Carl Gibson, Back In NH Courtroom

A not so cocky Carl Robert Gibson was in Merrimack Superior court Friday at 9 am for a trial conference of some sort. I know because I was sitting right behind him. This time he had nothing to say or chant to me.

His final pre-trail conference will be April 22, 2016 before jury selection in June. Gee, Carl is planning ahead these days. Oh, wait, his plans are being planned for him.

If you don’t know about Carl Robert Gibson, who is awaiting trial in NH for voter suppression this may be your first visit to NHInsider.com.

Carl Robert Gibson is a professional protester, the kind that sneaks into NH to perform self-aggrandizing stunts for their candidate or issue of choice. Carl decided it would be funny to impersonate a candidate for a NH House special election which led to his most recent arrest.

Arrests are something Carl also thinks are funny because he never serves time. This time might be different. Instead of some Wisconsin, Texas, North Carolina, Illinois, or NY judge slapping him on the wrist he will face a NH jury of citizens from whom he stole several votes in NH General Elections. In 2012 and 2014 this Kentucky resident voted in New Hampshire. He was voting in Wisconsin in 2013 from his home there while driving back and forth in his Ct. registered car with his 2013 freshly renewed Kentucky drivers license.

So far he has only been charged with voter suppression. But NH should also add false swearing to a NH election official for stating on his same day 2012  registration that he was a NH resident with a legal domicile. Not true.

While we are on the “loophole” of domicile Carl would like to exploit, how about a visit to good old  NH RSA 21:6.

21:6 Resident; Inhabitant. – A resident or inhabitant or both of this state and of any city, town or other political subdivision of this state shall be a person who is domiciled or has a place of abode or both in this state and in any city, town or other political subdivision of this state, and who has, through all of his actions, demonstrated a current intent to designate that place of abode as his principal place of physical presence for the indefinite future to the exclusion of all others.

Kentucky law regarding residency/domicile, Chapter 18:

(12) "Resident" means any person who has established Kentucky as his or her state of domicile. Proof of residency shall include but not be limited to a deed or property tax bill, utility agreement or utility bill, or rental housing agreement. The possession by an operator of a vehicle of a valid Kentucky operator's license shall be primafacie evidence that the operator is a resident of Kentucky.

Our boy Carl has been a registered voter in Kentucky since 2006 and held a Kentucky driver’s license since before that. In Kentucky you can get a person’s operator history right over the internet for $5.50 – which I have done in his case.

As it sands, Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street, Moral Mondays in several states, and probably some Trump campaign stops will be missing one of their favorite idiots. He is stuck in NH for a year as his court case gets under way.
