“The manager team is a very diverse team in background and experience… we have different styles and that’s fine,” Crow said. “The larger point is this isn’t about any one person - this isn't about how people are feeling about this issue. Every person sitting in that chamber has taken an oath to be an impartial juror. We’ve all taken oaths to put the constitution, put the country ahead of our own interests and well being.”

“As one who is listening attentively and working hard to get to a fair process, I was offended,” she said last week.
