Did Bill Clinton Violate Election Law In The Massachusetts Primary?

posted on March 5, 2016

It appears Bill Clinton blatantly violated election laws during the hotly contested Massachusetts primary on Super Tuesday.

In a video posted on DailyKos.com and others, the former president can be clearly seen, accompanied by Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, inside a polling venue in West Roxbury, Mass. Another video recorded at a polling station in New Bedford showed how the size of Clinton’s entourage reportedly blocked access to voters for two hours.

Massachusetts law prohibits any campaigning within 150 feet of a polling station, or in any way interfering with the right to vote. When Brian McNiff, a spokesperson for Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin, was asked if Clinton’s appearance would constitute a solicitation, he replied, “He’s a well-known person, and he’s a spouse of the candidate. That should answer the question.” 

Clinton visited as many as four polling venues on primary day. Boston.com reported that the campaign had been “reminded” not to solicit votes near polling sites.
