Letter: Hypocrisy from Shaheen
U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen is about as hypocritical as a politician can get.
After five years (five, count ’em) of raising money for her reelection campaign, mostly out of state, now she has a change of heart. Calling for the so-called “Citizens Pledge” is just an example of her having her millions in her campaign account and not wanting anyone else to be able to challenge her financially. Let’s not forget that it wasn’t too long ago that she missed a session and a vote in the Senate, a “scheduling conflict,” so she could go to an out of state fund raiser. She manages to leave that out when she speaks about campaign finance reform. To call on any potential opponent to eschew any campaign funding source after her coast-to-coast effort demonstrates her disdain for the intelligence of the New Hampshire voter. Her loyalties lie with the Democratic Party, not the people of New Hampshire.
