By Monique Chartier | September 21, 2022 |

Jeann Lugo Should Consider Suing Bill Bartholomew for Defamation

By Monique Chartier | June 28, 2022 |

Justin Katz called it early.  Bill Bartholomew’s extremely clipped video of Jeann Lugo striking Jennifer Rourke at the State House melee Friday night is a serious disservice to the truth.

And there would be a corresponding impact on public…
