I Will Not Be Voting For Tiffany Edwards Hunt

I will just state that I will not be voting for Tiffany Edwards Hunt for many reasons.

The main reason is that she personally ran to my father-in-law complaining about something I had no control over in an attempt to ruin the relationship I have with him.  She also threatened to attempt to end my relationship with my wife by spreading other BS.

She has always thought of me as a competitor… I don’t know why.  When you resort to these type of tactics… it really shows how desperate you are to control things… even if it’s in the “Blog” world!
