Not True: Shea-Porter tells the press she has had "10 public town halls" since 2013


On Monday, in an article in the National Journal, Congresswoman Carol "Shea-Porter['s] spokeswoman Marjorie Connolly dismissed charges that her boss is an absentee congresswoman as untrue and listed 10 public town hall events since Shea-Porter took office in 2013."


The same Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter who once made a career out of being thrown out of George W. Bush's town hall meetings and followed former Congressman Jeb Bradley around to many of his public forums, has been refusing to hold town halls during the 113th Congress. Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire has been calling on the congresswoman to hold public meetings, but she has refused to do so.  


While we have given up hope that she will hold town halls, we will not stand by as her spokeswoman makes false claims. Here in the Granite State, we know Carol has been hiding. In response to this untrue statement by her spokeswoman in the National Journal, Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire is calling on Congresswoman Shea-Porter to release the list of ten public town halls she claims to have had. 


Considering she said they were "public," Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire is also requesting proof that she advertised each of these alleged ten town halls to her constituents to allow for their attendance either via her website, mail, an e-newsletter, or social media, prior to the alleged events. 


According to's coverage of the story, they have reached out to Congresswoman Shea-Porter and are seeking a response regarding this matter, too. It appears she has yet to answer.


Opinion: Would the Shea-Porter of 2006 oppose the Shea-Porter of today?

On Sunday, our spokesman, Derek Dufresne, had an op'ed published in Foster's Daily Democrat raising the interesting question of whether the populist version of Carol Shea-Porter from 2006 would primary the elitist Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter of today.

More Problems: Shaheen's tax lien issues
Towns in New Hampshire and Maine placed 21 different liens against properties owned by Democratic Senate candidate Jeanne Shaheen's husband, who manages the couple's real estate business, according to local property records obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller this week.


People owed money by the Shaheens, therefore, successfully compelled local governments on 21 occasions to issue liens against properties owned by the couple in order to get their money back from insurance companies before the Shaheens could profit further.
