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 April 21, C.R. B. wrote a post on the “Evolution of Ruth Anderson.” Well, in just the few short days since then it appears Anderson has made another evolutionary leap. This time to the use of the “Knife in the Back” technique.

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. Now we have learned that Supervisor Candland and QBE have parted ways.
On October 24 we ran a post regarding the rise of alt-right, anti-Semitic tweets that originated with self-identified Trump supporters and targeted Jewish journalists. An Anti-Defamation League (ADL) report noted that there is evidence that Trump contributed to the environment in which reporters were targeted, citing Trump’s references to them as “absolute scum,” and his
