The Plot Sickens
Jonathan Pait
July 13, 2001

A follow-up to our editorial "Their lips are sealed."

The county is now straddled with the responsibility to pay over a billion dollars of OUR money for new school buildings. Do we have a right to know what has happened behind closed doors?

Read about Roger Meek and William Herlong speaking out of both sides of their mouths.

According to News 4:

"I suspect that if our board members had cooperated and not revealed information and had not tried to undermine process, this thing would've been over a year ago," Herlong said.

"I think people have a right to know who took it upon themselves to do that, who usurped the authority of the board and gave a document out. I think the people have the right to know," he is later quoted as saying.

Okay, so let's see. . . the public is supposed to be upset at the person who wished to inform the public of what the board is up to.

How can we translate this?

"We believe the people of Greenville County deserve the right to know who is undermining this board. The board knows what is best for the county. The people of the county surely will be upset with this person who has not stepped into line with the rest of the board."
