CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A firestorm is erupting over several videos taken at Charlotte polling sites, according to WSOC-TV.

A national videographer claims the videos show campaign workers breaking the law by encouraging undocumented immigrants to vote.

One video shows a worker with Project Veritas talking to Greg Amick, former campaign manager for sheriff candidate Irwin Carmichael. A woman who said she was registered to vote, but claimed to be undocumented, asked him if she was allowed to vote.

Carmichael said undocumented immigrants should not be voting. He said Amick made that clear to the woman who approached him.

“That’s edited out where he says, ‘You need to go inside and talk to the board of elections,’” said Carmichael.

He said the video is misleading, but James O’Keefe, founder of the nonprofit, said North Carolina election officials should take it seriously.
