New Hampshire state Representative-elect Michael F. Maloney (R) has been charged with assaulting a police officer.

According to The Laconia Daily Sun, the incident occurred while Maloney was attending a Dropkick Murphys concert in September.

Police in Gilford said that a Meadowbrook security officer approached Murphy and his group over complaints that they were being rowdy outside the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion.

Gilford Police Information Officer Lt. Kris Kelley said that Lt. James Leach and Northfield Patrol Officer Aaron Chappel responded to the call. According to Kelley, Maloney refused to stop yelling loudly and his entire group was asked to leave.

Someone in Maloney’s group called 9-1-1 because they wanted the state police to respond to the call instead of local police, Kelley said.

Maloney was accused of putting his hands in his pockets and then chest bumping one of the uniformed officers. Maloney was charged with misdemeanor assault of a police officer and released on personal recognizance bail.

The 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division was scheduled to hear the case on Monday, but Maloney was granted a continuance of 45 to 60 days to contact witnesses.

Maloney could face jail time if convicted. He was elected to his first term in the New Hampshire legislature on Nov. 6.

Trump supporters linked to Steve Bannon pushing ‘fantastical rumors’ to try to ‘pizzagate’ Joe Biden: report

Published

on

NBC News on Thursday published a blockbuster report on efforts to smear former Vice President Joe Biden.

"Some of the same people who pushed a false conspiracy theory about Hillary Clinton that first emerged in 2016 are now targeting Hunter Biden, Joe Biden's son, with similar falsehoods. Their online posts are garnering astronomical numbers of shares on social media," NBC News correspondents Ben Collins and Brandy Zadrozny reported Thursday.

"The fantastical rumors, which NBC News is declining to repeat verbatim, echo specific plot points central to 'pizzagate,' a viral disinformation campaign that predates QAnon but also falsely alleges a vast conspiracy of child abuse," NBC News explained. "There is an important difference, however. The pizzagate-style rumors in 2016 were largely confined to far-right message boards like 4chan and parts of Reddit. But the Hunter Biden iteration of the same conspiracy theory took off last weekend with the help of speculation from conservative TV hosts and members of Congress. Their theorizing can be traced back to a new website that has been promoted by President Donald Trump and his surrogates."

On Thursday, The Daily Beast reported that the attorney general of Pennsylvania is warning Trump campaign surrogates to stop videotaping voters dropping off mail-in ballots.

"In a statement, Josh Shapiro, the Democratic state attorney general, said, 'Pennsylvania law permits poll watchers to carry out very discrete and specific duties — videotaping voters at drop boxes is not one of them,'" reported Blake Montgomery.

"The campaign has filed complaints with Philadelphia officials based on the videos, alleging fraud on the part of several voters who submitted two or three ballots, according to The New York Times," continued the report. "The Trump campaign initially said the purpose of the videotaping was to catch voters who dropped off a large number of fraudulent ballots rather than one or two, according to the Times."
