The Dodge land deal is in limbo and now that purchase has journalists digging deeper into Governor Peter Shumlin's land holdings.
The governor bought Jerry Dodge's 16-acre East Montpelier property and a house for $58,000. Dodge and his family now claim it was a bad deal and the governor took advantage of a man incapable of understanding the complex land deal. The governor has since agreed to sell the land and house back to Dodge, but Dodge needs to come up with the money.
Paul Heintz of Seven Days looked at the governor's other real estate deals.
