“If I was stalked, so be it.” – Richard Blumenthal, political opponent of Linda McMahon
“Then it got to the point where I started getting followed…. I think they were Fairfax people for the WWF.” – Tom Cole, whistleblower of the pedophile scandal in Linda McMahon’s World Wrestling Entertainment
To the extent that Connecticut’s Democratic Senate candidate, Richard Blumenthal, has lied about his acceptance of political action committee donations, then I’m all for calling him on it.
The Linda McMahon campaign has released what Hartford Courant columnist/blogger Rick Green described as a “brutal” video of Blumenthal attending a recent convention of a trade association of trial lawyers in Vancouver, Canada. For those of us familiar with McMahon family history, this also calls to mind Linda and Vince’s sources and methods.
In Tom Cole’s interview with the journal Wrestling Perspective about how WWE’s predecessor company fired him for resisting the sexual harassment of pedophiles supervising him, then settled his lawsuit and rehired him, then re-fired him, Cole recalls getting tailed by people whom, he concluded, were agents for the Fairfax Group private investigation firm.
On its website, Fairfax describes its “long history of recognized leadership in risk mitigation.” From the beginning, “Fairfax was recognized as the ‘go to’ firm for particularly sensitive and complex investigative, security and crisis management problems.”
