Voter Fraud Watch: Sekulow Says International Observers Monitoring U.S. Vote Is Like a Script From a 'Borat' Movie

Is this a joke?

That's what legal expert Jay Sekulow wanted to know today on America Live, as he discussed the issue of international election monitors coming to several U.S. states to observe the voting process Tuesday.

The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) is sending 44 election monitors to the U.S., including from countries

like Azerbaijan, Albania and Kyrgyzstan.

Iowa and Texas officials have threatened to arrest international monitors if they get too close to the voting booths. But the groups say they are actually immune from many U.S. laws.

Sekulow says these observers, some of whom want to check voters' identities against a list from the state, have no right to be there. He said authorities should remove them from the premises if they get too close to voters.

Sekulow, chief counsel for the American Center For Law & Justice, also pointed out that these groups are there in connection with Democrats' concerns over voter ID laws leading to voter suppression.

"These groups are coordinating with the NAACP and Project Vote, which is an ACORN group. ... (International observers) have been there since 2002 - they skipped 2008, I guess they thought that one wasn't going to be so close. They're here at this one because this is going to be a close election," he said.

Sekulow said the notion of international observers at a U.S. election is "absurd," and the situation sounds like a 'Borat' movie script.
