OK. Lets see if we can simplify the recent Brian Wishneff election scandal.
Brian Wishneff runs a campaign for Roanoke City Council based around the slogan "Integrity Matters".
Brian Wishneff runs smear ad against fellow candidate, but refuses to put his own name on the ad, thus violating State law.
Brian Wishneff blames the Roanoke Times for not explaining State law to him when he placed the ad.
Brian Wishneff may now sue the Times for it's coverage of HIS scandal.
To quote the article: "Brian Wishneff accused the newspaper of "trying to influence the election and trying to maim my character.""
No Brian, you took care of maiming your own character. And in doing so, lost your seat.
While it's probably wishful thinking to hope this guy is going to fade away into the background, thank God he is no longer on Council.
