Union Leader July 20, 2020
CONCORD — Gov. Chris Sununu called on a one-term Republican state representative to resign immediately following his arrest on domestic violence charges. According to published reports, Robert L. Forsythe, 38, was arrested last June 28 with local police accusing him of choking an intimate partner who was pregnant. He’s out on bail following his arrest on felony and misdemeanor domestic violence charges.
New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence’s Karin Ashton said in a statement: “These egregious crimes he has been charged with include strangulation, which is a particularly lethal form of abuse and is known to be a common precursor to domestic violence homicide. All perpetrators must be held accountable, but elected officials who work on legislation that impacts public safety must be held to the highest standards in order to uphold the integrity of our laws and have the trust of their constituents.”
