11:04 pm
sitting on distinguished row and had to take remedial classes for a year. there's something wrong with this picture. these are supporters of the four board members who contacted the state allegedly that widespread corruption allow hundreds of students to graduate without meeting state requirements. since we've made those allegations there's not a day or a few hours that go by that we don't get additional people coming forward. the group went into the board room singing. seats so hard on come by some had to wait outside. there has been no systemic effort ordered by me or others acting on my behalf. school ceo dr. kevin maxwell denied any wrongdoing. the false allegations about our graduation rates strike at everything that prince george's county schools stand for, past, present and future.

11:06 pm
comment was denied by the majority of the board. that motion fails. every day this week i've asked the maryland state department of education will it be investigating these claims, so far the department will not say one way or the other. i've also been in touch with governor larry hogan's office, today a spokesperson tells me we are continuing to look into this. she says the governor is out of the country until next week, but when he returns he will be in touch with fox5. we've talked to numerous school employees and parents about these l allegations and we're continuing to learn more as people reach out to us. tropical storm cindy made landfall in southwest ton, louisiana this morning pounding coastal areas with high winds, heavy rain and flash flooding. sipped did i is now a tropical depression, but it is still packing quite
