NH House Speaker Shawn Jasper demands apology from Groen
N.H. House Speaker Shawn Jasper was not ammused with Warren Groen regarding the comments he had regarding a bill introduced to the House by a class of fourth-graders.
In a press release, Jasper gave the following statement:
"Rep. Groen clearly crossed the line in his remarks during the debate on the Red Tailed Hawk. Not only was it in extremely poor taste but it also violated Mason's Rules which governs debate, that 'No one is to speak impertinently (or rudely).' The comment drawing a correlation between the Red Tailed Hawk and Planned Parenthood was offensive on many levels and I believe Rep. Groen owes an apology to not only the children of the Lincoln Ackerman School in Hampton Falls, but to his constituents and to his colleagues in the House."
