Response to Boston Marathon bombing
Following the bombing at the Boston Marathon in April 2013, Tremblay left a comment on the Facebook page of conservative radio host Glenn Beck, arguing that it was "a Black Ops 'terrorist' attack" conducted by the U.S. government. Officials from both the New Hampshire Democratic and Republican parties were quick to speak against Tremblay's statement, and House Republican leader Gene Chandler said that her views were not representative of the caucus, party, or state.
The House voted to admonish Tremblay's comments. She later apologized, but urged further questions on the government's involvement.
Tremblay resigned on June 20, 2013. In her resignation letter, she cited the need to move out of her district to be with her parents; she sold her house for $410,000 earlier in the week.
The Huffington Post published Tremblay's letter in full. In the letter, she called for an investigation into the Boston bombings, as well as the end of direct election of U.S. Senators. She also said that God grants and takes away governmental authority, and apologized to Rep. Steve Vaillancourt (R) for not supporting him during his own 2012 controversy in which he made a Nazi salute on the House floor in protest.
The previous day, Tremblay sent an email to all of her House colleagues. The message contained links that Tremblay said tied the government to the Boston attacks.
