Anne Donohue, the newly elected at-large School Board member and recently departed Department of Justice (DoJ) attorney, was found by the Office of Special Counsel (OSC) to have violated the Hatch Act in her campaign for office. While Mrs. Donohue did resign from the DoJ
after being confronted with the violation, this raises a larger question of her ethics.
How is Buta Biberaj an unmitigated disaster? Let’s count the ways.
(1.) Personally prosecutes parents who try and defend their children while at School Board meetings and seeks jail time for parents.
(2.) Fails to prosecute criminals, especially violent criminals, and instead sets them free.
(3.) Deceitful. Claims there is a drop in crime under her term, but she unilaterally directed non-prosecution of 14 criminal statutes resulting in a 67% drop in prosecutions. Voilá! Drop in crime!

A Loudoun County jury found former School Board Superintendent Scott Ziegler guilty of retaliation against a teacher, Ms. Erin Brooks. Ms. Brooks was Loudoun’s 2021 Special Education Teacher of the Year. Ziegler fired Ms. Erin Brooks last year for embarrassing him and the school board during a period when the school board was receiving a lot of unwanted national attention.
