 Apparently the DC Elections Board didn’t find a recent activist video about  voter fraud very funny.

The undercover video posted online triggered a DC Board of Elections investigation Tuesday, according to the Associated Press. The video showed an unidentified member of Project Veritas attempting to vote as U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder at a D.C.  polling station.

The AP quotes board members as saying the voting booth is “sacrosanct” and isn’t the place to debate or try to influence policy questions, such as voter ID laws.

In this latest video from activist James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, DC’s lack of ID requirement is brought under scrutiny. The board said the incident on video was fraud but acknowledges it’s not clear whether the actions could lead to prosecution. The activist insisted on leaving to get an ID before accepting Holder’s ballot.

Four conservative activists including political prankster James O’Keefe,  pleaded guilty Wednesday in federal court to misdemeanor charges stemming from their prank in January to tamper with Sen. Mary Landrieu’s office phones in New Orleans, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reported.

O’Keefe, the group leader and the most prominent of the four, was sentenced to three years probation, 100 hours of community service and fined a $1,500 fine, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reported.

He gained notoriety for wearing a pimp costume in a video that embarrassed ACORN and exposed some less than admirable traits — or at least less than admirable employees — of the non-profit organization.

The other three people were sentenced to  two years probation, 75 hours of community service and fined them $1,500, the paper reported.. They pleaded guilty to entering real property belonging to the United States under false pretenses.

O’Keefe tried using his cell phone to capture two men posing as telephone repairmen in the Senator’s office.

The defendants said in court they did not intend to commit a crime, the Picayune reported.
