Ethically Challenged NJ Senator Raising Money For Shaheen Because She Shares His “Values”
Concord – New Hampshire Republican Party Chairman Jennifer Horn today called on Senator Jeanne Shaheen to return tainted contributions she received from a fundraising email authored by ethically challenged New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez. According to the Washington Post (3/14/13) Menendez is currently being investigated by a federal grand jury for his “role in advocating for the business interests of a wealthy donor.”
“It is disgraceful that Senator Shaheen would welcome tainted contributions from a politician who is at the center of a major ethics scandal and being investigated by a federal grand jury. In order to uphold the integrity of her office, Senator Shaheen needs to immediately return Menendez’s dirty money and call for him to step down as chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations,” said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn.
In an email sent out by Menendez on April 6 to donors, Menendez asked for contributions because Shaheen shares his “values.”
“We have to fight back if they come for Jeanne. She shares our values and stands up for them,” wrote Menendez. “We can’t take any chances with Jeanne.”
“New Hampshire voters want to be represented by independent and principled leaders who will stand up to the culture of corruption in Washington. They don’t want a senator like Jeanne Shaheen who shares her values with an ethically challenged New Jersey politician,” said Horn.
Shaheen also accepted a $7,500 contribution from Menendez’s New Millennium PAC (Opensecrets.org) that she has refused to return.

Teens Robbed of I-pod/Cell Phone


MANCHESTER, NH- On Monday, February 11, 2013, at about 6:30 PM, Manchester Police responded to a Clay Street address for a report of a robbery.  On arrival, they met with two 16 year old Manchester teens who reported they had been the victims of a robbery a short time earlier on Somerville Street, near Belmont Street.


According to the boys, they were walking in the area when they were approached by two men, one of whom demanded their belongings, indicating his companion had a gun, although no gun was observed.


One of the boys surrendered his I-pod Nano and Galaxy S3 cell phone and the men left.  They were last seen leaving the area as passengers in an older, dark colored 4-door sedan operated by a third individual who was possibly wearing a red sweatshirt.


The first suspect was described as a white male in his forties, about 6’3” tall with a slender build and dark “stubble” on his face.  He was last seen wearing a dark colored vest and a green “beanie” style hat.  The second man, alleged to have possessed a gun, was described as a clean-shaven white male in his forties with an average height and build.  He was last seen wearing a camouflage shirt and khaki pants.
