James O'Keefe attacks Minnesota voter ID laws [VIDEO]

Right-wing prankster James O'Keefe, known best for hidden-camera takedown of ACORN, is taking on Minnesota's voter ID laws.

O'Keefe and Project Veritas released a video earlier this week in which they try to register Tim Tebow and Tom Brady with some not-so-football-savvy Minnesota officials. At one point, one Scott County employee (who we imagine is having an unpleasant week at work) admits that election officials often complain that they can only catch voter fraud "after the fact."

"It's like, change the law! Change the law!" she says.

In January, Project Veritas pulled a similar stunt in New Hampshire, in which they actually procured ballots under false pretenses. Talking Points Memo interviewed some legal experts, including Hamline University's David Schultz, who suggest this could be illegal.

Here's the full video:
