CONCORD, N.H.—The failure of a New Hampshire mortgage firm is crossing paths once again with Republican Senate candidate Kelly Ayotte.
The lawyer for Banking Commissioner Peter Hildreth wants to take testimony from the former attorney general in preparation for a Nov. 29 removal hearing regarding Hildreth, who's accused of mismanaging the Financial Resources Mortgage crisis.
The New Hampshire Union Leader reports Thursday that lawyer David Nixon has asked to take depositions from up to 15 people, including Ayotte; Gov. John Lynch; securities regulators; and Justice and Banking department staff.
Ayotte testified before a Legislative committee that concerns about the company never reached her desk. A review of thousands of her e-mails made public hasn't shown any documents about the firm.
