Lynching him is stupid. He claimed VT before numerous people claimed VT. If he was scum he wouldn't have made that claim for fear of being counterclaimed. Had it done it afterwords it wouldn't mean anything but the timing of his claim in the QT makes me almost 100% sure that he isn't lying about this.
This is the post I said was stupid, and I am clearly not wrong. CP isn't town because he claimed VT despite possibly getting counterclaimed. He is town because he claimed VT first and has still kept you alive thus pretty much stopping himself from being able to use his role all game. Of course this could be a ploy, but would be a pretty gutsy move to do it first and unprovoked.
