Tom Horne accepts bribes in order not to enforce his own law of Banning Ethnic Studies and auditing teachers with thick accents who teach in public schools. Under the no child left behind act Tom Horn has Audited American citizens (teachers) within TUSD and had them removed from classrooms. Also under his own law of banning Ethnic Studies programs in Arizona Tom Horne has turned a blind eye to Sonaran Science Academy who promotes Turkish nationalism through language studies, Turkish dance clubs, Turkish Art classes and a Turkish club for both parents and students. Sonoran Science Academy is a public charter and is not exempt to the law. Numerous complaints have gone to the The Arizona State Board of Charter Schools which Sonoran Science Academy sits on the Board of Directors. Which is one way they protect themselves from complaints, and complaints to the Board of Education has also been submitted. Not to mention letters and emails written to Tom Horne about this school. So why would a school donate campaign funds to the one person that could effect the staffing and moral of there school? I guess one can buy a little protection from the wrath of Tom Horne.

As a Mexican American born in Arizona, I resent the witch hunt that Tom Horne has been on against my culture and the Hispanic race. Tom has systematically worked to dismantle any ethnic studies on Mexican or Native Americans in the public schools. Yet, he has allowed the Charter public Schools like this foreign ran Sonoran Science to bring in h1-B Visa unqualified workers in.
NOW we find out that Tom Horne is acceptng bribes from this School? WTF? I guess it shouldn't surprise any of us.
Tom Horne needs to go, he has proven he is biased and passes laws that hurt some of us but passes over the ones that pad his wallet. Does Arizona have a place in politics for this kind of garbage?
Native Americans and Mexican Americans built Arizona we are the indigenous people of the state.
