NHDP - When Will NHGOP Chair Demand an Investigation into NHGOP Employee David Chesley?

When Will NHGOP Chair Demand an Investigation into NHGOP Employee David Chesley and Top Staffer for the Romney Campaign in NH?
Concord – New Hampshire Republicans are stooping to a new low in partisan hypocrisy.  This morning the NHGOP alleged individuals who while living and working in New Hampshire exercised their constitutional right to vote were committing voter fraud. But that is exactly what multiple Romney campaign staffers and other GOP operatives did last fall.  One Republican staffer was even housed by the NHGOP’s current employee and political director.
“How long before Jennifer Horn demands an investigation into her own political director for in her words, ‘aiding and abetting individuals who are undermining New Hampshire law?’” asked New Hampshire Democratic Party Communications Director Harrell Kirstein.  “Even for the desperate NHGOP, these false and misleading attacks are a pathetic new low given that their own employee was engaged in the exact same behavior.  They should apologize to all the individuals they falsely accused today and to the voters of New Hampshire for their shameful stunt.”
Last fall, Mitt Romney’s top staffer in New Hampshire, Phil Valenziano  voted from an address in Manchester.  Currently he is the political director for Republican Iowa Governor Terry Barnstead according to his social media page.  Another  Republican staffer Marian Ward voted from an address in Concord where she was living with the  New Hampshire Republican State Committee’s current political Director David Chesley. 
Just like other US citizens over the age of 18 who move to New Hampshire for their job, campaign workers have the right to vote where they are living and domiciled on Election Day.  In New Hampshire, a US citizen over the age of 18 is eligible to vote where they are domiciled: “that one place where a person, more than any other place, has established a physical presence and manifests an intent to maintain a single continuous presence." [RSA 654:12
“This pathetic ploy is merely the latest dishonest attack on voting rights and voting laws by New Hampshire Republicans – a mirror of the attacks mounted by the irresponsible Bill O’Brien and Jeb Bradley led legislature that voters rejected last fall,” continued Kirstein.   “Republicans think that making it harder for New Hampshire citizens to cast a ballot and attacking those who do will help them during the next election.  But in the United States of America the people choose their elected representatives, politicians don’t choose their voters.”

ICYMI: Jennifer Horn: Hassan's leadership failures on full display in budget process


Gov. Maggie Hassan has been quick to take credit for the passage of the bipartisan state budget. However, a review of the budget process shows that her dubious claims of providing fiscal leadership do not reflect reality. 


The No. 1 priority for the governor is to develop a balanced, fiscally sound budget proposal to kick off the budget season. Unfortunately, she presented an unaffordable plan in February that increased state spending by $1 billion - a 10 percent increase over the previous budget. Her proposal included numerous taxes and spending increases and a delay in important business tax reforms passed last session by Republicans. Her budget was "balanced" with $80 million in non-existent casino fees, a plan that was rejected by the Democrat-controlled House.

Obamacare is a 906-page law that has generated - so far - at least 10,000 pages of federal regulations to direct the activity in one-seventh of the U.S. economy. And some people are surprised that it is too complex to be implemented on schedule?
