ALTON, N.H. (AP) - U.S. Rep. Frank Guinta has scheduled his first town hall meeting since the Federal Election Commission concluded that he accepted $355,000 in illegal campaign donations from his parents.

NH1 News reports (https://bit.ly/1H6PdqO) that Guinta will hold the meeting Saturday at 10:30 a.m. at the Gilman Library in Alton.

In a settlement made public in May, the FEC fined the 1st District Republican $15,000 and ordered him to repay his parents. Guinta insists the money belonged to him because for years he contributed to and managed a “family pot” of money.

Guinta, who was elected in 2010, lost to Democrat Carol Shea-Porter in 2012 and regained the seat last year, has said he will run for re-election next year despite prominent Republicans urging him to resign.
