Before we get to the reaction of Eric Holder’s office to the video from James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, here’s a little background on the video for those who are unfamiliar with the story:

In a shocking new video exclusive to Breitbart.com, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas demonstrates to the Attorney General of the United States, Eric Holder, just why he should be concerned about lack of voter ID laws – by walking into Holder’s voting precinct and showing the world that anyone can obtain Eric Holder’s ballot. Literally.

Here’s a quick flashback reminder of the words of Attorney General Holder from March of this year during an interview in which he said there was “no proof” that US elections are marred by vote fraud:

Attorney General Eric Holder dismissed any belief of in-person voter fraud damaging American elections Tuesday evening, a day after the Justice Department blocked Texas’ photo voter ID law.

In an interview with NBC Nightly News’ Pete Williams, Holder reiterated his previous comments before Congress labeling photo ID laws a “solution in search of a problem” and emphasized the importance of being allowed to vote.

“What were talking here is a constitutional right,” he said. “This is not a privilege. The right to vote is something that fundamental to who we are as Americans. We have people who have given their lives, people have sacrificed a great deal in order for people to have the right to vote. It’s what distinguishes the United States from most other countries.”

So, all qualified citizens have the constitutional right to vote… but do they all have the constitutional right to vote as somebody else? Here’s the video of an election worker handing a man a ballot that would have allowed him to vote as Eric Holder. You’d think it might cause the DoJ to believe that the solution has found its problem:

It would have been interesting to see what would have happened if the same guy went back in five minutes later and asked about some other well known person from that district to see if he could do it again.

Naturally the Department of Justice was so shocked and outraged that somebody could have so easily gained access to the Attorney General’s ballot that they are re-thinking their stance on voter ID.

Just kidding…

A DOJ official responds to a video released by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas that shows a D.C. poll worker offering Attorney General Eric Holder’s ballot to an undercover activist:

“It’s no coincidence that these so-called examples of rampant voter fraud consistently turn out to be manufactured ones.”

In other words, there wouldn’t be any holes in the system if conservative activists would stop pointing them out.
