Pamela Tucker, of Greenland, was named by the N.H. Attorney General's office on Friday as a member of the N.H. Legislature that bought drugs from former state Rep. Kyle Tasker.
The AG's office completed its investigation and found that five lawmakers were in contact with Tasker and/or paid him.
They conducted interviews with the four people still living. The office said each of the four state representatives was represented by counsel and signed a proffer agreement that limits the state’s ability to use information provided by a
witness so long as the witness is deemed to be truthful.
No criminal charges will be filed. Below is Pamela Tucker's interview according to the AG's office:
Tucker was evasive during her interview with the AGO. Ultimately, Tucker said that she bought marijuana from Tasker only once and on another occasion, bought two small vials of “elixir” containing marijuana from him.
The latter, she said, she bought for “sleep and energy.” She purchased the marijuana from Tasker at the Storrs Street garage. Tucker also accompanied a friend to Tasker’s home to pick up marijuana, which he left for the friend inside an outdoor grill.
(The information about the grill is consistent with other evidence obtained by the AGO.)
Tucker suggested that personal problems prompted her to medicate herself with the marijuana and the liquid she bought from Tasker, but refused to elaborate further. She said she stopped buying from him because it was hypocritical to use marijuana when her official position as a legislator was to oppose its use.
Amanda Bouldin, of Manchester; Shem Kellogg, of Plaistow; Joseph Lachance, of Manchester; and Ted Wright, of Sanbornville, were also named on the list.
