I lived in Broward for many years. I received my primary and secondary education in public schools there.
In 2009, you may recall that Obama addressed all elementary schools in the country via closed circuit TV. Broward County was the only district in the country where attendance was mandatory. I sent an email to my district’s school board member, Beverly Gallagher, to object to students being required to view obama’s speech, especially since we were the only district requiring attendance. She responded with a nasty, insulting screed questioning my patriotism and lecturing me on “civics.” She also cc’ed all other school board members and a lot of other politicians, judges, basically the whole Broward County Commucrat power structure.
Well, the very next year, Gallagher was copping a plea to public corruption charges, having accepted bribes from a developer.......which she was doing at the very same time she was piously lecturing me about civics. And she wasn’t even very smart about it....taking cash under the table (literally) in a doggie bag at Applebee’s.
Well, I found her emai and answered it, asking if there was a course in remedial civics in prison. Of course, I knew she’d never see it. But you know who did? All those low life’s that she had copied on her email to me got a copy of my message to her. It was soooooo sweet.
One of her cohorts, Stephanie Kraft, was convicted in 2014 of similar but less sever charges and was given probation.
The takeaway: The Broward County School Board has not been about education for decades. It’s been about 100% Democrst political patronage and controlling the money that fuels one of the biggest school districts in the country.
ha, I love that you included her own “cc” list in your subsequent response about “remedial civics in prison.”
I doubt any of those Commucrats will learn anything, except maybe to be more careful about not getting caught.
Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel accused of misusing office for political gain
TAMARAC, Fla. - Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel didn’t make it to a political forum for local candidates at a condominium for senior citizens Wednesday afternoon, but he seemed well-represented by his underlings nonetheless.
Wow great post.
Isn’t Broward County the Home of the Hanging Chad?
Could be mistaken.
