Thank judicial system treats everyone the same? Hlllary knows better

To The Daily Sun,

For those of you out there who think the judicial system treats everyone the same, then you didn't watch the FBI director avoiding direct answers to some of the questions from the House Oversight Committee and admitted they ignored a lot of Hillary's lies to others for one reason or another.

One statement in his appearance really says it all and confirms that she got special treatment: "To be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences."

I guess it couldn't be any clearer than that and unless your IQ is less then your age you should be awfully concerned about what happened.

Daily Sun headline wrongly implied illegal meetings are being held

To The Daily Sun,

We, the Sanbornton selectmen, strongly urge you to issue a correction to a letter written by Mr. Bill Whalen (published July 21) that you have titled, "(Sanbornton) Selectmen met in private 11 times in the last 3 months." 

This title accuses the selectmen of committing a crime, as it is illegal in the State of New Hampshire for selectmen to meet in "private."

The Sanbornton Selectboard has met in "non-public" sessions over the past few months. These meetings were permitted and legal because N.H. RSA 91-A-3 II(c) reads, "Matters which, if discussed in public would likely affect adversely the reputation of any person, other than a member of the board (may be discussed in a non-public session) unless such person requests an open meeting."

The Sanbornton Selectboard and our town lawyer await you correction.

(Editor's note: The author of the referenced letter used the words "secret" and "non-public" to describe the meetings in question. An editor chose to substitute the word "private" for "secret" in the headline placed above the letter. Neither the letter writer nor the newspaper were implying that anything illegal or extralegal was going on. The selectmen are correct in that New Hampshire law refers to legal meetings to which the public is not allowed access as "non-public." But one can argue that the words "private" and "non-public" used, in this context, are synonyms. The result in the same: the public is not allowed to listen in.)
