Breaking News on CORI Background Check: Where’s Ron Burgundy?
July 12, 2011
I can just see it now. The investigative team at Boston’s Fox channel 25 is high fiving and sipping on their Appletinis while celebrating the huge story they broke about the loopholes in the state’s CORI background check system. Ron Burgundy would be jealous.
One question. How hard did these reporters have to work to identify this loophole? How many hours did they spend toiling away. Perhaps they did a little undercover work, Fletch-style.
Well, we could have saved them the trouble. We’ve been breaking this “hard-hitting news” for at least 3, maybe 5 years. And we probably weren’t the first ones to say it either.
Okay. I’ll be serious now. The station found a woman that was employed by a state contractor was a wanted fugitive in the state of Florida. They also found that the state court reporter accused of rape that we told you about a couple months ago had convictions for other sexually deviant crimes in South Carolina.
The state really needs to rethink their screening program. See the full story below.
