The son of Rep. Jim Moran has resigned from his father's campaign for apparently condoning voter fraud. In the lead-up to Election Day 2012, both Democrats and Republicans have had such episodes.
With less than two weeks before Election Day, charges of voter fraud continue to mount up.
The latest involves the son of US Rep. James Moran (D) of Virginia – Patrick Moran, Representative Moran’s campaign field director – shown on a secretly taped video apparently discussing a plan to use forged documents to cast ballots for 100 registered voters who seldom vote.
In the latest video, Patrick Moran is shown going along with a man posing as a campaign worker who urges the use of voter fraud. At first Mr. Moran suggests the man’s time would be better spent on the campaign’s legal get-out-the-vote effort, but then he is drawn into discussing ways to fraudulently pad voting rolls, including the use of forged utility bills.
