Steamboat Springs City Councilwoman Heather Sloop is accusing the former council president of intimidation because of an email he sent questioning her education background.

Sloop says Walter Magill is trying to silence her on a housing proposal, in which both have a financial interest.

Steamboat Springs Today has the whole bizarre story here.

Magill questions her representation as an engineer and threatened to out her. While Sloop says she has a degree. What appears to be in question is whether she is licensed.

Sloop eventually recused herself from a vote because of her financial interest in the project.
