New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner

Five NH Governors Endorse Bill Gardner for Sec. of State – Look at Who is Missing

Who among New Hampshire’s past governors is conspicuously absent from a Union Leader ‘Your Turn’ editorial in today’s paper endorsing Bill Gardner for Secretary of State?

I’m not crazy…my mother had me tested.

But Representative Abrami thinks I am paranoid because I oppose SB 11; however, I may be just crazy enough to believe I own the water on my property.

Remember when New Hampshire Governor John Lynch slithered off in secret to  Tim Gill’s secret Gay-millionaire-democrat-donor confab known as Political OutGiving?  He wasn’t fundraising, so he said, but ended up with around $100,000.00 in contributions from the attendees (He got the rest of his 2010 campaign cash from Unions and his own bank account).  Well …
