Clarksburg deal won't stop IG probe

A deal to settle wrongdoing at Clarksburg Town Center won't stop Inspector Thomas Dagley's probe of alleged corruption in the county government, the Washington Post reports.

"Clarksburg remains a very active investigation for us, and rightfully so," Dagley said in the Post. "We are committed for the long haul . . . and our timetable is very different than others', such as those who have a goal for the mediation process."

The Clarksburg case is important to the Seven Locks community, as it represents what appears to be a pattern of wrongdoing by county officials. The Save Seven Locks School Coalition has joined forces with the community leaders in Clarksburg who discovered the waste, fraud and abuse of trust.
