Wake County school board member Debra Goldman speaks out on 2010 police report

Wake County school board member Debra Goldman is speaking out about the recent controversy that has engulfed her run for state auditor and shaken up the school board and community.

In the three-hour interview with the N&O on Saturday, Goldman also dealt with topics such as why her family has contacted Cary police so much, why she contacted Cary police about school board vice chairman Keith Sutton and her plans should she not be elected auditor.

Debra Goldman in legal dispute with her husband

Wake County school board member Debra Goldman's family situation is getting messier.

As noted in today's article, she and her husband, Steven Goldman, are accusing each other of bad behavior in three court filings this month. She got a domestic-violence order of protection after charging that her husband made “demeaning, degrading, accusatory” outbursts, kept a loaded gun in their Cary house and hit their minor children.

Steven Goldman denies his wife's charges and counters in court documents that she's “secreting and diverting” money from the couple’s joint accounts, causing them to fall into negative balances. His filing also says she has tried to estrange the couple’s children by telling them that “‘Daddy took all the money,’ and that the family has no money available for food because of (his) acts.”

Steven Goldman also claims in a filing that Debra Goldman caused him emotional distress by telling him that she had committed multiple acts of adultery and intended to commit more. Debra Goldman declined comment.
