CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The New Hampshire Attorney General’s office has told the Peterborough selectmen to stop endorsing candidates for town office in next week’s election.
The New Hampshire Union Leader reports the office found two selectmen engaged in illegal electioneering by publicly endorsing a candidate for town clerk in a letter to the editor of the Monadnock Ledger and Transcript.
According to Seacoast Online, the New Hampshire Attorney General’s office has told the Peterborough selectmen to stop endorsing candidates for town office in next week’s election.
Considering that the citizens of various towns in NH have over the years been subjected to the abuse of the public dollar with regard to ‘electioneering’ by town and school officials, and not one peep is ever heard from the AG or SoS, we have to come to the conclusion that it is only ‘conservative’ town officials that are to be reprimanded.
The Peterborough Selectmen are Republicans.
In one case, Epping residents have had to take their case to a higher court.
That story and many other stories of abuse are listed in the compelled speech section of this blog. In most cases, a complaint was filed with the AG’s office and it has been our experience that not much is done about it.
