CONCORD — Two years ago, I wrote that New Hampshire election laws had become confused and irrelevant. The situation has not improved.
This year, another brick in the crumbling wall of campaign finance limits has tumbled down. If you’re a First Amendment zealot like me, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. If you’re a Granny D or John McCain disciple, it’s a portent of doom.
You may have read in the papers that New Hampshire recently changed its laws to allow people of the same sex to get married. Some people, including a number of Republican candidates, want to change the law back. Others would like to keep the new law in place. Both sides support candidates who agree with them and oppose candidates who disagree. I hope we can all agree that all of this is proper in a democratic republic.
