Now here we are a couple of weeks before the election, and Democrat Paul Ebert has threatened to "appoint a special prosecuter" to look into a government mailer from an elected official advertising a government meeting where a public vote is expected. From the Journal Messenger:
Prince William Commonwealth's Attorney Paul Ebert has questions about a mailer Supervisor Chairman Corey A. Stewart sent out this week. "It doesn't smell good,"
Stop sniffing the glue then.
Corey gets it exactly right:
Stewart said Ebert, who is a Democrat, is politically motivated.
Stewart said he had questions that he would ask the U.S. Department of Justice.
"I'm going to ask whether or not it's lawful for the county prosecutor to try to intimidate an elected official for doing his official duties by using the threat of a prosecution," Stewart said. "I think that's disgusting."
I hate doing this, since I can't read what Greg wrote about this, so of course I can't ENDORSE his comments, but given his headline I imagine he's got a good statement, so against my better judgment, you can check out what he said in The Teapot Tempest.
