Hoovergate Strikes Back

From the Birmingham News "breaking news" blog at
Hoover's school board voted tonight to make public in full at 9 a.m. Saturday a report on a special investigation into possible academic improprieties involving Hoover High School's athletics program.

The board voted 4-1 to release the report. Only board member Bill Veitch voted against the decision.

The 68-page report will be posted on-line and at the Hoover Public Library, board Vice President Suzy Baker said. Copies also will be available at the school system's central office.
Good for the Hoover board. Should make very interesting reading. Here's an updated story from Thursday's News.

Oh, and that lone vote against releasing the report? That was the same guy who arranged to have felony charges against Alabama linebacker Juwan "Ice Cream Cone" Simpson reduced to misdemeanors last year, conveniently in time for football season.
