Things are looking worse and worse for the leadership of Loudoun County, Va. public schools, where the superintendent told a school board meeting that the district had no record of any sexual assaults in school bathrooms after just such an assault – on a girl by a cross-dressing boy – had been reported.
Now an internal email has surfaced, reports Maryland’s WTOP News, in which the same superintendent actually acknowledges just such an assault.
The victim’s father was arrested and charged after making a scene at a raucous June 22 school board meeting. At that same meeting, school superintendent Scott Ziegler had proclaimed: “the predator transgender student or person simply does not exist,” adding that “we don’t have any record of assaults occurring in our restrooms.”
The newly released email, however, proves the Loudoun superintendent did in fact get reports of sexual assaults in school bathrooms. On May 28, the same day the female student at Stone Bridge High School – whose father was later arrested – said she was sexually assaulted in a bathroom, Ziegler wrote: “The purpose of this email is to provide you with information regarding an incident that occurred at Stone Bridge HS. This afternoon a female student alleged that a male student sexually assaulted her in the restroom. The LCSO is investigating the matter.”
The school board voted in August to allow transgender students to use school bathrooms matching their gender identity, going along with “guidelines” from the Democrat-controlled Virginia legislature to protect, enable and even promote transgenderism in public schools.
In March, the Christian Action Network filed a lawsuit against Virginia’s school policy that allows boys to enter female bathrooms and locker rooms without providing any evidence of being transgender. On July 27, Lynchburg Circuit Court Judge Frederick Watson dismissed CAN’s lawsuit due to lack of standing.
The May 28 assault was not made public until the victim’s father told the Daily Wire that the same 15-year-old male charged in his daughter’s attack was later accused of groping a different girl, at Broad Run High School, on Oct. 6.
