NHDP Chair Ray Buckley Calls on Rep. Al Baldasaro to Resign After Saying NH is “Selling Children to Homosexuals for $10,000 each”

Concord -  Ray Buckley, Chair of the New Hampshire Democratic Party, released the following statement after Republican state Representative Al Baldasaro  (R-Londonderry), while testifying before the NH House Judiciary Committee last Wednesday, stated that "The state of New Hampshire is selling children to homosexuals for $10,000 each."

"Rep. Baldasaro's remarks have no place in New Hampshire and certainly not from a state elected official.  He needs to immediately apologize for his outrageous statement.  And his Londonderry colleague House Minority Leader Rep. Sherman Packard, as well as Deputy Minority Leader Rep. David Hess of Hooksett and Republican 16th District Senate candidate Rep. David Boutin of Hooksett should denounce these ridiculously hateful remarks and demand his resignation."

"The Granite State is a place where people of different backgrounds are accepted, not discriminated against based on their, race, gender, or sexual orientation.  To make such an ignorant comment is an embarrassment to his party, his office, and to our state. Republican legislative leaders should take swift and determined action against Rep. Baldasaro."
