Official Confesses Crime

In a surprisingly candid moment, an elected county commissoner in Dyer County spoke about how the county government has been operating:

"
So you mean to tell me we've been breaking the law all these years?" asked Walker.

"Yes, we've broken the law in the past as it stands now," said Hill.

"I don't know how any legislation got passed with that," said Walker. "It's happened because of a whole lot of discussion on the telephone and between people."

The commission then voted to support "diluting" the state law, to allow for officials to meet and decide public policy in secret and without public notice.

Why the sudden concern?

After all, these commissioners (and those who elect them) think that an admission of being guilty of a crime is acceptable if an elected official makes the admission in a public meeting.
