No word from Weast about supporter's racism

Superintendent Jerry Weast is never shy about talking to the media - except when there's news that makes him look bad.

He's looking mighty bad right now, silent for a week as his main remaining ally on the school board, Stephen Abrams, self-immolates over the reportedly racist abuse of an African-American candidate whom Abrams had persuaded not to run for county council.

We didn't think Weast tolerated racism among his supporters. Apparently he makes exceptions. Let's see how long it takes him to make a statement.
