    New Hampshire Institute of Politics Executive Director Neil Levesque summarized the results, saying, “In the closing stretch of this election, Republican candidates have gained the momentum and are in position to score some upsets. Of the incumbents, Governor Chris Sununu and Congresswoman Annie Kuster seem poised to win re-election, but Senator Maggie Hassan and Congressman Chris Pappas are facing stiff challenges. Polls are snapshots of voter attitudes in time, not predictions, and candidates will have the opportunity to make their final arguments in this week’s closing debates.”

Though most of these cases were referred to US attorneys for prosecution, only one of the individuals was ever charged with a crime. Prosecutors sent the rest of the cases back to the CIA to handle internally, meaning few faced any consequences beyond the possible loss of their jobs and...
