The Briley Files

Posted By on Wed, Oct 10, 2007 at 2:35 PM

Jeff Woods' top-notch reporting today on the travails of state Rep. Rob Briley and the Capitol Hill culture that contributed to his ultimate personal unraveling is already generating reaction as improbable as the sordid tale itself. One reader accuses the Scene of offering a too-sympathetic portrait of the lawmaker, whose relationship with a trial lawyer lobbyist while he served as chairman of the House Judiciary Committee has gone unreported elsewhere.

"If Ms. Littleton were a man and Rob Briley were a woman, this article would have never been written," the reader writes us. "...Poor Rob Briley. He became an alcoholic; he made a lot of personal mistakes and now the two of you want to blame someone else for all of it. Did Rob help you write this story for his political comeback?"
