Almost 100,000 people have signed a petition that calls on Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey to arrest and prosecute President Bill Clinton for allegedly committing a “3rd degree Voter Violation Felony” on election day.
Various accounts allege that Bill Clinton impeded people’s access to the polls and forced longer lines and unnecessary waiting times. The worst violations appear to have happened in New Bedford, an area where the RI contingent of the Sanders campaign had many volunteers canvassing.
Nearly 90,000 people have signed a petition calling for former President Bill Clinton's arrest for visiting a Massachusetts polling place on Super Tuesday.
A 12 second video filmed Tuesday shows the former president greeting poll workers in the gymnasium, of the Holy Name school in West Roxbury, Mass. Tuesday, accompanied by Boston Mayor Marty Walsh.

The mayor's office maintains that the two were not there to solicit any votes, but rather to thank poll workers for their help, according to reporting from the Boston Globe. But the secretary of the commonwealth's office didn't quite buy it.
"He’s a well known person. And he’s a spouse of a candidate," the secretary of the commonwealth's spokesperson Brian McNiff told the Globe. "That should answer the question [of whether Bill was soliciting]."

“He had the right to go into the polling locations, and say ‘Hello’ to workers who were there. The issue is, you can’t go inside and say, ‘Vote for my wife,’ or ‘Vote for Hillary,’” Galvin said in a telephone interview Wednesday.
Galvin said that in New Bedford, the former president did speak in front of the polling location, but Galvin didn’t know how close he was.
Galvin said that his office was “annoyed” that Clinton addressed hundreds of people during an “ad hoc” rally near a polling place, after his wife’s campaign had already been contacted several times.
