Subin says Inspector General was 'used'

County Councilman Mike Subin continues to assail the Inspector General for his audit of the Kendale/Seven Locks issue. He says the IG has no right to investigate the public school system and claims that the IG was "used as a weapon."

According to the Gazette, Subin now says that the school system is a state agency and is not a county entity, even though he chairs the county council committee with oversight of that entity.

"It’s clear to me that the IG is being used as a weapon here," says Subin. "Whoever complained to him is using it. The IG allowed himself to be used. There was not a breach of responsibility. There were no policies broken. There were no laws broken."

That's not what the IG says.
