Former Sen. Scott Brown: Voter Fraud In New Hampshire ‘No Secret’

BOSTON (CBS) — After President-elect Donald Trump alleged voter fraud in states including New Hampshire over the weekend, former Senator Scott Brown told Boston Herald Radio New Hampshire voter fraud is “no secret.”

The Boston Herald reports Brown said voter fraud is prevalent in New Hampshire because of the large student population.

“People from Massachusetts could have gone up and voted that day and quite frankly some do,” Brown said on Boston Herald Radio’s “Morning Meeting.” “It’s well known, it’s no secret.”

He said student voter fraud is so common it makes New Hampshire a blue state.

“So if kids are going to vote they need to have a license in New Hampshire,” Brown continued. “They need to pay taxes, they need to do a whole host of things, apply for financial aid and residency, so they can take advantage — or not take advantage — of residency requirements of colleges and universities in New Hampshire. Then we’ll figure out if New Hampshire is really a red or blue state.  I believe it is a red state.”

He told Boston Herald Radio students go to vote unregistered and “claim domicile,” meaning the students have lived there before and intend to continue living there, which allows them to vote.

Hillary Clinton won New Hampshire by more than 2,732 votes.

On Nov. 27, Trump alleged “serious voter fraud” in New Hampshire, Virginia and California in a tweet.

Assistant Attorney General Brian Bounanano, who works in the AG’s election unit, denied Trump’s allegations.

“There’s no evidence of widespread voter fraud,” Bounanano said. “Specifically of people voting in the wrong place.”

    2,372 votes that were fraudulent could well have changed the outcome of that race.

    “It’s well known, it’s no secret.”

    Yup, damning evidence! Right up there with “a little birdie told me …”

    But that aside, this is coming from someone who is in the know about NH voters. Long time resident, ran many political races, … hey wait a minute!

  3. If Scott Brown kw o person committing voter fraud he would have named them. He just want to look good to trump so he can get his job.

  4. ICE officer just interviewed by O”Rielly has deported 1000 people. A HUNDRED had voter ID card – most had driver’s licenses and SS cards. If you think illegals not voting you are BLIND. If 10%, just the number with voter IDs, of the so-called 13 million illegals voted that is 1.3 million. That is a very concervative estimate. Data says “TRUMP WON THE POPULAR VOTE !!!!!” AND “DEMOCRATS ARE CRIMINALS !!!!!”

  5. Thomas Pound says:

    A carpetbagger from Mass is claiming voter fraud in New Hampshire based on rumor (“It’s well known”). Again, no evidence means no proof. Welcome to our New World Disorder.

  6. Henry Crum says:

    There is no evidence there is not widespread voter fraud. There is no evidence there is widespread voter fraud. Neither side really knows. Something really should be done to correct that.

  7. Scott Brown must be looking for a cabinet position. If he knew of this previously why hasn’t he done something about it. Politicians….ugh.

  8. I live in NH and I have to tell you that there is a LOT of fraud here. Mass. people who own 2nd homes up here not only vote here, they actually brag about having 2 votes. When I go to my LOCAL polling place in Manchester, there are an overwhelming amount of Mass cars. It is not hard to figure out why. I have thought they should investigate for years. BTW…law in NH states that if you own a 2nd home in NH, and not a primary home here, you can’t vote here.

  9. The true fraud in New Hampshire’s vote isn’t with the student voter, but in the media bias of the states’s professed conservative newspaper, the Union Leader. Endorsing the “Green Party” candidate this election cycle, Jill Stein, the newspaper printed every fluff piece it could conjure covering Clinton. The Union Leader also joined-in with MSM’s attack on Trump in a daily barrage of yellow journalism. Far from the days when this paper was known for it’s conservative values in the “Live Free or Die” state, the Union Leader is an example of what has gone wrong with the partnership formed between failing (institutional) printed newspaper’s and the commercial support offered by the political elite class. This negative association is far more pronounced in New Hampshire which receives an extreme amount of attention nationally as an early primary celebrate. To the credit of New Hampshire an educated state, the Union Leader is no loner the voice of the people who ralize the paper’s claim to conservatism is simply an advertising ploy.
