PLAISTOW, N.H. (AP) - An attempt to question U.S. Rep. Frank Guinta about his campaign finance issues during a town hall meeting at a New Hampshire American Legion was cut off by the post commander.

WMUR-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1Mhit3R ) Commander David Meaney told the woman that no political questions would be accepted at Monday’s meeting because the American Legion is a non-political organization. Meaney was reportedly concerned the post could lose its charter.

The woman, who declined to be identified, questioned Guinta about his recently signed conciliation agreement with the Federal Election Commission. The FEC concluded that Guinta took $355,000 in illegal campaign donations from his parents.

Guinta, who has ignored pressure to resign, did not respond to the question. He says he did not ask Meaney to ban political questions at the town hall.
