This story about Larry Leake is just the latest in a long growing list of reasons why he should resign immediately. He has been on the board for far too long and it is time to go. By inserting himself into an ongoing investigation he has disqualified himself from sitting as a member of the board that would eventually hear any evidence of the investigation if it came to a hearing. He is on the board – he is not an SBOE staff person or investigator.
Leake has served for too many years on the board and it is past time to give someone else a turn. But his political connections which run deep in Madison County in the west and his services as a fundraiser for Gov. Easley and others have kept him in a position that allows him to potentially punish his enemies and protect his friends. To this we can now add WASTING tax dollars for personal comfort!
It is time to for Larry Leake to go.
