Randy Dotinga calls Sweetwater board members "victims" for pleading guilty to corruption charges

Voice of San Diego's Randy Dotinga writes in today's Morning Report, "Many of the departed [from the Sweetwater Union High School District board] are victims of the massive South Bay corruption scandal, which ensnared several education officials and contractors."

Victims?  Hardly. 

While it is true that most of the departed board members pled guilty to small offenses, it does not follow that they are "victims". 

It would be more accurate to say that the District Attorney didn't want to expose at trial too many of the antics of public school officials in San Diego County.  The obvious danger of having trials for board members would be that big honchos in the San Diego County education establishment might be exposed in proceedings that were designed to target mostly Mexicans and Democrats in South Bay.

Randy Dotinga seems to be the only person at Voice of San Diego who honestly voices the opinion of the VOSD major donors and executives.  VOSD has been, at least since it got rid of Emily Alpert, a big supporter of the honchos at San Diego County Office of Education and their loyal supporters among school officials around the county.
