Bernalillo County Manager sitting on the truth

It has been nearly a month now since an independent investigation into corruption and incompetence in Bernalillo County Government was completed and turned over to County Manager Thaddeus Lucero.

Stakeholders have been allowed to see a "summary" of the truth, link, but not the whole truth.

The continued hiding of the truth fuels speculation that the truth is being hidden in the interests of corrupt and/or incompetent County Officials who would like to avoid the consequences of their corruption and incompetence.

If there is another reason to hide the (ethically redacted) truth,
I cannot imagine it, and no one in County Government
(neither in the administration nor on the County Commission)
has offered it.

Their refusal to explain, defend, deny, or even acknowledge
the continued secrecy is deafening.

It smells like a cover up.

To the extent that perception is reality, it is a cover up.
