It seems former president Bill Clinton's progeny -- leftists -- have come back to bite him.
Thus far nearly 85,000 progressives -- not conservatives -- are circulating a Change.Org petition calling for the former president's arrest for "egregious violations of campaign laws." The American Mirror reports:
Clinton was seen visiting multiple voting locations in Massachusetts on Tuesday. One woman claimed he effectively shut down one polling place for two hours. He addressed the crowd with a bullhorn with the mayor at his side.
At another, he greeted voters mere feet from the voting booths.
Now, activists are calling for Clinton’s “immediate arrest” for “clear, knowing and egregious violation of the campaign laws to swing an election in a significant way.”
The Change.org petition, has garnered nearly 85,00 signatures and counting. It reads, in part:
It could not be any clearer in the Massachusetts General Laws. “Campaigning within 150 feet of a polling station, or in any way interfering with the right to vote”. Choosing the critical battleground state of Massachusetts, Bill Clinton should immediately be subject to arrest and prosecution. 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.
We, the undersigned, respectfully ask that you honor the democratic process with all the dignity it deserves, and hold Bill Clinton accountable for the felony of his actions.
Speaking to Russia Today, Massachusetts Sec. of State William Gavin said, “We had to remind everybody what the rules are, that there is no campaigning within 150 feet of the voting booths because people are entitled to their privacy.”
“And it’s not just him but his media entourage.”
The RT report continues:
Galvin’s office called New Bedford ahead of Clinton’s stop, telling poll workers, “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.”
That was where he appeared outside to address the crowd.
“He completely blocked this poll for a good half hour at least,” Grace tells the American Herald Tribune. “Mayor Mitchell was instrumental in putting this whole thing on, and he endorsed Hillary right smack in front of the doorway to the voting poll.”
“I am sick with how much corruption there is going on. I don’t know what the answer is but we’re going up against a lot,” Grace added
