Bus driver fired for flipping Bush off
    #6240081 - 11/02/06 06:25 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15532553/

A school bus driver fired after she reportedly made an obscene gesture at President Bush has filed a union grievance in an attempt to get her job back.

The 43-year-old driver, whose name was not released, was driving middle school children back to school after a zoo visit on June 16 when the president and Republican Rep. Dave Reichert drove slowly by in a motorcade.

From the bus, the children waved; with the windows down in their car, Bush and Reichert waved back.

That’s when the driver gave the president the finger, according to Reichert and Issaquah superintendent Janet Barry.

“The congressman hadn’t seen it, but the president turned to him and said, ‘That one’s not a fan,”’ said Reichert spokeswoman Kimberly Cadena.

Reichert later called Barry to tell her about the incident, but the bus driver had already been fired. District officials learned about the incident after the driver boasted to colleagues about it, Cadena said.

District spokeswoman Sara Niegowski said the driver has filed a wrongful termination grievance through the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees. The union did not return calls seeking comment.

Niegowski said the firing was not politically motivated.

“The bus driver was not terminated for making an obscene gesture at the president. The bus driver was terminated for making an obscene gesture in view of the students,” Niegowski said. “That’s not the role modeling we need for our students.”

Should she get her job back? Vote here:

I personally think she has the right to shoot the bird at anyone she pleases...even if it is in front of kids. With the shit that's on TV now days, someone flipping someone off isnt a big deal. Fuckers.

She deserves to be fired.

Next it will be ok to drop your pants in front of children and wiggle your anus at someone.

funny as it is, i dont think she should get her job back. sure kids have seen a lot worse, but in general adults who are employed to be around kids shouldn't be doing things like that around the kids.

I think he should get fired. I mean what if he had flipped off Willie Nelson or Woody Harrleson?

Can we discriminate against who it is? And if so, what are the guidelines?

hahaha, how do you wiggle an anus?


anyways, someone employed to chaperone kids should be expected to be more mayure than that, expecially to our Commander in Chief! it would teach them to disrespect authority figures like mom and dad.


but it seems bush took it well

"that ones not a fan"

wow. just too funny...

I think the driver shouldn't be fired. How many times in your life are you going to see the president face to face? I'd have flipped him off.

It doesn't have to do with freedom of speech. It has to do with decency and and respect on the job.
If you work at Walmart as a greeter, the President comes in, and you flick him off you'll get fired.
Now if some random dude walks in and you flick him off, you'll get fired!
What the fuck is so hard to understand about this?
I don't like Bush either. But if you flick a man off on the job, especially if you're a SCHOOL BUS DRIVER, you're going to get shitcanned!

If the job you're working at doesnt respect your rights as an American, then it's not even worth working for them.
