Just when we thought Dallas ISD Superintendent Mike Miles couldn’t embarrass himself and Dallas anymore, he delivers.
It seems Miles’ preoccupation with a black female trustee has no boundaries. Not content to call his personal goon squad and have the female trustee forcibly picked up and carried out of a school in her district, he then spent gosh knows how much time and effort soliciting employees who would agree to file complaints against her.
The complaints Miles managed to drum up, at least two of them, are public thanks to Matthew Haag and Tawnell Hobbs at the Dallas Morning News. Read them. The two complainers are an employee who has already been identified as having a cloud over her employment and Mike Miles’ driver who, though he has apparently agreed to keep mum on the superintendent’s secrets or risk termination, is encouraged to rat on everybody else.
Pretty weak, Mikey.
There is of course no way Tonya Sadler Grayson of Human Capital Management has any favors she might need from the superintendent. He’d already fired the employee at the Professional Standards Office who might have had any insight into whatever hanky panky was going on over in HCM.
We remember when it was first disclosed that former U.S. attorney Paul Coggins had been hired to head this trustee investigation and Miles disavowed any knowledge of this action, even though he had been whirling his Rolodex seeking current and former employees who would complain for him.
Elrod did it, remember?
Even Board president and Miles’ cheerleader Miguel Solis found the situation ”peculiar.”
The nose grows.
Miles is so obsessed with this black female trustee, he is not content to have her carried out of her school building and investigated for wrongdoing on charges he solicited.
She must go, be gone, vamoosed, nada, never again to walk the halls at 3700 Ross!
Now it seems Mike Miles is soliciting replacements for this trustee, who is up for re-election next spring.
A well respected Dallas attorney was astonished to be asked to meet with the superintendent to, he thought, discuss educational issues, only to find he was instead being not-so-subtlely recruited to run against the black female trustee.
He was offended.
Miles said he was misunderstood. He thought the attorney asked for the meeting. The attorney says, uh, no.
The nose grows some more.
Even without the growing Pinocchio nose Miles can no longer hide, we know he’s a puppet.
You would think that even his puppet masters are embarrassed at this point.
The rest of us? We should be indignant. Get rid of this turkey.
