State Rep. Tamara Le, D-North Hampton, was suspended Tuesday from the House Education Committee for her Facebook post stating ”(expletive) private and religious schools.”

Le, who also represents Newington, Greenland and Portsmouth’s Ward 3, has said her post was intended to shed light on the lack of anti-discrimination policies in private schools to protect people with disabilities. However, Democratic House Speaker Steve Shurtleff said her use of the F-word in the post was not only offensive but painted all private schools with a broad brush.
