Clinton’s former top campaign lawyer is behind a lawsuit to halt the new voter ID law. Socialist George Soros has backed other lawsuits opposing voter ID and has given millions to Clinton’s campaign.
The League of Woman Voters and three individuals are suing the state of New Hampshire in an attempt to block a law on voter registration that includes requirements such as providing a driver’s license to prove an individual’s primary residence is in the state and will be living in the state for a substantial time, the free beacon reports.
The lawsuit is supported by Priorities USA, the largest liberal super political action committee that backed Clinton’s campaign. Priorities received $9.5 million from Soros throughout the 2016 election cycle.
Marc Elias, a partner at the Washington, D.C.-based law firm Perkins Coie and Clinton’s former top campaign lawyer, is listed as an attorney on the New Hampshire lawsuit. Elias joined the board of Priorities earlier this year.
Elias led voter challenges in Virginia, Ohio, Wisconsin, and North Carolina while he was Clinton’s campaign lawyer, although he filed the lawsuits in his personal capacity as an attorney at Perkins Coie. His efforts were backed by millions from Soros.
It’s extremely easy to vote in New Hampshire and there are frequent accusations of voter fraud.
Last year, James O’Keefe released several videos of corrupt election officials in New Hampshire and Michigan. This first one shows Democrats explaining how to commit voter fraud.
In the next Project Veritas video below, Bernie Sanders campaign staff said they were illegally using the campaign office address to vote. [There were two videos].
The second video focuses on Hugo Palma, Mr. Sanders’ regional field director, who says on hidden camera that he had registered using the field office address in order to vote in the New Hampshire primary even though he lives in Colorado Springs.
Other staffers said the practice was commonplace. New Hampshire’s election law says that voters “must be domiciled” in the city or town in which they register and must sign an affidavit when registering agreeing that their domicile is “that place, to which upon temporary absence, a person has the intention of returning.”
In the second video, Mr. Palma made it clear he has no intention of returning to live in New Hampshire, saying, “This place sucks.”
“Why the [expletive] would I want to come back to New Hampshire? This place is a [expletive] show,” he says.
Another staffer said the “higher ups” in the campaign had encouraged them to vote in New Hampshire as long as they didn’t also vote in another state.
“Everyone else in the office is also like claiming domicile here,” said a woman identified as staffer Donna Waterman in an audio recording. “Even though that’s not true. Even though we are not planning on coming back, but it’s super, super easy to register in New Hampshire, because you bring in a piece of mail, and that’s claiming domicile.”
New Hampshire’s lax voting requirements, including same-day voter registration, spurred any number of voter-fraud complaints in 2016 and during other elections, including allegations of “drive-by” voting by non-residents who want to participate in the state’s early presidential primary.
Even so, Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan vetoed in July a bill that would have required voters to reside in the state for 30 days prior to an election, saying it constituted “unreasonable restrictions” on voting rights.
