Trib: Little’s No Comment Fans Flames

Until this month, Mark Little was Idaho's top purchasing official. Poke around and you might hear gossip that he was disgruntled with the way his superiors managed school Superintendent Tom Luna's massive student laptop computer program. Described as a 57-year-old by-the-book former military man, he's taken a job with the Port of Tacoma. Little could have easily dismissed the rumors by noting he's getting paid $100,000 - considerably more than the $71,282 he earned in Idaho - or that he was moving to be closer to his children and grandchildren. The Idaho Statesman's Dan Popkey gave him every opportunity. He didn't take it. "I don't know about that, but I don't want to talk to you," he said. "I'm not going to answer your questions. I got nothin' to say to you, OK?"/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune. More here.

Question: Do you think something smells fishy here?
