Sen. Shaheen's daughter: I know the NH voting rules
The younger Shaheen received national attention earlier this week when reports about her lingerie business, "Naked Undies," surfaced on BuzzFeed.com and other web sites, as well as in the New York Daily News.
The web site says that after "working tirelessly on the campaign trail" on her mother's behalf, "Eventually, Molly planted her roots in Los Angeles, working for top talent agencies."
Molly Shaheen's Facebook page also says she: "Lives in Los Angeles, California."
But Madbury voting records show, and Molly Shaheen said in an interview, that she voted in Madbury last year in the January presidential primary, the September party primary and the November general election.
The statute defines "domicile for voting purposes" as "that one place where a person, more than any other place, has established a physical presence and manifests an intent to maintain a single continuous presence for domestic, social and civil purposes relevant to participating in democratic self-government."
She said she "got an apartment in Los Angeles a few months ago. I was living at my parents' house when I voted in the last election. And I was in school in San Diego before that.
Shripal Shah, a spokesman in Sen. Shaheen's office, had no comment on this report, while attorney Bill Shaheen, Molly Shaheen's father, who registered the business in New Hampshire in 2011 as a limited liability corporation, did not return calls seeking comment.
Bill Shaheen told BuzzFeed.com, "I didn't pick the name. That's her name. But I encouraged her to start her own business because she's a very talented girl."
