To The Daily Sun,
Belknap County Democrats are disturbed by the recent allegations of questionable behavior by state Rep. Robert Fisher (R-Belmont, Laconia). The alleged link of Rep. Fisher to the online forum The Red Pill does not represent actions or opinions appropriate for our elected officials, and neither his values nor his beliefs are representative of the citizens in Belmont and Laconia.
If these allegations are proven to be accurate, Belknap County Democrats join with the New Hampshire Democratic Party and N.H. Young Democrats in asking for Rep. Fisher's resignation.
A special election should be held subsequently to replace him. Rep. Fisher's constituents should not have to wait until the election of 2018 to weigh in, as suggested by the Speaker of the House. Action needs to be taken now!
