You might remember that back on May 7 we reported on Gainesville Supervisor Pete Candland’s attempt to pay a hyper-partisan political vendor with county funds. In a follow-up post on May 8 we disclosed that this extremely partisan vendor had actually been sued by none other than former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, who in
As we’ve written on prior occasions, we generally don’t check out what most other blogs are covering or how they’re reacting to our posts, both because we have a specific type of subjects we cover and we just don’t have time, given all the fact-checking we engage in. We’ve been informed, however, that Gainesville Supervisor
You’ve heard it again and again over the years. Saint Peter Candland self-righteously pontificating from the dais against the county budget and its salary increases (however modest) for county employees. Joined in later years by Jeanine Lawson and Ruth Anderson in guarding the pearly gates of their own professed purity, he’s repeatedly spewed a Noahic
We’ve received a submission from a contributor about the emergence of Mac Haddow and Gainesville Supervisor Pete Candland’s initial character assassination campaigns. The submission was apparently spurred by the contortions the two have engaged in over the years to try to deny any involvement with or knowledge of the smear blog, the Sheriff of Nottingham.
We normally wouldn’t report on something as bizarre as State Senator Dick Black’s (R-13) apparent bromance with Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad. It’s laughably (after all, some Syrian media allegedly thought he was a U.S. Senator) and sadly ridiculous, and a sign of the absolute vacuum of public intelligence and public morality that infects some on
These two to the left are some of the people we’re fighting for. We’re not just fighting for them as individuals, but for the people they lead, the vast majority of whom are hard-working, committed individuals who are doing the best they can to make Prince William a better place. They’re fighting every day for
We allowed a person purporting to be Mac Haddow to post a comment on our Facebook page, where he attempted to explain that his involvement in the scheme we wrote about yesterday was just a big misunderstanding with some of the Pan Am 103 families. The substance of his assertion seems to be that he
We don’t know what to say about this. It was sent to us and is completely new to us. We’d never seen it before and never knew it even existed. It’s astounding and deeply troubling. The C. McClain Haddow in this video is none other than Prince William County’s Haddow-Candland cabal leader Mac Haddow .
So what greets us in our inboxes first thing this morning? Missives about Petty Pete Candland’s latest freak-out. Stung by exposure of his hypocrisy and corruption, some evidence for which came out of Candland’s response to a FOIA request, Candland has decided to retaliate . . . . .
We’ve called people out in the past who use social media to take positions we find to be reprehensible. But most of those folks are nothing compared to the people who use social media to promote and circulate false and reprehensible things about specific individuals in our community. Things that are specifically designed to smear
