Tom Scovill has lost his mind. He supports Pam Hill and has given her campaign money, he is now chasing that bad money with his good reputation. I appreciate that he is using my website to do so but I kinda feel like I need to respond.
Point by point…
I listened to the Jackson-Clayton interview several times.
It seems to me that the only threat that Clayton saw was one to his business reputation that might arise from his meeting with an AEA rep / Huntsville teacher at a time when he was marketing his services to Huntsville City Schools, services that were opposed by elements of the AEA.
He met with her to talk to her about questions SHE wanted to raise. She asked for the meeting and prepared the notes about what she wanted to discuss (I have them) and her resume/cover letter, which is a weird thing to bring to a meeting SHE asked for.
Clayton seems to have been concerned that hiring Hill, even meeting with her, could be construed as an unethical attempt by him to coopt the AEA / teacher opposition to his services.
He thought it was so unethical that he agreed to the meeting and then when Hill threatened him, he reported it to her supervisor. Smart take.
It sounds like he messaged Wardynski to advise him of the meeting, which he described as an ethical gray area, to preserve his business reputation, making sure that Wardynski knew the job solicitation was Hill’s doing.
This is an insane conspiracy theory.
The AEA was opposing Appleton before the meeting and continued to do so afterwards. Clayton says he has no reason to believe that opposition had anything to do with Hill.
Yes, we know this. Pam Hill offered to soften the resistance IF CLAYTON GAVE HER MONEY.
Jackson led the witness throughout the interview using the word threat. Clayton evaded that word until the very end of the interview.
Calm down, Matlock.
No where in the interview or elsewhere does Clayton speak of a complaint to either Wardynski or the DA. It is not clear why Wardynski mentioned a DA complaint in his message to our favorite talk show host.
Clayton said he didn’t want to make an ethics complaint. Wardynski is on record saying as such.
I conclude that the only threat Clayton was concerned about was one to the professional reputation of his company, a threat that might arise depending on how people viewed his meeting with Hill. Clayton messaged Wardynski to nip that threat in the bud.
Your conclusion is insane, requires this to be a conspiracy 4 years in the making and and makes NO sense.
Occam a friend. He has a razor and I and I try not to offend him.
You sound like a moron and if you think that is Occam’s Razor, you should stop following politics.
