Regan Holds To His Version Of Story

In a Coeur d'Alene Press online exchange with HREI director Tom Carter, former Coeur d'Alene school trustee Brent Regan continued to claim that his version of an encounter with human-rights activist Tony Stewart was accurate:

  • Tom Carter: “THE TRUE FACTS OF WHAT WAS SAID FROM A WITNESS ((BRENT)) If you recall as it seems you do not. I was standing behind Tony during your conversation. The TRUE recollection of the story was as follows: Brent walks up to Tony and states, 'Tony you have No Integrity!' Tony Responds, 'Mr. Regan we did not ask you to resign from the board. When you did apologized and we accepted your apology.' At that point Tony and I walked away.”
  • Brent Regan: “That is not what transpired. If face it does not even make sense. You must have me confused with another person dissatisfied with Mr. Steward's lack of professionalism.”

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.

Longo, HREI Director Wear High Heels

Coeur d'Alene Police Chief Wayne Longo and Director Tom Carter of the Human Rights Education Institute wore high heels and participated in the “Walk a Mile in her Shoes” event on Saturday in the City Park. This is an annual event that brings awareness to stopping domestic violence. Both men chose to wear socks with their heels. Kind of a fashion no-no. But their support and participation of this worthy event is commendable. (Photo: Coeur d'Alene Police Department photo)

Question: I don't think red is the chief's color. Izzit just me?
