I feel I should quote from Godfather III

What really strikes me about this, is her continuing to lie and to justify in this whole situation. She claims you never gave her a chance, but looking at the whole timeline, your first email was on Oct 28th. There seems to be replies and back and forth on the 29th, and Nov 2nd.
It's not until Nov 4th (a whole week later!) that you post on your LJ account, and then on the 6th that it really goes crazy with the mighty internets.
So all things considered. You DID give her a chance. A whole week's head-start on this. In fact, if she had replied to your last message, or at least worked with you on resolving the situation, then the rest of us wouldn't have been the wiser, and there might have been a December Issue of C(r)ooks source with another uncompensated blogger's work on it.

I don't think she's knowingly "lying", I think she's actually convinced herself what she's saying is an accurate representation of the truth. Can you see anyone putting themselves out there to look so stupid otherwise?

The thing that is pretty clear is that the woman is a narcissist ... clinically. She has a truth that lives outside of normal understanding, is completely defined by her and which she relentlessly goes back to. Indeed she probably doesn't think she is lying and even when the "truth" is in print in front of her she reads something very different and believes that we are all wrong and only she has a clear understanding. It was her downfall, but she won't learn anything from that and she will never truly apologize.

There's a thesis on Judith Griggs just waiting to be written by some sociology or psych student.

Someone found two previous (non-internet) incidents in the press where Ms. Griggs caused frustration and was considered unfair. Sorry I don't have those links here. But I share your appraisal that she's a narcissist, and they can be among the internet's most amusing/astonishing sources of lulz.
Yes, Judith apparently used to be a town planner in MA, and there are two articles online detailing the frustrations developers and others had in working with her. Some of the quotes from her seemed reminiscent of the things she said to Monica; i.e., "It's not my fault; I'm just dealing with a bunch of meanies."
I wasn't sure if she was the same Judith Gruggs, so I asked someone who lives in MA (and who had been following the Crooks Source story too), and he said the town in question is so small that odds are it doesn't have two loonies both named Judith Griggs.

Are these the articles in question?
LANCASTER -- Conservation Agent Judith Griggs called Conservation Commissioner Mark Melican "a son of a bitch," and then stormed out of a tense meeting Thursday night about a long-delayed development.
Ms. Griggs got involved in projects without first checking to see if she was covering ground already dealt with, Mr. Richard said.
"There was a lot of conversation going on that no one was really privy to except herself," he said, "and I think she was under the impression that she could do a lot more bargaining on behalf of the town than she can. She had all these things in the fire and nobody knew what was going on."
For the past two weeks, Ms. Griggs had failed to show up for work. Prior to that, she had reduced her work week to 27 hours, and last month accepted the job as conservation agent in Lancaster.
That bitch is crazy.
Nice research. Maybe it is the New England gloom making her crazy... but I like New England even in the dead of winter.
