O'Keefe: More Proof Clinton Campaign is Breaking the Law

UPDATE: Clinton staffer featured in sting video now under investigation by election officials

James O'Keefe's latest Project Veritas sting video purports to show more evidence that Hillary Clinton's campaign is violating voter registration laws.

"Whatever you can get away with, just do it, until you get kicked out like totally," an attorney working for the Clinton campaign advised staffers. 

O'Keefe explains on the video that what his undercover operatives captured is clear evidence that Clinton campaign staffers are instructed to deliberately skirt laws prohibiting a campaign from encouraging voters they register to support a candidate or issue. 

Project Veritas reporters infiltrated one of Clinton's Nevada offices, where staffers appear to admit to violating Nevada's law that makes it a felony to "solicit a vote for or against a particular question or candidate; speak to a voter on the subject of marking his or her ballot for or against a particular question or candidate."  

The video shows clips of staffers openly admitting and even bragging about ignoring the law by pushing pro-Clinton materials while registering voters and deliberately attempting to thwart officials' attempts to discourage such violations. "Ask for forgiveness, not for permission," one says is the mantra of the campaign. 

The sting video focuses a lot of attention on a woman O'Keefe identifies as a local lawyer who is tasked with training staffers. At one point she encourages them to "Do whatever you can. Whatever you can get away with, just do it, until you get kicked out like totally."

After the Clinton campaign admitted that they'd been warning staffers about potential sting attempts, O'Keefe warned Hillary in late August that he had damning evidence against her campaign. "[A]s Hillary is soon to learn the hard way, if you do something wrong, make sure you don't get caught on camera," he said.

UPDATE: Breitbart News reports that following the release of the sting video, Nevada election officials are now investigating Christina Gupana, the Nevada lawyer working for the Clinton campaign featured in the video.

"We do have an official complaint referencing the video," Wayne Thorley, deputy secretary for elections in Nevada’s Secretary of State’s office, told Breitbart News. "The complaint was filed 2:30 local Nevada Time today. We will be investigating the complaint."

"We can confirm that we are aware of the video and we will look into what’s on the video," Thorley said.

Breitbart also noted Friday that Gupana has deleted the website of her legal practice after release of the video.
