These comments are total nonsense. The RTC is clueless. Everything that was accomplished was totally sourced from Burke. Everything! The RTC goons couldn't lead a gradeschooler across the street without getting them all killed. For Chrissakes, Crnic ran both campaigns too..Those idiots will go down nin flames without him.
Crnic is swirling. He has gone through hyper-spin to swirl, and both he and Burken are on their way down the proverbial drain.

Burke has had two things on his mind these past two years. 1. The woman he tossed him over. 2. How to carry out political vendettas against people who crossed him in some way.

The man is a lunatic, and his handlers are even more nutts.

Bye, Bye!

<quoted text>I know both people, and the story. What is said in the affidavit is exactly true - Burke did all of those things.
I know the woman, and Burke took advantage of her in a fragile state, having just gotten divorced from a long marriage. She did nothing to Burke except to come to her senses and move on.
Burke didn't like that she told him know, and somehow thought his abusive stalking was somehow going to endear her to come back to him because he was in love.
I know this woman and fragile is one word that doesn't come to mind when her name is mentioned.

Burke is an arrogant, lying bully who finally went too far. Have you people not witnessed his nasty temper in meetings, interviews, TV shows? Are you really surprised he was harassing this woman when he didn't get his way. Are you shocked that he lied about the stalking, the cell phone, etc. Can somebody please confirm with proof that he never went to Vietnam? He likes to tell people he was shot twice there, but people who have known him his whole life say he never left the country. I'd like to see how the veterans of Bethel react when this BIG lie is finally revealed. He gets what he deserves. If he believes in God the way he says he does he will rot in hell for what he's put his wife through.

this smells more and more like a politcal stunt...no crime exists in the afidavit. This will get thrown out and the RTC will have destroyed the best First Selectman in Bethel...why Nick? I hope you all enjoy your loss in Nov if burke loses the primary becuase of this...Thanks for nothing.
You guys are pigs for putting this man through this. You ought to be ashamed.
All this over an affair. Nick I am very disapointed in you.
What grade are you in 1st? If no crime existed Bob never would hav ehad his mug shot taken.

Now it’s up to a judge or jury to decide if Bob is guilty. As of right now the laws of this country say he is not. Remember innocent until proven guilty.

He admits to cheating on his wife for a year.
He failed to tell the whole truth when listing his phone numbers on May 5th, omitting at least one other home phone number.

The intimate relations with a woman who was not his wife should be held by the public as a worse moral failure than many of the other allegations.

Then he claims on public TV that the press "harassed" his wife simply because they knocked on his home door while exercising their 1st amendment rights to be journalists.

Convicted or not, criminal or not, do not call the man "innocent". That's a Crnician stretch at best.

She & her children are all victims.

I have to say he is innocent, if I were to say he is guilty, I could never get picked as a juror.

My main response was to the delusional poster that said no crime was committed. This poster must also think it's okay to run red traffic signals, drive drunk, and so on.
But in light of the overwhelming evidence, in this country this scum bag is innocent until he sits at the defense table with his tail between his legs and listens to witness after witness dispute his claims and I get to go back in the jury room and convince 11 other people that this man is a cheater, a liar, and accord to the state statue that he is charged with is guilty beyond any reasonable doubt.
Anyone that thinks Bob is innocent must have celebrated with OJ Simpson trial one.
Speaking of which, the civil case from this will be an easy victory for the plaintiff.
