Still think the Seattle Mafia is insignificant to people who live in the Midwest or New England? Well check out the latest news from Bill Gates' favorite school district. If you're really pressed for time, scroll down to the last paragraph, where you'll find the punch line.
Today's edition of the right-wing Seattle Times features an ominous headline:
Seattle School District
The details are spelled out in the article Seattle Public Schools spending targeted in criminal probe.
Let me first put things in perspective for you. The Seattle School District is a cesspool of corruption; I'm talking hard core crime. The administration could be compared to George W. Bush's cabinet – or Obama's.
The endless corruption – along with rising property taxes – makes some people leery of voting for multi-million-dollar school levies. No problem: The Seattle Mafia has worked hard to make sure that levies get passed. If people vote NO, the levy just gets resubmitted until they vote YES.
Ever greedy for more money, the bastards recently unveiled a new trick: After citizens approved the latest school levy, they said they needed still more money and were therefore submiting ANOTHER levy. Then they decided it was safe to reveal their latest mega-scandal.
I'm not going to get bogged down in the details. It's the same old story of cronyism, with scumbags taking money that's supposed to go to students and giving it to their corrupt friends. You can find some more information courtesy of the Seattle Times' inbred sibling, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
The school district's website reveals that two of the main characters, Silas Potter and Fred Stephens, were well honored for their role in helping minorities and women (while screwing children).
Silas Potter has apparently gone into hiding, following in the footsteps of so many Seattle Schools administrators before him. But former executive facilities director Fred Stephens followed a more interesting path.
Stephens also served as deputy chief of staff under Governor Gary Locke, probably the most corrupt governor in Washington State history. As you may have heard, Obama appointed Locke as head of the Department of Commerce. Care to guess who Fred Stephens' new employer is?
That's right, the Dept. of Commerce. Unfortunately, Stephens isn't available for comment right now.
