The New Hampshire Republicans have announced that "Last week, the New Hampshire Republican Party filed as an intervener in the case initially pursued by the Libertarian Party, represented by the American Civil Liberties Union, challenging access to the list. New Hampshire Republicans argue that the state Democratic Party is profiting from the sale of a list based on a law that has since been declared unconstitutional."
In a press release, the Republicans allege "A review of public records reveals that: 1) The Democratic Party purchased the statewide voter file for $450 and then resold it multiple times to Democratic presidential campaigns; 2) They were negotiating to re-sell the list even while legislation allowing them to purchase it was being steered through the Democrat-controlled legislature; 3) The Democratic Party also sold the list to commercial list brokers, which may be a violation of state law."
In bold letters, in the middle of the e-mail, it states "WHILE DEMOCRATS SHEPHERDED THE BILL THROUGH THE DEMOCRAT-CONTROLLED LEGISLATURE, THE NH DEMOCRATIC PARTY WAS ALREADY NEGOTIATING TO RESELL THE LIST TO PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGNS."
This From New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley: “Another day, another phony press release from Fergus Cullen. This is clearly a sign of desperation from the NH GOP. Our voter file is much more comprehensive than the Secretary of State’s list. We have spent years building and amending it and would have sold it, as we have for the last 20 years, no matter the outcome of this law. I can state with 100% certainty that our decisions and actions have been consistently above the law. This is a baseless allegation and NH voters deserve an apology. I know Fergus is new to the political scene but any professional in the industry knows that this practice is common around the country on both sides of the isle.”
