Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee chairman Jennifer Horn today released the following statement in response to Governor Hassan's request that Attorney General Joseph Foster expedite his review of the NHGOP's complaints regarding Hassan's illegal campaign contributions:
"The opinion provided by the New Hampshire Department of Justice on February 10, 2012 makes it very clear that Governor Hassan's limitless special interest fundraising scheme is illegal. It is troubling that the governor thinks that the campaign contribution limits that are followed by every other state candidate do not apply to her. Governor Hassan clearly believes that she should be able to accept unlimited donations from unions, special interest groups and organizations with business before the state while she serves in the corner office. That is not the New Hampshire way, and it is a clear violation of our laws."
