Hunter Bounces Check for Brochures

At large council candidate Dee Hunter bounced a check for $2,087.51 back in August, and vendor VMW Printing Inc. is still looking to get paid for pumping out 20,000 brochures that touted Hunter's "New Energy, New Ideas."

In a Sept. 9 letter to Hunter, Hyattsville-based VMW reminds Hunter that he promised that he would not "stiff us on the bill."

"As of today's date, Sept. 9, 2008, we have yet to receive payment from you," the letter reads, going on to ask for a cashier's or bank certified check by Sept. 15.

That day has come and gone, prompting VMW, a union shop, to go public.

It's another problem for Hunter, a lawyer, already dogged by disciplinary charges from the Office of the Bar Counsel that he bilked clients in three cases. Hunter has said that the clients did not understand how settlements work.

In the case of the bounced check, Hunter said, "Our check bounced, and we're taking care of it."

"It's not like I'm trying to stiff the guy...We're taking care of it," he said, adding that he has two fundraisers planned for next week.

Campaign finance reports are due today.

Dee Hunter has even less of a chance than Carol Schwartz to win this at large election. He should drop out and endorse Patrick Mara who will make a great Councilmember.

Dee Hunter is a thief and a con man!
