Concord, NH - Today the NHGOP delivered over 600 petitions to Speaker Shurtleff's Office this morning requesting that Rep. Tamara Le (D-North Hampton) be removed from the House Education Committee after using an expletive to describe her beliefs on private and religious schools.

"Rep. Le's comments are disgusting and indefensible, but are not surprising," said Chairman Stephen Stepanek. "For her to make such a statement on her official page shows just how out of touch and divisive Democrats in the legislature are. Someone with no respect for religious and private education and for New Hampshire's various religious communities has no place on the House Education Committee and we join with the citizens of the state and ask that Speaker Shurtleff remove her from the committee."
