The Nashua Telegraph is reporting that Stacie Laughton is withdrawing from becoming a New Hampshire state representative after it was revealed that she had been convicted of a felony for committing credit card fraud.
“After a lot of thought and after talking with the state party chair and my Democratic caucus director, I’ve decided to resign my position of state representative-elect,” Laughton was quote as saying in the Telegraph.
More from the story:
“A lot of my supporters did know, and the ones that didn’t know, they didn’t ask,” Laughton said, referring to her criminal past. “I would’ve been more than happy to discuss it with them if they had asked me if I had any criminal background … I don’t feel as though that I ever deceived anyone, but for those that feel as though that they were deceived, I am truly sorry and that was never my intention.”
