Chris Christie: Hillary Clinton Just Wants To Expand Voter Fraud (VIDEO)

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) bashed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s call to expand the number of citizens registered to vote.

“Secretary Clinton doesn’t know the first thing about voting rights in New Jersey or in the other states that she attacked,” Christie said according to in New Hampshire on Friday. “My sense is that she just wants an opportunity to commit greater acts of voter fraud around the country.”

The comments by Christie, who’s strongly hinted at plans to run for president in 2016, came a day after the Democratic presidential candidate bashed Republicans for passing voter ID laws and called for instituting automatic voting registration for every citizen 18 and older.

Other declared and would-be 2016 Republican candidates swiped at Clinton for her remarks. Fresh off of declaring his 2016 White House bid, former Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) defended a voter ID law he signed and Clinton criticized saying that it’s the same as when people present identification to board an airplane.

“When I got on the airline to come here yesterday, I had to show my photo I.D.,” Perry said in an interview with “Fox and Friends” on Friday. He added that Clinton “went into my home state and dissed every person who supports having an identification to either get on an airplane or to vote. It’s highly popular.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.
