RELEASE: Following Capitol Riots, NHDP Files Right-To-Know Request for Information About Gordon MacD
Concord, N.H. -- Today, the New Hampshire Democratic Party filed a right-to-know request asking for information about former New Hampshire Attorney General Gordon MacDonald’s communications and involvement with the Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) following reports that RAGA’s dark-money arm, the Rule of Law Defense Fund, sent out robocalls encouraging people to march to the U.S. Capitol the day before the building was stormed by a pro-Trump mob. You can read the full right to know request here.
Gordon MacDonald has a long history with the RAGA. The RAGA released this statement upon MacDonald's nomination as Attorney General. MacDonald is listed among its member AGs and has a profile on its website. The organization also tweeted to congratulate him on his confirmation as AG and wished him a happy birthday earlier this year.
The right to know request sent by Ray Buckley, chair of the New Hampshire Democratic Party, asks for “any communications between Attorney General Gordon MacDonald, his office, or representatives thereof and the Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA), the Rule of Law Defense Fund, Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall, or representatives.”
“As a potential New Hampshire Supreme Court Justice, Granite Staters have every right to know about Gordon MacDonald’s involvement with the Republican Attorneys General Association following reports that the group urged people to converge on the Capitol the day before the building was stormed,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley.
