"Don’t get queasy about John Deasy"
And what does Petrilli base his opinion on? Decent numbers, and he met Deasy once. No argument with either, but it's not much of a comfort in the face of other evidence.
Maybe Deasy is a terrific guy who just got a little greedy and was seduced by Felner. He would not have been the first to be sullied by that guy.
Deasy responsed perfectly:
If the university made errors in the awarding of the degree, I do hope they rescind it. My responsibility is to do everything I was advised and told to do. If I was advised wrong and given wrong information, the university needs to take responsibility for that. I certainly would not want anything unearned.
But talk is cheap. There is no way Deasy could have been unaware he was getting a sweetheart deal - and he took it - he took it, put it on his resume, shopped it and signs his name with a Ph D.
This should only be a concern for those who insist on ethical behavior.
Has Deasy renounced his doctorate and taken his diploma off the wall? Has he acted on his pitch perfect words?
In the wake of a the last superintendent's scandal - where former Prince Georges County Superintendent Andre J. Hornsby, was convicted of wire fraud, witness and evidence tampering, and obstruction of justice some Marylanders may prefer to avoid any appearance of wrongdoing and chose to try again.
