Beverly Tucker has moved far beyond her pals at the ACLU

Here's an interesting post from CALIFORNIA TEACHERS BLOG by Jane Swanson:

I figured that California Teachers Association and its head counsel Beverly Tucker were just a run-of-the-mill union and run-of-the-mill lawyer: dishonest and abusive to members for two simple reasons: (1) it was in their personal interest; and (2) they knew they could get away with it.

Today I noticed something interesting on the Internet. Beverly Tucker was chosen multiple times to sit on the Board of Directors of the Northern California ACLU.

After some digging, I found that this is the same Beverly Tucker who refused to defend a teacher who was dismissed for filing grievances and a lawsuit!

I am in shock. Was it all an act, Beverly, pretending to be interested in constitutional rights? Was the ACLU a stepping stone for you? Was it all a publicity stunt for CTA?

It's long past time for CVESD and CVE to get out of Castle Park Elementary

Castle Park Elementary has gone from bad to worse over the years.

Teachers interested more in personal power than in the education of children became so bold that they committed crimes and got the teachers union and the district to cover up those crimes at a cost to taxpayers of several $100,000's.

Then these same teachers carried on like innocent victims when five of them were transferred. In the press, they badmouthed the best principal they ever had.

They demonstrated with the help of Chula Vista Educators Presidents Jim Groth, Gina Boyd, and a PTA President who embezzled $20,000. Now, there is no PTA, after two (2!) separate embezzlements.

The school has prevented the English Learner parents from giving their lawfully required input since Ollie Matos left.

Time for a housecleaning, folks.

Why not let Edison Schools come in and put this school in order?

Lawsuit against CTA head counsel Beverly Tucker for spoliatation of documents and perjury

Looking at the evidence presented in Maura Larkins' May 2007 lawusuit against Beverly Tucker and Michael D. Hersh, California Teachers Association lawyers, it appears that these lawyers suborned perjury and destruction of documents to undermine the defamation case of a member of CTA!

I sure hope all unions aren't this unethical. The scary thing is that this union is one of the most powerful in California, right after the prison guards union. They seem to have the same wall of secrecy that prison guards have. I sure would like to see teachers and prison guards working on separate planes. We want different things for our kids and our prisoners.

This case is related to the Robin Donlan/Michael Carlson/Linda Watson Castle Park Elementary case. Tucker and Hersh represented Chula Vista Educators President Gina Boyd, who was a personal friend of Robin Donlan.

“Castle Park Five” teacher Robin Donlan needs our help again!

CVESD teacher Robin Donlan is under investigation by the FBI, SEC, US Justice Department. She needs our help.

Robin Donlan has needed our help many times before:

1. Chula Vista Educators President Gina Boyd was a true friend to Robin Donlan, committing perjury and destroying documents to cover up misdemeanors Donlan committed in 2000 and 2001. Current CVE President Jim Groth helped out with a terrific grievance hoax.

2. Yet again, Gina and Jim proved to be reliable in 2004 when Chula Vista Elementary School District Superintendent Lowell Billings tried to return Castle Park Elementary to normal functioning after the crime wave initiated by Robin. Gina and Jim got the transfer ruled illegal! What a way to help children!

3. Now Robin needs help with a little securities fraud. It seems her husband transferred 700,000 shares of fraudulent stock options to her. Then Robin and Vence Donlan bought the stock and resold it at $7.7 million profit. She’s being investigated by the FBI, SEC, IRS and the Department of Justice. Who will pay Robin’s attorney bills now that her assets are frozen?

4. Cheryl Cox, Pamela Smith, Patrick Judd, Bertha Lopez and Larry Cunningham spent several $100,000's of the public’s money to defend Robin Donlan regarding crimes she committed at CVESD. They are our best hope to save Robin from the claws of justice once again.

5. Also, we hope that Chula Vista Educators will step into the lurch as they have so often before. Monica Sorenson, Joyce Abrams and all the rest of the board of directors have always gone along with instructions from CTA attorney Michael Hersh—and they keep quiet about it, too. There shouldn’t be any problem at all!

6. The Castle Park Family is planning a big rally to raise money for Robin. We hope Bob Filner and Jill Galvez will be there, just like they were for Robin’s 2004 rally.

7. I’m sure former Castle Park PTA presidents Felicia Starr and Kim Simmons won’t miss it. They have nothing to fear now that Bonnie Dumanis has declined to press charges regarding the 2004-2005 embezzlement of $20,000 from the PTA.
