(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- The Denver School Board Director who was accused back in April of sexually assaulting more sixty-two illegal alien students announced on Wednesday that he plans to resume the full duties of his position despite the investigation still going on.
In June, Anderson announced that he would temporarily step back from everyday board functions as the investigation proceeded. However, in his announcement this week, Anderson said the investigation had “dragged well past the timeline that was agreed to” and “no credible evidence has emerged.”
In an open letter to the Denver Public Schools, Anderson said that he has always “categorically denied” the allegations which is why he agreed to cooperate with the investigation. At the time he temporarily stepped down, Anderson said that he was told that the investigation would be completed in thirty days. But then it was extended by an additional thirty days.
Sixty days to investigate sixty-two claims of sexual assault hardly seems excessive.
But for Anderson, that is just too long. He also complained that this investigation conducted by a private law firm has now “drifted into vastly new areas” – namely, investigators are looking into Anderson’s past before he worked for the Denver Public Schools or was elected to the DPS Board.
Anderson, who is twenty-two years old, said he would “remain committed to engaging in a transparent and fair process,” but he would no longer wait until it has concluded before returning to his job.
In his letter to the district, Anderson again denied the allegations and claimed that “no credible evidence” has emerged from the ongoing investigation. Nor has Anderson been arrested or charged, “or even contacted by any law enforcement” about the “false claims against me.”
That could be because the investigation by the private law firm is still going on.
Naturally Anderson uses his letter to portray himself as a victim. He claims that the investigation into these accusations made him contemplate suicide. But not because he felt guilty, he adds in his letter, but because he “could no longer bear the weight” of the community thinking he was a sexual predator.
Anderson adds that he wants to make sure suicide prevention tools are made available to students in the district. He also writes that there is too much important work that remains to be done for him to “be away any longer.”
Whether parents and the district agree that Anderson’s work is too important for him to “be away any longer” as he continues to be under investigation for sexual assault remains to be seen.
