Ex-county attorney's lawyer seeks wrapup of probe

CONCORD - State authorities said they are continuing an investigation into a former Hillsborough County prosecutor who ran a fantasy football league from work.

Meanwhile, the laywer for Ross McLeod said the investigation needs to be completed before McLeod can be considered seriously for another job. McLeod resigned Feb. 24, after the fantasy football league emerged during his reelection campaign for town selectman.

On Monday, Senior Assistant Attorney General Jane Young said her office is still investigating the matter.

'I am hopeful we will get this resolved one way or another in the next several weeks,' Young said.

McLeod resigned his job of 3 years after Corey Lewandowski requested McLeod's email records and discovered evidence of the fantasy football league.

Lewandowski was running for treasurer in Windham, where McLeod is a selectman.

McLeod's lawyer, Roger 'Rusty' Chadwick, said McLeod is seeking employment. Chadwick said he's spoken to several attorneys who have offered to help him out.

But McLeod can't find a job until the attorney general wraps up the investigation, Chadwick said. He has encouraged McLeod's fantasy football league friends to cooperate in the investigation.

'We've got nothing to hide,' he said. In the past, Chadwick has said half of Americans would be in danger of losing their jobs if they can't run a fantasy football league at work.

McLeod was reelected and Lewandowski, the director of the free-market, limited government organization Americans for Prosperity, lost.

Hillsborough County Attorney Dennis Hogan said McLeod was 'very professional' on his last day. He said he couldn't discuss references because it is a personnel matter.
