Powell Spins Wheels After Audit Proves Nepotism

If you missed it yesterday, the Herald-Leader did a story about the audit confirming Montgomery County Schools superintendent Joshua Powell illegally hired his wife, Anna.

This was the best part of the story:

On Tuesday, Joshua Powell said he was working on a response to Edelen’s letter.

“I anticipated something like this,” Powell said. “It’s ridiculous.”

Like the Auditor’s spokeswoman says:

Stephenie Hoelscher, a spokeswoman for Edelen’s office, said Tuesday that the letter speaks for itself.

That it does.
