Amid Calls for Resignation, Guinta Refuses to Answer Questions

Posted May 18, 2015 at 7:36pm

There are plenty of questions surrounding Rep. Frank Guinta’s agreement to repay more than $350,000 in improper campaign contributions, but the embattled New Hampshire Republican isn’t answering them.

CQ Roll Call caught up with Guinta on Monday evening as he walked to House votes. And despite a number of lingering issues associated with his alleged violation of FEC rules in 2009 and 2010 — Was the money he loaned his campaign, as he still contends, actually his? If so, what is Guinta apologizing for? — he repeatedly refused to substantively answer a single question regarding his agreement to repay the $355,000 his parents allegedly gave his campaign, in addition to a $15,000 penalty levied by the Federal Election Commission.
