Josh Brokaw of TruthSayers News is at the third day of the hearing on the future of Karen Baer, the currently suspended director of Tompkins County’s Office of Human Rights.

This should be the last day of this hearing. We’ll be here at least through lunchtime, according to one attorney, so if you want to make a trek out on this lovely day to the Tompkins County Health Department, 55 Brown Road, you can drive up or take a free TCAT ride – use Route 32.
