This is not hearsay...Brian himself said that he whittled on his arms to get Heather to say she loved him, that it wasn't a serious attempt at suicide, and that he had mosquito bites that were worse than his cuts.
So does that make it more acceptable to you as an OK way for a county commissioner to act? In my book, it still makes him a dangerous person to have in a political office who makes important decisions for an entire county. He's a volcano waiting to blow. He needs to resign and get professional help.
