Final Dover Board Member Gone

Lauri Lebo, who did such a brilliant job covering the Dover trial for the York Daily Record, sent along this little item from the other local paper. Heather Geesey, the last remaining Dover school board member who supported the pro-ID policy (she wasn’t up for reelection a year and a half ago when the rest were voted out) has lost her seat on the board. Geesey was the one who famously (and bizarrely) told a reporter after the vote was taken to adopt the ID policy that she wasn’t worried about the school board being sued because she had faith in the district’s lawyer. The same lawyer who had told the board that if they went ahead with the policy they would get sued and they would lose. It may have been the weirdest statement from a situation filled with weird statements.

    She’s lucky she just got voted off the island. Her malfeasance and stupidity cost the tax payers of Dover $1.0 milllion dollars,

    $1.0 million may not be a lot of money for Dr. Evil or the DI, but that is a heck of a lot of textbooks and teacher salaries.

    Heather Geesey’s testamony during the Dover trial may well be my favorite part of the transcript. It was jaw-droppingly unbelievable. She was completely ignorant, and proud of it. She didn’t seem to see any problem with inserting a concept she didn’t understand (and saw no reason to attempt to figure out) into a class she probably couldn’t pass (but so what–she clearly didn’t give a spit about the biology class). Such incredible inanity just can’t be believed until you read the words directly.
