NH House Republican Leader Statement on Rep. Hansen Email Comments

CONCORD – Today House Republican Leader Gene Chandler (R-Bartlett) gave the following statement in reaction to comments made by Rep. Peter Hansen (R-Amherst) in an email exchange earlier in the month:

“These comments are repugnant and unbecoming of an elected official. They have no place in public discourse. Rep. Hansen’s comments in no way reflect the opinions of House Republicans or the Republican Party. Rep. Hansen should apologize immediately. We need to focus on finding real solutions to solve New Hampshire’s problems rather than engaging in unproductive and unprofessional discussions via email.”
