The Rich Lieberman scandal has grown again. Now, the Free Lance Star is complicit in the scandal. The Free Lance Star wrote an article that portrayed Spotsylvania County School Board candidate Rich Lieberman in a positive light despite his inappropriate behavior on social media. The Free Lance Star did not bother to report the details on Mr. Lieberman’s inappropriate behavior. The article, written by Adele Uphaus, is a prop up piece for Mr. Lieberman to try and salvage his campaign running for school board.
Since the Free Lance Star won’t report the details of Mr. Lieberman’s inappropriate behavior, we will provide you with the details we reported earlier. Before you read another sentence, we would like to warn you that reader discretion is advised. Some examples of Mr. Lieberman’s inappropriate social media statements are below:
- “I told every woman I got serious with if they don’t hit me, I won’t hit them. If they hit me, I hit back”
- “All women should be buck neeked, barefoot in the kitchen with a beer in arm’s reach at all times for her mans”
- “If she snorts drugs, I wonder how her s*ck swall** skills are???? Asking for a friend”
In summary, these statements talk about hitting women, degrading women, or discuss sexual acts. The Free Lance Star is complicit in accepting his behavior because they fail to report any details on the central issue of why Mr. Lieberman is apologizing. It is clear that Mr. Lieberman posts on social media are sexist, misogynistic, and degrading to women.
The Free Lance Star also makes a claim without evidence that “Lieberman’s posts on the Facebook page…….were circulated over the weekend by supporters of his opponent”. That is false information. If the Free Lance Star bothered to do any research, they would know that The Spotsy Wire was the first to report on the Rich Lieberman scandal back on July 25. Other social media outlets have posted similar stories since then. The inappropriate social media posts by Mr. Lieberman go as far back as 2009 and were on many different websites. They are all over the internet and it takes very little effort to find them.
