Wake County school board member Chris Malone is breaking his silence about the recent N&O stories on the 2010 incident involving him and fellow board member Debra Goldman.
In an interview today, Malone said his attorneys advised him not to comment on the N&O story or details of the police report where he was implicated by Goldman as a burglary suspect and they gave conflicting statements about whether they had a romantic relationship. But Malone reaffirmed his intent to run and win the election for the state House 35 seat.
"There's no reason to drop out. I've already moved past it," Malone said. "I have faith that my constituents know who I am and why I'm running, so I'm just going to keep campaigning."
Goldman still has not returned calls requesting comment on the issue.
