So many opinions and yet not one single person knows the merits of this case, the facts of the allegations, or have any knowledge whatsoever as to why he entered into this plea. Shame on the nay sayers! People are sheep - they are so eager to jump on the media spin and take a ride at someone's expense. I'd love to hold the mirror up to a few more of the BOS and citizens of Alb. Co. Let it go.....move on to the next over-sensationalized, non-accurate news story!

Dumler said that he is "fully committed to the job."

But what about the citizens of the Scottsville district? Are you committed to having Dumler represent your interests? If not, please sign the petition and send a clear message that you do not want him there any more. Even if the petition doesn't legally force him off the BOS, it will send a reality check to him that he is not wanted or needed. He is so into himself, he cannot take a hint. You need to hit him over the head with a petition signed by 1000+ voters telling him to GO! Maybe then, and with the help of counseling, he will come to the realization that he is not God's gift to women, to the citizens of Scottsville, to Albemarle, and the world. He is a disgrace.

Me thinks the "good" supervisor knew the code and when more accusers came forward he read the writing on the wall and didn't want to take a chance on Paragraph B above.
You mean like the accuser who kept dating him for THREE MONTHS after the "assaults" began, and then waited SIX YEARS before saying anything about it? Good luck. The worst public defender in the commonwealth would have a field day with that one.

As the ONLY person in Virginia to have written a petition which has successfully removed an elected official, there is no basis for the petition, described in this story, to be heard by the Circuit Court and will be dismissed, without a whole lot of effort.

I know. I mean it's like not one single person has actually taken the time to read the applicable VA code for removing an elected official by petitioning a court. It's more or less entirely written for drug offenses......But that's not stopping the high horse crowd.....Nice to see them give you the thumbs down for pointing out the blatantly obvious though. lol.

He seems to enjoy the attention and relish the fact that he pled the charges down to a misdemeanor, so now can't be removed from office.
In applying for other priviledges in VA, you are automatically disqualified if you have been charged with a felony but pled down to a reduced misdemeanor charge. But I guess politicians don't need to play by the same rules as everyone else.
Really, name one "privilege" where this is so...and running for office isn't a privilege, it's a right...a right you LOSE when you're convicted of a felony.

You should learn what is a right v. what is a privilege here in Virginia.

He's been asked to resign, He's been voted out, I assume he draws a Albemarle Co. Paycheck, Fire his butt and get him out.
He wasn't "voted out", he was censured...learn the difference...and he's an elected official, he can't be "fired"...and in this case, he can't even be removed.

You just made the case for why so many women never report attacks. They don't want to be called horrible names, not the least of which is liar. I would be interested to know, how are you privy to the "assaults" and how long they continued? Did the woman tell you or did Mr. Dumler? It really doesn't matter. If she said no only once and he persisted, then he violated her right to control what happened to her body.
Hey Dumler

So..... i heard he met the victim at a SARA fundraiser. Is that right?

If you're reading this, Dumler, and we know narcissistic sexual predators like you cant resist hearing about themselves, please get the F out of our county. Scottsville

He was accused of sexual battery! He admitted to sexual battery and it has caused a scandal for the Scottsville District Voters. No one with this kind of morals should hold any kind of political office. He is a prime example of what is wrong in this country today. Morality has gone to hell in a hand basket and we keep standing by and letting these creeps get away with it. He brought this on himself and I agree with those who think that he should go.

They need to be treated the same way and the people need to start demanding that if you can't keep your private life and your political life separate, then you automatically resign. This should be appled to anything illegal,immoral, or not doing the job for which they were elected or abusing the job for which they were elected, and should go from local politics right on up to the president of the United States. But we the people have to demand it!!!

I recently found out about this story about Mr. Dumler. He really can't go on like this. People protesting have interrupted the Supervisor's meetings, and the Democratic Party's breakfast get together. He was supposed to speak there Saturday, but someone threatened him, so he didn't show. So I looked up news stories about him and he cancelled all his events in October and November too. He simply cannot do his job now. He really should resign. This is not good. I think that people protesting him staying on is the right thing to do now.

How did you find any of this out? Do you know anything about relationship abuse or the dynamics in dating relationships that allow abuse to continue within the relationship? Apparently, you don't or realize that you can use those dynamics to prey on women.

If I were one of the accusers, I would subpoena nbc 29 to find out who is posting this information. Since only two past victims came forward and the information here could be used to pinpoint which one it was- I would feel violated by this poster and pursue civil remedy for the cost of therapy which this person (who is obviously close to the case) aggravated.
