An objective evaluation makes it all very clear.

June 20, 2008

Dear Mr. Zandberg,

The Washington State Auditor takes every whistleblower complaint seriously. It is only through free and open communication that instances of corruption and crime can be detected, because God knows, we can't find anything ourselves.

I regret to inform you that none of your complaints resulted in any determination of wrongdoing. We were initially under the impression that a significant number of laws had been violated, but when we asked Marla Miller, she reported that everything was fine and that we needn't look any further. Ms. Miller was very helpful.

So, regarding your allegations, we agree with Ms. Miller. You are disgruntled and made everything up. Surely no one in public service could be as stupid as your allegations suggest.

Thank you for your letter. Please do not contact us again.

Brian Sonntag
State Auditor

Blog: The District's legal team should be advised that this letter is a work of fiction. It was not written by Brian Sonntag or anyone employed by the Washington State Auditor's Office. The Washington State Auditor indicated that a response to the blog's lengthy list of allegations would be provided this week. Friday marks the end of the week and our readers continue to wait for the results of the Auditor's evaluation.

Well, perhaps, just as 7 days are not ACTUALLY 24 hour days in the telling of the creation of the Earth, a week is not ACTUALLY a week when you are dealing with a bureaucracy.

Dear District employees,

I confess! Yes I am guilty of all that has been alleged and even those things I have been accused of. I know I should have done this earlier but my recent nightmares of burning in Hell and the visit by the Spirit of Superintendents past has really affected my conscience (a surprise to me too, I never knew I had one).

So, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mark for bringing all of this to the attention of the Public, for all the comments of support for him in this Blog - it all goes to show you what a great country this really is! I am retiring from the District effective immediately and have taken the lead role in "The Sound of Music". Come see me at the Fifth Avenue Theatre when you can.
