Hillary Clinton once again brazenly violated New York State election laws by campaigning within 100 feet of a polling place.
A Reuters video (unembeddable but check it out here) shows Hillary and Bill Clinton greeting voters outside their polling precinct and posing for photos inside the building.
The law clearly states that candidates cannot engage in electioneering or display any political signs in the vicinity of a polling station.
NY Election Law on electioneering: While the polls are open no person shall do any electioneering within the polling place, or in any public street, within a one hundred foot radial measured from the entrances designated by the inspectors of election, to such polling place or within such distance in any place in a public manner; and no political banner, button, poster or placard shall be allowed in or upon the polling place or within such one hundred foot radial. (N.Y. Election Law § 8-104(1))
“Campaign signs and stickers are clearly visible,” notes Kyle Olsen.
However, this is not the first time that the Clinton campaign appears to have broken the law.
Back on March 1, a voting location in New Bedford, Massachusetts was locked down to accommodate a visit by Bill Clinton.
“They are affecting the voting at this poll. It’s ridiculous. It’s fraud and illegal,” stated the voter who filmed the footage below. “From one side of the street to the other, there’s no way anybody can get down here to vote.”
New Bedford Mayor Jon F. Mitchell then campaigned for Clinton during a bullhorn speech, another violation of Massachusetts law which states that, “Within 150 feet of a polling place…no person shall solicit votes for or against, or otherwise promote or oppose, any person or political party or position on a ballot question, to be voted on at the current election.”
