Jennifer Longoria: The Woman in the Battleground Texas Video
Meet Jennifer Longoria, a Battleground Texas Field Organizer in San Antonio.
Battleground Texas is an organization founded by Obama’s former national field director Jeremy Bird and is staffed by largely former Obama campaign operatives.
Their goal? To flip Texas to a democratic state in order to win elections not just in 2014, but for years to come.
Longoria is a Deputy Registrar, which means she can sign people up to vote. Empowering people to vote is always a good thing and a principle this country stands on.
What this country doesn’t stand on however is breaking the law to win elections.
Project Veritas caught Longoria on tape copying detailed information off voter registration forms including phone numbers, which is illegal. We didn’t catch this happening just once or twice, but over and over again.
Longoria has been working for Battleground Texas since June of 2013. One has to wonder just how much voter information she’s illegally stolen since then.
Even worse, Longoria holds trainings for others to become Deputy Registrars, undoubtedly teaching others to commit the same crime and steal personal data from Texans.
But why is this data just so important?
Well Longoria said it best, “When you register someone to vote and you let them go the chance of them actually voting is 15%. But if you register them to vote and touch back with them one time that 15% jumps to 60%. That second time you touch base with them it jumps to 75%.”
It’s how President Obama won in 2008 and 2012. High-quality data, that is.
But if a major organization such as Battleground Texas, run by President Obama’s national field director, is illegally obtaining that data, it makes you wonder how President Obama obtained his data.
Lt. Governor David Dewhurst has demanded an investigation into Battleground Texas’ illegal data mining and this isn’t the first-time Project Veritas has caught them in hot water. Almost immediately after Lt. Governer Dewhurst's demand, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott recused himself and sent the case to be investigated by the Bexar County District Attorney's office.
Perhaps the most shocking however is Battleground Texas’ response, or lack thereof. They aren’t saying much, instead attacking myself--not addressing the illegality of what they are doing.
The thing is, deflection only works for so long.
Battleground Texas will be forced to account for their illegal activity. Sadly, this certainly isn’t all Project Veritas has caught them doing.
