Former NH deputy county atty fights allegations
MANCHESTER, N.H.—A former deputy county attorney in New Hampshire is fighting allegations that he was using his work email inappropriately to talk about fantasy football.
A member of Americans for Progress filed for the emails from Ross McLeod of Hillsborough County under the Freedom of Information Act. Corey Lewandowski said it was a form of gambling.
Assistant Attorney General Jane Young says an investigation is ongoing.
WMUR-TV reports (http://bit.ly/ye5S04) McLeod resigned a week ago, but decided to withdraw that resignation. His attorney says the reality is half of America could lose their jobs tomorrow if fantasy football emails suddenly became gambling and investigated by attorney general's offices.
Lewandowski said if this involved a workplace in the private sector, he would have no problem with it.
