    The headline doesn’t match the poorly written article. If there was a problem, the district attorney would have gotten involved. Did the PRESS take time to contact the DA or the town attorney? Who is this Schneir guy? Oh, a former employee of a fortune 500 company. Wow, I impressed.

    Also, most newspapers do not allow letters to the editors about candidates during the election period. Those comments should be paid advertisements.
