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?
There is much to be concerned with about the prospect of a Hillary Clinton presidency.
This incident is not one of them.
ahh, yeah, it would be a no.
Sure she broke the law. Here you had someone who’s hit the campaign trail for a major candidate bringing gifts to polling place workers on election day. It was an obvious and flagrant criminal act. Only a liberal would rationalize it as innocent and only because it was perpetrated by a fellow liberal.
“brought poll workers coffee”
Ah fer chrissakes lighten up. You’re gonna give yourself an aneurysm.
Ah, the joys of a clinton presidency. Nothing like watching thousands of rabid rightwing conspirators savage a young woman.
Hey at least this time they aren’t going to be picking on a twleve year old.
Cause you know that might show a little lack of character…
Only a “fellow liberal” would defend the Chelsea Clinton donut scandal, William d’Inger? Well, I guess you might be right – I certainly don’t see it as an issue. Maybe we could get Ken Starr to come out of retirement and investigate.
Until then though I await expectantly your definitive pronouncement of “he broke the law” in response to any of the numerous and far more substantial allegations of lawbreaking made against Bush and his administration.
I’m sure this omission is just an oversight on your part.
