CHARLOTTESVILLE - Virginia's former secretary of finance said Tuesday that if he had known in 2000 what he knows now, he would not have approved a $4.2 million state grant to the National D-Day Memorial Foundation.
Ron Tillett, the former secretary, said if had he known about the foundation's use of a $3.5 million short-term loan as matching money for the grant, he would not have approved it."
