Trustee Williams' Statement Regarding False Stories
LAS VEGAS, Nev.—Trustee Katie Williams released the following statement regarding a pair of categorically false stories and a series of similar social media posts published under the guise of journalism:
“It has come to my attention that there are two articles making direct claims or implications that I was in attendance at “Stop The Steal” rallies in either Washington, D.C., or Las Vegas, on January 6th, 2021. These claims could not be further from the truth and are easily disprovable, as I was working and in briefings with the Clark County School District Board of Trustees throughout the day.
Beyond that, I have stated publicly from the beginning that what happened in our nation’s Capitol is wrong, and that those responsible should be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law. My position on this and any violence carried out against American citizens has been consistent: I do not condone violence of any kind whether it be the sort seen in cities across America over the summer or that which was carried out at the heart of our Republic last week.
The slanderous articles that Brett Gilman and Eric Huey have fabricated and published are range from fallacious implications to outright lies and conspiracy theories. These sorts of baseless claims are not new from this pair; they are simply the latest and most outrageous volley in their months long effort to damage my reputation and attempt to force me into resignation. For the last 10 months, I have dealt with near constant harassment and cyber bullying from these two individuals. The result of the webs they have spun have been evident in the numerous threats to myself and my family.
Let me be clear: I will not be bullied or slandered into resigning. I will be openly advocating for the rights of Clark County students and parents for the next four years, just as the voters of District B overwhelmingly elected me to do.
I am inviting this duo to graciously bow out now. The decision is ultimately theirs, but they should know that should they continue their onslaught of misleading stories and slanderous lies, their behavior will result in legal action.”
