Edit: Shouldn’t Matter Who Asks

Today's Coeur d'Alene Press editorial: As you'll see in a moment if you hadn't noticed before, a Coeur d'Alene School District patron isn't happy with district officials. Mary Jo Finney told school board Chairman Tom Hearn to his face -- in front of a televised meeting - that he should resign, and she has now put that message in writing. We appreciate Finney for providing a forum to discuss something important, and to raise awareness among the public and public officials at the same time. Because she has been a persistent critic of the Coeur d'Alene School District for years now, it would be easy to ignore Finney's latest complaint. It would also be wrong. Finney has contacted the Kootenai County Prosecutor's Office alleging open meeting violations by Hearn, other school board members and district personnel. At her request, The Press also is looking into her allegations that stem from the district's handling of sexual orientation and related legal issues. More here.

Question: Does it matter that a die-hard supporter of the previous School Board and critic of new board members is asking for an investigation into emailgate?
