Examiner Takes on 31st District Senate Race – On Saturday, the Washington Examiner simultaneously published two very similar articles by the same reporter on the same subject. The articles take a critical look at the financial and backroom political support received by County Board member Barbara Favola in her campaign for the retiring Mary Margaret Whipple’s state Senate seat. In addition to rehashing an article first published by ARLnow.com, the Examiner quotes potential Favola rival Ben Tribbett as saying that unnamed Senate leaders are trying to ruin his technology consulting business to keep him out of the race.

    That’s completely illegal for them to be calling Tribbett’s clients in an effort to dissuade him from running.

    Hopefully that claim is thoroughly investigated.

      Which law says that? Not doubting you, just want details.

    Unfortunately, I don’t think it is illegal. Unethical, nefarious, corrupt and pathetic, yes. But not illegal.
