If you thought there were problems at the county level of government in Prince William County, look at what happens when you drill down even further into local government.
Potomac Local and the Gainesville Times have covered somewhat extensively the actions involving some Town of Haymarket officials in Prince William County. In censuring Councilman Jay Tobias, these few sanctimonious hypocrites on the Town Council asserted at various times that the censure and fine was the result of a long history of unspecified bad behavior, not simply a single “reprehensible” alcohol-related event on Haymarket Day, while at other times stating that it was because of his alcohol consumption in relation to that one event.
Why do I say that these individuals are sanctimonious hypocrites? You know what they say about people who live in glass houses or more accurately in today’s day and age, people who have Facebook pages. Just look at what one can find on the pages belonging to a town councilwoman and the mayor’s wife.
In the “3 drunks in a tub” photograph below, the middle individual is Councilwoman Katherine Harnest and the one on the right is Councilwoman Mary Lou Scarbrough, the two who made the most dramatic statements in open session about behavior.

INDEED! I believe the term you are looking for right now is, “BUSTED!”
The photo below speaks for itself, although I would note that the woman on the right is Haymarket Mayor David Leake’s wife who reportedly started this whole chain of events with an alleged public incident back in August.
This doesn’t even touch on the FOIA request and open meeting violations admitted by the fourth hypocrite, Councilman Steven Aitken that are openly discussed in the Gainesville Times article.
It certainly appears that the home building industry is experiencing a boom in the construction of glass houses in western Prince William these days.
