Remember Harriet Miers? She was President George W. Bush’s choice to fill the United States Supreme Court vacancy left by Sandra Day O’Connor’s retirement. Here’s what the late Judge Robert Bork had to say about Miers back in 2005:
I posted about Ray Buckley’s utterly frivolous “ethics complaint” against Governor Sununu here.
That post, in part, covered how hack-extrodinaire John DiStaso -Ray Buckley’s go-to guy to get his message out per Steve Vaillancourt- wrote a follow-up to his original story about Ray Buckley’s nothing-burger of an ethics complaint when there was nothing to follow up on.

Say what you want about the NH House Freedom Caucus, but it is undeniable that they are doing the work that the #fakenews #nhpolitics press should be doing.
More particularly, House Speaker Shawn Jasper and his minions are proposing a smoke-and-mirrors budget that actually increases spending by $21 million over the spending increases proposed by Governor Sununu in his proposed budget. Continue reading →
