Yes, but that wasn’t their response. As Twitchy reported, James O’Keefe and Project Veritas released two bombshell videos today. The videos exposed Obama campaign staffers facilitating and encouraging voter fraud. In multiple states; this is no isolated incident.

Silence. But, there is not silence from the House Judiciary Committee. Chairman Lamar Smith is demanding action.

Part of Rep. Smith’s statement, from The Daily Caller:

“Contrary to the statements of the Obama campaign staffer, voter fraud is neither ‘cool’ nor ‘hilarious,’” Smith added. “It is a very serious crime that undermines the integrity of our electoral process and threatens the future of our democracy. Obama campaign staffers who encouraged voters to violate the law and cast fraudulent ballots should be fired. And rather than seeking to block commonsense voter ID laws, the Obama administration should support efforts by states to ensure the integrity of our elections.”

Bingo.

And guess what else? Team Obama remains conspicuously silent. The Daily Caller received no answer to request for comments from DNC’s Brad Woodhouse. Nor from Ben LaBolt. Nor from the spokeswoman for the Department of Justice. And lookie here! Here is what Brad Woodhouse and Ben LaBolt are busy with instead.

#GottaVote? He means twice. At least.

OFA’s Ben LaBolt is far too busy obsessing over abortion. He’s been retweeting gems like this.

What criminal acts? Oh, look, Lady parts!

This Twitter liberal, of course, attempts to spin it away. But The Daily Caller’s Matthew Boyle smacks that right down. With, you know, truth and evidence.

The sane agree with Rep. Smith and are praising his words.

And we do. Thank goodness for happy warriors who continue to do the job that “real journalists” refuse to do.

    Look at the O’Keefe video, he thumbnails at least 15 video clips at 5:55. He taunts media to call it an “isolated” incident.

  • bonnieblue2A

    Fired, really? She should be charged and prosecuted for voter fraud!

    • EastValleyConservative

      Exactly. Voter fraud is a criminal act.

        But, but…the “real” journalists tell us it doesn’t happen.

      • zen

        Sure, but laughing while you do it absolves you.

    • submandave

      AG Holder’s to do list:
      1. Find the real killer behind Fast & Furious
      2. Investigate voter fraud

      He’ll get right on that…

  • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

    I’m waiting for the White House spokesperson, Cher, to comment. It should be…something.

  • IMPEACH BOBO NOW !!!

    Can you all imagine how many people are doing this out there, now it makes sense how President BOBO won in 2008, VOTER FRAUD !!!!!!! From the looks of it there still looks like there are holes in the system & it looks like mostly the absentee ballots seem to be the problem too !!!!!!!!!
    There was a article on FOX NEWS a month ago about how one of BOBO’s headquarters sent out 5 MILLION absentee ballots all filled out all that had to be done was for them to be signed !! Only one problem with some of these ballots though, some contained [email protected] relatives names, womens maiden names, cat & dogs names using their owners last names, HERE WE GO AGAIN !!!!!!!

    BOBO knows VOTER FRAUD isn’t going to happen at the voting booths this time because of all the scrutiny at voting booth, so now he found another way to do it, absentee ballots !!!!! My bigger problem with these absentee ballots is we only found out about these ballots because some of the voters seen they were fraudulent ballots & turned them into authorities, what about the ones that were just signed & sent in to count as a LEGAL vote, thats INSANE !!!!!!!!!

    Let’s let literally anyone other than known media scamster James O’Keefe review the evidence before firing people. Hopefully raw footage exists still.

  • DANEgerus

    Fired? Really? It was so clearly routine… perhaps someone should interview their superiors?

  • rant stocks

    I’ve been posting this for the last 6 months,that this election will very well be Corrupt in some way.If Obama can spend a Million bucks to lockdown any and everything about him, he can do the same with this election.

  • Paul C.

    Just another NAIL in the coffin of corruption.

  • Todd Hill

    It didn’t take long for someone (“Aestro” in this case) to throw out an implication that O’Keefe manufactured this narrative in a Mary Mapes-style conspiracy. I agree that if raw footage exists, it should be released. If it’s anything like the APORN … err, ACORN prostitution scandal, the raw footage should be even more entertaining and damaging.

    Keep in mind, however, that the MSM’s already tried to pin a lone incident of voter registration problems in Florida on Romney. Strategic Allied Consulting was the guilty party, but unfortunately because it was tied to the Florida GOP, the press assumes (usually via implication) that Romney has culpability. Thus, it means that this one incident gives the DNC a ‘moral equivalency’ club to wield in an attempt to dismiss all of O’Keefe’s efforts…

    I expect the MSM to bury the whole thing, but if they’re forced to cover O’Keefe’s story, they’ll couch it as isolated incidents and the replay the Florida SAC story endlessly to diminish the idea of voter fraud being just a tool of the DNC.

  • MeanGranny

    Voter fraud is the ONLY way these jokers can steal elections. They don’t want voter ID because it will prevent them from voting 50 times.

  • GEORGE_W_TUSH

    The
    typical Republican Party reply to criticism
    of its voter suppression efforts is that they are attempts to crack down on
    rampant voter fraud. The problem is that there is extremely little voter fraud,
    and from 2002 to 2007 the Bush Justice Department
    was unable to prosecute a single case. This has not stopped the GOP, and in
    2006 the Justice Department fired two U.S.
    attorneys for refusing to pursue trumped-up voter fraud cases

    !Hey GOP if you want to defeat President
    Obama..do so honestly. Why change the rules now… are you afraid of something?

  • BeeKaaay

    Gee, you don’t suppose the house Judiciary committee will hold hearings, televised on CNN, and investigate this?

    NAAAH.

    Corruptocrats, the whole lot of them.
