The other day, the NH Attorney General’s Office whitewashed the voter fraud committed by non-resident voters at State Senator Martha Fuller Clark’s flophouse mansion in Portsmouth.
The AG’s whitewash included some new information we knew about already.
Clark let Arkansas Attorney Bryan Gregory Griffith stay and campaign from her single family/historic district mansion – free of rent. This free rent establishes residency/domicile according to the NH AG.
Arkansas Attorney Griffith received seven months free rent in Portsmouth to campaign for Obama with the famous Obama Voter List all Democrats want to get their hands on.
Nothing is free in this world except worn out tires and kittens.
So how does this free rent for Griffith and another Obama guy named Flynn stack up to our campaign laws?

Arkansas has a state income tax. Do you think Arkansas Attorney Bryan Gregory Griffith paid his 2012 taxes to Arkansas with the seven months he was domiciled in NH deducted?????
All he has to do is use his New Hampshire Attorney General’s get out of jail free investigation card to save big on his Arkansas taxes.
That is how intra-state domicile “laws” work, right?
