This isn't news, but it's news to me. Jim Galloway of the Atlanta-Journal Constitution has an interesting piece about the perceived vulnerability of Georgia School Superintendent Kathy Cox as she prepares to run for a third term next year. Here's the crazy part:
Last year, the state school superintendent and her husband, John Cox, filed for bankruptcy protection. Much of their $3.5 million debt is related to John Cox's home-building business in Fayette County.
Only a few months earlier, Kathy Cox had bagged $1 million from the Fox quiz show "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?" She promised to send the cash to state-run schools for the blind and deaf. Creditors are now gunning for the money in court.
Even leaving aside the bankruptcy part and the blind and deaf children angle, a prominent state official won $1 million on a reality show? Where was I when that happened? Are we sure the calendar says Thanksgiving and not April Fools'?
