22 Aug 2015:  Tracee Wilkins tweets on antics of recently indicted Baker school board appointee
  • Breaking: The Pr. George's School Board Member accused of falsifying documents for free school lunch for her kids wants back on the board.​
  • According to Lynn Mundey, she rescinded her resignation but the chair has not accepted it. Sources say he did not have the power to do that.
  • Without board approval.
  • Schools released a statement saying it's acted appropriately and this is currently being handled by legal representation for both parties.
  • Mundey is one of the members appointed by the County Executive under the hybrid school board of elected and appointees.
  • She's facing criminal prosecution for the free school lunch accusations along with other employees of GAO who live in the County.
  • Comments: 
  • The chair, mentioned above, also appointed by Rushern Baker, is Baker's former brother-in-law.This new affair is not surprising considering the long record of cronyism, corruption, and criminal activity in school management since Baker first started interfering in school management over a decade ago.

9 Jan 2014:  Rushern Baker continues politicization of "non-partisan" Board of Education
     Despite his broken promise to not try to take over the schools, and despite the fact that the Prince George's County Board of Education is legally a non-partisan body, Rushern Baker today swears in an appointed Democratic Party political operative replacing a former elected non-partisan member of the board.  Baker and the anti-democracy legislators who conspired with him should be ashamed, but, as we know, OUR legislators know no shame.
