Yesterday came word from the Federal Bureau of Investigation that they are ramping up their anti-public corruption efforts in Northern Virginia. The FBI doesn’t just do such things for no reason or on a whim and they certainly do not go public with such announcements unless they are building towards something big. For the past two years or so, there have been whispers and rumors about multiple FBI investigations concerning activities in Prince William County. This would seem to give credence to those accounts.
Today, Greg Letiecq at BVBL throws gasoline on the fire by listing, with supporting references, a number of areas ripe for the FBI’s Northern Virginia Public Corruption unit to investigate. Just how bad is it? Well, seven out of the eight county supervisors in Prince William County are mentioned to varying degrees with only freshman supervisor Pete Candland not tainted in some shape or form. The most troubling aspect is that he only covers the tip of the iceberg with regard to the multitude of scandals involving the misuse of taxpayer and campaign funds.
Buckle your seat belts ladies and gentlemen. It appears that we are heading for some strong turbulence.
