You might have heard that Judge Mike Maggio — whose wholly awful use of a pseudonymous message board was detailed here yesterday — was going to make a statement today at 4pm.
Rumor was that he would withdraw from the race. Which, you know, would be the type of thing that you would expect someone who wasn’t a terrible person to do.
Instead, moments ago, we received this:
…aaaaand, that’s it.
Well, sorta. We also received this from Clint Reed, who is a partner at Impact Management, Maggio’s now-former campaign consultants:
Our firm will no longer be representing Judge Maggio moving forward. Any future press inquiries should be directed to Judge Maggio.
I have an inquiry in to the JDDC about whether Maggio is actually aware of a complaint. Regardless, however, do not lose sight of how terrible of a person he continues to be by failing to address ANY of the actual allegations. Even if he isn’t aware of a JDDC complaint, he is certainly aware of the stuff written here at at Arkansas Blog. He chose to ignore that.
