Fitzgerald Asks: I Know You Are, But What Am I?

County Council President Rich Fitzgerald reportedly has accused at-large Republican Chuck McCullough of lying when proposing legislation that council members have admitted they passed without reading.

McCullough has threatened to sue, which should remind everyone to be cautious with respect to calling others liars.

On the other hand, I think the Supreme Court has ruled that truth is a defense. So there should be no problem in pointing out that if this report of Rich Fitzgerald boasting about a ninth consecutive operating budget without a tax increase is accurate, Rich Fitzgerald was expressing something other than the truth.
