Click here to read the Charlotte Observer's report. Montgomery has come under fire for seeking a job with the developer of Langtree at the Lake while the company had business before the town. There were also "embarrassing revelations that he had used the town e-mail system to exchange intimate e-mails with a woman who was not his wife," DavidsonNews.net reports.
