Just after I pressed send on the last Rockville post a few minutes ago, I was forwarded a letter from Don Hadley, the alleged “business partner” of Mayor Newton’s husband. From that letter, it appears that the entire claim of Hadley’s relationship to Fred Newton was that Hadley was the settlement attorney for the real estate transaction back in 2010. If that’s true, then the entire house of cards comes tumbling down and there is truly nothing here. Any blogger worth anything who printed that allegation should be ashamed of himself.
Oh, right. Never mind.
This is rapidly turning from an ugly political smear into a potential libel suit. From the looks of it, a pretty damn good one, too. Judge accordingly.
