      In North Carolina, you have to sign your name every time you vote.  Your signature can be compared to previous signatures, which are all within the view of the poll worker.

      As kos's own Joan McCarter shows, the fraudster would have preferred to show  i.d., rather than confirm his identity with a signature.

      Here's what the raw footage O'Keefe's minions took shows:
      "In the ensuing video clip, an O'Keefe operative at a polling place tells a poll worker, 'The name is Michael G. Bolton.' There is then a jump cut, and in the next clip the poll worker is telling the operative to sign or make a mark in the pollbook to affirm his identity. The operative then says he would feel more comfortable if he could show his photo ID, and leaves.
      Besides which, the poll worker, with suspicions aroused, let the widow know someone tried to vote in place of her son:
      Bolton told TPM that one of the polling watchers informed her that someone had tried to vote on behalf of her son when she went to vote. The poll watchers told her the individual acted weird and nervous. Her son returned to the polling station to vote later in the day. She found out about the Project Veritas video after her sister saw it on Facebook.
      Sounds like good eyesight and just plain old fashioned neighborliness trumped any number of i.d.s in this case.  What say you, Republicans?

      Tell me again that you believe in the power of the smallest unit of local government possible?

      Back in the "Real" America there was a 70% tax rate.
