Undercover video showed discussions of "busing" in voters and inciting violence at Republican rallies.
"I am unwilling to become a distraction to the important task of electing [Hillary] Clinton, and defeating Donald Trump in the upcoming election," Creamer wrote in a statement.
The Democratic National Committee denied any knowledge of the schemes discussed in the video, and if you believe the DNC, you might be interested in this bridge I have for sale in Brooklyn.
Snuffies like Creamer and Foval don't commit such egregious acts without the blessings of the campaign.
"The practices described in the video by this temporary sub-contractor do not in any way comport with out long standing policies on organizing events, and those statements and sentiments do not represent the values that the Committee holds dear," DNC interim Chairwoman Donna (CNN) Brazile said of Foval.
The two "Rigging the Election" videos were produced by James O'Keefe, a controversial activist. The videos were 32 minutes total in time and were released in two, edited portions on Monday and Tuesday.
An undercover filmmaker posed as a campaign donor and is seen trying to engage Foval and Creamer in talking about voter fraud and other schemes. Creamer doesn't go for it, but Foval sings like a bird.
"It's a very easy thing for Republicans to say, 'Well, they're busing people in' . . .We've been busing people in to deal with you f***ing a**h***s for 50 years and we're not going to stop now, we're just going to find a different way to do it," Foval brags. He implies that using personal vehicles for each voter arouses less suspicion than busing large numbers of people from out of state at one time.
Foval also talks about planting people at Republican rallies for Trump. The people chosen are there to incite violence and are trained and given scripts to stick to, said Foval.
"I mean honestly, it is not hard to get some of these a**h***s to pop off," he said. "It's a matter of showing up, to want to get into the rally, in a Planned Parenthood tee-shirt. Or, Trump is a Nazi, you know? You can message to draw them out, and draw them to punch you."
Foval was not referring to himself getting punched, but mentally ill people work well in that area.
Foval worked as a sub-contractor for Creamer's group, which was contracted with the DNC since June of this year. But a DNC source, sounding a lot like Sergeant Schultz on "Hogan's Heroes" said that Foval was not a DNC employee.
["Vee see nuthink. Vee know nuthink. He ees no vurker uf hours. Go from here."]
That bridge is still for sale.
Zac Petkanas, a Clinton campaign spokesman said, "While Project Veritas has been known to offer misleading video out of context, some of the language and tactics referenced in the video are troubling [especially now that it's public] even as a theory or proposal never executed."
Make an offer and the bridge is yours.
Creamer is shown in the video being asked about getting around voter registration laws for Hispanics, but later said in a statement that none of the schemes described in the conversation on video ever took place. ["We just like to talk about stuff without actually doing stuff."]
O'Keefe has been criticized for heavily editing and manipulating his videos in the past. In 2010, while attempting to gain access to Sen. Mary Landrieu's office in Louisiana, he was caught and arrested. He was charged with a misdemeanor and sentenced to 3 years probation.
"The discredited source of these videos, James O'Keefe, is a convicted criminal with a history of doctoring video to advance his ideological agenda," Brazile said. "We are in the process of conducting an internal investigation to determine whether he and his cohorts committed any illegal activities in this well-funded operation."
Well, Ms. Brazile, if a burglar breaks into a home and sees someone about to be murdered and reports it and stops the murder, the burglar is still a burglar and the murderer is still a murderer. But at least the murderer was caught, just like Foval and Creamer.
We aren't buying your bridge.
