House votes to investigate degrading comments allegedly made by N.H. rep
The House voted overwhelmingly Thursday to look into the conduct of embattled state Rep. Robert Fisher, recently accused of being the secret creator of a misogynistic online forum.
The decision came hours after more than two dozen people rallied outside the State House calling for the Laconia Republican’s resignation.
Top party leaders, including Gov. Chris Sununu, have called on Fisher to step down ever since the Daily Beast reported the second-term representative appears to have founded “The Red Pill” and made online comments degrading women’s intelligence. Fisher has said his words were taken out of context and has resisted calls to resign.
He voted in favor of the inquiry Thursday, saying he is confident the matter will be resolved quickly.
