Philadelphia-Area Educators Fired For Social Media Posts
Francis Malofiy returns to the Dom Giordano Program with both Amy Sacks and Ashley Bennett after joining the show yesterday to tell the story of two local educators who were removed from their posts following social media posts. First, Amy Sacks recaps the situation that found her fired as a Principal in the Perkiomen Valley School District after she posted to social media that she’d rather vote for a potato than Democratic nominee Joe Biden. Sacks reveals that she’s upset that she was fired, but the issue is more so the lack of due process offered by her superiors. Then, attorney Francis Malofiy explains why the case will be tried in Philadelphia courts rather than Montgomery County or federal courts. After, Ashley Bennett joins in to tell her story, in which she was forced to resign following a post questioning whether or not Black Lives Matter really believe that all black lives matter due to their treatment of black police officers and conservatives.
