Denis & Leventhal: Council must investigate

"This is a very searing and explosive report," says Montgomery County Council member Howard A. Denis (R-Bethesda/Potomac) about the Inspector General’s Seven Locks audit. "The council's mandate is clear. We have to gather the facts from all levels of government."

County Council President George L. Leventhal agrees, dismissing protests from school board members who say the IG has no authority over them. “County law is very clear,” Leventhal says in the Washington Times. "The [inspector general] has the authority."
