Clearly Peter Shumlin used political influence to leverage the deal. How many Vermonters could walk into the assessor's office and on their word have the value of some property dropped $140,000? The governor was granted the adjustment even as the property was up for delequent tax sale based on the the higher assessment! Can anyone honestly claim that PI was not a factor?

An al Qaeda terrorist stated in a recent online posting that U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens was killed by lethal injection after plans to kidnap him during the Sept. 11 attacks in Benghazi went bad.The veracity of the claim by Abdallah Dhu-al-Bajadin, who was identified by U.S. officials as a weapons expert for al Qaeda, could not be determined. However, U.S. officials have not dismissed the terrorist’s assertion.
(there's been that conspiracy theory going around that it was a sceme to have Stevens kidnapped and make Obama look good in 'rescuing' him

Interesting, in all the other stories, the majority of comments were quite negative regarding Shumlin's actions, but now - looks like his buddies are flying in to stick up for him. No matter how you spin it, even if he actually was doing a nice thing, the fact remains he called a Lister....said he was going to buy property...and to reduce it's tax rate - that same rate that buried Dodge.He used his position and it's crystal clear. The house may be messy, but I've seen worse, it's the mans home, looked solid to me, it's just a mess...you know, the guy has challenges people? Also, he completely slandered him in the press, telling the world Dodge did "despicable" things, as if that is relevant at all. Who does he think he is? Even Shumlin's friends must have cringed at that. Come on!

Really great job covering this story WCAX! The wolf is no longer at the door and some lawmakers are beginning to write legislation so that people like the Dodge family will have a better chance to hold onto their homestead. Shame on Shumlin!

Now that the "Guv" has overpaid the past due taxes, support that was in arrears and whatever else, he agrees to "back out" of the deal if he gets his money returned. Of course as CEO of the state you would think he would have known that property tax relief was available for this guy.
Very shrewd move. Disingenuous too.
Shameful conduct on the part of this man. If he wanted to help the guy out as he says he could have redirected him to the correct state agency to assist him with the property tax relief program, along with other not for profit organizations that assist people with financial recovery.
Of course this guy's family sounds just as "clean" in their dealings.
not my governor

"We don't know how many predators are out there that are going to look at this opportunity... You could take a look at what the Governor did -- no one else is stopped from doing the same thing," said Rep. Patti Komline (R-Dorset).

how does Mr.'despicable'(Shummy's term) Dodge feel about abortion, is he pro-death like sleazebag Shummy or does he have a heart?
Is Dodge pro-nuke or anti or ambivalent?
Pro-Constitution and ALL of the Bill of Rights etc. or just an actor like Shummy?
Maybe he could run for guvna
I mean, if he knows and cares about the dangers of nukedom AND cares about the preborn And about espesially following the oath to the State and fed Constitutions (as opposed to Shummy who's proved he doesn't) then I could vote for Dodge over yet another phony and NWO proponent like Bum Shumm.

I Shumm would Love to attend Bilderberg, Clinton did just B4 he became prez
