Democrat Rep. Katherine Rogers Pleads Guilty To Assault Charge

by Steve MacDonald

Rep.-Katherine-Rogers-600x337The 2017 ‘Humane Legislator of the Year’ entered a guilty plea to avoid jail time for assaulting Conservative activist Susan Olsen.

CONCORD, NH — A local Democrat and state representative pleaded guilty this morning to assaulting a political opponent during a state Senate ballot recount in November 2016. State Rep. Katherine Rogers, D-Concord, 61, pleaded guilty to the assault charge as part of a plea deal that would help her avoid jail time as well as a fine so long as she stays out of trouble during the next year and attends anger management classes during the next 90-days.

At least one (former) NH House Rep. has called for her to step down.

She has violated the public trust and broken the law. In today’s Concord Monitor, it was reported Katherine Rogers has been charged with assault. It stems from an incident that took place last November. Ten months ago. Why she is still in office is entirely unacceptable. If she does not make the decision to step down the Democratic Party should require her to do so. For allowing her to stay means the Democratic Party will look the other way if violence is perpetrated by one of their members. 

In this case, State Democrat leadership didn’t look the other way. They showed up to support it.

A contingent of elected Democrats and other activists were in attendance to support Rogers including Ray Buckley, the chairman of the New Hampshire Democratic Party, Minority Leader Steve Shurtleff, D-Concord, Kris Schultz, D-ConcordKen Roos, a labor activist, state Rep. Tim Horrigan, D-Durham, and others.

    I’m a firm believer in due process, unlike Democrats. Now that due process has taken place and Rogers ADMITTED to assaulting a citizen, she needs to RESIGN, immediately.

      Well to paraphrase Whoopi:
      “It wasn’t assault assault because the other party is a Conservative”.

      Waiting for due process to play out is always good; it eliminates doubts.
      As for resigning: that’s up to her party and their rules or any rules that the state legislature may have for the situation.

      I say that as someone who is opposed to everything the Democrat party stands for.

        She completely violated the NH House Code of Ethics

          I figured as much; so now it’s up to the NH House to mete appropriate punishment.

  • mrwonderful

    WOW! Didn’t see that coming! She must’ve done something – otherwise she’d have pled “not guilty” and fought it in court. She should step down immediately. There’s got to be a better person to represent Merrimack district 28. This is quite the little Xmas gift for Ms. Olsen.

    • Kathleen LaBonte

      YES, quite the Xmas gift for Ms. Olsen!! President Trump said we (conservatives) are going to win so much we will be tired of winning! LOL – not tired yet. Can’t wait to see what next pimple on the a__s of progress will be removed.

        Really – debt still rocketing and imports still outgrowing exports. Still stuffed!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • Kathleen LaBonte

          You do love following me around to comment on my posts, and say such dumb things. I’m starting to feel stalked.

          First you bring manufacturing back.
          Then you export things other than agricultural products.
          Mexico is about to lose a US car plant – to…us.
          Simple formula.
          If a pie keeps growing there is eventually more than you can eat. Maybe we can stop spending and let the increased revenue catch up with our debt.

          • mrpoohead

            Here’s the thing; manufacturing left because their production costs are a twentieth of what they are here.
            Spending already slashed. Bankrupt and we can only blame ourselves – the super has left the power. Going down!

          • Ed Naile

            And manufacturing will come back because manufacturing things overseas is more than just lower costs.
            Our country does not nationalize business, our money is worth something, and you don’t have to pay open bribes to officials.
            Add that to reduced regulations and you have a recipe for economic prosperity.
            Take off your “I hate Trump goggles.”

          • mrpoohead

            Lower costs win – whose been nationalized?
            What reduced regulations? To export business will have to abide by importers rules – duh!
            President has no power, I have no hate – he’s merely a buffoon and embarrassment. Funny as though.

            Seriously, are you taking some sort of beginner English language course that requires you to comment on blogs for practice?

            Don’t feed the troll, Ed – let him starve from attention deprivation.

          • Ed Naile

            Adios troll!!

          • mrpoohead

            I asked a question and spoke nothing but facts, with a side of opinion. Are you too dumb to answer the question?

            “Lower costs win – whose been nationalized?
            What reduced regulations? To export business will have to abide by importers rules”
            Gibberish spoken by a child.
            What you have inferred wasn’t anything we hadn’t discovered years ago. The problem is you obviously haven’t factored everything out to the logical conclusion since you haven’t lived long enough yet kid.
            My sincere wish is that you live long enough to suffer the results of your ineptitude.
            When the time comes that it dawns on you what I have said, that will be the moment of our revenge.

  • Kathleen LaBonte

    OMG!!! LOL – Humane Legislator of the Year!!!

  • Jim Johnson

    It wasn’t real assault, there was no sexual component!
