P*ss-poor journalism. It’s incredibly misleading (no pun intended) when the lead infers he was breaking the rules and presumably was convicted of a drug felony. Only 10 paragraphs in do you find out he got a DAG which dismissed the charges. And not until paragraph 16 do we get to the conflict-of-interest issue. Not just sloppy but intentionally sensationalizing the story is journalistic malpractice by Kevin Dayton.
