Report: NH AG now investigating Tasker's alleged list of lawmakers he sold drugs to
CONCORD - The New Hampshire Attorney General is now investigating a list that allegedly contains the names of state lawmakers that shamed ex-Rep. Kyle Tasker sold drugs to.
99.1 NH1 News's Jack Heath reported on Thursday that the Attorney General is investigating Kyle Tasker's drug case and that "there is there is evidence that a number of lawmakers allegedly bought drugs from Tasker."
Tasker resigned after he was accused of trying to lure a teen girl for sex using Facebook and possessing drugs.
After Tasker's arrest reports surfaced that he kept a list of people to which he allegedly sold drugs to - including at least six state representatives and a state senator.
Heath said sources told him that the Rockingham County Attorney's Office has the list and that it has "already played a role in at least one well-known lawmaker to drop out of a statewide race."

“If it is true, it is very concerning, but at this point we don’t know anything,” House Speaker Shawn Jasper said.
He did however issue a warning.
“If there are any members who are involved in this - they know whether they were or not - and I would encourage them not to run for re-election,” he said.
Gov. Maggie Hassan had a similar message.
“Certainly, it is hard for me to imagine that any elected official who is found to have engaged in criminal activity could still earn the trust of the voters of New Hampshire,” she said.
