Mayor Burchett apparently jumped on Dr. James P. McIntyre, Jr Director of Knox County Schools about a school secretary on paid leave. Well, the law director is quoted just last week saying he didn’t know nothing about it.
I don’t have a dog in either fight and I ain’t fond of cats. However, after a decade of blogging. You readers expect me to say something.
Let’s travel back to this little jewel from December 2010 at the Big Metal Shed on the Hill.
After an almost four month investigation, here in one paragraph is the summation.
Upon taking office, Burchett said he knew nothing about the severance packages and rescinded them. Later, he admitted that he knew of the payouts, and his chief of staff, Dean Rice, met with a member of the Ragsdale administration about the severance payouts.
So, while one may have relied on the law department and the law department got overloaded and forgot. At least no body lied.
