Some people would say Ms. Hales is lying for political advantage

Ms. Hales describes how the nominations for the Chatham Economic Development Corporations (EDC)occurred during the Board of Commissioners’ meeting and wrote, quote: “Bock said he *couldn’t vote for an artist* ” Notice the use of stars in her summary instead of the traditional quotation marks. I believe Ms. Hales uses this notation purposely when attributing a quote to someone that did not occur.
