The son of Democratic congressman Jim Moran of Virginia has resigned from his father's campaign after a conservative group released an undercover video in which he discusses a plan to cast fraudulent ballots.

Patrick Moran had been a field director for his father's re-election campaign.

The resignation came hours after an organization led by activist James O'Keefe, Project Veritas, released a video showing an undercover operative pitching a voter-fraud plan to Patrick Moran. The plan called for casting ballots in the name of 100 voters who were registered but rarely voted.

In the video, Patrick Moran expresses doubts about the plan but eventually tells the undercover volunteer to "look into it."

Jim Moran's campaign office released a statement calling the incident an error in judgment.
