After James O’Keefe’s latest video, released yesterday, featured individuals committing voter fraud during Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary, two prominent Granite State officials are calling for their arrest and prosecution. Ted Gatsas, the Republican Mayor of Manchester, told the New Hampshire Union Leader, “They should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.” Similarly, Nashua City Clerk Paul Bergeron told ThinkProgress by phone that what these individuals did “is a crime, regardless of what the intent might be. What they did was wrong.” Bergeron said he hopes the case gets prosecuted because it “appears to be a violation of the state’s wiretapping code for one thing, which is a Class B felony in New Hampshire, in addition to a possible violation election fraud.”
