Did Chelsea Clinton Break the Law?
ABC News has the headline “Did Chelsea Clinton Break the Law?”
What was her pernicious deed?
Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton’s Election Day visit to New Haven poll workers Tuesday prompted state election officials to caution that politicking within 75 feet of polling sites is against state law.
Two television station reporters told state officials Tuesday morning that Clinton brought poll workers coffee and talked with a firefighter at a New Haven precinct when polls opened at 6 a.m., said Adam Joseph, a spokesman for the secretary of the state’s office.
WTNH-TV reported that Chelsea Clinton immediately went outside after election moderator Nilda Torres announced that the polls were open.
Mmm hmm. So, did she break the law?
“I did not consider it an issue because she didn’t come here, as far as I’m concerned, to influence anything here or disrupt us,” Torres said. “She was here, I opened the polls and then she left.”
No formal complaint about the incident was filed, but Deputy Secretary of the State Lesley Mara e-mailed New Haven registrars to remind them of the 75-foot rule, Joseph said.
So that would be no?
