New Hampshire state Rep. Stella Tremblay (R-Auburn) said Wednesday she would not apologize for suggesting the government was behind the Boston Marathon bombing.
“I am not a great writer,” she told the Londonderry Patch. “I am not politically correct. I was just pointing out the fact that there is a possibility that the government is involved. You know, in history, top down, bottom up, has always happened.”
When told that both Democrats and Republicans had called on her to apologize, Tremblay responded: “What am I going to apologize for, asking questions?”
Last Friday, Tremblay posted a Facebook message on Glenn Beck’s fan page that claimed the U.S. government secretly carried out the “black ops” Boston attack and that the suspect who was arrested was merely a patsy. The post linked to an Alex Jones video.
