Two democratic operatives have lost their jobs following the release of James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas Action’s video series “Rigging the Election.” This video series created by undercover journalists who used hidden cameras to film Robert Creamer and Scott Foval. Foval and Creamer, the husband of Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill), have proven to be party influencers. In these videos Foval explains how an organization would cover up in-person voter fraud and Creamer explained how voter IDs are distributed to bring people in from other areas to vote in an election.
Since the release of the videos Creamer has stepped down from his work on the Democratic campaigns and Americans United for Change fired Foval. Democracy Partners claims, “Our firm has recently been the victim of a well-funded systematic spy operation that is the modern day equivalent of the Watergate burglars.” O’Keefe and PVAction have been criticized before for doctoring videos and going undercover to create false accusations. It also isn’t the first time Creamer has been investigated – in 2006 he was sentenced to five months in federal prison for bank fraud and tax violation.
