Report: Ervin Strikes Back, Seeks Legal Action Against Political Attack Website
Montgomery County Councilwoman Valerie Ervin plans to take legal action against www.valunmasked.com, The Washington Examiner reported.
Ervin (D-Dist. 5), of Silver Spring, plans to pursue legal action against the website, www.valunmasked.com, which attacks the councilwoman for her various political relationships.
The website says: "What you see is not what you get. Valerie's political career is all about saying one thing and doing another. Pretending to support people only to abandon them for personal gain."
"This is not the kind of thing we see [in Montgomery County]," Ervin said, according to the report. "We're better than that, and we're going to show everybody that we're going to stop these kind of attacks from happening."
Ervin has received support from County Executive Isiah Leggett (D) and fellow Councilwoman Nancy Navarro (D-Dist. 4), of Silver Spring, who have called the attacks "baseless and slanderous," according to the report.
