Ms. Pugh ended her news conference Thursday by saying she could not legally answer questions because the matter is under investigation — presumably referring to the complaint filed to the state prosecutor’s office by its former investigator, James Cabezas. That’s not quite true. She may well have been advised by her lawyer not to answer questions, but she is perfectly free to ignore him or her, just as she ignored her doctor’s advice to continue resting after her illness. She is entitled to answer any questions she wishes — no judge has said otherwise. Indeed, she provided the information she (and/or her lawyer) wanted to during a 20-minute news conference at City Hall. No one would stop her from providing more documentation to put this matter to rest. Will she?
