Good news for government teachers in Loudoun County, Virginia. When your lesson plans cover totalitarianism, you have an expert on hand.
Loudoun County School Board member Joy Maloney was arrested for trespassing and attempting to physically block voters from entering a Donald Trump rally being held at a local school.
According to Kraig Troxell, spokesman for the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office, deputies assigned to Briar Woods High School for the rally were made aware that a woman interfered with the line waiting to get inside the event.
Maloney, according to Troxell, reportedly stepped in front of several attendees waiting to go inside. She was asked to go back in line and refused to do so before sitting on the ground.
“As this was a private event contracted through Loudoun County Public Schools, the organizers revoked her ticket and she continued to refuse to leave the premises,” Troxell said.
Maloney, 45, of Broadlands, was charged with trespassing and taken into custody after she continued to remain seated and refused to leave.
Maloney was taken before a Loudoun Magistrate and released on a $1,000 unsecured bond.
The Trump campaign rented the school, which is a public facility, and paid all the costs.
Since the school is a public facility, as a school board member she cannot use physical force to block people from entering it simply because she doesn’t like their ideas.
As a school board member, she is also expected to be more mature than the children in her system.
The Loudoun County Republican Committee has called for her resignation.
