To The Daily Sun,
This is an open letter to (1st District congressional candidate) Shawn O'Connor:
Mr. O'Connor, I saw you on WMUR's "Close Up" on a recent Sunday. You pretended to be mystified as to why the New Hampshire Democratic Party has prevented you from speaking at the state party onvention.
You know darn well why. If I were threatening to file or had filed a lawsuit against an organization, as you have against the NHDP, I would have zero expectation of an invitation to speak at their convention. I would be shocked if anyone spoke to me at all.
You falsely attacked a lot of good Democrats, tried to get the NHDP to pay you money to get out of the race, lied about the Puritan Restaurant having rats (the Manchester Health Department said that was false), got into Twitter fights with Union Leader reporters, and generally conducted yourself as if you were Donald Trump.
Of course, you were a Republican, so filing as an Independent and saying that you will caucus with the "Majority" (Republicans) is really like coming home — after being a Republican, a corporate Democrat, and for the past six months a so-called Bernie Democrat.
You can now try to be a spoiler for your Republican challengers, but I'm guessing their voters won't want you either.
