Democracy for New Hampshire Statement on Internet Attack on Ray Buckley

Earlier today Democracy for New Hampshire became aware of a vicious attack on Ray Buckley, a candidate for NHDP Chair, that is available on the Internet. A short time ago we removed a post from our Web site forum that called attention to it. We regret that anyone might have learned about this deplorable attack from our site.

We at DFNH firmly believe that unsubstantiated rumor and innuendo have no place in our public dialog. We have made every effort to make our Web site a place where people with differing ideas can have their concerns considered by thoughtful, active people from across New Hampshire's politcal spectrum. And, while we sometimes err on the side of inclusion, we make every effort to assure that our home on the Internet isn't used as a vehicle for cheap and underhanded attack politics. We believe the people of New Hampshire share our commitment to clean, clear, and honest politics — whether in the case of transparent elections or fair debate on the Web.
