An undercover video by James O’Keefe’s conservative nonprofit Project Veritas caught a NYC Democratic elections board member telling the truth about voter fraud and Mayor de Blasio’s ID cards.
At a United Federation of Teachers holiday party on December 16, 2015, Manhattan Board of Elections Commissioner Alan Schulkin didn’t realize he was being recorded when an undercover journalist started asking him questions about voter fraud.
He said there is a lot of voter fraud, including campaigns who bus people around to vote in certain neighborhoods, going from poll site to poll site.
When asked “what kind of neighborhoods?” he didn’t want to say, but when she asked him, “Oh, like minority neighborhoods, like black and Hispanic neighborhoods?” he said, “Yes, and Chinese.”
He said they can’t asked people for voter ID in New York, but admits it should be required.
Schulkin said there are “thousands” of fraudulent absentee ballots, and “I know where they came from.”
“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.”
He admits that Hillary Clinton does not support voter ID laws, and said de Blasio has come up with the voter ID cards, in lieu of drivers’ license that you can use for anything, “but they didn’t vet the people to see who they really are…. Anybody can go there in there and say I’m Joe Smith and I want an ID card.”
She asked him if he’s voting for Hillary, and he said, “I wouldn’t, but I have no choice.”
He said the Muslims come in with a burqa on, and you have no idea who they are.
She asked him, “Are you sure you’re a Democrat?” and Schulkin replied, “Sometimes I’m not.”
The New York Post reported that when Schulkin was asked about the incident Monday evening, he stood by his remarks, for the most part, only saying, “I should have said ‘potential fraud’ instead of ‘fraud.’”
