As a taxpayer I have the right to ask myself, "Why didn't he know more? Why didn't he immediately conduct an internal audit of everyone in his front office?"... and I don't see what your problem is with the questions.<quoted text>
How do know he didn't, or wouldn't have if he had known about it? He reported the questionable financial records of Tim Russell...
Again, had he been proactive in his management, he wouldn't be answering all the questions he's answering now. And in a private sector company he would ABSOLUTELY be required to answer a lot more questions than I have. "... Had I known..." would be an acceptable reply. Be honest about this, man.
I sat through that interview twice Sunday.
