Posted on 04/16/2010 7:35:24 PM PDT by OR Patriot
Jason Levin, the middle school teacher behind the Crash The Tea Party project, is dismissing claims that he misused his position to organize the scheme.
Levin is currently on a paid leave from the Beaverton, Oregon school district where he works while school officials investigate charges that he used school time and equipment to create the website CrashTheTeaParty.org. He told me his attorneys have advised him not to do any interviews while the investigation runs its course. But in a written statement he emailed me this morning, Levin said the charges are without merit.
"Any allegation that I used school district equipment or district time to create or maintain the website is completely and totally false," Levin wrote. "The fact that teachers are held to a higher standard when excercising their right to free speech (in their private lives) is patently unfair."
In a sign that the hullabaloo the project has caused is getting to him, however, Levin has offered the site up for sale -- cleaning his hands of the tea party infiltration plan that drew the ire of conservatives across the country, including Sean Hannity.

Some have said, even on this forum, that it was wrong to pursue this guy by exposing him and posting to his website/facebook page.
I would agree if this individual was PRACTICING FREE SPEECH. However, he what he was engaging in was a subversive effort to eliminate YOUR FREE SPEECH!
Therefore, I believe we had every right to defend our freedoms with any legal means necessary... AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT FREEPERS DID! CONGRATS ON A JOB WELL DONE!
His crime wasn’t free speech but using tax dollars to promote his agenda...I’m confused.
I hope our efforts to report his use of false identify on Facebook bit him in the arse too.
hmm... if it includes all traffic data including IP addresses and such, it may be an interesting data mining opportunity... see who the early buy-ins were and expose them.
Hey look, he was doing Hussein’s bidding—attacking America loving folks who disdain big government.
I do not feel sorry for him one freakin’ bit.
Perhaps this dip sh*t would like to explain why according to Fox News, one of his postings asked his zombie followers to get the social security numbers of tea party activists. Now what does destroying the tea party movement have to do with social security numbers..sounds like this guy wanted to do a little shopping on other people’s money
Look for new Whistleblower/Liberal Activist Protection legislation to be introduced before Mother Day to guard against such “unfair” exposure of ones anti-Tea Party activities.
No one infringed on his right to free speech.
The government wasn’t involved so his 1A rights are intact.
One would have to read his employment contract to make any allegations about his use of school time/equip to pursue his political free speech ... so that’s a side issue.
Free speech counters free speech.
Free speech doesn’t mean the right to zero consequences. (This is where Tim Robbins was wrong).
Unemployment line and tarnished image - he’s still getting off easy in his attempt to come against pro-Americans.
What the hell does that convoluted statement mean? That he did indeed use school property to create his site? What "higher standard" is he talking about?
I really wish they’d stop posting that libtard’s picture. His 15 minutes of fame are not only up, he should never be teaching children of any age.
It sure was a hoot yanking their chain on his board, tho.
Which FReeper was Iwantpie? I was Clem the Dem.
I wasn’t on the board, but ‘Iwantpie’ and ‘Clem the Dem’ are crackin’ me up.
You betcha and he can cry us a river too.
Now he’s had to hire attorneys (plural) to defend his wicked, sorry butt.
He was encouraging illegal activity. I don’t see how he wiggles out of that one.
What was he planning on doing with social security numbers? Certainly nothing pleasant.
Me Levin was obiviously rattled otherwise he wouldn’t have taken all of the violent threats down from his site and closed his forum. Very pathetic individual who does not beelvie in free speech. I hope his wife is so mad at him about being put on leave!
Yo dat! LMAO!
I was on his Facebook page earlier, and it has been ‘infiltrated’ too....heheheh.
