Dan Murphy Caught Misusing County Computer

Knox County Schools purchased laptops for all school board members, this was an effort for the board to go paperless. Well, during Thursday's meeting the audio was on Murphy's laptop and the sound from the NCAA basketball tournament came on during a board discussion. It disrupted the entire meeting causing School Board Member Cindy Buttry to comment "we know what Murphy is doing" to which board member Kit Carson say "there is a mute button"

Knoxville media organizations should ask for a report showing the websites and online activity (including emails) of members of the school board during meeting times. It is possible that emails are being exchanged between members during the meeting which would be a violation of Tennessee's Open Meetings law.
