Perez: 'somebody might have something to hide'

County Councilman Tom Perez says that the opposition of some of his colleagues and MCPS to the Inspector General's authority shows the public "that somebody might have something to hide."

The bitter, often shrill opposition from Superintendent Jerry Weast, the Board of Education, and councilmen like Steve Silverman and Mike Subin leaves a bad smell, Perez says in the Washington Times.

"It leads one to believe, perhaps erroneously, that somebody might have something to hide, if they don't welcome independent oversight," according to Perez.
