Report: Bettencourt Faked Internship Reports

NH lawmaker claims House Majority Leader falsified work to get law degree.

Report: Bettencourt Faked Internship Reports

The New Hampshire Union Leader reports that state Rep. J. Brandon Giuda claims House Majority Leader D.J. Bettencourt falsified internship reports to the University of New Hampshire School of Law.

Bettencourt announced Friday , because of his new job as executive director of the New Hampshire Legal Rights Foundation. But Giuda, R-Chichester, alleges it was related to false internship reports. Bettencourt was interning, at least in part, through Giuda's law practice. Read about it on the New Hampshire Union Leader website.

In an interview with Patch on Friday, Bettencourt said he will be the spokesman for the NHLRF and will be fundraising on their behalf. This caused the potential for conflict of interest, which he said was a motivating factor in his resignation.
