New information has surfaced regarding Laurie David’s “Oops I Did It Again” wetlands violation at her Martha’s Vineyard manse. As we previously wrote, the environmental activist was cited again for violating the state Wetlands Protection Act while building a tennis court. Our theory that David probably wasn’t aware of the violation turned out to be correct — as the contractor in charge of the construction took the blame. “She’s obviously a very busy person and she trusted the contractor,” said David’s contractor Bart Thorpe told the Martha’s Vineyard Gazette. “And I inadvertently made a mistake. It’s something she had no knowledge of and had nothing to do with, and it’s a minor thing.”

That “minor thing” ended up costing David $900 in fines — $300/day until a restoration plan was submitted. In the latest incident, boards and rocks were laid over wetlands to create a road enabling heavy equipment to get to the site of the tennis court.

Said Jacqueline Mendez-Diez, a neighbor of David’s, “This latest infraction came to light when a former David employee reported the violations to the town’s Conservation Officer. Otherwise, because it is such a secluded area, no one would know about it. Historically, Laurie David’s violations of the WPA have come to light in precisely this manner of a former employee finally coming forward to report illegal wetlands abuses.”
