Subin says he's sure there were no improprieties

While Councilman Tom Perez and others are concerned about conflicts of interests or worse in the alleged influence-buying racket to take over a public school, County Council Education Committee Chairman Michael Subin (pictured) says he's sure everything was honest and aboveboard.

Just as it always is in Montgomery County.

The Washington Post reports that Subin "said Duncan and Pasternak had kept a clear demarcation between their political and official activities."

Subin supported the scheme to provide MCPS property to lobbyist Jack Abramoff's school.

Just as he did with Duncan's stealth plan - which the community successfully scuttled - to turn over the Seven Locks Elementary School to developers.
