    Can we assume that at the closed door session meeting with commissioners, someone asked some hard hitting questions like, “How was Wanda Greene and her son able to use the county as their personal bank accounts for so long and no one in the Finance department noticed?” Flora was clearly given the chance to jump before he got pushed.
