I have no arguments with Cassie per se and I have posted elsewhere that I believed that she had proven herself over the four years. My point was to use her as an example of some candidates/legacies are given something of a "pass" a la VK - VK was given a pass without having the proven track record of Cassie and only because of her mom. If VK has been anybody else, say Taylor for instance who repeatedly hedged the truth with Kelli. Taylor never would have made her way back into camp.
I agree as a four year vet she was as one of the judges said, "no doubt a DCC," I think even Judy thought it when she was asked to leave the room "I would have thought she had the support of the judges." (I also happen to think that Judy being asked to leave the room was staged for the show -- an attempt to not show bias -- Jay may have been going out on a limb by voicing his opinion.)
Further, as Cassie goes, it may be somewhat unreasonable to consider what she said or did as "tattling." I mean, seriously, what was she supposed to do - not talk to her mom?
