Laughton has already filed paperwork as a Democratic candidate in the Sept. 9 primary election for Nashua’s Ward 4 House seat. However, it will be up to the Ballot Law Commission to determine whether she is eligible to run.
“Typically, the commission will make a decision on that day,” said Karen Ladd, assistant secretary of state.
“The last year was a struggle financially,” admits Laughton, who says she has been making regular small payments toward the restitution. She recently obtained a new job, and is hopeful to make more substantial amounts toward the restitution in the near future.
Under state statute, “A person sentenced for a felony, from the time of his sentence until his final discharge, may not … become a candidate for or hold public office.”
