NHGOP SLAMS SHAHEEN'S VOTE TO BLOCK BIPARTISAN BILL TO HELP VICTIMS OF TRAFFICKING

Concord - New Hampshire Republican Party Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement on Senator Jeanne Shaheen's vote to block a bipartisan anti-human trafficking bill. Today, four Democrat Senators joined with their Republican colleagues in an unsuccessful attempt to advance the legislation:

 

"Despite overwhelming bipartisan support, Senator Shaheen is putting politics ahead of supporting important legislation to help victims of human trafficking. This should be a topic on which there is bipartisan consensus, and it is shameful that extreme partisans like Senator Shaheen are blocking this bill. This is disgusting political theater at its worst, and Senator Shaheen should be embarrassed by her disgraceful behavior."
