Frank Jones Follies

By Greg L | 28 December 2006 | Rack & Roll Scandal | 6 Comments

Radley Balko has a hilarious story up regarding Manassas Park Mayor Frank Jones jumping out of the bushes in the early morning and trying to prevent a reporter from talking with Dave Ruttenberg. This is priceless:

Ruttenberg told me he walked over, introduced himself to the reporter, then attempted to get the reporter interested in what had happened to him and his bar. Here’s the weird thing: In the wee hours of the morning, out of nowhere, Manassas Park Mayor Frank Jones literally jumped out of the bushes, then put his arm around the reporter, guided him away from Ruttenberg, and told the reporter not to trust anything Ruttenberg said. Ruttenberg said it was one of the strangest things he’s ever seen, even given all the strange things he’s seen over the last several years.

Like a lot of stories David Ruttenberg has told me over the last year, this once seemed too weird to be true. So I called the reporter, a guy named Elliot Frances, who works for WJLA. And like every story David Ruttenberg has thus far told me over the last year, this one checked out exactly as he told it to me.

This is just unbelievable. How does a guy like this get elected mayor in Manassas Park??? And if he’s willing to go to such bizarre lengths to prevent the media from talking to Dave Ruttenberg, what the heck else has he been trying to cover up?

Stay tuned for more. There’s plenty, and some of it is on video…

    “How does a guy like this get elected mayor in Manassas Park???”

    People voted for him over Bill Treuting. That’s how I remember it happening. He was the Republican candidate.

    “People voted for him over Bill Treuting.”

    you sure they voted for him? oh, wait - its a Republican candidate(duh).

    i’ve been reading about this poor sod [ruttenburg] all over. try the State Attrny Gen.’s Office? this story, getting this kind of coverage even if its w.w.w., should get someone thinking in that office & if it doesn’t it wouldnt surprise me either. my 2 cents

    I just keep wondering why one man is being villified when this whole saga spans two different mayors. I find that suspicious…
