Now we have heard it all!
Mehlville School District chairman Tom Diehl has "misplaced the paperwork" for the Restore the Pride committee's post-election finance report. It would have been more believable if Diehl said "the dog ate my homework". Even more troubling is the fact that the "Pride" committee's treasurer, Jack Jordan, turned all of his political campaign committee's to district superintendent Terry Noble and BOE chairman Tom Diehl.
Mr. Noble has no business involving himself in the political machinations of the "Restore the Pride" committee's operations. But the deeper question is, did Jack Jordan visit Mr. Noble on Mehlville School District property to deliver the campaign documents? Did Jordan walk into Noble's office and hand-off these records? Did Noble then summon Tom Diehl to pick them up at the district office? Or, did Noble deliver the reports to Diehl's home and charge the district for milage? Perhaps another ethics complaint is in order to initiate an investigation by the Missouri Ethics Commission.
In light of Terry Noble and Tom Diehl's handing of the political campaign to shove Proposition C down our throats and their inability to comply with state law, we think that resignations should be forthcoming from both officials. What is sad is that Jack Jordan and Jeff Clobes will be responsible for coming up with $4000 (or more) in fines for not doing their jobs as campaign committee treasurers. Jordan, Clobes, Diehl and Noble all have one thing in common. None of them are leaders in any sense of the word.
