A woman donned a ‘full burka’ and posed as longtime Clinton aide Huma Abedin at a New York City polling station in an attempt to prove the ease with which voter fraud is committed.

The video, created by Project Veritas, was posted on YouTube just one day before the elections showing the ‘undercover’ woman being given an affidavit paper ballot to vote under Abedin’s name.
It is unclear when the clip was filmed, but a federal judge ruled on Friday night that the New York City Board of Elections must provide affidavit ballots to all voters whose names do not appear on the registration rolls.
While the poll worker handed the Abedin impostor an affidavit ballot as mandated by the order, what the video did not make clear was that paper ballots are verified against BOE records before they are counted.
Project Veritas released videos in October suggesting Democrats hired people to incite violence at Donald Trump’s rallies. One Democratic operative was fired as a result, and another stepped down.
But James O’Keefe, the conservative behind Project Veritas, a group that claims to ‘investigate and expose corruption’, has also been repeatedly slammed for being a ‘hoax artist’ for his heavily edited videos.
The video posted on Monday showed a woman who claimed to be a journalist heading to a polling station in New York City and giving her name as ‘Huma Abedin’.
In edited footage interspersed throughout the three-minute clip, a woman’s voice can be heard talking to Alan Schulkin, Commissioner of the Board of Elections, at a holiday party in 2015, claiming that voter fraud would be easy to accomplish with the help of a burka.
While the YouTube video title claims the woman wore a ‘full burka’, her face is shown at the beginning of the video in a hijab, and Abedin does not wear any religious garments.
Back at the polling station, the woman was eventually told by one official: ‘Your name is not in the book. For some reason, it’s not here, but that doesn’t mean you can’t vote by paper ballot. You just can’t vote by machine.’
The impostor then asked: ‘Okay, so I can vote today?’
The poll worker responded: ‘By paper, yes.’
When she was finally handed a paper vote, the impostor pulled back and said she would return after making a call to her husband, Anthony, in a reference to the disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner, Abedin’s real-life husband.
In the video footage from the holiday party, Sculkin also talked about voter fraud and verified the woman’s claims, saying: ‘Your vote isn’t really counting because they can go in there with a burka on and you don’t know if they are a voter.’
Edited together, the video suggested voter fraud is rampant and easy to accomplish.
While voter fraud certainly exists, the ‘experiment’ was misleading, because paper ballots are then vetted against BOE records before they are actually counted.
On Friday, federal judge Nicholas Garaufis signed a hand-written notice that requires the BOE in New York to actively disperse its new affidavit ballot policy to poll workers.
The order read: ‘If you believe you are registered to vote, and your name does not appear in the poll book, you are entitled to an affidavit ballot. Your vote may be counted.’
So while the poll worker handed the Abedin impostor an affidavit ballot, it did not mean it would be automatically accepted, since paper ballots are verified against BOE records first.
The new ruling also gave the following directive to poll workers: ‘You must also advise the individual that he or she receive notice as to the status of whether the ballot was counted.’
Donald Trump has repeatedly suggested the presidential election is being fixed against him by Clinton supporters, the media and even polling place workers.
