Pro-Mask Virginia School Board Member has Hissy Fit After Being Called Out for Maskless Photo
Chairwoman Susan Kass: “I’m done. She leaves or I leave.”
Montgomery County in Virginia had a crazy school board meeting the other day. Alecia Vaught committed a cardinal sin: she showed off photos of a maskless pro-mask school board member.
Not just any school board member! The pictures belonged to Chairwoman Susan Kass.
Vaught stood her ground, even when Kass wanted an officer to escort her out all for showing everyone that Kass is nothing but a hypocrite.
Kass didn’t get her way so she threw a temper tantrum.

Here is the beginning of the video. Vaught called out the school board for following one governor’s mask orders while disagreeing with the new governor. Gee. I wonder why. She also has a major problem with the school board not wanting to talk to the parents:
Senate bill 739, as you guys probably know, is going to be signed into law very soon, so we’re taking the power out of your hands and putting it back with the parents the way it should be. And it’s very concerning that you guys would take the power away from the parents.
When you were saying, introducing the public address comment, you said this is the time we get to hear from the students, from the staff and from the community members. You didn’t mention parents. Not one bit.
I think that’s a big issue for Montgomery County because you guys do not like the parents. That’s how I feel because you’re taking the choice away from the parents and you’re trying to take it and put it into your hands for financial reasons, I don’t know. You’re taking it away from us.
We sat here last year and listened to you guys preach to us about Gov. Northam’s executive orders and how we must follow them. You guys remember that? We do. Here’s a governor who comes into office, but yet you don’t want to follow his orders. Why is that? Why is it different from the last year to this year? Two different governors, two different political parties. So we were supposed to follow it last year but not this year. That makes no sense. It makes all of you a bunch of hypocrites except for Dana and Jamie.
It gets juicy at 1:22:
“Miss Kass, you yelled at me the last time I was here for taking off my mask but here’s a picture of you right here on Facebook with a crowd of people with no mask on,” stated Vaught.
Oh, Kass did not appreciate Vaught calling her out. Kass got all high and mighty: “I’m sorry, Ms. Vaught, you are done. If you are going to sit there and disparage a member of our school board then you can sit down.”
Kass even asks law enforcement to take Vaught out of the room.
Another school board member steps in and puts Kass in her place: “She should be able to say her piece. I’ve had to listen to people come and criticize me.”
Kass retorted, “People came here and criticized you last year?”
The member responded, “Absolutely and I couldn’t do anything about it.”
Kass asked if the people showed pictures of the person’s family.
“They did worse,” the school board member shot back.
Kass whined that Vaught showed off her family from her Facebook page.
Vaught responded, “What do you think about our family? Our family is being suffocated to death by your policies!”
Kass huffed and puffed and stormed off: “I’m done. She leaves or I leave.”
What a crybaby. Maybe don’t be a hypocrite while forcing others to wear a mask.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
People who don’t want photographs of family members displayed should not publicly post them.
Yup. Facebook is about as public as you can get, certainly more public than a school board meeting.
Kass would have no problem using any facebook post Vaught made to disparage her and get the FBI to investigate her.
Kass is a typical radical leftwing authoritarian tyrant who does not recognize that someone who disagrees with her has a right to speak out in protest and expose her hypocrisy. She’d fit right in as a member of Justin Castro’s cabinet.
It is remarkable that her first instinct was to call for a police office to shut down the speech she didn’t like and, presumably, physically remove Ms Vaught from the meeting.
These people are dictators at heart.
And as soon as the Board started bickering amongst themselves, Mr. Leo wisely decided to move away.
Noticed he moved twice as fast leaving as he did when approaching.
(VROOM VROOM I’m outta here, he was thinking)
The high and mighty school board member blurts, “I’m done. She leaves or I leave.”
“What a crybaby.”
If I could think of something to add to this I would. But I can’t. That says it all.
Ds – can/will dish it out, but can’t take it.
Well, yeah, that too. Ha ha.
Pro tip: If you post pix to FB, you lose the moral authority to bitch about it when people call you out on your hypocrisy.
Getting pretty tired of these teo-bit tinpot tyrants who like to throw their weight around. They unwittingly continue to make the case for getting the government out of education. Bureaucracy, once entrenched, is a monster whose primary goal is self- preservation. Couple that with abundant funds from the government teat, and it becomes ossified and permanent.
Burn it all to the ground.
The totalitarian instincts of these petty officials is very much on display. Their first step is scorn, followed by attempts to censor/stop debate followed by appeals to/use of force v those who dare to disagree.
Yes indeed. Spoken like a true prince.
Some years back I was an elected member of my town’s “Representative Town Meeting” which exists primarily to debate and approve the annual budgets. I got called a “c**k s**ker” by one of our school board members when I suggested cutting the requested school budget by $6M. That year the state was threatening to cut the amount they sent us towards school budgets by $12M, and that was almost a third of the town budget that wasn’t required by law or the schools. I suggested that if we had to completely cut several town departments such as the police ($6M) or public works ($4M) it would hurt the town more than the “damage” to our school system. I should add that that was the same school board member who was known to wear a cat ear headband to meetings.
Personally, I took it as a badge of honour. I was obviously over the target. If that idiot on their board can’t take being called a hypocrite whether or not she is one, she has no business being in any sort of public office.
admire the composure of the parent–she was much more cordial than believe could have managed myself–a couple words of advice for the board member that walked out of the meeting: grow up
Just embarrassing behavior from an adult–and if she doesn’t want people to know what she and her family are doing, she needs to get off Facebook
There is nothing like someone being caught being a hyporcrite-it is like the deer being caught in the headlights
Typical Dem behaviour. They get caught at something and no one is supposed to acknowledge it. It isn’t “disparaging” to offer clear evidence, that’s presenting facts.
I was hoping the police would get tired of being used as pawns. The left is not reserved in calling out force. It’s mostly what they have, because it sure the hell isn’t cognizant argument.
