You would think that a decision to waste $15 million of public money would provoke some sort of reaction out of the self-appointed watchdogs of taxpayer money. 

But when the Wake County Board of Education voted Tuesday to abandon a proposed site for a new high school against the advice of a panel of experts, the only thing heard from Americans for the Prosperous and the Wake Taxpayers Association was silence. 

That’s because the proposal came from the new right-wing Republican majority on the board. Just imagine what the groups would say if a board with a progressive majority voted to waste $15 million in the midde of the worst budget crisis in a generation.

Where are all the tea partiers now?
