Mormons Lead the Way

One of the things about the 2016 Presidential race that has confounded some is the continued strong support Donald J. Trump has among conservative, predominantly-white, religious groups. This hasn’t been a source of consternation solely to Democrats. After all, with opposition to abortion and reproductive rights being such a core issue for religious conservatives, it’s

Analysis: Corey Stewart’s Trump Gambit

Some readers have complained that the Muckraker hasn’t been appropriately critical of Prince William BOCS Chair, Corey Stewart. As you might expect, those complaints have reached a fever pitch in recent days, especially after Stewart’s firing yesterday by the Trump campaign.

Candland Renews His Transparency and Accountability Charade

He released it to great fanfare. Or at least with what passes for great fanfare in the Haddow-Candland Cabal echo chamber. We’re speaking, of course, about Gainesville Supervisor and Mac Haddow protégé Pete Candland’s “Transparency and Accountability Project.” You remember his description, right?

Candland, Corruption and Constant Contact

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

More Than Meets the Eye . . . Thank You Sheriff

We read in InsideNova that the School Board voted 7-0 on Wednesday evening to remove the “hold” on the contract of Patriot High School Principal, Michael Bishop. That seems like a reasonable outcome to us. Other than what we read in the newspapers and on some Facebook pages of Bishop supporters, we don’t know anything
