You know you’ve angered the gods when a petition goes up at Change.org, garnering more than 88,000 signatures, all demanding your head.

Enter the continuing drama of ex-president and current campaign flack Bill Clinton, who was slammed earlier this week for having violated Massachusetts election laws by campaigning within 150 feet of a polling location.

The petition, which is addressed to Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey, a Democrat, calls for the “immediate arrest of President Bill Clinton for clear, knowing, and egregious violation of the campaign laws to swing an election in a significant way.”

The Washington Free Beacon’s Morgan Chalfant notes that the petition was created in reaction to the posting of video showing Bubba shaking hands with election clerks inside a Bay State polling station on Super Tuesday.

“Critics,” writes Chalfont, “have argued that the video is evidence of Clinton campaigning for his wife, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, inside a polling location, which is forbidden.

“Clinton was also seen holding a rally close to the entrance of a polling site, thanking people for voting for his wife.”

This is not the first instance in this election cycle where the charge of electioneering has been leveled. Late last month, poll workers in Nevada were accused of violating state election laws for similar offenses. However, none of those individuals carried the prestige of being married (sort of) to Democratic front-runner for president. Speaking of whom, there are enough accusations of misconduct swirling around the Clinton name without Bill having to add his two cents.
