The (drum) Beat Goes On

Yet another MSM outlet has called for Kevin “I Voted for Obama” Huffman’s firing.

Following the broadside delivered yesterday by two conservative Republican legislators asking the Comptroller to investigate the TCAP scandal, today’s Pitchfork & Torch award goes to the lead left-of-center columnist for the Knoxville News-Sentinel.

Pam Strickland pulls no punches in calling out Huffman and his “Mini-Me” (Erin O’Hara) for their roles in the scandal.  In her column, “Late Scores Should Lead To Dismissals”, Strickland states her case:

“[DOE’s Erin] O’Hara indicated in the email that the process would take approximately 10 days. Something that should have been known all along. She suggested delaying grades or giving out temporary grades that could be changed once the final TCAP numbers were in.

“Something tells me that she doesn’t have a 9-year-old, or better yet, a 13-year-old, waiting for that report card.

“But then, magically, the scores were ready. Knox County report cards had already gone out, so it didn’t matter. But someone in Nashville needs to figure out what’s going on.

“In the meantime, I’d like to suggest that O’Hara — who clearly doesn’t know what’s going on in her own department — be dismissed. And that her boss, Education Commissioner Kevin Huffman, also be shown the door.”

Time to gear up those office pools:  RTP will take Huffman is out in 90 days.  O’Hara in 45.

We will accept no bets on Haslam, as he is already a lame duck.
