'Garbage': How community leader terms Duncan's and Silverman's smears

A community leader who opposed county plans to turn over public school property to crooked lobbyist Jack Abramoff says Duncan's and Silverman's allegations of bigotry are "garbage."

"That is so much garbage," says Thomas Robinson, a Wheaton community activist who fought to keep the Col. Joseph A. Belt Junior High School as a public school when the county tried to use it for non-public school purposes.

Robinson and his neighbors had also opposed county plans to turn the school into a housing facility.
