From the York Daily Record -
|Tuesday night, former Dover school board member Sheila Harkins said during public comment that she had talked to the district's attorney, Stephen Russell, about the legality of mentioning intelligent design. She said he had in turn talked to the American Civil Liberties Union and returned to her saying there was no constitutional issue.|
Tuesday evening, Russell remained quiet. Wednesday, he said he didn't respond because he was in shock and he didn't want to get into an argument.
"Sheila Harkins would not have talked to me because I would have billed her for talking to me, and she would not have wanted to pay me," Russell said.
He said he didn't talk to anyone from the ACLU about intelligent design, so he couldn't have relayed an opinion from them to her.
Court testimony indicated he advised the district it had potential liability.
SHeila Harkins obviously joining Bonsell and Buckingham in being "economical with the truth".
