As if Hillary Clinton needed any more problems, the former Secretary of State’s struggling campaign is now under investigation by the Nevada Secretary of State after the latest video from conservative activist James O’Keefe caught a top Clinton campaign leader on tape possibly violating election rules.
According to Breitbart:
Nevada attorney Christina Gupana, who is managing voter-registration efforts for the Clinton campaign in the key state of Nevada, was the unwitting star of O’Keefe’s undercover sting video this week. Gupana was caught on film apparently conspiring to violate election laws.
Now top state officials are investigating the matter.
“We do have an official complaint referencing the video,” Wayne Thorley, deputy secretary for elections in Nevada’s Secretary of State’s office, told Breitbart News. “The complaint was filed 2:30 local Nevada Time today. We will be investigating the complaint.”
“We can confirm that we are aware of the video and we will look into what’s on the video,” Thorley said.
The tape revealed that Gupana instructed uncertified volunteers to register voters, contrary to Nevada law.
“Do whatever you can. Whatever you can get away with, just do it, until you get kicked out, like totally,” Gupana told who she believed to be Clinton campaign staffers and volunteers in the video, which was released Thursday by O’Keefe’s organization Project Veritas.
Anyone registering voters in Nevada is supposed to be certified by a County Clerk.
The Nevada issue comes on the heels of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders overtaking Hillary in Iowa. The Socialist Senator has opened up a double digit lead on Clinton in New Hampshire and is making gains across the country.
The future doesn’t look much brighter for Clinton: she continues to face questions about her emails, and in October she has to face Congress over Benghazi as well as her fellow Democrats in their first debate.
