According to the Washington Post, Stirrup apparently has learned little from Stewart’s ‘list of questions’ to Chief Deane and has decided to yet again venture down the path of most likely forwarding an email from a constituent to a county employee as if it was their own. In this instance Stirrup sent an email not to Chief Deane but to the County Executive demanding answers to a list of about 24 questions. But this time the accusations don’t involve a treasonous meeting between the police chief and the Mexican Consulate but rather if county employees ‘violated the public’ trust by providing the 9500Liberty Film Crew ‘privileged treatment’.
In response, County Executive responded:
Gerhart delivered his response yesterday. No security footage was provided, he indicated, and the filmmakers had not received any privileged treatment. He said staff members’ behavior had been “upstanding and forthright.”
Byler and Park are members of the media, Gerhart wrote. “Our commitment to upholding the public trust requests all County government staff to provide our citizens and the media with all requested public records provided such record is not exempt from disclosure.”
