Ray Buckley -Chairman of the New Hampshire Democrat Party- was recently taken to task, and deservedly so, for referring to disaffected voters who might be inclined to vote for President Trump as “white supremacists.”
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.

One of the worst kept secrets is that Executive Councilor Chris Pappas’ 2014 reelection campaign was the first act in his running for Congress in 2016.
