Parents Demand Woke Superintendent Fired for Covering Up Child Rape by Trans Student
Young girl suffered brutal sexual assault in female bathroom by a 'boy in a skirt'
Calls are mounting from outraged parents for their kids' superintendent to be fired after it emerged that the "woke" school official covered up the rape of a young child by a transgender student.
Loudoun County Schools Superintendent Scott Ziegler is accused of covering up an incident where a girl was raped by a "boy in a skirt" in the school's female bathroom facility.
Ziegler claimed on June 22 that the school had received no reports of sexual assaults by transgender students in bathrooms.
However, he made that claim four weeks after the victim reported she'd been raped in the bathrooms by a male who had entered the girls' facility due to the school's "woke" gender policies.
Ziegler earns $295,000 a year as the school superintendent and took over the job in January.
"To my knowledge, we don’t have any record of assaults occurring in our restrooms," he told a crowded school board meeting on June 22.
He then went further, calling it a debunked theory that a transgender person is more likely to sexually assault a "cisgender" person, and that the "predatory trans person does not exist."
However, parents are alleging that the district tried to cover up two alleged sexual assaults by the same male student that occurred at two different schools on May 28 and Oct. 6.
More than 60 parents and students addressed the Loudoun County School Board during a fiery meeting Tuesday night in the wake of the two rapes.
The parents urged the board to “end this nightmare” by holding themselves accountable and getting rid of Superintendent Ziegler, Fox News reports.
The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to The New York Post on Wednesday that they are handling two sexual assault cases that occurred on two different campuses within the district.
In the more recent case, a 15-year-old biological male transgender student was arrested after allegedly forcing a female student into an empty classroom at Broad Run High School before inappropriately touching her on Oct. 6, according to the sheriff’s office.
The 15-year-old remains in custody after being charged with sexual battery and abduction.
The same student, who was 14 at the time, was previously arrested over the May 28 alleged sexual assault at Stone Bridge High School, 7News reports.
Scott Smith revealed to the Daily Wire this week that his ninth-grade daughter was the victim in the May case after a male student “wearing a skirt” allegedly attacked her in the girl’s bathroom.
Smith’s attorney said the boy was eventually charged with two counts of forcible sodomy, one count of anal sodomy, and one count of forcible fellatio.
It wasn’t immediately clear what action the school took against the student in the wake of the allegations.
Smith has claimed the male student took advantage of the school district’s transgender policy by gaining access to the female restroom to allegedly assault his daughter.
Smith was arrested at a Loudoun County board meeting for disorderly conduct back in June after he erupted when Ziegler said the school hadn’t had any incidents involving a transgender student in bathrooms and declared that “the predator transgender student or person simply does not exist.”
Angry parents used the school board meeting Tuesday to accuse Ziegler and the school district of trying to cover up the alleged sexual assaults by doing nothing about them.
A spokesperson for the district said both incidents were immediately reported to the sheriff’s office and they cooperated with the investigations.
"Your moral compasses are busted! You, Dr. Ziegler, and our school board — every one of you — are complicit in these crimes against our children because you did nothing about it, nothing,” one mother said during the board meeting.
"What is worse than a child being raped at school?” another mother declared.
"The cover-up by those who are trusted with the safety and well-being of children.
"Today, Scott Ziegler must resign for the unconscionable act of allowing an alleged rapist back into school to rape again, and for that cover-up."
Another added: “This is not China, this is the United States of America, and we will not be silenced.
"Remove the superintendent immediately and then resign for your negligence and duplicity.
"End this nightmare.”
Loudoun County’s divisive school board meetings have made headlines in recent months over issues ranging from transgender policies to mask mandates and Critical Race Theory.
