When the question is, will you tell the truth? any answer except yes, means no.

There was a press conference today regarding the Locksley-Gerald dust up.

You could cut the skepticism in the room with a knife.

Jessica Garate from KRQE called them liars to their faces.

UNM President David Schmidly
says he wants transparency.

He says they are telling the truth,
the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

Yet when I asked him if he would begin an impartial investigation of the handling of the entire matter, an investigation that will report to the public record, his response meant, no.

His actual words were, "I haven't made a decision on that yet."

My follow up was, would you care to make one now?

His actual answer was, "no"
he would not.

He says the leadership of the UNM would be completely vindicated if an honest audit were done. Yet he won't begin the audit. To save a few thousand dollars. Krebs and Schmidly make more than the audit would cost, every single day.

Even for a day like today.

Paul Krebs was asked why no incontrovertible records were
created. His answer was, because there is impending litigation.

Which means, it is OK to suppress the truth, if the truth can be
used against you later, by some poor schmuck suing for justice.

UNM President David Schmidly actually mouthed the mantra
of good ol' boys in trouble; it's time to move on.

No need to hold any of the good ol' boys actually accountable for
their misconduct and their incompetence. Let's just move along.

This is not old news. Right now, right this minute,
the truth is not being told.

Move on?

I don't think so.
