PORTLAND -- A state board will investigate whether a Beaverton teacher was on his own time or using state resources while he organized liberals to crash Oregon tea parties.
On Thursday, Jason Levin was put on paid leave by the Beaverton School District.
Levin has gotten national attention for a "Crash the Tea Party" Web site that called for opponents to infiltrate the events and behave outlandishly. That raised suspicion he was doing political work during schools hours.
Beaverton School District spokeswoman Maureen Wheeler confirmed Levin was placed on paid administrative leave as of Thursday while they conduct an internal investigation into his actions during work time.
Is this guy getting what he deserves?

I think what he was doing was the cowards way. If you don't agree, then protest yourself. I'm glad his website was taken down and I hope his suspension is permanent.

but there isn't anything to debate
Really? Because when this website came out in the media and a question was asked a week ago involving this site~ quite a few leftys were quick to say this site was really a 'plant' from the right... etc, etc... I guess now, it's best to keep quiet.. The silence speaks volumes... ;o)
