Apr 8, 2016 (RALEIGH) — In a soft roll out today, the Voter Integrity Project, announced the release of their first draft of a preview or “trailer” to the documentary they have had in the works since 2012, about voter impersonation fraud.
“This is the type of fraud that the wizards of smart assure us doesn’t exist,” said Jay DeLancy, Director of VIP, “but we’ve accumulated enough evidence to the contrary. This film needed to be made.”
While the group has still not released the name of the movie, the trailer is missing many of the trappings normally expected in such a two- to three-minute teaser film. The camera work and sound are other aspects of the film that point to its authenticity.
How the Documentary Got Started
“This project got started after one person too many came up to us with compelling eyewitness accounts of vote fraud,” said DeLancy, “so we shot some of the most consequential segments in on a spur of the moment, with cell phones, never realizing it would come to this.”
The trailer begins with the back story on VIP and includes a montage of various media figures saying, “the Voter Integrity Project,” while doing stories about the group, which was co-founded in 2011 by DeLancy and John Pizzo, a Six Sigma blackbelt quality engineer.
Several easily recognized media figures include FOX News’ Gretchen Carlson and Eric Shawn, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and investigative journalist, James O’Keefe; but the trailer ends on a more somber note, as a man describes how he interviewed another man who was travelling through North Carolina on an expense paid vacation that required him to register to vote in North Carolina, along the way.
“Register to vote!?” said the witness, “I though you said you were from Ohio!”
“He said, ‘yeah…we just had to register to vote.'”
“And I said, ‘did you actually come back to vote for the election?'”
“And he said ‘no, no somebody else did that.'”
Delancy said, “this disturbing clip changed our lives so badly, that we immediately showed it to law enforcement officials in three states. We hope it will finally pull back the curtain on this subject.”
The group plans to release a finalized version of the trailer “any day now,” that will also include the name, which has been a closely guarded secret.
“We’re hoping to compete this movie in film festivals, under the short documentary category,” said DeLancy. “Lord willing, the film will be ready early this summer.”
