Resignation my foot! Vita Alto scurried away from City Hall like the rat she is because she knew she would be impeached otherwise. I’m not sad to see her go. It’s time for someone with fresh, relevant ideas to guide our town. I hope you will stand with me in supporting Tori Kimura for Local Representative!

I was shocked and saddened at the resignation of Vita Alto. Vita has been my mentor for many years. I would caution anyone who wants to hurl insults at Vita. Though her records may have been subpoenaed, no charges have been pressed against her. In this land, everyone is still presumed innocent until proven guilty.

I applaud Nick Alto for his relentless dedication to his wife. I hope the men of Sunset Valley will follow his shining example.

I was disappointed that this newspaper spent so much time covering the Alto scandal, that it failed to cover the Llamas’ upset of the Dire Chinchillas last week. The Dire Chinchillas had a perfect record until our team trounced them with a score of 20 – 3. Please remember that there are other newsworthy items besides politics.

July 2000-The party at the Alto mansion last Sunday was supposed to be a political gala celebrating the successful relaunch of the Le Petit Shark Pool Center. Given Vita Alto’s recent scandal and resignation, she opted to have a pool party for her closest friends and loyal supporters instead.
The party wasn’t just for show. Vita personally greeted her guests and engaged them in conversation.
One guest in particular caught our attention.
Holly Alto’s beau from the festival was there, and it is clear these two have been enjoying more than just a friendly game of horse shoes!
July 2000–Like her father, Holly Alto is not letting her mother’s political troubles keep her at home. The young Alto was spotted chatting up an unidentified young man at the Summer Festival. Holly Alto seems to be proof that love conquers all.
July 2000—Nick Alto is not going to let a political scandal keep him down. He was spotted at Mick Master’s last night bringing the house down with a rendition of “New Glitz.” It also appears that retiring from the pressure cooker of Goth Industries agrees with Nick. We haven’t seen him this trim in years.
July 2000--It’s the scandal of the year! Local Representative Vita Alto has resigned over allegations that she stole money from the Community Improvement Fund. The Sunset Valley City Treasurer reported that 300,000 Simoleons of the Le Petit Shark Pool Center Fund went missing last month. Mrs. Alto’s bank records were subpoenaed last week, and someone close to the investigation revealed that Mrs. Alto received an anonymous donation last month in the same amount.
Yesterday morning, Mrs. Alto tendered her resignation at City Hall. Our reporters tried to get a statement from her, but she refused to comment. Her husband, Nick Alto, however, did agree to speak with us. “These allegations against my wife are outrageous. Vita Alto has faithfully served the Sunset Valley community for nearly two decades. Clearly, someone is jealous of her and fabricated this story.”
A confidant of the Alto family said that Mrs. Alto was devastated and could barely pull herself out of bed. Mr. Alto denied this claim. “That is utterly preposterous. Vita Alto fears no one. Vita Alto cowers to no one. She is simply resting and re-grouping.”
When asked if his recent resignation from Goth Industries had anything to do with the allegations against his wife, Mr. Alto responded, “Certainly not! I will always have fond memories of my tenure at Goth Industries, but it is time for me to move on to other endeavors.” Mr. Alto also made it clear that he is standing by his woman. “I have been and will continue to be by my wife’s side every step of the way. Vita Alto will return to the political arena, and she will be the leader of the free world one day. Mark my words.”
