(PresidentialInsider.com)- A video published on vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris’s Twitter account on Saturday appears to show the far-left senator possibly breaking campaign laws. In the video, Harris can be seen with a megaphone shouting at voters lined up outside of a polling place in Cuyahoga County.
As voters were waiting to cast early ballots, Harris turned up to do some campaigning.
Using her microphone, she thanked votes for voting and voting early.
“Your vote is your voice, your voice is your vote. There is so much at stake,” she said.
Can someone pass me a bucket?
“Don’t let anyone ever take your power. The power of your voice is so important. You are going to make a difference,” she added.
And, her comments went beyond thanking people for voting and indirectly referenced her campaign.
“You are going to make the decision about your future, about your family’s future,” she said, implying the election is a choice between her vision to help families and Trump’s vision…not to help families?
“It is through the voice of your vote, and you have the power. The power is with the people, and you know that. That’s why you’re standing in this line today, and I just came to say thank you,” she said.
We the people have the power at the ballot box. Thanks for a great day Ohio! pic.twitter.com/wWsSwTuD8n

It is a possible violation of campaign laws – and many people noticed it.
According to OH Rev Code § 3501.35, dring an election and the counting of election ballots, no person shall “loiter, congregate, or engage in any kind of election campaigning within the area between the polling place and the small flags of the United States placed on the thoroughfares and walkways leading to the polling place, and if the line of electors waiting to vote extends beyond those small flags, within ten feet of any elector in that line.”
The video certainly makes it clear that Harris is more than 10 feet away, so while she technically avoids being within the boundaries of the law, her use of a megaphone to bypass that requirement means she violated the intent of the law.
Do you think action should be taken for this kind of behavior?
