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.
Delegate Rich Anderson is widely known for his political cowardice, his breathtaking two-faced hypocrisy. It’s always most evident in election years, when you’ll see him at NAACP events or LGBT events, preaching solidarity with the goals of the organization, and then consistently voting against their legislative priorities in the House of Delegates.

The Prince William Muckraker has obtained documentary evidence exposing the involvement of Upstream Consulting principal, Mac Haddow, in the well-known forgery, fabrication and character assassination blog, the Sheriff of Nottingham.

Utah gets Evan McMullin and here in Prince William County we get Mac Haddow, Pete Candland and their cabal’s forgery and fabrication hate-blog the Sheriff of Nottingham. Did we get the short end of the stick!
Shortly after Corey Stewart was fired from the Trump campaign, the Muckraker wrote about the Trump campaign being infiltrated at the highest levels by the anti-Semitic, white nationalists of the Alt-Right movement, led by campaign CEO Stephen Bannon. Since that time we’ve noted several anti-Semitic dog-whistles that are symptoms in the Trump campaign of that
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
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. It’s a fair criticism, and in responding we’re going to take the opportunity to
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? It is “designed,” he wrote, “to set aside the personal attacks, and
