An election integrity group has filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission following the release of undercover videos from James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas.
The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), an Indiana-based group that litigates to protect election integrity, submitted the complaint Tuesday to the Office of the General Counsel at the FEC claiming that Hillary Clinton’s campaign committee and other left-wing groups may have violated campaign finance laws.
“This complaint is based on information and belief that respondents have engaged in public communications, campaign activity, targeted voter registration drives, and other targeted GOTV [get out the vote] activity under 11 C.F.R. 100.26 and 11 C.F.R. 114.4 at the request, direction, and approval of the Hillary for America campaign committee and the Democratic National Committee in violation of 11 C.F.R. 109.20 and 11 C.F.R. 114.4(d)(2) and (3),” the complaint states.
“Complainant’s information and belief is based on findings from an investigation conducted by Project Veritas Action and their published reports regarding the same, as well as on news sources.”
Clinton campaign treasurer Jose H. Villarreal, the Democratic National Committee, Democracy Partners, Americans United for Change, Scott Foval, and Voces de la Frontera Action are additionally listed as respondents on the complaint alongside Hillary for America.
J. Christian Adams, president of PILF, hopes the FEC will investigate the matter.
“American voter rolls are corrupted with unacceptable numbers of aliens who are illegally registered to vote,” Adams said. “Groups should not be coordinating with campaigns and political parties to exploit vulnerabilities in our election system. We hope this matter is fully investigated by the FEC and that if aliens are voting, they are prosecuted by the Justice Department. That would mark a change in DOJ policies of the last 7 years.”
Under normal circumstances this would be good news, and had this happened with the Republicans, the FEC would be pouncing on this. Over the years we’ve learned that when it comes to dealing with Teflon Hillary, the rules are tossed out the window.
As was admitted to in the video, there is a double blind in place so that her campaign has plausible deniability. Her spokesperson will deny they’re associated with this project and deny having any knowledge of their activities. Unless one of the culprits squeals, nothing will come of it. The FEC, headed up by Ann Ravel, a democrat and appointed by O, will treat her with kid gloves just like the FBI and the DOJ did.
To make matters worse, there’s probably no way to invalidate all the fraudulent voters and clean this mess up in time for the election. Many people have already received mail-in ballots and early voting is underway in some areas, so the fire is too spread out to contain.
I’m curious to see if Trump will mention it during the debate tonight. He should bring it up to help raise awareness and to make her as uncomfortable as possible.
