We have an accountability to everyone around us. Accountability isn’t in one direction. Accountability truly is a 360 degree relationship.
How many times have we heard of someone in a politician’s office doing something wrong and the politician, the leader, saying he or she had no knowledge of the wrongdoing? Maybe it was an office that was broken into in an attempt to steal information from an adversary, or maybe it was just a lane closing on a bridge to cause traffic in a community where the local mayor didn’t support the governor. The leader tries to get off by claiming ignorance. Slick move, but I don’t think it holds water.
