    Or will the seat remain vacant until the November election?

    •  Legislative Session (9+ / 0-)

      The NH Legislative Session ends in about 10 days.

      Originally, Mr. Bettencourt said he would resign on June 7, when the session was completed.

      However, Representative Giuda would have none of that. He demanded a full confession and immediate withdrawal from service. The ultimatum was "Resign by Noon Today" or else .. the complete falsified Independent Study Documents would be made public.

      Bettencourt folded.

      •  He has an obligation to make them public (1+ / 0-)

        Giuda is an officer of the court. Resigning was Step 1. Making the documents public should be Step 2. Step 3 should be the expulsion of Bettencourt from the law school as well as a permanent letter in the bar association files that prohibits him from becoming a lawyer. Just removing him from the legislature still allows him to work elsewhere. Hmmn, kind of like a pedophile priest getting transferred to some out of the way diocese.

        Snip.
