NH GOP - NOMINATION OF SHAHEEN ENDORSED OBAMA APPOINTEE WHO DEFENDED COP KILLER WITHDRAWN 

Concord - President Barack Obama today officially withdrew the radical nomination of Debo Adegbile to lead the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division. In March, Senator Jeanne Shaheen voted with a minority of senators to confirm Adgebile, who used groundless charges of racism to try to free a convicted cop killer. His nomination was rejected by a 47-52 bipartisan vote.

 

"Debo Adegbile was the wrong person for the job, and Senator Shaheen's support for this radical nomination reminds New Hampshire that she blindly votes with President Obama 99 percent of the time. Senator Shaheen ignored the serious concerns voiced by New Hampshire's law enforcement community because she is incapable of standing up to the president and providing independent leadership for her constituents." said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "We are pleased that this outrageous nominee failed to gain the support needed to serve in this critical position."

 

Politico reports that Adegbile drew opposition from national law enforcement organizations for his work representing Mumia Abu-Jamal, who was convicted of killing Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner in 1981. The Fraternal Order of Police and the National Association of Police Officials, which described Adegbile as someone who "made his name defending one of the most notorious and unrepentant cop killers around," vigorously opposed the nomination.

 

Roll Call reports that Shaheen ran away from Capitol Hill reporters when asked about her decision following the vote. "I think he's well qualified," Sen. Jeanne Shaheen said of Adegbile as she rushed into an elevator.

Fresh off his win in the New Hampshire Republican primary, Scott Brown stopped by Huddleston Hall at the University of New Hampshire on Friday afternoon with Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul to hold a unity rally.
 
University of New Hampshire Student Body President Joseph Sweeney. also a state representative, kicked off the rally with a passionate speech dedicated to Brown.
 
“Scott will be an independent voice for our state, fighting for students and their families,” Sweeney said. “The time is now to unify our party and vote for change in November.”
  

 
While many of the audience members were college students, Brown made sure to explain to them the importance of taking a hard look at the state the country is in.
 
“You deserve better. All the challenges we are facing now are going to fall all on you,” Brown said. “We're the party of opportunity. We want you to live the American dream. That's my party, that's who I am. We are Americans first. You're young Americans and the responsibility is going to fall on each and every one of you.”
 

 
Many members of the audience agreed with Brown's sentiments.
 
“He's going down there to do something,” Deb Kajander said. “That's what we need. He's going to listen. What you see is what you get with him.”
 

  
Brown's words seemed to strike a chord with young voters as well.
 
“He's so vocal. He's going to get the job done,” UNH student Marissa Anderson said. “Shaheen has voted with Obama so much. That's so hard to take that down.”
 
“So far he's definitely the one I'm voting for,” fellow UNH student Katherine Dzenis said. “In terms of what's right, he's there.”

NHGOP CALLS ON SHAHEEN TO CANCEL FUNDRAISER AT HOME OF WASHINGTON LOBBYIST TIED TO PROSTITUTION RING 

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today called on Senator Jeanne Shaheen to cancel a fundraiser this evening at the home of a Washington lobbyist tied to a prostitution ring.

 

"Granite Staters expect their elected officials to adhere to high ethical standards, and it's unseemly for Senator Shaheen to be involved in the sleazy underside of Washington politics," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "It is disgraceful that Senator Shaheen chose to kick off the general election campaign with a fundraiser at the home of a financial services lobbyist who has been convicted of illegal gift giving and tied to a prostitution ring. She needs to immediately cancel this fundraiser and return all donations from this disgraceful event."

 

The Daily Caller today reported that Senator Shaheen is scheduled to attend a fundraiser this evening at the posh Georgetown home of Bill Broydrick, a prominent Washington lobbyist.

 

In 2007, the Associated Press reported that Broydrick's phone number was found in phone records released by Jeane Palfrey, the infamous "D.C Madam". For 13 years, Palfrey operated a high-end prostitution business in Washington. Broydrick received three calls from her in 2004.

 

According to the Capital Times of Madison, Wisconsin, Broydrick also pleaded guilty in 1989 to providing an illegal gift to former Wisconsin state Sen. Gary George.
