Videographer James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas caught an official for President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign helping who she thought was an Obama supporter set herself up to vote more than once in November.
Reporter: And there's no way they'd be able to cross reference the ballots?
Obama Campaign: If you voted twice?
Obama Campaign: I don't know this. That's not my expertise.
Reporter: Yea I don't want to get in any trouble but like I said if no one's gonna know Reporter: I don't have a problem with it.
Reporter: Yea, so anyway - But -
Obama Campaign: Oh my God this is so funny. It's cool though!
Reporter: But I was gonna see as far as all the registering for Florida -
Obama Campaign: Mhm Reporter: Where do I get the forms to do that?
Reporter: Or not registering but voting in Florida for the absentee -
Obama Campaign: So what you'll have to do is you're going to call in to Florida.
Reporter: Okay. Obama Campaign: And call - Let me see.
Obama Campaign: Are you going to do what I think you are going to do?
Reporter: Well I mean if no one's gonna know - Obama Campaign: Laughter Obama Campaign: You're so hilarious!
Because his work has become widely seen as deceptive, O'Keefe's initial success in gaining extensive media attention caused controversy and discussions of journalistic standards. By the summer of 2011, his claims to have uncovered widespread Medicaid fraud, purportedly documented on videos released in Maine and other locations, were treated with more skepticism by the media and governmental officials. For instance, the Maine governor Paul Lepage said that the video could help improve staff training, but it did not show evidence of a worker trying to defraud the welfare system.

In alot of states in the U.S you don't need to present an I.D to vote, so I guess that makes it kinda hard to have a real account about who actually votes legitimately.
