New O'Keefe Video Allegedly Shows Democratic Poll Workers Assisting Illegal, Non-Citizen to Vote in NC

Conservative activist James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas is out with a new video showing Democratic campaign workers appearing to condone and assist an individual posing as an illegal immigrant to vote in North Carolina.

In the video, a woman pretending to be an illegal immigrant from Brazil asks a number of campaign workers — many working for candidates running for law enforcement offices in the state — if she can vote, despite being an illegal immigrant. Each person the video shows her asking answers that it is not a problem.

It is illegal for a non-citizen to vote, regardless of whether they have been inadvertently placed on the voter rolls. The State Board of Elections recently revealed that more than 1,400 non-citizens are on North Carolina voting rolls. The body stressed that it is “working to ensure that no ballot cast by a non-citizen will count in this or any future election.”

It is also illegal for a person to knowingly assist a non-citizen to vote. 

Nevertheless, O’Keefe’s video appears to show that some Democratic campaign workers are more than willing to allow and assist non-citizens to cast votes in North Carolina. 


North Carolina is currently home to one of the tightest races in the country between Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC) and Republican state House Speaker Thom Tillis. 

A recent study about non-citizen voting speculated that illegal, non-citizen votes swayed the 2008 election of Al Franken (D-MN) and President Obama’s victory in North Carolina during his run for president in 2008.
