Wow, the behavior of the contractor is disgusting. Offering to pay $5000 to take down a bad review is really demonstrative of their guilt, not to mention that there's irrefutable evidence of the presence of lead. There is nothing worse than a business who mucks up a job, THEN bullies the customer with threats and extortions and lawsuits.
