Blood may be thicker than water... but not always :)

Rep. Frank Guinta’s (R-NH) mother contradicted his claim that $355,000 given to his 2010 campaign was his own money, the New Hampshire Union Leader (http://www.unionleader.com/article/20150603/NEWS06/150609724) reports.

“There is no evidence to support the ‘family pot defense,’ a theory he put forward claiming legal title to money in an account held solely in his parents’ names, according to FEC documents. The documents detail a $1 million fund belonging to his parents he could tap to help pay for expenses — including his mayoral campaign in Manchester, credit card bills and mortgages. But federal investigators said he had no legal right to the money. For years, Guinta has maintained the money did not belong to his parents. His mother, Virginia Guinta, told the FEC that she understood the funds were loans that would be repaid.”

Well, she only threw him after he tried to steal her money. Their Family Values don't extend to the checkbook it seems.
