And Admits It in His Own e-Mails
He made the announcement at a news conference in
late Thursday morning. Tallahassee
“The decision to resign is mine and mine alone, because I believe that when this discussion turns to an adult, we lose the discussion about making life better for children,” Bennett said.
Why did he quit. Well it seems like that in
the emails clearly show Bennett's staff was intensely focused on Christel House, whose founder has given more than $2.8 million to Republicans since 1998, including $130,000 to Bennett and thousands more to state legislative leaders.
The e-mail correspondence is a smoking gun that shows Mr. Bennett did exactly what he said he did not do, cooked the books for the specific school. When he learned of the problem there was this.
Bennett called the situation "very frustrating and disappointing" in an email that day.
"I am more than a little miffed about this," Bennett wrote. "I hope we come to the meeting today with solutions and not excuses and/or explanations for me to wiggle myself out of the repeated lies I have told over the past six months." (emphasis added)
Yep, that makes him guilty in just about any court. And no one should be concerned about the future for Mr. Bennett, after a while his rich friends will find a nice job for him someplace, as long as they can keep that news quiet. And then he can go on repeating his lies, no questions asked.
