Police in Arlington, Va., say they have launched a criminal investigation following the release of undercover video showing the son of Rep. Jim Moran, D-Va., discussing a plan to cast fraudulent ballots.

Patrick Moran resigned Wednesday as field director of his father's campaign after Project Veritas, an organization led by conservative activist James O'Keefe, released the video.

It showed 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 volunteer to "look into it."

Patrick Moran has said he thought the person who approached him was unstable and that he was only humoring him.
