Following the revelation last week that the president of the Scottsdale Unified School District, Jann-Michael Greenburg, had been creating dossiers on parents who were protesting critical race theory teachings in their schools, Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake is calling on him to resign.
"The President of the Scottsdale unified School District's board has been caught creating dossiers on dozens of parents in his district who vocally oppose CRT, the woke curriculum that's poisoning the minds of children," wrote Lake in a statement released to Twitter on Saturday.
"I am calling on him to resign immediately," she continued. "If he won't admit his obvious wrong-doing and step down, the rest of the board should show leadership and demand it."
"Concerned parents at school board meetings have been painted as terrorists, while someone like Jann-Michael demeans, cyber-stalks, harasses and doxxes anyone who opposes him," the statement added. "I stand with the parents in Scottsdale who have gotten involved to give their children a fighting chance at a good education and will fight for them as Arizona's next governor."
The dossier contains information and photos of 47 parents in the school district as well as their children. The files are contained in a Google Drive document to which Greenburg has access to, though he claims to have no connection to the matter.
Alexander Kolodin, a lawyer working for Davillier Law Group, said "These allegations are deeply troubling, especially as concerns the photography of a minor child without parental consent and the taking down of license plate numbers of parents who Mr. Greenberg supposedly perceived as political opponents."
"Mr. Greenberg is an elected member of the school board. If such a photograph was taken with his express or tacit consent, he would potentially be liable for violations of Arizona's Parents' Bill of Rights, which recognizes a parent's 'fundamental' right to consent before the government makes a video or voice recording of the minor child," he added.
"Both Arizona and the federal government have laws prohibiting both intimidation generally and voter intimidation in particular such as ARS Titles 13 and 16, the Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871, the Civil Rights Act of 1957, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965," he continued. "If these allegations are true, Mr. Greenberg and his father might be liable for violating one or more of these laws – though it is difficult to say from the limited facts that have been reported and they must, of course, be presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty."
