Back to Manassas Park

Wednesday, February 13th, 2008

BVBL has a new post on the weird Keven Brendel angle of the Rack ‘n’ Roll pool hall public corruption case. BVBL managed to get hold of some of the photos of nude women the vice mayor snapped in David Ruttenberg’s bar that the city then tried to use to prove Ruttenberg was promoting lewd behavior. The town’s been rather schizophrenic about the photos, alternately admitting they exist, denying they exist, or insisting they exist, depending on the context.

Why this is isn’t a bigger story is beyond me.

I actually talked with Ruttenberg tonight. The city is still trying to set him up. After all of this. I’ll have a post about their latest weak attempt at a frame-up in a couple of weeks. The good news is that Ruttenberg has finally managed to sell his bar. He says once his lawsuit is over, he plans to move as far away from Virginia as possible, and try to start his life again. Can’t say that I blame him.

    Do you know if anyone’s approached Washington City Paper about this?

    I don’t know how some people can sleep at night. Why these people aren’t getting voted out, etc. The neighbors gotta know that this is just what’s occupying their time now, next it’ll be emminent domain to get expand someone elses garden because they need it more and have been looking at it for 10 years.

    I just wandered into this, but why would you link to a site ( that demands a user name and password, and displays a 401 when not supplied?

    Just state what they say – the link is useless.

    The BVBL link seems to be fixed now.

    Isn’t this story due for an update?
