Easy to Cheat without Voter ID

 Dead people almost got to vote in New Hampshire this week.

Imposters with hidden cameras visited several polling places, gave the name of a dead person, and were handed a ballot to vote. It was a sting operation to prove how easy election fraud becomes when no voter ID is required--and that's the law in New Hampshire.

The pretenders, from the group Project Veritas, were given ballots but did not use them, handing them back while still on camera.

The videos—posted online--prove how easy it is to stuff ballot boxes, simply by looking up names and addresses of those who died recently. Yet Attorney General Eric Holder is trying to stop a voter ID law in South Carolina. Many liberals claim it's a phony issue. The NAACP is asking the UN to block voter ID laws.

They should go online and watch just how easy it is to cheat when you don't have to show ID.
