Speaker Jasper statement on Congressman Guinta 

HOUSE BANNER

The following statement was issued this afternoon by NH House Speaker Shawn N. Jasper with regard to Congressman Frank Guinta.

 

While I have long have been a supporter of Congressman Guinta, it has become quite clear in recent days that his documentation and explanation of the source of his campaign contributions,  and the accounting of any taxes that may have been paid,  simply don’t add up.  As a result, the congressman should do what I believe would be in the best interest of the people of the first congressional district and step down from his position in the United States Congress. “

US Rep Guinta statement on passage of FY2016 NDAA 

banner

WASHINGTON. D.C. – Congressman Frank Guinta released the following statement following the passage of the Fiscal Year 2016 National Defense Authorization Act, an authorization bill considered by Congress every year to set funding levels for the military to continue its operations and remain a global leader:

 

“As a Congress, it is our responsibility to ensure our military has the necessary and appropriate funding to provide for our defense and protect our national security interests.  The FY2016 NDAA provides our military with essential funding levels to combat our most immediate threats around the world, while strengthening its efficiency and agility.  It’s because of our nation’s military that the United States of America remains, ‘the land of the free and home the brave.’  We owe it to our servicemembers to advance this vital funding bill. ”

NHDP - ICYMI: Nashua Telegraph Editorial: Frank Guinta’s Story “It Turns Out, Was A Lie On Top Of A Lie” 

Key Point: Frank Guinta “said he had furnished the Federal Election Commission with documentation and that the watchdog agency had ‘exonerated’ him on the issue, which, it turns out, was a lie on top of a lie… Far from exonerating him, the FEC has fined Guinta $15,000 and ordered him to repay the $355,000 he got from his parents.”
 
“… after five years of deceiving the public about the source of the money, the days when the public can take Frank Guinta’s word for anything are behind him. He should produce the deposit slips and bank records to support his latest claim and prove to voters that he’s not just piling up yet another lie on top of the others.”
 
Click here for the full Telegraph editorial or see excerpt below:
 
Rep. Frank Guinta flatly denied he got the $355,000 from his parents.
 
He denied it repeatedly – at least on those occasions when he couldn’t dance around the question.
 
… When asked to prove that the account had even existed prior to when the loans started, Guinta said he didn’t have to open his bank records to anyone.
 
… But Guinta could only dodge the question for so long. Later, he insisted in interviews that the money definitely, absolutely did not come from his parents.
 
He said he had furnished the Federal Election Commission with documentation and that the watchdog agency had “exonerated” him on the issue, which, it turns out, was a lie on top of a lie.
 
… Far from exonerating him, the FEC has fined Guinta $15,000 and ordered him to repay the $355,000 he got from his parents. The FEC determined – after reviewing the documentation that Guinta provided – that the congressman violated campaign finance laws.
 
... Now Guinta claims he and his wife put more money into the account over the years than he used to fund his run for Congress, so it was really his own money.
 
… Maybe that’s true, but after five years of deceiving the public about the source of the money, the days when the public can take Frank Guinta’s word for anything are behind him.
 
He should produce the deposit slips and bank records to support his latest claim and prove to voters that he’s not just piling up yet another lie on top of the others.
 
He doesn’t have to, of course. That’s Guinta’s prerogative. Sort of like telling the truth.

US Rep Guinta on opposition to USA Freedom Act 

banner

WASHINGTON. D.C. – Congressman Frank Guinta released the following statement following his opposition to H.R. 2048, the USA Freedom Act, which passed the House this evening:

 

“Granite Staters believe strongly in the principle of protecting and securing our civil liberties.  While this legislation addresses some of the concerns brought to attention due to the NSA revelations in 2013 and 2014, the legislation does not go far enough in including a wholesale reform of our intelligence agencies.   I will continue to fight to ensure Granite Staters most fundamental right of privacy is protected and strengthened.”
