Responsibility was shared
How much more wasted space will the Shumlin-Dodge episode demand?
We know the Republicans want to smear the governor. What we do not know is anything of substance concerning Mr. Dodge and his family. Did he not tell them he was selling? If he did, they could have, in the interest of their long and strong family ties to the property, facilitated legal representation for their dad. Or did he not tell them because he didn’t care at all if they remained connected to the property or the money attached to it? Did they talk to him much? Did they dine together as a family. Were they concerned with his daily needs or his health care?
It appears to me that their concern became known only after the real estate transaction.
If Mr. Dodge gets his property back, will he include his family in his will?
If I am wrong in my analysis, I stand corrected. But as I see it now, the family is at least as responsible for the sale of the property as is Gov. Shumlin, and they should be analyzed and examined as deeply as he has been.
