-- A story on a questionnaire sent to Linda McMahon a year ago when she was nominated for the school board in Connecticut is available here. She answered "No" to the following questions:

1) Have you been publicly identified, in person, or by virtue or an organizational association, with a particularly controversial national, state or local issue?
2) Have you submitted oral or written views to any governmental authority or the news media on any particular controversial issue other than in an official government capacity?
3) Have you ever written any books or articles?
4) Have you ever had any association with a person or group or business venture which could be used, even unfairly, to impugn or question your character and qualifications for the requested appointment?
5) Is there anything in the past involving you or any member of you immediate family which would be a source of embarrassment if it were to become public knowledge?

She included a letter from her attorney to explain that, for the last 2 questions, there was an investigation and trial related to Titan Sports in the early 90s, but she was never investigated or charged. Also of note is that Linda wrote articles for WWE Magazine under the pseudonym Linda Kelly. She stated that she thought the question applied to articles written outside WWE, and that the articles she wrote were about WWE and its storylines.
