CONCORD, NH (The Barbed Wire) – Maggie Hassan, governor of New Hampshire, has issued a state of emergency for the entire state of New Hampshire. The governor said the state has become saturated with political ads, with reports of some needing to be rescued from said ads. 9-1-1 operators say calls are coming in from people screaming that they are drowning in political ads.
“The state has been hit with $100 million in political ads for this primary season,” said the governor. “The citizenry is politically weary, and any more ads may push them over the edge. Already, the needle on the state’s bullshit meter has broken off trying to keep up with the lies, half-truths, and allegations contained in the ads.”
Several counties in and around the bigger metropolitan areas in New Hampshire are under political ad warnings until next Wednesday. It’s not just the ads either.
