James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has released a new undercover video featuring a Democrat New York City election commissioner complaining about rampant voter fraud. He said people are bussed around to different polling places, and he slammed the use of ID cards given out haphazardly by Mayor Bill de Blasio.
NYC Board of Elections Commissioner Alan Schulkin revealed his true feelings to an undercover journalist sent by O’Keefe to a United Federation of Teacher’s Christmas party in 2015. He unloaded about his concern over voter fraud that was encouraged, and perhaps, designed by de Blasio.
“He gave out ID cards, de Blasio. That’s in lieu of a driver’s license, but you can use it for anything,” Schulkin said. “But they didn’t vet people to see who they really are. Anybody can go in there and say, ‘I am Joe Smith, I want an ID card.’”
“The Muslims can do that, too,” he added. “You don’t know who they are… Your vote gets discounted because they come in with a burka on and they can vote.”
“It’s absurd. There is a lot of fraud. Not just voter fraud, all kinds of fraud… This is why I get more conservative as I get older,” Schulkin said.
He was hesitant to mention which neighborhoods this happens in most, so, the journalist helped him out: black neighborhoods, Hispanic neighborhoods.
“And Chinese, too,” Schulkin added.
New York doesn’t have voter ID law. Schulkin said no one can be asked to show an ID at polling locations but believes that’s a terrible practice.
“You know, I don’t think it’s too much to ask somebody to show some kind of an ID,” he said.
The journalist reminded him that Hillary Clinton doesn’t support ID laws. He responded, “I know, that’s why I’m not always crazy about everything the Democrats do, either.”
Schulkin would rather vote for someone other than Clinton, but he said, “I have no choice.”
The journalist asked, “Are you sure you’re a Democrat?”
“Sometimes, I’m not,” he said.
Schulkin barely got a chance to touch on the “thousands of absentee ballots” involving voter fraud that no one seems to want to stop.
He responded to this video's release and backtracked slightly: “I should have said ‘potential fraud’ instead of ‘fraud.’”
Schulkin said he remembers talking to a woman but found her to be a “nuisance,” so he was “just trying to placate her.”
