In just two days, almost 100,000 people have signed a petition called “Arrest & Prosecute Bill Clinton for Violation of Mass. Election Laws.” This morning the website change.org showed that 60,000 people had already signed, and that number is expected to double by Friday.
This petition comes after the Super Tuesday dirty tricks scandal committed by beloved ex-President, Bill Clinton. Bill was in Massachusetts campaigning for his wife Hillary during Super Tuesday, and he managed to ruffle many feathers by blatantly breaking Massachusetts voting laws that say no one can pander to voters within 150 feet of polling stations.
According to Massachusetts voting laws, the following is prohibited:
“campaigning within 150 feet of a polling station, or in any way interfering with the right to vote.“
Mr. Clinton was spotted at AT LEAST 4 different polling stations in that state, and while you may be thinking this petition is made up of Donald Trump fans, you’d be shocked at the number of liberals who have signed as well. For once, people are pissed at the Clintons for good reason. Dirty politics should have no place in an American election; we are too good for that. If you can’t win by playing fair and following the rules, you are simply not the best person for the job.
Secretary of State William Galvin told New York Times that he:
“..had to remind some of our poll workers that even a president can’t go inside and work a polling place. He can go in, but he can’t approach voters.”
“We just took the extra precaution of telling them because this is not a usual occurrence. You don’t usually get a president doing this.”
According to the petition:
“Bill Clinton was not only electioneering within the boundary. Although the spokesperson for Bill Clinton denies that he was ever inside a polling place, photos and video show him clearly greeting and talking up election workers inside. After being told to refrain from this activity, which is a 3rd degree Voter Violation Felony, for which Clinton indeed must have known the law and chose to violate it, Bill Clinton does not vote in Massachusetts, and would have no other business in a polling station on election day besides campaigning for his wife.”
The mayor of Boston, Marty Walsh, says that Bill Clinton was not campaigning for Hillary when he showed up to four polling stations on Super Tuesday. However, I’m not quite sure what else Bill Clinton would be doing on the campaign trail other than campaigning…maybe it’s just me.
You judge for yourself; watch the video below of Bill Clinton shaking the hands of poll workers.. inside a polling station.. while votes were being cast. But yea, he probably just saw all the hoopla while out running his Tuesday errands and decided to see what all the fuss was about. There’s no way he was campaigning just by being there and being Bill Clinton. Once a cheater, always a cheater.
