Over 60,000 People Want Bill Clinton Arrested for Violating Election Laws on Super Tuesday

(ANTIMEDIA) More than 60,000 people are calling for the arrest and prosecution of former president Bill Clinton, alleging he violated election laws by entering multiple polling stations in Boston and other Massachusetts areas on Tuesday. A Change.org petition launched that same evening calls on the state’s attorney general, Maura Healey, to take action against Clinton, though the Secretary of State insists his behavior was lawful.

The petition says the Bill Clinton made a “clear, knowing and egregious violation of the campaign laws to swing an election in a significant way,” alluding to Massachusetts General Laws and procedures that prohibit “[c]ampaigning within 150 feet of a polling station, or in any way interfering with the right to vote. According to state voting procedures, “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.”

Secretary of State William Galvin told the New York Times his office “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.”

He continued: “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.”

WVBC, a local ABC affiliate, reported that Brian McNiff, a spokesperson for Galvin, “clarified that Clinton broke no laws during his visits to the interior of polling places because he was not handing out any flyers or voting materials for Hillary Clinton.”

Clinton also entered polling centers in West Roxbury and Newton, and attended an event outside a polling center in New Bedford. In West Roxbury, Clinton visibly spoke to a poll worker and agreed to take a picture with her, remarking, “As long as we’re not violating any election laws.” McNiffsaid of the New Bedford appearance that “No one was prevented from voting. The city and voters were notified well in advance of the event.

He admitted that Galvin’s office notified Clinton’s campaign of possible violations. “We have heard about it, and the clerks have been instructed and the campaign has been instructed that 150 feet is the rule.”

Clinton supporter and mayor of Boston, Marty Walsh, declined to acknowledge any illegal activity. Rather, he shook poll workers’ hands with the the former president in West Roxbury. “President Clinton joined Mayor Walsh to thank poll workers in West Roxbury this morning,” a spokesperson for his office said, adding that Clinton did not campaign inside the polling place.

The Massachusetts’ state brass is defending the Clintons in spite of unethical and possibly illegal behavior, and the petition disputes the apparent free pass.

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,” it says.

The statement continues:

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.

A spokesman for Clinton directed inquiring CNBC reporters to the WCVB article, where McNiff asserted Bill had committed no wrongdoing. Even if Clinton did not technically violate election laws, it seems apparent his presence at polling centers was intended to promote Hillary’s campaign.

Bernie Sanders supporters and others have raised concerns throughout the campaign cycle regarding the integrity of the process, and the Clintons’ most recent apparent transgression has attracted a great deal of scrutiny. As of Wednesday afternoon, the Change petition calling for Clinton’s arrest and prosecution had attracted over 63,000 signatures, closing in its goal of 75,000.

Though the Clintons have recently been accused of even more serious criminal conduct — including rape and war crimes — they have not faced prosecution.

    interest to pour into the political process
    to fund campaigns by SuperPACs.
    aka "the legal bribing system")

    WELFARE REFORM ACT…………SUPPORTED IT
    (hillary advocated for big cuts to the
    federal aid for needy families & the
    homeless to reduce gov spending.
    bigger military spending was more
    important then citizens)

    DOMA ………………………………….VOTED FOR IT
    (Defense Of Marriage Act, prevented
    equal rights for alternative marriage)

    PRISON PROFITEERING ……………….SUPPORTS IT
    (hillary advocated hard lobbying
    up many votes on capital hill for the
    "Crime Control & Law Enf. Act of '94"
    amping up Reagan's 'War On Drugs'
    by calling blk teens super predators
    needing to be brought to heel. many
    blk/hisp hoods turned into police states
    by random stops & searches in these
    hoods sparking the mass incarceration
    we see today. till this day hillary's against
    lighter sentencing for non-violent offenders
    like marijuana users, hillary's Prison Donors
    need people in prison (meat for the grinder)

    FRACKING / OFF-SHORE OILING ……VOTED FOR IT
    (along w/ relaxed provisions and
    regulations so oil companies can
    save $ by drilling on the cheep,
    resulting in the gulf of mexico
    oil spill of 2010… fracking has
    resulted in earthquakes, damaging
    property & suspected in derailment of
    trains because changing ground levels
    due to fracking)

    KEYSTONE PIPELINE…………………….SUPPORTED IT
    (will result in emanate domain,
    taking lands from citizens so Oil
    Companies can profit, hillary flip
    flopped on this issue recently for
    political convenience)

    BREAKING UP BIG BANKS ……………….AGAINST IT
    (to avoid another "too big to fail"
    fallout scenario like in '08 Crash.
    millions of lost jobs, lost homes,
    401K's, Billions lost in tax-payer $.
    hillary says trust 'Dodd Frank Act'
    to police Big Banks into doing the
    right thing on Wall St….basically
    saying if they crash it again there'll
    be penalties……..REALLY?NO!)

    TPP FREE-TRADE…………………………..VOTED FOR IT
    (lost U.S jobs / companies
    profited on cheep labor by
    out sourcing american jobs)

    UNIONS…………………………………….. AGAINST IT

    directors, hillary didn't support
    her employees efforts to unionize
    to fight for livable wages & equal
    wages for women co-workers)

    BANKRUPTCY REFORM ACT…………..VOTED FOR IT
    (made it harder to fix & get good
    credit, big banks & credit card
    companies rake in record profits
    by keeping customers in the 'Red'
    longer to pay high penalty fees
    & high interest rates)

    GLASS STEAGALL ACT…………..DIDN'T SUPPORT IT
    (regulation passed by FDR to
    prevent another great depression,
    deregulated by the Clintons in '99.
    would have prevented the '08 Wall
    St.Crash.. today hillary defends big
    banks by claiming there's no need
    for glass steagall because 'Dodd
    Frank Act' will police the big banks
    into doing the right thing…"Trust the
    Banks Again!?" ..don't think so)

    IRAQ WAR AUTHORIZATION…………..VOTED FOR IT
    (cost the tax payers 1.7trillion,
    destabilized the middle east,
    leading to ISIS today.. 700,000
    esti. arabs dead, 4500 alley u.s.
    soldiers dead, countless more
    dismembered or suffering from
    postpartum war symptoms,
    Corporations like halliburton

    (the taking over of gov. funded
    Genetically Modified Organism
    companies in the farming sector
    pushing out family farmers,
    the non labeling of GMO's
    in packaged foods in stores)

    1960 CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT…………..AGAINST IT

    worked for the Barry Goldwater
    campaign which was anti-new deal,
    anti-welfare, anti-unions,anti-gay rights,
    anti-abortion, pro mass deportation..
    Goldwater voted against
    The Civil Rights Act of '64)

    ^google it/ yahoo it/ wikipedia it/ youtube it…

  4. Even if he didn't break laws by not handing out materials pertaining to the campaign, in some locations the amount of security needed to ensure his safety meant people had to wait for 2 hours to vote. Who the hell has 2 extra hours, in the middle of the work week, to stand around waiting to vote?! If 1, ONE, person had to leave their polling location without being able to vote then Clinton interfered with a voters ability to vote, which is illegal.

  7. Very well said! I keep thinking that if Trump ends up president, it is because things need to get much worse to wake people up! Hillary will do just as you said "keep it as it is". If Sanders doesn't have this, I will vote 3rd party. If Trump becomes president, so be it. Either way, Clinton will not be getting my vote.

  15. Abbie Evan Hartley – "Who the hell has 2 extra hours, in the middle of the work week, to stand around waiting to vote?" Absolutely everybody. federal law mandates every employer provide time to go vote. Do some research – you might learn something, and I promise you, it won't hurt.

  16. Tom Chapman Jr. Federal law actually doesn't mandate it, so in that aspect we are both wrong (it does state that you cannot deny access to voting booths to anybody based on skin color, or language spoken). If you have a link showing otherwise I'd appreciate it. There are only so many ways you can put "Federal regulations on time off for voting" into a google search bar…

    The Law in Massachusetts "No employee of a manufacturing, mechanical or mercantile establishment must work during the first two hours after the polls open if the employee applied for a leave of absence during this period."

    http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/giving-employees-time-off-voting-29808.html

    http://www.mass.gov/ago/doing-business-in-massachusetts/labor-laws-and-public-construction/wage-and-hour/vacation.html

    Up to two hours is required by Massachusetts law, but only for those in manufacturing, mechanical or mercantile businesses. Considering the fact some voters were required to stand outside of a polling location (after polls opened), *after* the polls opened, for at least two hours waiting for the area to be "secured", I would say it's highly likely at least one individual who worked in those businesses was not granted the ability to vote, thus breaking the state laws at the very least.

    Now if there ARE federal laws requiring a set amount of time for voters to go vote I'd love to know about it.

  17. whose is paying for all this research on the clintons. he was the only president that did not have a deficite, he disarmed iraq without using one ground troop. america was strong militarially and in the black as far as debt he was great for all americans. why are americans trying to nit pick now and destroy him when trump is destroy american standards separating the people. frump will distroy america as we dream it to be one people under GOD with liberty and justice for all,call up to get your computer fix and the company hires people from phillipeans,or india to service your call/spanish is the second language in america,dominicans are buying up business thoeands come thru puerto rico bringing their whole families there is no need to be a citizen or to speak english.so there is no worry that the will be come americans i went to vote and they had a person on the poles that could only speak spanish for the spanish speaking voters how can you vote and not speak english ,how do you get on welfare and dont speak english.because donald trump and the rich check i went to a clinic in a neighborhood that was projects all the employees were light skinned spanish i asked the owner how could this be legal in a black hood to only have light skined spanish women working latter i went to a pharmacy and the samethingall the employees were light skined spanish speaking people then i went to get a colounostcopy samething all the nurses and the people up front were light skinned. i asked my doctor why were there no darkskinned americans anywhere but the patients he said there has to be spanish speaking people for the spanish speaking patients, i asked are there italian speaking or jewish to all you black people haters you going to look up and all the factories nurses jobs will be held by people from south america, everyone from south america got african blood but the catholic church calls them spanish so they wont side with the blacks in america. spain was a black country till 1491 when the catho;ic church kicked out the blackamoores, and the jews from spain.then along qwith the blackamoores that change there names and religion the spanish just wiped out the indians in america and wiped out the advanced civilization the the idians biult then brought the catholic religion and priest and brainwash the people that completely defeated and brainwash them to believe in an evil cast system that said if you look white you were pure if you were darker you were mulloto and down to apure indian or negro were on the buttom like brazial most are dark skinned and they treated terrible. just like mexico the second president off mexico was an african poncheo via was ablack man and today mexico has millions of black mexicans in vera cruz and guerrero who are denied there human rights and america never talks about them america rich like trump knows that you can bring these people into america pay them little or nothing and they wont complain america is being destroyed and all you white people and americans are looking for isis
