Online invectives land NH lawmakers in trouble

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A legislative committee in New Hampshire is deciding what to do about a Republican lawmaker who created a misogynistic online forum and a Democratic lawmaker accused of making offensive comments on Twitter.

The panel is meeting Wednesday to discuss whether to recommend that the full House reprimand, censure, expel or take no action against Rep. Robert Fisher of Laconia and Rep. Sherry Frost of Dover.

Fisher is under fire for creating a Reddit forum called "The Red Pill," which bills itself as a discussion of sexual strategies for men and includes a post in which users debate whether "every woman wants to be attractive enough to be raped." Frost said on Twitter that men telling her to calm down make her homicidal and white, Christian men represent a terrorist problem.
