Never Steal A School Board Member’s Condoms

This juicy excerpt may have made its way into PP last week, but it’s worth reviewing as the saga continues today, and likely on into the year, if we’re lucky.

Exhibit A: See how education operatives live in Clayton County… when they bother to live there at all. From the AJC’s new Entertainment & Education beat reporter, Megan Matteucci:

Clayton police learned about Haynes’ apparent Cobb County residence after discovering the board member was arrested Dec. 2 in a domestic dispute in Marietta.

Juan Green, who described himself as Haynes’ live-in boyfriend for five years, told Marietta police Haynes assaulted him.

Haynes, 37, returned to the couple’s Marietta apartment about 4 a.m. and started a fight over missing condoms, Green told police.

During the dispute, Haynes slapped Green, 31, on the face, pushed him to the floor and strangled him, according to a police report.

Marietta police arrested Haynes on charges of simple battery. He is scheduled to appear in Cobb Magistrate Court this morning.

In a written statement issued Wednesday night, Haynes said he was falsely arrested while trying to defend himself. Haynes said a friend attacked him during an dispute over a woman. He also disputed Green’s allegations about their relationship, calling it “an unmitigated lie without one scintilla of truth.”

On Thursday, Green said he would talk with a reporter only if he was paid. Otherwise, Haynes could speak for him, Green said.

Full circus act here. But wait! There’s more! Megan reports today that Haynes says he was treated unfairly when his fellow Clayton County School Board members clowns voted him off the island Monday night.

And yet another board clown says a mass resignation of the whole freak show would harm… the children.

Clayton County School Board – giving Metro Atlanta the gift of ongoing entertainment!

    wow–andre had posted some stuff about the clayton school board–but he never mentioned anything about it from this, ahem, angle…who knew a story about a school board contraversy could bring so much joy…

  2. LoyaltyIsMyHonor says:

    Wow, better than anything on TV. Somebody needs to create an anthology-based show that chronicles the bizarro aspects of politics and government. It could be Georgia-based, or even national-based. Are you listening Hollywood? If only Rod Serling were still alive.

  3. How embarrassing for the good people of Clayton. They sure need to correct this and the other problems they have through the ballot box if they can’t the school board to resign.

  4. Holly says:

    Given Ms. Matteucci’s beat, it begs the question of if this is classified as education or entertainment?

  5. Roy says:

    The Clayton school board really is a big damn mess! Someone pointed out to me no too long ago Georgia county school boards were appointed. They were well respected locals and looked up to in the community: like the guys and gals from Rotary.

  6. IndyInjun says:

    It says here that politicians are direct reflection of the majority of voters, for better or worse…

    “How embarrassing for the good people of Clayton.”

    The good people of Clayton have also elected a sheriff that continues to provide amusement.

    The good people of Clayton are the largest block of David Scott’s constituents.

    The DA and the and the BOC are almost as much fun.

    The good people of Clayton don’t do a very good job at the polls.

    My parents, life-long residents of the county, are beside themselves. I vented a bit here. It’s a shame.

    Sadly, my dad knows the man who committed suicide thanks to D.A. Scott.

  9. Bill Simon says:


    Contrary to whoever you got that info from, school boards in counties are ALL elected.

    It is only the State School Board that contains appointees, along with one elected official, the state school superintendent.

    The State Board isn’t that big (5-7 people, maybe?), so most of the control of schools in individual counties/districts is handled by elected school board members in each jurisdiction.

    BS: Roy said, “no too long ago Georgia county school boards were appointed.” Meaning that yes, now they are all elected.
