Rest of the story
I am writing in reference to an Aug. 5 article written by Matt Junker, " Pair seek Fayette commission seats ."
The article incorrectly stated I was arrested for harassing Sean Cavanagh. In fact, I was cited and sent a ticket in the mail. There is a difference. Junker correctly said that I was found guilty of harassing Sean Cavanagh. However, he failed to point out that I have not paid the fine, and never will.
Junker reported that I was arrested for disturbing a commissioner's meeting after expressing admiration for a Chinese butcher who slaughtered government officials there. I never expressed admiration for the butcher. I simply read an article out of Insight magazine during my public comment time, and said that it sounded like a plan to me. Most important, Junker failed to mention that I was found not guilty of all charges by a jury in January.
Junker failed to mention that in 1998 I was cited by then chief deputy sheriff of Fayette County, Mark Santore, for disorderly conduct for refusing to leave a commissioner's agenda meeting and was found not guilty of that offense as well.
I have met Mr. Junker and discussed things pertaining to county government with him often. I have always found him to be very professional. However, if he is going to report a story, he should tell the entire story.
