additional commentary by Rep. Timothy Horrigan, member of the House Redress Committee
Attorney General Delaney's April 9, 2012 letter to Speaker Bill O'Brien (prompted largely by the Knightly petitions)
Dorothy (Dot) Knightly is one of the most colorful characters to come before the House Redress of Grievance committee. She is warm, funny and outspoken. She does, however, seem to be glossing over a few details. Her family evidently has problems which go beyond the fact that New Hampshire's family-court system is less than ideal. Dot's most recent petition was nominally filed by her daughter Candy, who made what could have been some disastrous admissions the one time she showed up for a hearing. Luckily for Candy, she had a very polite audience, and her mother did most of the talking.
The interview was taped sometime in March 2012
This is one of several TV shows which Rep. Kevin Avard has done
about the House Redress Committee. I got a
fair amount of crap from leadership for talking about the petitions
my web site, but Rep. (now ex-Rep.) Avard produced a
cable TV series and a YouTube channel, with (as far as I know) no
crappy reception whatsoever.
