This was inevitable: An early complaint of voter suppression in California’s special House election. Janice Hahn’s campaign has filed a complaint with the state Attorney General to investigate “several reports” of calls to voters that Tuesday’s election had been moved to Wednesday.
According to Hahn’s attorney, other voters received calls including “incorrect polling information.”
One voter received a call Monday morning saying, “Called to let you know that the election has been moved to Wednesday, per Janice Hahn’s request. Thanks, bye.”
Election day complaints are fairly routine, but are often dropped if the candidate goes on to win.
Hahn’s campaign is, predictably, blaming Craig Huey supporters for the calls. But they don’t have any evidence other than calls to their office from voters relaying details about the calls.
