My understanding this evening is that Mark Burkhalter is definitely out of the running. There’s a salacious rumor swirling about him that may have been his undoing. I hadn’t treated it as credible as I’d imagine something like that would be hard to keep a secret, especially for four years.
But lots of people are texting me and emailing me that it is all true. Who knows. One thing I do know — Burkhalter is damaged goods.
