Response to H2O Man (Original post)

33. Been there done that

Years ago was on a suburban Cincinnati school board that shall remain nameless. Got myself elected in, don't ask me how, and figured out about half the shenanigans. Made a few calls to people I knew I could trust and found some folks at the state level that would put a stop to it. They figured out more shenanigans too well hidden for me to see.

2 school board members went to jail for a few months and had to pay back a bucket full of money. 2 more were voted out and probably earned IRS audits for the rest of their lives. It was a mess for a long time but in the end the school system thrived again.

I went through fucking hell for squealing but could have run again for the board and won in a walk. Instead I gave up city life and came back to the Kentucky homestead in my family since before Kentucky was a Commonwealth.

Would I do it again? YES.
