AG: No Voter Fraud By Workers Who Stayed With Sen. Clark Clark Case

The N. H. Attorney General's office has dismissed GOP allegations of fraud against campaign staffers who voted from the address of State Senator Martha Fuller Clark.

The Attorney General’s office interviewed Senator Fuller Clark and 4 democratic campaign workers who stayed at her house during the run ups to the 2008 and 2012 elections.

Those interviews, says Assistant Attorney General Stephen LaBonte, yielded a consistent story: the campaign workers and Senator Fuller Clark never spoke of where they were registered to vote or if they would vote in NH using her address as their domicile.

“Based on those facts, and the fact that they didn’t vote anywhere else, that they came to NH to work on the campaigns, and that they stayed here for several months, we had a finding of no voter fraud.”  

The Attorney General’s report also notes that one of the campaign workers, Ryan Flynn, said the N.H. Democratic party instructed campaign workers to register to vote in the towns in which they are were living.

In the wake of the GOP complaint, all the campaign workers who stayed at Fuller Clark’s house have asked the Portsmouth clerk to remove their names from the city’s voter checklist.
