Government of the Regents, by the Regents, and for the Regents.

"The people" want an independent review of the handling of the Locksley affair by UNM President David Schmidly, UNM Athletics Director Paul Krebs, and UNM Human Resources Vice President Helen Gonzales.

The Regents are directly responsible for Schmidly's performance, and by logical extension, the performance of Krebs and Gonzales.

The good ol' boys have decided to not investigate incompetence and corruption any further than the investigation already completed by the incompetent and increasingly likely, the corrupt, themselves. Journal, link.

In short, the Regents are covering their own asses.

Public servants have an irrefutable obligation to respond to all legitimate questions about the public interests and about their public service. They have an ethical obligation to respond to those questions candidly, forthrightly and honestly.

The Journal reports that Schmidly and Krebs refuse to answer any more questions. This after ending the news conference abruptly and with legitimate questions unasked and unanswered.

They refuse to answer any more questions.

And this is alright with everyone, because?
