Controversies

2010 resignation

Horrigan resigned from the New Hampshire House of Representatives on August 12, 2010, following remarks he made on Facebook concerning Sarah Palin's death. He sent a letter of resignation to Speaker of the House Terie Norelli and apologized for his "thoughtless remarks."[9]

Horrigan was replying to a comment by Democratic candidate for New Hampshire House Keith Halloran. On a post about the plane crash in Alaska that killed former Senator Ted Stevens, Halloran wrote, "Just wish Sarah and Levy were on board." Horrigan went on to reply, "Well a dead Palin wd be even more dangerous than a live one...she is all about her myth & if she was dead she cldn't commit any more gaffes."[10]

Ryan Williams, spokesman for the New Hampshire Republican Party, said the comment was "a really callous, sick, twisted political analysis from a sitting state representative. Why are New Hampshire Democrats so obsessed with Sarah Palin dying? I don't know any normal people who spend their time discussing the death of their political rivals."[11]

On August 19, 2010, Horrigan sent a letter to Speaker of the House Terie Norelli, rescinding his August 12 resignation. However, Norelli's position was that because Horrigan's resignation became official the moment she accepted it, the resignation could not be rescinded. Immediately after the decision, Horrigan resumed his campaign and won election on November 2, 2010.[12]
