We have to switch gears from the local loonies to the state level loonies. The latest going around with the remnants of the once respected House Republican Alliance is that they are circulating a letter for signatures, to Gene Chandler; the minority Republican Leader, requesting that he removes Shawn Jasper from his Republican leadership post. It was always my personal opinion that in any dealings I had with Jasper I always felt he was untrustworthy and should never be put in any republican leadership positions. I thought Gene learned his lesson the last time.
Evidently Jasper offended the Free Staters who have taken control of the HRA and they want him removed. What Chandler isn’t aware of is HRA is supposedly going to make a move of removing him from his position and replacing him with none other than Bully O’Brien. If you remember Bully is the former speaker that brought down the whole Republican agenda in NH, put the Republicans once again in the minority and to add insult to injury threatened to finish off the Republican survivors of the past election if they didn’t do exactly what he says. Again, my opinion is this will be a touch and go situation because I don’t think Gene has as many old guard Republicans in the House to back his play or defense against the Free Staters.
Has anyone heard how the little band of jolly Free Staters are doing about getting NH to secede from the union? You just can’t make this stuff up.
WOW boys and girls isn’t this what every Howdy Doody fan wants running their agenda and state.
I have said it before and I’ll say it again, Concord is no longer about good representation it is about, money, control and power.
