South Carolina Research Authority CEO Bill Mahoney may be tiring of the increased scrutiny being focused on both himself and the agency he heads.
When asked by a reporter earlier this week to respond to comments by SCRA Chairman Bill Masters about apparent discrepancies between what Mahoney told employees and what he’s discussed with fellow board members regarding salary increases for staff, he was in no mood to talk.
“I have no comments,” he told a reporter from The Nerve. “You’re excused.”
You’re excused?!? Is Mahoney the chief of a state agency or the Roman Empire?
A mass grave believed to contain the bodies of approximately 100 Jews killed by Romanian troops during World War II has been discovered in a forest northeast of Bucharest, researchers said last week, offering further evidence of the country’s involvement in war crimes.
The find in a forest near the town of Popricani, about 220 miles northeast of Bucharest, contains the bodies of men, women and children who were shot in 1941, the Elie Wiesel National Institute for the Study of the Holocaust in Romania said in a statement.
Last week, the area was sealed off by police, local reporters told The Associated Press.
The find offers evidence of pogroms against Jews in the region, scholars say, campaigns that were long minimized in a country whose official history taught that Germans were the sole perpetrators of the Holocaust.
