The Smoking Gun reports that a Long Island elementary school teacher claim she was fired for displaying a photo of President Bush in her classroom.
Jillian Caruso has filed suit against the Massapequa Union Free School District for wrongful termination, claiming that Principal Joyce Becker-Seddio became outraged by the photo -- displayed along with pictures of several other presidents -- and demanded its removal.
Caruso claims she was later forced to resign by Becker-Seddio, who had previously written her a glowing performance evaluation.
The trouble started, Caruso contends, when Becker-Seddio found out that Caruso was active in local Republican politics.
Becker-Seddio is the wife of Brooklyn Democratic State Assemblyman Frank Seddio.
Nice. Very tolerant.
