Probe Opens: Did Mitt Romney's Staff Harass 'NYT' Reporter?

By: The New Hampshire Attorney General?s Office has opened an investigation into whether presidential hopeful Mitt Romney?s staff might have made an illegal traffic stop.

ConserveNH President Paul Nagy wrote a letter to Attorney General Kelly Ayotte asking her to check if Romney aides illegally stopped a New York Times reporter, checked his license plate against a database and overstepped their authority.

One of ConserveNH?s founder, Patrick Hynes, works for Sen. John McCain?s political action committee, Straight Talk America.

McCain?s New Hampshire spokeswoman Jill Hazelbaker denied any connection between the campaign and the letter.

Romney?s campaign on Wednesday denied a report that aides pulled over Times reporter Mark Leibovich, who was trailing the former Massachusetts governor?s caravan in New Hampshire, checked his license plates and told him to leave.
