Concord, NH- Last Friday's Union Leader article paints a picture of a Carol Shea-Porter who continues to run and hide from her record in Congress. Not only did she fail to put any of her issues on her website for months until Granite Staters pressured her, but she is now trying to censor what interviews are shown on the air. In an interview last week by Bedford community access, Shea-Porter called foul on the nature of the questions, and didn't want the producer to air it. What is the Congresswoman trying to hide?
All voters really need to know about Congresswoman Shea-Porter is that she rubber-stamped then Speaker Pelosi's tax-and-spend agenda. While in Congress, Shea-Porter voted with the Democrat leadership "100 percent of the time... because frankly I think they are 100 percent right."
"Carol Shea-Porter knows that she can't be reelected based on her record," said New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Wayne MacDonald. "However, the voters have a right to know where she stands on the issues. Asking a reporter not to air something, because the questions weren't in her control, is completely ridiculous. Shea-Porter owes the voters of New Hampshire an explanation on why she is continuing to hide from them."
Union Leader: Community access reporter sparring with Shea-Porter
“In an April 2007 interview with the Concord Monitor, Shea-Porter explained her views: ‘And so far I have voted, I think, 100 percent of the time with [Democratic leaders] because frankly I think they’re 100 percent right,’ she said.” (Alex Isenstadt, “Is Third Time The N.H.
