The signs were everywhere. They told New Hampshire residents participating in Tuesday’s primary election to bring ID to the polls.
There’s only one problem: voter ID was not required for the primary election in the state of New Hampshire.

I keep seeing these confident predictions from health care experts that no state would be so foolish as to reject the Medicaid expansion for their state. I want to set up a poker game with these people, to provide for my family in retirement. How many times can you say “well that’s so radical and extreme, it could never happen!” and be wrong before you review your assumptions?

It seems almost every day there are new presidential polls of swing states showing the race is tight but with the advantage for President Obama, today is no different.

The New Hampshire State Senate narrowly failed to overturn Governor John Lynch’s (D) veto of SB 409, which would have permitted the use of medical marijuana in the state. This effectively dooms the prospects for medical marijuana in New Hampshire this year. Lynch had previously vetoed a similar medical marijuana bill in 2009, which the legislature at the time also failed to override.

In a disappointing but expected move yesterday, New Hampshire governor John Lynch vetoed a bill that would have legalized medical marijuana in the state. Lynch had vetoed a similar medical marijuana bill back in 2009.

The New Hampshire state House has voted 211 to 116 to kill HB 437, the bill that would have repealed New Hampshire’s freedom to marry law. The New Hampshire House currently has a Republican majority, guaranteeing that this is a bipartisan victory. New Hampshire was the first state to adopt a marriage equality law without pressure from the courts. Since it’s enactment in 2010, approximately 1,800 same-sex couples have married.

Rep. David Bates (R) proposed an amendment to his marriage equality repeal bill (HB 427) that would reinstate civil unions. Despite vehemently opposing civil unions in the past, the Diocese of Manchester, which constitutes “The Catholic Church in New Hampshire”, is supporting Rep. Bates’s amendment. And the same goes for NOW.

In a recent filing in Nevada, mortgage servicer LPS used the whitewash IG report from Florida — after the Fla. AG dismissed the two attorneys gathering evidence on LPS — to justify the dismissal of their lawsuit in Nevada. LPS lobbyists more recently urged the Florida AG’s office to intervene on their behalf in a criminal case in Michigan. The connections between the Florida AG’s office and LPS just continue to grow.
