The nasty – in so many ways – ended public feud on Monday after the results of the test for Bridgeport City Councilman Ernest Newton and the board of education member Maria Pereira were revealed. It turns out that both legislators tested negative for 10 substances – marijuana, cocaine, amphetamine, methamphetamine, opiates, oxycodone, PCP, barbiturates, benzodiazepine and methadone – according to the Connecticut Post.

The feud between Newton and Pereira began when they began attacking each other in the commentary field of a story emerging from the popular local site Only in Bridgeport.

“Remember to bring your meds,” Newton wrote earlier this month.

Pereira kicked back and said, “Ernie, I promise I continue to take all prescribed drugs. Make sure you take everything you need that may need to be swallowed, sniffed, inhaled or injected. “She later added:” Stop taking drugs … It kills the few remaining brain cells you have left. “

The terror of the Bridgeport Board member of Education hit Newton hard, as the local legislature had previously earned five years in prison on federal corruption charges and allowed to fight in the past with an abuse of cocaine abuse. Newton has since been released and a stint in rehab been a master of programs that help former criminals recover in society.

Pereira’s comments gave Newton the opportunity to strike back with a claim that Pereira was once placed in a psychiatric department of overdose medication – a claim she called “wild” and has denied.

“I’ll tell you, Ernie,” she wrote to Newton. “I will be happy to pay for both you and I to take a drug test with the understanding that the results, whatever they are, will be released to [Only in Bridgeport].”

“Name of time and place,” Newton replied. 19659005] Over the next two days, both Newton and Pereira went to a test setting institute to try their urine.

Despite both results coming back negatively, Newton did not let the subject fall – arguing on Monday that his results had been returned the same day, but Pereira had not and accused her to be dependent on prescription pills.

“I didn’t have anything to prove,” Newton said Monday to only in Bridgeport. “I’ve been clean. June 26, it will be 24 years.”

Pissing competition between the two seems to have scooped up a number of Bridgeport residents, who would like to see fewer accusations and more action from their officials.

“In fact, said a resident, according to The Washington Post,” it made you two of an infinite amount of jokes at the expense of the city [you] both claim to love. “
