Conservative New Hampshire Republican Party leader and corruption fighter Andy Martin says that New Hampshire State GOP chairman Jennifer Horn should not be criticizing Donald Trump. Criticism of candidates is a role reserved for candidates and activists, not for official party leaders who must remain neutral. Martin has promised to start running attack ads against Horn in September (they may be delayed to early October) because Horn acts and apparently believes her role as state chairman permits her to act as a roving commissioner of morality. “In June I gave the state committee 90 days to remove Horn, and the toadies on the GOP’s state committee have done nothing. Horn continues running her mouth. Soon she will have alienated everyone. Horn’s big mouth is helping to kill off the New Hampshire primary, which is already on life support. She must be removed. Period. She has no business distorting the facts and using Fox News’ false version of reality to attack Donald Trump.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Andy Martin criticizes New Hampshire state GOP chairman Jennifer Horn for attacking Donald Trump
Andy says “Horn has no business running her mouth attacking presidential candidates”
Andy says Horn is acting as a stooge for Fox News; Megyn Kelly was a character assassin during the faux Fox news “debate” and Kelly should not be immune from return fire by Trump
Andy will start running attack ads on New Hampshire media in October seeking to remove Horn as chairman
(Chicago, IL) (August 10, 2015)
I am not supporting Donald Trump as a candidate and have no connection with Trump’s campaign. I am an independent media and conservative analyst and activist. Because of my unalterable opposition to Jeb Bush, I am not supporting or endorsing any presidential candidate. I will support any Republican candidate for president except Jeb Bush.
Dear Granite State Republican Party committee member:
When the cat’s away the mice will play. It seems that every time I leave New Hampshire on an anti-corruption mission Jennifer Horn starts running her mouth and attacking some candidate or other (see link below).
In June I gave you 90 days to remove Horn or I would take to the airwaves to seek her removal. Well, approximately 60 of those 90 days have passed, and either in late September or early October my attack ads against Horn will begin.
Megyn Kelly is everytign Horn says Kelly is (“intelligent, educated…” On that much we agree. But Kelly is also a faux “journalist” who was used last week by the powers-that-be behind Fox News to assassinate the character of Donald Trump.
Kelly cherry-picked some old comments Trump may have made years ago (Kelly produced no evidence of when or where the comments were made) and used them to suggest Trump is anti-woman. I see no evidence whatsoever that Trump is anti-woman. Trump is used to trash talking in his television role and he is having something of a difficult transition to presidential politics where different standards apply.
Now let me be clear. Trump alone is responsible for his language. I would not have spoken as he did. I would have slammed Kelly even harder, but with more polite words. But Trump’s language is not the issue.
The state GOP constitution and bylaws mandate that party officials remain neutral. When you are slamming a presidential candidate you are violating party neutrality. In June Horn attacked a sitting GOP congressman over an opaque campaign finance dispute. Horn simply can’t stop herself from running her mouth.
Honestly, I have no problem with Horn mouthing off and expressing her opinions as an ordinary Republican. I am not a party official and I express my own opinions freely. You know me for that. But a party chairman surrenders his or her free speech in order to become a neutral party leader.
Horn falsely claims she has a “responsibility as chairman” to attack candidates who displease her (see link below). She has no such “responsibility.” Are you aware of any such “responsibility” in our party’s bylaws? She voluntarily surrendered some of her free speech rights when she accepted the role of neutral party chairman.
Particularly when Trump was ambushed by Kelly’s distortions and misrepresentations, along with those of Bret Baier and Chris Wallace, Trump has a right to hit back and hard. Fox News has a constitutional right to act on a biased basis. But then Fox News cannot claim to be a neutral and impartial “news” organization. Asking “tough” questions does not translate into asking “dirty” questions, or into attacking one candidate (Trump) while shielding another candidate from even worse misbehavior (Jeb Bush).
Fox News did not act impartially last Thursday. Fox News employees were doing the bidding of Fox News owners and executives who dislike Trump. It’s a “New York thing,” having nothing to do with the presidential race.
I urge you to remove Horn before my broadcast ads seeking Horn’s removal start running.
The New Hampshire primary is already on life support due to the power grab of Fox News to arrogate the authority over who can debate and who can be a national candidate. Horn is just helping Fox News drive our primary into the ground so Fox News can make millions by hijacking the audience.
Please have the backbone to remove Horn.
As I said at the outset, Horn has no right to decide who is and who is not a candidate, or how national candidates conduct themselves. In 2014 Horn ran a rigged primary for the U.S. Senate; she imported a Massachusetts liberal to run as a Granite State senate candidate and tried to run other local candidates out of the race; and she alienated conservatives who did not support the phony candidate. We lost a senate seat that a local Granite Stater could have won. If Horn had run an honest and impartial primary, all of the candidates would have joined together and worked together to elect the winner. We did not.
Horn is a failed leader whose approach to politics continues to divide us and to drive the party into the ground. How long are you going to continue to tolerate her antics?
