I couldn’t go out there to defend myself. I regret that I didn’t start talking about Shirley Sherrod’s involvement in the Pigford scandal, where she and her defunct farm, NCI, received $13.3 million.

          • R.J. Carter October 23rd, 2014 at 10:08 am

            Old news. I know, he mentioned it to me before he died. But we were talking about O’Keefe?

          • Obewon October 23rd, 2014 at 11:59 am

            I too spared with Breitbart about his employee O’Keefe’s $12 M+ in adjudicated civil suit judgement’s against his employer Breitbart. Both were indicted scam artists, with the O’Keffe gang pleading guilty.

          • R.J. Carter October 23rd, 2014 at 12:02 pm

            You “sparred” with him? He spoke to you? He acknowledged this alleged lawsuit? Used the word “parole”?

          • Obewon October 23rd, 2014 at 12:05 pm

            I have the communications saved. Breitbart insisted his Storm Front and AmRen racist buddies weren’t racists, despite proof.

  12. Joe Evony October 22nd, 2014 at 2:12 am

    You are so very right James, It is so easy to perpetrate a criminal act. The hard part is getting it on video and editing it to look like a conspiracy

  13. greenfloyd October 22nd, 2014 at 4:17 am

    Voter fraud!? Snooze! At least there was some entertainment value in invading America from the Rio Grande and then Lake Erie Ninja-style. He may never top the Bin Laden bit, but I’ll wait for this video to come out.

  14. No October 23rd, 2014 at 2:59 am

    Here’s the clip. I do think he succeeded! We have plenty of new illegal voters now that the borders are open. And lots of infectious diseases. Gobama!

    • greenfloyd October 23rd, 2014 at 3:23 am

      Damn! Seven minutes and forty-five seconds I’ll never reclaim. But, thanks for the link, I asked for it. Won’t make that mistake again.

  15. Carl McMinn October 23rd, 2014 at 7:54 am

    Except for the video of him being encouraged to commit voter fraud and THEN being offered a job…

    • Obewon October 23rd, 2014 at 9:52 am

      So where is this adjudicated dissemblers claimed job offer contract? “(O’keefe’s) people may lose their jobs”-James you’re fired!
