Parents of students enrolled in the Scottsdale Unified School District were outraged after discovering that one district board member obtained editing status to a Google Drive doc that included personal photos and information on several parents who have spoken out against school policies.
The personal information, according to The Daily Caller, included social security numbers, financial records, and details of a divorce proceeding.
“Mother Kim Stafford uncovered a Google Drive link when school board President Jann-Michael Greenberg sent her an email accusing her of ‘anti-Semitic’ comments against billionaire George Soros. Greenburg sent Stafford a screenshot of his desktop, which included a since-deleted Google Drive URL reviewed by the Daily Caller,” the outlet reported, adding: “The drive was available to anyone who had the link.”
The Daily Caller noted further:
Stafford shared the link with her friends, including mother Amanda Wray who told the Daily Caller she was “disgusted” when she saw that the drive included pictures of her 8 and 10-year-old daughters.
Parents have since dubbed the Google Drive an “online dossier.” The folders housed within the dossier are labeled “SUSD Wackos,” “Press Conference Psychos,” and “Anti Mask Lunatics,” among others. Included under “Press Conference Psychos” was a video that shows parents calmly holding signs that read “CRT is Racist” and “SUSD We Demand Transparency.”
The document hones in on one concerned parent organization called the “Community Advocacy Network,” or CAN. Founders and administrators of the group’s active Facebook page have created folders that contain screengrabs of their Facebook comments as well as photos of them with their husbands and even bits of financial records.
Wray, a concerned parent and leader of CAN, was prominently featured in the online dossier. The online document contains a credit deed of trust from Desert Financial Federal Credit Union — her mortgage lender — as well as information on an AirBNB property, and photos of her kids.
She told The DC that the first squabble she had with the school board occurred in January of this year when she ripped Greenburg for “making a political rant during a school board meeting that’s supposed to be nonpartisan.” She also said that she believes she has been unfairly doxed via the publication of very private and personal information.
“I’m just a parent. I’m not a public servant,” she told the outlet.
The DC adds:
Parents have largely been concerned with the school board’s handling of mask mandates and their alleged lack of transparency.
Other posts detailed in the Google Drive include a PDF with members and moderators in CAN’s Facebook group, the personal documents that show portions of parents’ social security numbers, parents sharing pro-Trump signs or Thomas Sowell quotes, and one parent’s divorce proceeding.
In addition, the dossier appeared to contain political opposition research pertaining to another concerned parent, Amy Carney, who has recently announced plans to run for the Scottsdale Unified School Board a year from now.
Increasingly around the country, parents have been pushing back on the left-wing agendas and curriculum being introduced in school districts around the country, and ground zero for the protests and pushback has been Loudoun County, Va.
There, parents have rebelled against school policies that include adding critical race theory to classroom curriculum and sexually inappropriate books to the school’s library.
Most recently, parents took former President Barack Obama to task after he blamed parents for fabricating concerns about CRT and other materials during a stump speech for failed Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe.
“We don’t have time to be wasting on these phony trumped-up culture wars, this fake outrage that right-wing media peddles to juice their ratings,” Obama said, going on to accuse now GOP Gov.-elect Glenn Youngkin of avoiding “serious problems that affect serious people” while saying that outrage over the actions of various school boards isn’t justified.
“Instead of stoking anger aimed at school boards and administrators, who are just trying to keep our kids safe… we should be making it easier for teachers and schools to give our kids the world-class education they deserve, and to do so safely while they are in the classroom,” Obama said.
Parents responded with outrage to the former president’s remarks.
“That is the most tone-deaf statement I have ever heard,” Brandon Michon, a father of three in Loudoun County, Va., told Fox News. “First and foremost, everything that has come up with the cover-up in Loudoun County has to do with a sexual assault on girls. To say that this is trumped-up as a political thing is laughable.”
