Darrell Issa is known for not giving a damn about truth, his constituents, or his honor. He is responsible for 40’s of millions spent on witch hunts to find dirt on Hillary Clinton. (How is that working out for you, bro?) He is the richest elected official in Washington, all of his money from Viper Car Alarm…. (DE, do, DE, do, whooop, whooop,).. As a kid, he was also arrested for car theft….
Dave Sokola, whose district contains some of the best of Christina School District’s public schools has been gutting those schools to finance Newark Charter School. This charter school was “that same one” which was forced to abandon its “white only” admissions policy and use a fixed lottery instead. Still, people they don’t like, don’t get in the lottery.
Hence the correlation mentioned in the title… One sells out the ethics of our national government; the other sells out our ethics of our little children…
Recently a charter heist of $3 million dollars concocted in the middle of the night, was sprung on Christina. Legislative authorities were alerted in time to stop it, thank goodness. But Dave Sokola hotly defended the stealing of the money in a letter to a Charter School constituent….
One can dance around whether Sokola is culpable or not. He was not involved in the decision, that was the Delaware Department of Education and if he’d remained silent, no one would have known. However his outburst was published and is now public knowledge.
Christina educates 15,000 students every day. Newark Charter only 2000. But Sokola wanted to take $3 million away from those 15,000 and give it to only those 2000, who btw, are from wealthy parents, almost all white. This same school was caught this summer fudging its books, forcing the collection of “dues” from parents for field trips, and then charging the state for those same field trips and pocketing the money…
Yep, those are Dave Sokola’s friends. Are you now seeing the connection? Both Issa and Sokola are about the fleecing… Taking from the public and putting into the hands of the elite, their “friends”….
Good news is that he is up for election against a good candidate. We can bump him out and have a public school champion working hard to keep Greater Newark’s money in our schools instead of always trying to find another owner for it…….
