Simpson Lawsuit Update

By Loudoun Insider

Simons Chase, the founder of Performance Beverage Group, manufacturer of Nine Iron sports drink, filed a pro se lawsuit against Loudoun Sheriff Steve Simpson recently. A hearing to dismiss the lawsuit occurred this past week, and as Simpson stated in print, he was expecting it to be dismissed.  But it wasn’t.  Chase, residing in California, did not receive timely notice of the hearing and was granted a 21 day extension.  So much for the big press release they probably had planned – “frivolous lawsuit against our esteemed Sheriff dismissed!” would have been the gist of it.

That lawsuit is not his biggest worry.  Another large investor in the company is represented by a big name law firm and is very close to filing a detailed suit against Simpson.  I’ve seen some of the legal correspondence from this investor’s lawyers and they are going to put the screws to Simpson and his compatriots on the PBG board for various transgressions.  I am told this lawsuit should be filed early this week.  There is also one more investor who is considering putting together a suit of his own, so that would make three lawsuits against the sitting Sheriff of Loudoun County for shady business dealings.

    It’s really amazing how the LCRC bloggers love this topic, isn’t it???

  • Wolverine says:

    LI, my friend, did you ever consider the possibility that, since you have come out in opposition to so many of their own nominees, these LCRC bloggers just might not want to be a part of your chorus on anything anymore?

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    Absolutely, Wolverine, that’s exactly what is happening, and it is petty in the extreme. I’m sure the Cabal That Couldn’t got together and worked out this bit of “strategy” because they have nearly all threatened the Chapman campaign with “you better stay away from LI or he’ll bring you down”.

    I can hear them now – “Let’s not say anything bad about Speakman or Simpson just to teach those bastards a lesson that they can’t mess with us! Everything needs to go through us! If you don’t hire and listen to us we will destroy you! If LI is for him we must all be against him to show how damaging having LI advocate for you is! Maybe then people will stop reading his stuff and read ours!”

    Or something very similar. It’s a petty vindictive playbook. Let’s not advocate for the best Sheriff candidate in the race who just happens to be our party’s rightful nominee because non-LCRC partisans like the guy. Between that and the fact that some of these people have business relationships with Simpson and his big backers and you see why this will be closer than it should be. It has very little to do with right and wrong and an awful lot to do with peoples’ egos and desire to influence peddle. The GOBGN is apoplectic at the possibility that the see No Evil Hear No Evil trained monkeys in Simpson and Plowman may go down.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    And once again let me reiterate that I have no official role with the Chapman campaign. These people are ticked at Chapman for various petty reasons, including the fact that I like Chapman and have supported him from the beginning as clearly the most qualified candidate to take over and restore respectability and clear ethics and morals to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office. Anyone who takes the time to dig into the candidates’ backgrounds can easily reach the same conclusion. To fight him just because of who likes him and whose ass he didn’t kiss is petty in the extreme, but that explains the motivations of the Chapman Haters.

  • Wolverine says:

    I disagree, LI. If I had to take a guess (and it is only the guess of a non-party person at this distance), I would say that most of the LCRC people are likely supporting Mike Chapman organizationally just as they do the rest of their candidates. But they also have a large slate of other candidates who need support, most of whom represent potential control of the BOS and the state legislature in very contentious political times. I think that punching into this particular blog and seeing some of those other candidates taken to the woodshed on an almost daily basis is probably putting them off of TC . Interspersed with the tirades against Simpson, all they see are negatives against Plowman, Higgins, Clarke, Black, Ramadan, Buona, Reid, Delgaudio, Volpe, Phillips — shoot, almost half their candidates who are in contested races. You actually think that, under such circumstances, they are going to be inclined to salute and sing on command for LI over one single candidate? Constantly referring to them as “Chapman haters” doesn’t help much either, in my opinion.

    Don’t get me wrong here. You have every right to come out for and against whomever you prefer. And I don’t expect you to stop that. But the LCRC people also have the right to abstain from joining in your particular game if they don’t like the larger sum of what they see here. Nor, I imagine, do they like to be met with derision if they happen to disagree with the host or his like-minded friends. Their choice. Human nature, my friend.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    I don’t expect them to jump on any bandwagon of mine, but their near uniform refusal to criticize Simpson and Speakman on any forum in spite of clear reasons to do so is ridiulous, especially when their party’s candidate is opposing those two. It’s human nature at it worst.

  • Past Tense says:

    Sheriff Simpson is a very good man and a great Sheriff. The LI too often seeks the very bottom of public discourse, offering hypotheticals while criticizing people based on what has actually opccurred or been documented.

    This is not discourse or even helpful. Take a basic course in citizenship and learn how to be useful to society. We badly need constructive commentary and discussion. You know what I mean?

    Try looking upward out of the swamp. There is light and blue skies above.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    What a pathetic comment. Simpson is a disgrace as Sheriff, and these lawsuits go right to the heart of why that is so.

  • G.Stone says:

    Ding, Ding Ding we have a winner ! I could not have said it better my self, Mr. Wolve. Well done, the truth will set us free !

    LI please re-read the opening paragraph of Wolves last post. Then read it again and yet again. Try then to proceed from this point forward using his words as the basis of truth in this matter. He has done everyone involved a great service with his honesty and objective insight.
    If you choose to dismiss his take on this , then there is no one on the planet that can help you.

    Wolve, you are one smart dude.

  • Wolve is supposed to be on the outside looking in…but the dude actualy gets it. I’ve said all along, that LI and his SMALL crew here are actually hiding behind their endorsements of Chapman in order to lob grenades at every other republican in the county’s races. Thankfully, unlike a SMALL band of malcontents here, the smart folks are elsewhere.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – Stone is an angry asshole who remains ticked off that he has helped sink three Sheriff campaigns. Has Simpson promised you a job yet????

    BPm ranks right behind Stone in the angry asshole department. I am not hiding behind anything as you well know. Mike Chapman is the best candidate for Sheriff. period. There is nothing to hide behind. The only people that remain hiding are those LCRC malcontents who are trashing Chapman at every turn.

    I need no crew to take on angry bullies like Stone and BPM.

  • BlackOut says:

    I’ve come to the conclusion the gene pool for candidates in Loudoun is way to small.

    It gets worse when party kool-aid drinkers are required to support those at the bottom of the pool.

  • G.Stone says:

    “I need no crew to take on angry bullies like Stone and BPM.”

    But you do need a crew to help you comprehend this better. Might I suggest you re-read Wolves post, he spelled it out for you. This really is not that complicated.

    Sink three sheriffs campaigns ? When are you going to ask me where I buried Hoffa ?

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    I need no help to comprehend anything Stone. I supported Chapman all along. You went from Davis to Dickerson to Speakman and lost every time, all while crowing that Chapman was going down because of this or that reason, as well as calling Chapman an “arrogrant asshole” because he didn’t fire “that skinny bitch” and hire your pals. You’re the perfect example of the petty vindictive behavior I find so offensive in this Sheriff race. it really isn’t that complicated – please re-read again if you’re having a hard time getting this through your hard head.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    And I’ll keep on waiting for you, Mr. Republican, to criticize either Simpson or Speakman fro being sore loser Republicans. Although I guess you find a certain sympatico comraderie there with them, so I guess I’ll never see you take it to them like you like to take it to Chapman.

  • G.Stone says:

    The only things I have said about Chapman have been positive. Set your personal issues aside and deal with the facts as they exist.

    I can’t help your anger issues. I can’t keep you from making an ass of yourself in public, as you did the other evening in Ashburn. I can no longer spend, or should I say waste any more time on you. You have way to many personal issues, to many demons in one head for anyone other than a professional to deal with.

    Opine all you want , just get some help.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    Now that is an outright lie, Stone, so the only issues we have here that someone needs to deal with are yours. Anyone who reads this site sees who has the real anger management issues. Someone from your little gang said I needed to man up so I stood up to you and your other self professed tough guy pal, just like I have always done with bullies. Your bark is worse than your bite.

  • BlackOut says:

    I just spit out my coffee at this one:

    “The only things I have said about Chapman have been positive. ”

    Which Chapman are you talking about there Stoner?

  • Sensible says:

    It is hard to inspire people to support and work for a candidate when their campaign staff and close supporters spend their time bashing good republicans, behind their backs and on blogs. This is the problem with the Green Team, it appears the color fits since Chapman has surrounded himself with jealous, petty people. Many people will hold their nose and vote for Chapman, but his lousy fundraising and small team of volunteers is indicative of a campaign that has never been about the candidate and his qualifications, but about ruining people’s reputations and personal advancement, all with the help of Loudoun Insider. The Green Team has no one but themselves to blame for the lack of enthusiasm for their candidate.

    All of this is wasted energy, and there are many people in Loudoun that want the entire Green Team to dissappear before 2012 so that the focus can return to the issues facing our country, and not the issues facing those that not only don’t get it, but don’t care to make advances in the conservative cause.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    The bashing started with the Chapman Haters, Sensible, and still continues to this day, and the real jealous petty people are those who had fits when Chapman chose to run his campaign without listening to these petty jealous people who didn’t and won;t get the jobs they think they deserve.

    The only agenda that should matter in this race is getting a respectable Sheriff installed at LCSO. Not the crooked incumbent and not the pervy challenger. Mike Chapman is the only answer. You Chapman Haters need to get over your obsession and support your party’s nominee. There is plenty of enthusiasm for Mike Chapman across the county, just not with the GOBGN that is scared to death of a new Sheriff in town who won;t help them get their buddies out of trouble.

  • G.Stone says:

    “Someone from your little gang said I needed to man up ”

    Then quit running your mouth and do it. So far all you have dome is embarrass yourself. I am actually begging to pity you. Stop while you are ahead or produce. You are a motor mouth, all show and no go. Again, pity.

  • G.Stone says:

    I am going to start looking for those photos of you being so brave. You know the ones I am talking about don’t you ? The ones that show you backed against a wall, asking for passerbys to hang around and be a witness to some event that only happens in your mind. You are pitiful.

    I have no interest in helping you create some goofy fantasy. If I was inclined to show you some bite , I would subcontract the task out to a couple of Girl Scouts, then maybe it would fair.

    I wish I had a tape recorder so I could play back to you all the times you have asked some by- stander or bar tender to call the sheriiff, to come save you. That is always the first thing out of your mouth when you get into a heated argument with anyone. You are a paranoid guy with issues. I do wish one of your friends would sit you down and convince you you need help.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    See folks, this is why the LCRC is like high school on steroids. Disagree with those who think they rule the roost and they threaten to beat you up.

    I just happened to be standing against the wall, Stone, I didn’t run away from you because you don’t scare me one bit. You’re an obnoxious punk. Your photographer pal was there at the last back and forth – maybe he got more photos when it wasn’t me with my back up against a wall, since that seems to be your barometer of toughness.

    The Sheriff comment was for dramatic effect, I had a cell phone and could have called myself if I was so scared of you. Although it may have been useful to complete your police record. I didn’t run anywhere – I was standing there as you left. You’re a two bit bully, Stone. It’s no wonder you can’t get a real law enforcement job.

  • G.Stone says:

    Hey Mr. Fantasy, NO ONE wants to beat you up. NO ONE cares enough. Anyway, who wants to shoot fish in a barrel ?

    I am beginning to think you really don’t get it. You are not just jerking around, you really don’t get it.

    Now take a chill pill, or I will send those girlscouts.

  • Loudoun Insider says:

    What a tool.

    So what do you think of those pledge breakers Simpson and Speakman?
