when elephants fight the

when elephants fight the grass looses...and I don't mean to support anything the notorious Tony Smith does but I gotta say... http://www.chaunceybaileyproject.org/2009/10/23/former-bakery-associate-... "Nedir Bey’s birth name is Victor Rene Foster. A June 2009 filing lists Bey as Solar Eclipse’s CEO and Natalie Bayton as corporate secretary. Bayton also was listed as a board member and manager in a proposal Bey filed in August to create a charter middle school at the same San Pablo Avenue address that’s on his Solar Eclipse business card; he withdrew the charter-school petition Sept. 2 without explanation.... Besides Nedir Bey’s $108,000 salary, E.M Health also had paid salaries to his wife and three of Yusuf Bey’s wives, who were receiving welfare at the same time. Other questionable expenses flagged by city staff included large consulting fees, expensive furniture and a leased Cadillac. With liens and interest, the city says the firm owes more than $1.5 million but never made a loan payment.
All this transpired after Nedir Bey and other bakery associates had been charged in 1994 with torturing and robbing a man with whom they had a real estate dispute; he pleaded no contest to a felony false-imprisonment charge and received a six-month home-detention term.
A Bey family member recently said the beating and E.M. Health episodes led to Nedir Bey’s ouster from the bakery around 2000, yet most contributions to his 2002 Oakland City Council campaign were money orders issued to Bey family members listing the bakery headquarters as their address; those contributions leveraged $14,178 in public matching funds"

It's a shame the gutting of the public school system under these capitalist front groups leaves the kids so defenseless.
