Governor Lynch called Democrat Party Chair Kathy Sullivan???
Kind of gives you a glimpse into his thought process doesn't it?
A State Representative gives you a letter saying he had seen, as the 16-year landlord for a person YOU BOTH KNOW, child pornography regarding single digit-aged children. And that he knew of this same material being brought into the country by this same person from overseas where much of this illegal material originates.
Would you think it was a crime worth reporting - if you were the Governor who campaigns on child protection?
It has been reported that Governor Lynch turned the letter detailing kiddie porn to the NH Attorney General - and Kathy Sullivan the alleged possessor of the material's close friend.
How come the NH media isn't asking tough questions of anyone but Steve Vaillancourt?
649-A:1 Declaration of Findings and Purposes. –
I. The legislature finds that there has been a proliferation of exploitation of children through their use as subjects in sexual performances. The care of children is a sacred trust and should not be abused by those who seek to profit through a commercial network based upon the exploitation of children. The public policy of the state demands the protection of children from exploitation through sexual performances.
II. It is the purpose of this chapter to facilitate the prosecution of those who exploit children in the manner specified in paragraph I. In accordance with the United States Supreme Court's decision in New York v. Ferber, this chapter makes the dissemination of visual representations of children under the age of 16 engaged in sexual activity illegal irrespective of whether the visual representations are legally obscene; and the legislature urges law enforcement officers to aggressively seek out and prosecute those who violate the provisions of this chapter.
