2nd Man Challenges Regan Claim

(Tom Carter, director of the Human Rights Education Institute) said if Regan is willing, he would be happy to take a lie detector test with him. “Because I know who would win,” he said.

Former Coeur d'Alene School Board Trustee Brent Regan took aim at human rights advocate Tony Stewart on Wednesday, calling him out for publicly opposing two mayoral candidates who do not support the city's anti-discrimination ordinance. In what he described as “An open letter to Mr. Steward (sic)” Regan posted the following comment under the online version of Stewart's My Turn column. “Tony, During our conversation at the CDA Library I chastised you for falsely and publicly characterizing a person's position without doing the due diligence of first talking to that person. You apologized and assured me it would never happen again and yet here you are doing EXACTLY the same crime,” Regan wrote. “If you are to lead the Task Force on Human Relations then perhaps you should invest in the 'relations' part and actually talk to people before you start squawking like Chicken Little.” The problem is, both Stewart and Tom Carter, director of the Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations, said on Wednesday that conversation never happened/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press.
