HOUSE DEMOCRATS RENEW CALL FOR SPEAKER TO REMOVE CONSPIRACY THEORIST FROM HOUSE LEADERSHIP POSITION

Tonight, House Democratic Leader Renny Cushing (D-Hampton) and Ranking Democrat on House Finance Rep. Mary Jane Wallner (D-Concord) delivered a letter to Speaker Packard, renewing their request from September 22 for the removal of Rep. Ken Weyler (R-Kingston) from his position as Chair of the House Finance and Fiscal Committees. An excerpt of the letter is below and the full correspondence is attached:

“It is reported that you told the New Hampshire Bulletin “It is not uncommon, whether one agrees or disagrees with the content, for a committee chair to share constituent information with committee members.” However, Representative Weyler’s comments to In Depth NH yesterday are contrary to that sentiment. Representative Weyler told In Depth NH that his dissemination of the information to Fiscal Committee members was Weyler himself “speaking my mind as a state rep…” and referred to the constituents who sent him the information as helping him, noting “If I'm a nut, why do I have others helping me?”

We note that Chair Weyler has chosen to repeatedly ignore your directive regarding the “importance of respecting information provided by our trusted health officials.” With extreme urgency, we once again ask you to remove Rep. Weyler from his leadership position on the House Finance and Fiscal Committees.”
