N.H. House 'Disavows Unfounded Speculation' About Marathon Bombings

By a unanimous vote, the New Hampshire House of Representatives passed a resolution Wednesday honoring the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.

The resolution doesn’t make specific reference to remarks made by Representative Stella Tremblay.

She questioned whether the bombing was a government plot and doubted the authenticity of the injuries.

But still, it’s clear it was a direct reaction to her comments.

The resolution passed 312-0 and states the House "disavows any unfounded speculation or accusation that dishonors those affected" by the tragedy.

Minority Leader Gene Chandler was one of the resolution's sponsors. He said in a statement that New Hampshire stands with the victims, and any comments made to the contrary do not represent the state.

Representative Tremblay was not present for the vote.
