Close on the heels of revelations about the Pete Candland Cabal’s 4th of July forgery, we received submissions about his mentor and cabal co-leader, Mac Haddow’s, attempts to take control of the Prince William County Republican Party. This is the only post we have ever put up based solely on the word of local Republicans,
We earlier reported on two elements of Gainesville Supervisor Pete Candland’s meltdown at the June 21, 2016, Board of Supervisors meeting. In the first, we recounted Potomac Supervisor Maureen Caddigan’s calm courage in calling out Candland’s FOIA hypocrisy, its cost to taxpayers, and the involvement of Mac Haddow. With the second we chronicled Chairman Corey
We had other stuff ready to run today, but decided to stop the presses since we’ve been deluged by people wanting to comment and wanting us to post on something else. That something else is the portion of the June 21, 2016, BOCS meeting dealing with the cost to taxpayers of FOIA requests that Gainesville
We’ve said before that we have trouble keeping up with all the materials people send us. It’s time consuming to review them and see if the assertions people make are consistent with what the documents show. But our readership appears to have grown exponentially. So much so, in fact, that it might be fair to
On May 26, we exposed the involvement of Mac Haddow in the predecessor character assassination blog to the Sheriff, the Gainesville Truth Squad. Haddow, as we’ve mentioned before, is Gainesville Supervisor Pete Candland’s appointee to the County Strategic Planning Committee, Chair of the Joint Gainesville-Brentsville Budget Committee, sometime Supervisor Pete Candland staffer, spouse and father-in-law

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 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 . . . . .
When we published a story on Gainesville Supervisor Pete Candland’s generous self-reimbursement practices using taxpayer funds, we were surprised by the email reactions we received. Most people, it turned out, were not particularly upset about his mileage reimbursement practices – except that almost everyone thought he was a hypocritical cheapskate for reimbursing himself for trips
