I am not surprised by this recent development. It was just a matter of time before the Town of Urbanna administrative office would become involved in Filling's crime wave. The clerk needs to be placed on administative leave TODAY. If you are keeping score we now have a sheriff, former mayor/town administrator/treasurer/zoning administrator and town clerk under investagation or arrested and awaiting trial.

This is better than fiction.

Among all the other wrongful acts occuring in this town, why was Fillings driving around in a police car in the town acting in the capacity of a town sergeant and he was not law enforcement certified and displaying police on side of the vehicle? That is another violation of the law that State Police should investigate.

Who does Mayor Richwine and the town council think they are kidding? In a recent statement both the council and mayor offered support for Ms. Daniel. Small town small minds. She is as guilty as Filling.

The State Police should have the IRS audit him. A lot of cash has gone through his sticky fingers.

Concern, the SSentinel article about the Town Council's support for the clerk is just as informative in what it doesn't say. The Council is deafening in their silence about indicted administrator Lewis Filling. If they didn't think he did anything, the would have come out and said so, just like they did for the clerk. Obviously they knew of his actions and were complicit. Filling was not the only one in Urbanna govt to have extorted money and solicited bribes from the local populace.

Judge Joe... once Filling is in jail, we can just send a letter to another inmate telling them Filling was cop. They'll take good care of him then.

An honest man (not Filling) is in jail over this incident. He brought the attention to the FBI and was then arrested by Middlesex county. This man was wrongly arrested on a separate charge but the influence was his involvement in grabbing higher attention to the Middlesex County office. Your community peer cared about you, in respect, please care about him.
keep investigating

keep investigating. Instead of investigating pennies and peanuts. They need to investigate the Social Service dept. that Bracke ran with his goons that still work there and review ALL the records if they are not all of a sudden lost. Look at the FUNDS and RECORDS. Look at who was involved in children of unfounded cases that the parents never got their children returned. Look WHO was the lawyer who helped Bracke adopt boys and who Bracke helped get foster children in unfounded cases. Its bigger than you think. I here one big christian lawyer closed down and left town abruptly and I hear he has many adopted foster care children from Bracke of unfounded cases, SEE how that works, I scratch your back and you scratch mine .
NO more corruption

Git "R" Done say the people .Hell, go look at Arthur Bracke's Office workers who knew he was a fraud. Look at the records of fraud and conflicts of interests in many cases of children being taken under false alligations whom never were returned home or to relatives. Look at one court case were Andrea and her friend Pam took a families baby under conflict of interest were the parents were never charged it was unfounded. In this case the judge against the parents in Gloucester, became the lawyer for the foster care provider,then as you look further on DMitchell and Dunn relatives to the lawyer of social services showed up for the foster care provider Pam another conflict of interest and the judges knew it as well as a GAL who knew it. So it all was fraud. People of this county have asked for an outside internal investigation on these people and this county of criminals. There was an article in the Glo-quips that said Where are all the children of Middlesex County. Who are the criminals that allowed Arthur Bracke to raise boys in a dump of a home? Who is responsible for not approving his home? Go to and read Wes Fagers pages. Are these people going to held accountable also in this county of corruption.
Dig Deeper

Dig Deeper if you can find any cases that the records were convienently lost of children in this county and surrounding counties and look at the lawyer that gave Arthur his boys as well as who Arthur gave this lawyer children. We also want to know were all these children are today? There are more unfounded cases than founded cases and the children were never returned home or with relatives.....
