If you search “Maggie Hassan” and “25,000” you will discover that the NHGOP has asked the NH AG’s office to determine if a $25,000.00 dollar campaign contribution to the governor from the local IBEW violates New Hampshire Campaign finance laws.

Never let it be said that by default I’m disagreeable with those with whom I disagree.  Sure, if the opponent is a vile, loathsome cretin, I’ll let them know in very colorful piquing terms.  But for the most part I’m not the boorish sort who forgoes civility and jettisons propriety when in the company of […]
