"Continue to improve throughout his administration. He advanced charter schools, He advanced private schools he helped to consolidate and merge. Georgia had a ton of small colleges, state run small colleges they couldn't sustain themselves and study, Purdue orchestrated the plan to merge some of those colleges together so that all of them together could survive. They combined resources. He structured this deal as governor. He knew the education of the higher education system of the state of Georgia so well because he had been in such powerful positions in the state Legislature overseeing these things. He got it. He becomes governor. Leaves office. Donald Trump gets elected in Donald Trump put Sonny Perdue in as the secretary of agriculture for the United States, and so they produce stays the whole four years. As secretary of agriculture. He brings a roll pioneers real broadband initiatives. He helps farmers around the country deals with the devastation of the southeast from the various hurricanes that have come through. Remarkable career as secretary of Agriculture was able to not just downsize the department but also move a lot of its bureaucrat employees out of Washington, D. C. He was able to get a lot of careerists out of Washington and move them closer to the farmers in the Heartland, where they actually mean it's their job to do with farmers, and he said, We should have these people closer to farm country and he moved him out. A lot of them quit and he was able to save money. But a lot of them did move out and you've got an Agriculture department. Now that is closer to the farmers that it actually works with. He did a very good job. There is a vacancy in Georgia. For the Board of Regents to be the head of the Board of Regents in Georgia for the university system. Now the board of Regions in Georgia has a history of hiring people who are not academics. And that's very important here. They have a history of hiring people who are not academics. Who have not been in the the higher ed system to oversee the higher ed system in Georgia. They have hired competent business people to oversee it. Because, at the end of the day, the head of the board of Regents the chancellor, they're involved in making sure that they meet the bottom line that kids are getting a good education. The bureaucracy is not too unwieldy and that the whole system works. Sonny Perdue would like the job. The governor of the state of Georgia would like him to have the job. And a good portion of the board of Regions would like Sonny Perdue to have the job and he cannot get the job. At this moment. At least they have hired an interim Head of the board of Regions. Why For one reason only. For one reason only. They gussied it up. They fancied up. They've come up with all sorts of excuses. But the bottom line is there is one reason Sonny Perdue, the former governor of Georgia, who oversaw the consolidation and survival and financial health of academic institutions of higher education in the state for years before working for Donald Trump. The only reason he's being deprived of this is because he worked For Donald Trump. That's it. He's being punished. Because he worked. For the president of the United States and did a remarkably good job at it. And it's not just the professors in the university system who were upset. The academics in charge of the credentialing bodies who have never had a problem in the past, with the state of Georgia Hiree non academics to be in charge of the system. Those credential embodies goes well, you You can't have a non academic. I mean, Yeah, sure. He's got a doctorate in medicine. But is he really that smart? It's remarkable that we're here in this country that one can be blackballed. For being a competent steward of taxpayer resources. Just because the president of the United States under whom you served with someone the academics don't like. But the bottom line is there. So he has thus far been deprived. Of being chancellor. Uh, this is this is remarkable. Here. A faculty leader, the president of the Georgia Conference of the American Association, University Professors is one of those people. Who is upset. The current officer, Steve Wrigley, is set to retire at the end of the month, he told a group of faculty leaders earlier this year. The job is complex. The state has 26 institutions of different sizes, levels of needs, not to mention distinct types of faculty staff and students. This is an enormous system budget built on the infrastructure, personnel and technology realities of these schools, and the chancellor must also helped craft the economic, civic and educational impact of curricula. Degree in brand. The next chancellor has to understand complexities in general and have a firm grounding and higher education specific complexities. They could only get such an understanding from being part of an academic institution. For many years, That's BS. And I know that's BS because Georgia itself has had very competent chancellor's who were not inside academic systems. This is a lie by academics who don't want someone who worked in the Trump administration being in charge. But this man, Sonny Perdue, not Presided over the state of Georgia under which the chancellors of the university served. But he also helped save those institutions financially when he was governor and oversaw the biggest federal bureaucracy outside of the Department of Homeland Security and Department of Defense in Washington, D. C. The Department of Agriculture in Washington on the civilian side has the most unwieldy bureaucracy. It handles farmers and food safety and all sorts of of different.

"So eliot spitzer was a very popular governor of new york and it came out that eliot spitzer during a six month span had at least seven or eight liaisons with women from an agency and paid them more than fifteen thousand dollars. According to published reports investigators alleged spitzer paid up to eighty thousand dollars for prostitutes over a period of several years while he was attorney. General and later as governor spitzer first to retention of federal investigators when his bank reported suspicious money transfers under the anti laundering provisions of the bank secrecy act and the patriot act. Eliot spitzer was forced to resign after. That member. Anthony weiner another new york politician that almost became mayor. You see people forget. this anthony. weiner had his scandal with whom abedine and hillary clinton and then he had attempted comeback where he was actually leading in the polls to become mayor of new york until it became came out that he was not selfless not correcting his behavior. Put it that way. The issue of politicians under scandal is nothing new for the democrats are nervous and they should be is that if a real investigation especially from the media was done into the nursing homes into what happened in new york andrew cuomo cuomo political machine would be ruined. I want you to imagine if the new york times did one tenth amount of reporting into the nursing home scandal of andrew cuomo they did around donald trump's visits to bedminster and mar-a-lago which actually impacted the future of our republic the livelihood of the citizens of our country. And so if you look at up andrew cuomo online you don't see anything to do with the nursing homes instead. It's all about the metoo scandal. Which i'm not saying it's not legitimate but it's not overly shocking and of course the groups that will push the metoo movement planned parenthood women's march national abortion rights action league american association university women national latina institute for reproductive justice. I'll silent on governor cuomo's allegations but the playbook that cuomo is now is a sleight of hand that he learned from governor. Ralph northern of virginia where you distract from the legitimate scandal that is in policy has real implications.

Illinois merchandise at any of the locations that they list while supplies last Kelly I I wonder if Elizabeth Warren's presidential campaign will run the same buyback deal anyway while that's going on college campuses the of an unserious nature there is a serious issue about the instance of sexual assault between professors and students this a piece by John Roski real clear investigations dot com not the male rape culture on campus that the left focuses on which is male students and female students this is about administrative staff and faculty and this was something called from a survey by left wing group the association of American universities that said John ruski on earth and it speaks to perhaps a systemic problem between those in positions of authority on college campuses and the students the thirty three institutions participating of the many respondents response and responded from hundred eighty one thousand students last year only twenty six percent of the women at the thirty three participating institutions responded so the incidence of allegations of sexual assault could be even higher than reported for more on this for pleased to be joined by the aforesaid author of the article John Orozco award winning journalist this piece of real clear investigations dot com buried a bad faculty report card on college sex abuse John thanks for joining us appreciate it what early on just kind of detail what you found in this age you study that has really not receive any profile other than from you and you know put it in context of what's being discussed at the collegiate level last fall the American Association universities issue needs campus sexual climate survey they highlight the main points of the survey and the main point of the survey essentially reiterate that frequently all cited an oft disputed statistic that one out of four women can expect to be assaulted or raped when they're in college during the four years of college and okay so that's a very high number and it suggests a crisis if you proportions and so inside the same report but not featured so it's not featured in the executive summary I stayed buried because it's hot it's a little hard to find and it takes experts to explain it our statistics that indicate that the students also reported female students male students and others are also there's other other categories like LGBTQ categories for people who have different identities but I just focused on women just because more women died they reported is that some of these incidents a small percentage of them the perpetrators were faculty instructors professors administrators and researchers are other people who are associated or affiliated with the university it appears that this is that it appears as percentages and they're very small percentages thank you a point three percent zero point five percent and you can't really tell yeah you can't you can't tell how many incidents are really involved but I have someone who's an expert in recent surveys work it out for me and it looks like it comes out from the thirty three university they had a several hundred in such incidents and we again we can't really tell what happened we can't tell if the student is reporting something that was investigated by the title nine office and we crawled out from lack of evidence or if the student reported that the police on a professor was arrested for it the instructor which is a graduate student I don't it just wasn't graduate student and then to graduate students dating and when the student reported B. incident said you have the question is what's this person's affiliation university so the person affiliation university could be constructed it could be a kia and it could be a grad student so we don't really know any of the details but there appears to be something else going on and we we have corroborating evidence just the news coverage if you do a Google search on sexual misconduct Shakopee professor you'll see lots of articles because ever since me too in twenty seventeen or something to blow up all over the world twenty seventeen our students began coming forward the stories about professors and the stories are kind of similar to what you heard about the Catholic Church they were these serial predatory professors and some of them forced to resign but previously they were just moved around you know they move from college to college or day there are you know behavior without playing very difficult agrees with it just wouldn't come forward because no one will believe that it's in the story it's interesting because it reminds me a little bit of the shapeshifter report from almost two decades ago that focused on the incidence of sexual abuse at the K. through twelve level in public schools around the country caliphate shaft an academic who did the study and suggested that the incidence of sexual assault of students by adults in K. through twelve was significantly higher than anything seen in the Catholic Church and it's sort of you know sort of also was shunned to the side and then I'll send a decade well more than a decade plus later but discography in for example recently looked at the last five years of sexual assault allegations in the Chicago public school and found out for more than five hundred credible incidents according to the city of Chicago legal department credit they determine credible accusations of sexual assault in the Chicago public schools and it's just it's it's interesting how certain individuals and certain institutions and certain institutions as well as in certain institutions don't seem to get the scrutiny that other people do and and these are people obviously was sensitive important jobs in terms of educating children whether you're talking K. through twelve or higher at right so you know we when you have these incidents between students it's very easy to envision how you could you know house didn't cross the line but it's also very easy to envision how you could have perfectly legitimate sexual encounters between students right but with professors and students faculty and students administrators and you know research and grown ups essentially it's it's hard to envision exactly what would be legitimate in fact some universities are banning any kind of dating any kind of sexual contact between students and professors even if right now you're not supposed to be dating your own students but you can date a colleagues students right but some universities are just moving through to them because outright bans of the big universities are beginning finally to move on this issue and so you could see that in the news coverage so this is just very recent four and the case the case in in in with the university obviously these are statutory rape cases like it is a K. through twelve but still all kinds of ethical problems arise with a culture where that's allowed Schneider also took issues even if it's somebody else's sacramental like talk to some of these that particular did make a pretty compelling case that they have records have been some reports on the conditions of analysis even if the professor is gaining a student and it's not it and that is not be professor students to somebody else and everybody can see that the professors stating the student that makes it awkward for any other student willing to chat with that student about their professors because they could just get back to the professor who Mister entertaining and it just creates a very awkward atmosphere and so they want to create an outright ban on the other hand you know these are adults and they've been marriages between professors and students very happy happy marriages that lasted for decades and so you know once you get into the business of banning and regulating human sexual conduct it creates yeah other conditions but the very tough situation John Marasco award winning journalist John.
