Jann-Michael Greenburg, the president of the Scottsdale Unified School District, has been caught with a dossier of parents protesting over critical race theory. The dossier had info and photos of 47 parents and, shockingly, their children.
The files in question were contained on a Google Drive to which Greenburg has access, although he claims he has nothing to do with the matter. AZ Free News was first to report.
On Wednesday night, the school board sent out a frantic email blast trying to assuage parents who are now calling for Greenburg's resignation.
“I am calling for the immediate resignation of our board president Jann-Michael Greenburg. We cannot allow anyone in a leadership position to secretly compile personal documents and information on moms and dads who have dared speak out publicly or on social media about their grievances with the district," said Amy Carney, a candidate for the Scottsdale Governing Board in the upcoming elections, and a mother of six students currently enrolled in the district.
"We request President Greenburg’s resignation from the Governing Board effective immediately for this and other recent embarrassments to our district," continued Carney.
Alexander Kolodin, a lawyer working for Davillier Law Group, commented on the situation:
"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."
“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."
"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."
