Nebraska Watchdog has uncovered shouts of “You’re ignorant…You’re a fool…” along with cussing, including the “f” word, pouring into a public meeting in Douglas County.
County Commissioner Mike Boyle and a woman in the audience hurled insult after insult (listen below) at each other this week.
Contacted by Nebraska Watchdog, Boyle—who was on the receiving end of the nasty expletive deleted— says he will apologize to the woman.
The scene was a meeting room on the usually quiet 9th floor of the City-County building.
The topic: sexually transmitted diseases.
It all starts with County Health Director Adi Pour announcing an $88,000 grant from Blue Cross and Blue Shield.
The money, private funds not tax dollars, will go to buy test kits allowing young people to test themselves for STD’s without telling their parents.
One woman in the audience appeared critical of the ‘don’t tell your parents’ policy.
That led to the following free-for-all with County Commissioner Chris Rodgers trying, unsuccessfully, to referee.
