Michelle Rhee is a former D.C. Schools Chancellor. She is engaged to former NBA star and current Mayor of Sacramento, California. Johnson was embroiled in a scandal of syphoning off $75 million from Americorp and making sexual advances to young girls. It is believed that Rhee, who sat on Johnson’s St. Hope charity board, helped with a coverup. Rhee is close friends with Michelle Obama and Johnson is an Obama donor. Fraud, Sex Scandals and Education? They shouldn’t be in the same sentence, should they?
Rhee lost her job when her boss, Adrian Fenty, lost his after a November election loss. Nevertheless, Rhee says she is going to “transform” education. The movie Waiting for Superman premiered the night before the November elections. It championed Rhee and Fenty’s work, and was to be a catalyst for creating a “public passion for school reform the way An Inconvenient Truth did for fraudulent global warming claims.
She says she is going to “transform education,” with her new initiative StudentsFirst. She hopes to sign up one million members and raise $1 billion in the first year. As Chancellor, Rhee did not advocate for school vouchers, maybe because it was politically incorrect, or maybe because of that relationship with Barack and Michelle Obama.
I’ve written a lot about Kevin Johnson and fired Inspector General Gerald Walpin. Walpin discovered the Americorp/Johnson fraud and the sex scandal, with Johnson offering money – $1,000 a month – to one of three girls. Obama fired Walpin for uncovering the sordid story.
Now we learn that this school Chancellor, Michelle Rhee, was allegedly willing to attempt a cover-up of sexual misconduct with minors, and then became engaged to the perpetrator, Kevin Johnson. What a great pairing. A woman with two children still in elementary school, who runs the D.C. school district and an accused sexual predator. I have written many articles about Gerald Walpin, Kevin Johnson and AmeriCorps. Please browse through those, listed below the video, and understand the corruption coming right out of the White House. It is a sordid story of corruption at the highest levels, including the DOJ, and it exposes the lengths AmeriCorp will go to, to hijack taxpayers.
Please, think twice before donating to Michelle Rhee and her plan for transforming education.
