A cease-and-desist letter was just delivered to the Democrat National Committee by New Hampshire Republican Attorney General John Formella.
Regarding the presidential primary in the state, Formella claimed that the DNC had made misleading, inaccurate, and fraudulent statements. The attorney general’s order cited a letter from the DNC’s Rules and Bylaws Committee that was addressed to Ray Buckley, chair of the New Hampshire Democrat Party, urging Democrats to inform the public that the election in the state is irrelevant.
Reports show co-chairs of the DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee, Minyon Moore and James Roosevelt Jr., wrote in a letter that the New Hampshire Democrat Party (NHDP) should do all in its power to ensure that neither its members nor any presidential candidates participate in the January 23rd event, which is a non-binding presidential choice event and thus meaningless.
With President Biden’s assistance, the DNC approved an earlier presidential primary schedule for 2024 last year. DNC’s revised schedule aimed to have the 3rd of February as the first state to hold elections. With its primary date set for January 23, New Hampshire defied the adjustments and refused to comply.
According to the cease-and-desist order, the remarks made by the DNC violated the state’s statutes prohibiting the suppression of votes. According to the AG’s office, the DNC’s remarks were an effort to discourage or stop people from voting.
The letter closed by stating that the issue is ongoing and that the Office is authorized to pursue further enforcement measures regarding the activities outlined in the letter and any other violations of State election laws.
In Ray Buckley’s response to the ruling, he claimed the DNC was less popular than the NY Yankees in New Hampshire, but the New Hampshire Secretary of State is bound by law to hold the nation’s first nationwide primary, and he will not budge from his position on this matter. According to Buckley, nothing changed, and the Democrat Party is hoping for a record-breaking turnout of voters on January 23.
