On Thursday, TruthRevolt reported that former president Bill Clinton, husband of current presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, showed up to a polling station in New Bedford, Massachusetts on Super Tuesday while voting was underway. The problem is that it is illegal to campaign within 150 feet of voting booths in Massachusetts. And it wasn't just one polling location.
As of Thursday, we reported that an online petition calling for the arrest and prosecution of Bill Clinton for violation of Mass. election laws had reached 85,000 signatures. As of Friday morning, the petition has almost 97,600 signatures on it.
Sanders supporters are accusing the Clinton campaign of foul play.
"I am 100 percent done with the cheating Clintons. They need to be stopped before they destroy our country. #BernieOrBust," read one comment on the petition.
"The people are tired of the Clinton's breaking the laws and walking away winners when they have clearly cheated! Hillary should lose the state or 50% of her votes and all delegates she picked up and Bill should be arrested!" commented another signer.
Hillary barely beat Sanders in the state of Massachusetts, garnering 50.1% of the vote while Sanders received 48.7%.
Massachusetts Secretary of State Bill Galvin admitted Bill Clinton was allowed inside polling locations but that poll workers were warned about the law.
"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," he said.
The Freedom Center is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Therefore we do not endorse political candidates either in primary or general elections. However, as defenders of America’s social contract, we insist that the rules laid down by both parties at the outset of campaigns be respected, and that the results be decided by free elections. We will oppose any attempt to rig the system and deny voters of either party their constitutional right to elect candidates of their choice.
