Speaker Jasper statement on Congressman Guinta


The following statement was issued this afternoon by NH House Speaker Shawn N. Jasper with regard to Congressman Frank Guinta.


While I have long have been a supporter of Congressman Guinta, it has become quite clear in recent days that his documentation and explanation of the source of his campaign contributions,  and the accounting of any taxes that may have been paid,  simply don’t add up.  As a result, the congressman should do what I believe would be in the best interest of the people of the first congressional district and step down from his position in the United States Congress. “
