Bennett forced to resign from K12
Apparently, Bennett has stooped so low that he has brought the already low company down even further. Check out the statement from the K12 website (via SchoolsMatter):
Statements by K12 Inc. and William J. Bennett Regarding Bennett's Resignation from the K12 Board of Directors
McLean, VA -- October 3, 2005 - K12, Inc. today announced that William J. Bennett has resigned as an employee, and as Chairman and member of the company's Board of Directors, effective immediately. K12 Inc. said the Board accepted his resignation, thanking him for his contributions to the company. K12 Inc. said that it has no relationship with, or involvement in, Dr. Bennett's radio program. The opinions expressed by Dr. Bennett on his radio program are his and his alone.
Dr. Bennett, in a separate statement said: "I am in the midst of a political battle based on a coordinated campaign willfully distorting my views, my record, and my statements. Given the controversy surrounding the remarks I made on my radio show, I am stepping down from my positions at K12, so that neither the mission of the company, nor its children, are affected, distracted, or harmed in any way."
A coordinated campaign? Who's coordinating it? Who's distorting your statements? Everyone's been quoting you exactly as you said it. And the audio of you saying it is right here.
The paranoia on the right is astounding.
