well she didnt work and drove a brand new tahoe. she isnt innocent. she did this. Thats why she pulled her sweet child out of the school. She is a terrible person once you get past the fake. She is a very sick girl. I feel sorry for her family to have to endure such a humiliation. my heart aches for her children.

Then tell me this, why can't the DA show any proof? Records from the PTA have been subpoenaed and nothing proves her guilty. She's being the scape goat for the other poeple who were actully embezzling the money since she was the treasurer. This will be dissolved and dismissed on Thursday 7/16 you'll see.

A Long, Long time ago The Greedy White Man figured since Slavery was Abolished he could go South and Exploit the poor Mexican peasant and pay us Slave Wages to do his dirty work.
Let's create a system that would put more Money in our pockets says the White Man. How about green cards so it makes us look good and friendly. Little did he know that somewhere down the line there would be a price to pay for his greediness?
The price has been many lost Jobs to the descendants and friends of the low paid Slaves. Also the wages have been greatly affected. Some Good Jobs that used to get $25 an hour go for $12 an hour with the same quality. Don't forget The overburden on the White Man's health system. We will continue to take your jobs and make more of your Daughter's pregnant and your grand Babies brown so you might as well get used to it and quit crying the blues
You all brought this upon yourselves by your greed and Heartlessness. I guess you will never learn. The more it continues the more some of us get to make more Money that know how to capitalize on it
Ha Ha HA
That's an interesting yet delusional and toxic perpective Pedro, the Mexican "poor slaves" from a severly disfunctional third world culture who don't have the educational foundation or desire to aculturate by becoming member's (legal) of the greatest Country in the History of the World are destined to continue mowing my lawn, how proud you must be...Oh, and some bad news for you Pedro, "e verify" was just passed, as well as stiff legal penalities for the unscrupulous employeers who hire these wellfare "sponges". The Calif economy is now all but bankrupt largely due your "poor Mexican slaves" abusing the generosities of this still great Country ..There is a quiet revolt building, and the door for the free loading "Mexican slaves" will soon be SLAMMED SHUT!So sad, too bad Pedro...Party's over, you'll see.....It's comming!!

Well, Ms. Texas, or should I say MRS. Texas?
You do NOT know her, you know OF her through an inappropriate relationship. And shame on you for wishing those kids mother to be gone from their lives. That's what is heartless! Your motives are disgusting!!! I hope no one ever writes about you and some of the bad decisions you have made on the internet for your child to one day stumble upon and read.

When my husband and I were cubmasters of our local cub scout troop years ago, the treasurer stole all the money to pay her personal bills. I wanted to make a police report but other parents were sympathetic to her plight and voted to just remove her from her post as treasurer. She later became treasurer to the school PTA and did the same thing and they also choose not to press charges. I have heard of many instances where the PTA or brownie troop has their money stolen by a parent in charge of the cash yet they get away with it because other parents feel sorry for them. IMHO, steeling from kids is about as low as one can go and parents need to stop protecting these thieves.
You too could have been liable. You need to report these crooks!

I think the reason Alicia Philipps was able to steal so much money because she was indirectly protected by Stowers principal. They were friends.

Alicia-Bizio Phillips is giving the PTA a cashiers check for over $67,000...that seems like an admission of guilt. Here is a great question...where did this thief get the $67,000 to pay back to the PTA??? Does anyone know more about this?
