What was really so important this summer that the tireless victim of the Denver school board, Tay Anderson, couldn’t wait until an investigation into the sexual assault allegations against him was completed?
Nothing, according to the school board statement released this week after Anderson announced that three months was too long for investigators to complete their findings.
The board does not meet until its retirement in mid-August, which is when the investigation is expected to be completed anyway.
If anything, it appears that Tay’s statement that he has returned to work comes just as the investigation is expanding.
From Tay’s letter to his fellow school board members:
“Despite the original agreements on the scope and timing of this investigation between ILG and myself, the independent investigation has drifted into vastly new areas, including a period of time when you were not even an adult, a DPS employee, or an elected member of the DPS Board. “
That certainly raises a lot of questions, the main one of them:
Why is the investigation expanding?
What did the researchers find that led them down these paths and delayed their findings?
During Tay’s press conference this week, they generally looked down on potential victims who have yet to come forward.
What warning is this that Tay’s powerful allies could destroy their lives? Witness tampering?
Tay’s denials are becoming inconsistent. Initially he said that if he had done something wrong, he wanted to make amends and have restorative justice.
Now he says he did nothing.
With Tay going back to work full time and with nothing on his schedule until (checks notes) after the investigation is completed, how will the time pass?
I could resign from the Denver school board investigation and run for Denver City Council:

Or just spread the buzz to get your fans to tell you it’s cool and you should run.
So far, there have been no buyers.
