Jewish conspiracy at work in Brattleboro?

The papers cited here are overwhelmingly the usual suspects. So a name like the Brattleboro Reformer sticks in the memory.

The rag appeared here first (October 22 2003) in recognition of the principled stand of editor Kathryn Casa in publishing a letter alleging excessive Jewish influence over the town's affairs.

(The point was not the truth of the allegations, but the entitlement of the paper to give space to them.)

Now, the Rutland Herald reports (April 20), Casa is out.
Several sources familiar with the situation said Casa was given an hour to clean out her desk before being escorted out of the building.

The Herald story suggests that the grounds may have included sympathy for unionisation and a willingness to consider both sides in the Israel-Palestine conflict.

One to follow, I think.
