Hirsh Singh, a contender for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in the July 7 primary, says he has filed a complaint with the U. S. Department of Justice over the NJ Attorney General’s Cease and Desist letter demanding that he stop advising voters to request a duplicate ballot if they did not vote for him. The Cease and Desist letter also demanded that Singh provide the government with a list of voters to whom he sent his ‘hoodwinked letter.’
Singh also complains that the NJ Secretary of State improperly helped one of his opponents in the primary, Rik Mehta, for failing to provide Mehta’s nominating petition signatories to the Singh campaign in a timely manner, thereby preventing him from challenging signatures by registered Democrats.
Asked by MMM to provide a copy of the complaint, Singh provided the following memo on campaign letterhead:Singh-For-Senate_DOJ-Main-Complaint
Earlier this week Singh said he was not sure the NJ Attorney General’s letter was real and not a political dirty trick orchestrated by his political opponents. The NJ Office of the Attorney General confirmed the authenticity of the letter after being contacted by MMM.
MMM has twice advised Singh to hire an attorney.
