"As ThinkProgress documented this week, both of the “non-citizens” shown in James O’Keefe’s latest video sting supposedly committing voter fraud by participating in American elections are actually American citizens." Link 1 Link 2

O'Keefe appears to be willing to play fast and loose with the truth in order to try to make the point that there is massive voter fraud in American elections. While he has updated his web site to admit that the two men he highlighted in his video are actually American citizens, he has not changed the video (still available on youtube Link 3) in which he made his original false accusation.

I guess ethics are not important to people like O'Keefe who don't care who may be hurt or have their honesty questioned in order to make a bogus political point.
"War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives." -- General Smedley Butler: War is a Racket (1935)

"War is mankind's most tragic and stupid folly; to seek or advise its deliberate provocation is a black crime against all men. Though you follow the trade of the warrior, you do so in the spirit of Washington — not of Genghis Khan. For Americans, only threat to our way of life justifies resort to conflict." - General of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower: Graduation Exercises at the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York, USA at 3 June 1947

Really, that just makes it the same as all his other videos.

He who oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God. ~ Proverbs 14:31

The problem here is expecting the truth from Regressives. Expect lies and they'll never disappoint. This guy must have studied under Breitbart.
