Subin and Duncan can't keep anti-semite allegations straight

County Executive Doug Duncan says a single person holding a sign is what motivated him to hand over a public school to a private group connected with lobbyist Jack Abramoff, just a month after Abramoff's sweatshop clients in Saipan made the largest legal donations possible to Duncan's campaign.

Problem is, County Council Education Committee Chairman Michael Subin - himself a big proponent of getting rid of public school land - contradicts Duncan in trying to corroborate him.

The alleged incident of an individual holding a "We don't want your kind here" sign concerned the Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School in Rockville, according to Subin - not the Col. Joseph A. Belt Junior High School in Wheaton, as Duncan claimed.

So reports the June 9 Washington Post.
