For a long time now we’ve been receiving submissions from a couple of contributors and some anonymous writers about the antics surrounding a recall effort directed at School Board Chairman, Ryan Sawyers.

Face it, we knew it was only a matter of time. When we learned a number of weeks ago that the far-right political advocacy group, Americans for Prosperity (AFP), had opened an office in Prince William County, we were pretty confident we could guess which local elected officials would quickly sell out the county to

On August 8, the Muckraker reported that the FBI was investigating transactions between Prince William County and Quality Business Engineering (QBE), where Gainesville Supervisor Pete Candland was employed as Executive Vice President.
