A voter ID lawsuit in the state of New Hampshire is being handled, in part, by a former campaign lawyer for failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Marc Elias, a partner in a Washington D.C.-based firm, is behind the lawsuit, fighting the state’s voter identification laws.
The law requires voters to provide a valid driver’s license to prove that their primary residence is in the state of New Hampshire, and that they plan to live in the state for an extended period of time.
According to The Washington Free Beacon, previous efforts aimed at removing the state’s voter ID laws propped by millions of dollars from the liberal billionaire, George Soros.
Soros, who has been accused of willfully and persistently attempting to destabilize the United States, “has a personal goal of enlarging the electorate by 10 million people by 2018, as documents leaked last year show,” the Free Beacon reports.
The latest lawsuit, brought on by the League of Woman Voters and three individuals, is supported by Priorities USA, the “largest liberal super political action committee that backed Clinton’s campaign,” according to the Free Beacon, and they received $9.5 million from the overly liberal Soros during the 2016 election cycle.
Elias, a partner at Perkins Coie, was Clinton’s former top campaign lawyer. Listed as an attorney on the New Hampshire lawsuit, Elias was also behind voter challenges in Virginia, Ohio, Wisconsin, and North Carolina.
In the Ohio lawsuit, Elias was representing the liberal activist group, Ohio Organizing Collaborative. Reportedly, they were later replaced in the suit and investigated. Eventually, a canvasser for the group admitted to fraudulent voter registration activities and was sentenced to six months in prison for falsifying voter registrations, which included registering dead people to vote.
Elias is reportedly also on the board of Priorities, having joined as they absorbed a nonprofit created by Clinton allies, Every Vote Counts. That organization was meant to mobilize African American and Latino voters. “The group is in the process of building a ‘one-stop inventory’ on voting measures that will be shared with other liberal groups,” the Free Beacon reports.
From the Free Beacon:
Elias’s efforts were backed by millions of dollars from Soros. “We hope to see these unfair laws, which often disproportionately affect the most vulnerable in our society, repealed,” Soros said in 2015.
Hacked documents released last year show a top priority for the liberal billionaire is to combat “voter suppression” and enlarge the electorate by 10 million voters, the Washington Free Beacon discovered within the trove of files.
“The Open Society Foundations supports efforts to encourage wider participation in U.S. elections, and opposes measures used to try to suppress voter participation,” a spokesperson from Soros’ foundation told the Free Beacon at the time.
A newly-circulating White House petition is requesting that President Trump declare Mr. Soros a terrorist and seize all assets of organizations tied to him. The petition, which required 100,000 signatures by Sep. 19 to elicit a White House response, has exceeded the needed amount, adding 130,000 signatures as of Monday. “I’d be shocked if it doesn’t hit 1 million,” said DML CEO, Dennis Michael Lynch.
