As Bill O’Brien Moves to Setup Radical Shadow Government, Will Kelly Ayotte and Republican Leaders Continue to Support His Naked Power Grab?
Concord, N.H. – On the heels of the stunning rebuke from both Republicans and Democrats of Bill O’Brien’s divisive partisanship, O’Brien announced that he is setting up a shadow organization that will disregard the will of Granite Staters’ elected representatives and put forth its own radical anti-middle class agenda.
The question is whether Kelly Ayotte and New Hampshire Republican Party leaders, who endorsed Bill O’Brien and worked behind the scenes to support his divisive approach, will continue to stand by O’Brien as he works to derail the legislative process and grab power for himself?
“With the ‘kinder, gentler’ Bill O’Brien hoax now a distant memory, O’Brien’s latest power grab shows once again that he will always put his own interests first, no matter who gets hurt,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley. “After endorsing Bill O’Brien in his battle for the speakership against Shawn Jasper, Kelly Ayotte and Republican Party leaders should make clear whether they continue to stand by O’Brien as he defies the will of Granite Staters’ elected representatives and puts forth his own radical policy agenda that would hurt middle class families and take our economy backwards.”
