New Hampshire Lawmaker Resigns After ‘Dead Palin’ Comment - Political Hotsheet
A Democratic New Hampshire state lawmaker has resigned after speculating on Facebook about Sarah Palin’s death. A second New Hampshire Democrat, an activist running for the state legislature, is apologizing for the same gaffe.
Responding to a thread on Facebook, New Hampshire State Rep. Timothy Horrigan reportedly posted a message Wednesday night that read, “Well a dead Palin wd be even more dangerous than a live one…she is all about her myth & if she was dead she cldn’t commit any more gaffes.”
Today, Horrigan posted on his website a resignation letter to the New Hampshire House speaker.
“I wish to resign from the House of Representatives effective immediately, and to discontinue my re-election campaign for Strafford County District 7,”
