This decision will ultimately backfire on Holden and the alleged victim. It is rumored that many reporters will be in attendance to ask the alleged victim some difficult questions about the alleged crime and the circumstances surrounding that Sunday afternoon and evening. Even more tantalizing is the rumor that "close" family members and "acquaintances" are eagerly awaiting their chance to paint a different picture of the alleged victim by sharing their stories of past "indiscretions" and similar "accusations" that may drastically sway public opinion.
This invitation by Holden and the Juniper Park Civic Association also raises questions about Holden's and other JPCA executive board members' involvement in the case. People have speculated for months that Holden's blind hatred for Gallagher caused him to solicit the help of a con artist to set the former councilman up for a fall. It also makes it clear that the alleged victim is preparing her civil case and getting ready for a payday.
We hope someone takes a picture of Holden's face as the victim tells her story. Once again, let us see the sick and perverse pleasure he gets from other people's misery.
