Concord – Despite her public attacks against outside money groups, Governor Maggie Hassan’s campaign this week posted b-roll video on its campaign YouTube account for third party groups to use in ads. NH1 News reports that the stock footage was posted on Sunday.
“Governor Hassan obviously posted this stock footage for liberal special interest groups to use in third party ads. The governor has been caught red-handed giving dark money groups the green light to begin flooding New Hampshire's airwaves,” said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "The Governor can’t have it both ways by publicly attacking outside political groups while quietly welcoming their support. If Governor Hassan actually cares about limiting the influence of Super PACs, she needs to put her money where her mouth is and join Senator Ayotte in signing the same People’s Pledge that Senators Elizabeth Warren and Jeanne Shaheen signed.”
Governor Hassan has a disgraceful history of breaking campaign finance laws. In 2014, the New Hampshire Department of Justice forced her to return $33,000 in illegal campaign contributions.
