Seattle Does Something Right!

School Bus Driver Fired For 'Flipping Off' President

ISSAQUAH, Wash. - An Issaquah school bus driver who was fired for "flipping off" President Bush is trying to get her job back.

The 43-year-old has filed a union grievance against the district, claiming wrongful termination.

Congressman Dave Reichert says the obscene gesture occurred as he was traveling in the president's limo in June on the way to a fund-raiser in Medina.
At a freeway ramp the limo passed several Issaquah school buses. The students waved to the president and Bush waved back. Bush was having a good time until he saw the driver. Bush turned to Reichert and said the driver had flipped him off.

Reichert later called the school district and the driver was fired in September. A spokeswoman, Sara Niegowski, says the gesture was "not at all appropriate modeling for students on the bus."

So is this driver trying to say that flying the bird on a schoolbus is OK, or that openly hating the Prez in front of impressionable youths is OK?
