This just in: Henry Clampitt, a candidate for the Red Clay Consolidated School District Board of Education, just told a crowd of people at a PTA debate for the candidates, that he has been a victim of bullying by a blogger in Kent County. He stated he is not a blogger. The question that was asked of Clampitt was his stance on bullying. Clampitt ran out of time but kept on talking and stated he needed to say this.
Yes, I wrote about Clampitt being Publius. Long after someone else outed him on Twitter. We all suspected but that was the first public confirmation of this. Now, in the final weeks of the Red Clay board seat campaign, Clampitt addresses the issue. Let me clarify one thing. Publius was NOT a blogger. He commented on a blog. There is a huge difference.
The last time Publius commented on Kilroy’s Delaware, he said he was saying goodbye and the “sign was in the yard”. Publius has not been seen since. Around the same time, Henry Clampitt joined the Gateway Lab School Board of Directors. Make of that what you will. Publius was a bully on Kilroy’s Delaware. He went after people with absolutely no mercy. I will shed no tears for the consequences of those actions. But we do all owe Publius a debt of gratitude. His stance on charter schools and enrollment preferences and school choice kept the conversation going long after most people would have drifted away.
So if Clampitt wasn’t Publius, who was? Was it the Smoke Monster from LOST? Was it the Candy Man? Was it Donald Trump? Was it Kilroy himself? Was it Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny or the Tooth Fairy? Or was it…
