NH GOP Rep Commits Voter Fraud, Keeps House Seat
A month ago, there was a story in Fosters about NH State Representative Don Leeman. The pertinent facts:
In December he moved out of the district that elected him. He continued to serve in the legislature. In February he voted in the district that elected him - NOT the district where he lived. In March, the Legislative Administration committee determined that he was no longer qualified to represent his district, since he didn't live there any more.
Leeman gave Speaker Shawn Jasper a note from his new, temp landlord on Tuesday, and today, according to Fosters the committee report saying Leeman wasn't qualified to serve was tabled, and he gets to keep his seat.
Let's review, shall we?
Leeman moved in December.
He went back to the legislature in January, and continued to serve, without telling anyone that he had moved.
Leeman went to the polls on February 9, to participate in the first in the nation primary.
He went to the polls in a district that he did not live in and voted.
He committed election fraud.
He committed voter fraud.
And today, he was allowed to keep his seat in the NH House.
I do not want to hear a single word, EVER, from NH Republicans about voter fraud.
