Not realizing he was being filmed during an exchange with a journalist during a United Federation of Teachers holiday party in December 2015, Schulkin was caught defending voter ID laws and making comments that sounded distinctly contrary to policies the Democrat Party defends. But perhaps what’s most interesting about the video, which was filmed and released by James O’Keefe’s group, Project Veritas, is Schulkin’s comments regarding the Democratic Party’s tactics during election season.
“People don’t realize,” Schulkin confessed, “[that in] certain neighborhoods in particular, they bus people around to vote.” Asked to clarify, he added:
“They put them in a bus and go from poll site to poll site.”
Asked which neighborhoods he was referring to, Schulkin did not want to elaborate. But the unnamed Veritas journalist didn’t back down, mentioning black and Hispanic neighborhoods. That’s when Schulkin added, “Yeah . . . and Chinese, too.”
Asked why Democrats took part in this type of effort, he answered:
“For votes. More votes for themselves. They’re all running for office.”
While he failed to specify which type of candidates took on this approach, he claimed candidates running “for the Assembly, for whatever. They get buses and move people around.”
When discussing the subject of absentee ballot fraud, Schulkin hinted at the Democrats’ “good intentions,” claiming the lack of rules allows for “thousands of absentee ballots,” though he says he doesn’t “know where they came from.” He added that people are often allowed to “cover their faces” to avoid being identified when voting, which may give voters the opportunity to vote several times without being caught.
“The Muslims can do that,” he added, “[y]ou don’t know who they are. … I mean, I know everything is done with good intentions, but a lot of bad results.”
Asked to comment on the release of the tape and whether he regrets making those comments, Schulkin told the New York Post he stood by his remarks. Nevertheless, he added that he “should have said ‘potential fraud’ instead of ‘fraud.’”
Election Fraud: Straight Out of ‘Gangs of New York’
In the Martin Scorsese film, Gangs of New York, voters are depicted being dragged out of bars and shoved into election offices. Then, they come out, shave or change, and get back in line to vote one more time.
In 19th century America, this was common practice. Political parties would “kidnap voters, feed them alcohol or drugs and force them to vote multiple times dressed in various disguises,” Atlas Obscura explains. This practice was known as “cooping,” and it was widely used to guarantee particular outcomes during election seasons.
As we have learned thanks to WikiLeaks, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) has been actively and directly involved with election rigging practices in recent months. With this video, we now have a better idea of other tactics being employed by modern-day politicians to guarantee their victories.
