Lawmaker who spread Boston bombing conspiracy theory resigns
A New Hampshire state legislator who drew fire for claiming the Boston Marathon bombing was an inside job has resigned from office. State Rep. Stella Tremblay (R-Auburn) sent a letter of resignation to House Speaker Terrie Norelli (D-Portsmouth) Thursday, just before lawmakers convened to pass the state budget, WMUR reports. The move comes a day after Tremblay emailed the entire 424-member legislature to reiterate her claims and suggest the need for more investigation into the April attacks. Reasons for her resignation were not immediately disclosed Thursday. WMUR points out that Tremblay sold her Auburn home for $410,000 earlier this week.
