(Almost) Morning Read: Shumlin's East Montpelier Empire Grows

Posted By on Wed, Oct 10, 2012 at 12:11 PM

Remember Peter Hirschfeld? He's that guy from the New York Post, I mean, National Enquirer, I mean, Vermont Press Bureau, who broke a story last week about Gov. Peter Shumlin's land dealings in East Montpelier.

Well, Hirschfeld has an interesting follow-up in today's Rutland Herald and Barre-Montpelier Times Argus about another complex land deal the gov's engaged in next door to his East Montpelier cabin.

While the whole story is behind the Herald's and the T-A's paywall, you can read the first half of it for free here on the Press Bureau's blog. You could also drive on down to the store and buy yourself a copy, which you can't quite do with VTDigger.org.
