Praying Mathis: Detroit School Board President Asks to Retract Resignation After Scandal

We have been following the continuing scandals and criminal indictments of Detroit leaders. Now, we can add Detroit School Board President, Otis Mathis. Mathis is accused of fondling himself during meetings with Superintendent Theresa Gueyser. He apologized for his conduct, promised to seek help, and then resigned. He is now seeking to rescind his resignation.

Gueyser says that Mathis touched and fondled his private parts repeatedly in meetings between the two of them, including unzipping his pants.

He quickly sought to retract his resignation. However, given accounts of his conduct in prior meetings, it is not clear who would want to attend a meeting with him to discuss the issue.

There is an investigation into the allegations.

    “Fondling himself in business meetings? I should think that would mean all of BP’s Board and Tony Hayward would be resigning too.”

    you are wrong on that one, they weren’t fondling anything they were bending someone over a log and saying “squeal like a pig boy”. Although the tables have been turned somewhat.

    if the estimates can be believed that well is losing about 7 million dollars a day in oil revenues. Plus the loss of other revenues to the gulf coast and the wildlife habitat. Yeesh, we are all getting “bore hogged” by BP. I think that now stands for “Bottom Penetration” and I aint talking sea floor.

  2. YEEECH!!!!!

    There was a judge in Texas (where else) who was caught doing the same thing. Even in Texas, this was too much. The frightening thing is that this misconduct apparently went on for some time until he was caught “red handed” ;=))

    What?! You have got to be kidding!

    The dude says he needs help but exactly what kind of help is he looking for?

    What a freak!

  4. Isn’t Detroit the home of the Rosary Murder?

    Conyers is waiting sentencing in Federal Court.

    Kilpatrick is in Prison with no change of Bootcamp.

    All 5 of the Attorneys in the corruption trial are bing looked at by the Attorney Discipline Board.

    Now this, makes one wonder. Last but not least the Superintendent of one of the schools in River Rouge was convicted of selling the districts computers for 1.5 million.

    Can’t get much better than this….

    Fondling himself in business meetings? I should think that would mean all of BP’s Board and Tony Hayward would be resigning too.
