The Potomac News has more, but it appears that Corey Stewart used Prince William tax dollars to send out a mailing from the Prince William Republican Party. This is no technical violation, misspending taxpayer dollars to promote political allies is one of the worst offenses possible from a public official.
Corey has a history of walking the line when it comes to ethics and it appears this time he may have stepped over it.
Corey's response, instead of explaining what happened is to attack Commonwealth's Attorney Paul Ebert:
"I'm going to ask [the U.S. Justice Department] whether or not it's lawful for the county prosecutor to try to intimidate an elected official for doing his official duties by using the threat of a prosecution," Stewart said. "I think that's disgusting ."
Official duties? Corey, if you think your "official" duties include sending out mailers from the Republican Party at taxpayer expense, you belong in the cold, dark jail cell Paul Ebert is about to put you in.
