Police in Arlington County, Va., have launched a criminal probe to investigate the voter fraud controversy swirling around the son of Democratic Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.).
Patrick Moran, 23, resigned Wednesday as field director for his father’s reelection campaign after conservative activists released video footage in which the younger Moran appears to discuss options for skirting voter ID laws with undercover operatives posing as campaign volunteers.
Less than 24 hours after the video’s release, Arlington County investigators announced that they’re looking into the matter.
“The Arlington County Commonwealth Attorney’s Office and the Arlington County Police Department have been made aware of a video released yesterday allegedly depicting Patrick Moran, former Director of Field Operations for the Jim Moran for Congress campaign organization, assisting another to vote illegally,” police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck said Thursday afternoon in a statement.
“The Arlington County Police Department has initiated a criminal investigation of this matter.”
It seems to me that there isn’t going much to this legally, as no crime was actually omitted. However, it does show that fraud isn’t far from the minds of Democrats, and the seem to have little difficulty figuring out how it may done.
But, as we all know. Voter fraud simply doesn’t happen.
