Here's what happened, according to N&O reporter Kristin Collins. Truitt was among 25 to 30 people who stood up behind the podium with the organizers of the press conference.
Tedesco and the other candidates endorsed by the Wake Schools Community Alliance stood in the audience.
After the press conference ended, Truitt walked over near Tedesco and he mentioned that it looked as if she supported Wake's diversity policy. She fired back that she does not support the diversity policy, but she does support diversity.
"I'm not for segregation, which is what you're for," Truitt said to Tedesco.
