Ted Wright, of Sanbornville, 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 Ted Wright's interview according to the AG's office:
Wright said that his wife had been diagnosed with breast cancer in 1993. In about 2010, the cancer metastasized. Wright’s wife entered a clinical trial at Dana-Farber, which reversed the course of her otherwise terminal cancer. The trial drugs made her very sick, however; only marijuana ameliorated the debilitating side effects and enabled her to remain in the trial for several years.
Wright ran for state office as a result of his wife’s experience with cancer and the manner in which marijuana helped her. He met Tasker through their shared interest in legalizing marijuana for medical use. Tasker did not solicit Wright to purchase marijuana; rather, Wright learned from someone else that Tasker sold marijuana and “linked up” with him that way. Wright once went to Tasker’s home. He did not believe that Tasker sold anything but marijuana.
Amanda Bouldin, of Manchester; Shem Kellogg, of Plaistow; Pamela Tucker, of Greenland; and Joseph Lachance, of Manchester, were also named on the list.
