WMUR Investigation Raises Serious Questions About Senator's Home Address Being Used For Voter Fraud
Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn sent the following letter to New Hampshire Attorney General Joe Foster asking him to formally investigate new allegations of voter fraud involving State Senator Martha Fuller Clark (D-Portsmouth).
Dear Attorney General Foster,
On behalf of the New Hampshire Republican State Committee, I formerly request that you investigate potential incidents of voter fraud that have been uncovered by the New Hampshire media. Reports surfaced last night that indicate State Senator Martha Fuller Clark (D-Portsmouth) is aiding and abetting individuals who are undermining New Hampshire law and allowing her home address to be used as a sanctuary for voter fraud.
WMUR-TV found that eight people are currently registered to vote at Senator Fuller Clark's Portsmouth mansion. Several of these individuals moved to New Hampshire for a short period of time to work on campaigns, and then left the state. When questioned about these voters, Senator Fuller Clark said that she had no idea if they ever had any intention of staying in the State of New Hampshire after the election.
New Hampshire law states that every inhabitant of the state, "having a single established domicile for voting purposes" has a right to vote. "An inhabitant's domicile for voting purposes is that one place where a person, more than any other place, has established a physical presence and manifests an intent to maintain a single continuous presence for domestic, social, and civil purposes relevant to participating in democratic self-government." (RSA 654:1)
Senator Fuller Clark knew that political workers who parachute into New Hampshire for several weeks to work on campaigns did not have the 'intent to maintain' a presence in our state. She knew that New Hampshire was not the location that "more than any other place" these out of state campaign workers had "established a continuous presence for domestic, social and civil purposes." Yet she allowed them to registered to vote at her home address so that they could support her political party and improperly influence New Hampshire elections.
It is outrageous that a senior Democrat lawmaker, who also serves as Vice Chairman of the State Democrat Party, would let people use her home address to potentially break New Hampshire laws and promote voter fraud. Her behavior undermines public confidence in the integrity of our elections and raises very serious questions about the campaign tactics used by New Hampshire Democrats.
In order to preserve the integrity of New Hampshire laws, the Department of Justice needs to immediately investigate the reports of potential voter fraud at Senator Fuller Clark's home and prosecute those who have broken the law.
I also respectfully request that you personally recuse yourself from any part of this investigation given the appearance of a conflict of interest. You previously served in the New Hampshire State Senate as a Democrat with Senator Fuller Clark, and could not impartially investigate her.
Thank you for your attention to this important matter. I look forward to your immediate response.
New Hampshire Republican State Committee
