SC Educrat Running Side Business … With Your Money

… ADMINISTRATOR RUNS BAIL BOND BIZ FROM GOVERNMENT SCHOOL A taxpayer-funded bureaucrat at a failing government-run school district in South Carolina is using your time – and resources – to run a side business as a bail bondsman.

A taxpayer-funded bureaucrat at a failing government-run school district in South Carolina is using your time – and resources – to run a side business as a bail bondsman. And S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley’s administration – which has refused to investigate corruption in this particular district before – knows all about it.

Joann Faison – a benefits administrator for the Jasper County School District (official page HERE) – is currently listed on Haley’s Department of Insurance (SCDOI) website as a licensed surety bondsman (HERE).

The only problem? The “business phone,” “fax number,” “business email address” and “business web address” she provided to the Department of Insurance are all paid for by taxpayers.

Not only that, Faison admitted during a phone call that she was conducting bond business out of her government office. She even returned a call from a “wrong number” during school hours – making sure the respondent was aware she was available to discuss bail bonds.

Don’t believe us? Take a look at this screen grab from the SCDOI website …

Yeah … glad to know the entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well somewhere in the Palmetto State’s worst-in-the-nation school system!

Now … will anything come of this revelation? Probably not.

Clearly Haley’s Department of Insurance doesn’t care,  and as reported previously Jasper County – home to the worst government-run school district in all of South Carolina – has a longstanding policy of rewarding failure and covering the tracks of its corrupt bureaucrats.

All we ask is that you remember Ms. Faison’s “side business” the next time a government school apologist demands that taxpayers shell out more money “for the children.”

Funny, I would think that most schools need a bail bondsman these days.

Smirks February 6, 2014 at 1:43 pm

Would the school resource officers have to play the role of bounty hunter?

Probably yeah, because she obviously doesn’t have the time to…. hmmmm, well maybe she does……

Wow, now there’s an idea. A captive audience, so to speak. Money to be made here. All the teachers have to do is let their guard down a little, then the kids get unruly, then they can arrest them at will. They have a resident bail/bondsman, a resident po po, may as well set up a resident magistrate and juvie office. The parents won’t have to make so many trips to different agencies, a veritable “one stop shop”. Brilliant!

Funny, and to think you want education to be a full time business so your corporate pimps can make a profit off our kids education.

Make up your mind. Your “government run” idiocy is getting tiring.

Will Folks aka Sic February 6, 2014 at 2:37 pm

Yes I am a corporate pimp. And if it is getting tiring, then GO THE FUCK SOMEPLACE ELSE.

Where’s he gonna go? He can’t find a job.

A good part of his life is coming to your site and bitching about the capitalism…which is understandable on one hand because he thinks the reason he can’t find a job is because of it…but the big irony being that with what little of it there is left(in a true free market sense) is being represented by a site like this and it’s where he comes to get his entertainment in lieu of being productive.

In the @$$-backward districts in SC, the is common. And guess what party they are affiliated with???

PS: Bashing Haley for this, is ludicrous. If you call out people who think a gov’t position is a license to fatten themselves…you’l be called names by the media..and a certain amount of stupid voters (you know what party) believe it…

Wonder if she signs up her bail bond clients with State Insurance Benefits through the School District

It would be a shame for her drug dealer client awaiting trial for murder to be without Health and Dental Care. Wouldn’t want the little cockroach to appear in Court with pink eye and a goddamn mother fucking gap between his damn teeth. Such an appearance would be grounds for his Taxpayer Funded Lawyer to make a motion for dismissal

At one time had some compassion for Jasper County residents being butt fucked by Georgia Governor Deal but at this point they should forget about dredging the channel and putting the shit in Jasper County – they should dredge the channel and Jasper County and put all the shit into the Atlantic

Fucking Cockroaches

WTF February 6, 2014 at 6:16 pm

Jim, these people are beyond cockroaches, they are turd maggots!
Would fit in nicely with the bunch in Columbia and C.J. Toal!

Jackie Chiles February 6, 2014 at 12:09 pm

She can’t even get a cell phone for the bail bondsman business?

I'm sure she earns her money February 6, 2014 at 12:40 pm

Why when you have taxpayers covering your startup costs?

Jackie Chiles February 6, 2014 at 1:59 pm

I’m pretty sure bail bondsman need after-hour numbers.

I'm sure she earns her money February 6, 2014 at 2:14 pm

lol, good point! Maybe she’s putting in OT courtesy of the taxpayer?

Jackie Chiles February 6, 2014 at 2:24 pm

She’s probably running an operation similar to dog the bounty hunter out of the Jasper County School District. Nobody had the nerve to tell the big black doods in hummers wearing camo and bullet-proof vests not to take up county parking spots.

I'm sure she earns her money February 6, 2014 at 12:40 pm

Maybe she can recruit some public school kids into her company and call it a class in “entrepreneurship” while on the taxpayer dime too.

I’ll pay for the placard on her office door under the new education program:

“Bernie Madoff school of Entrepreneurship”

“Leave all ethics at the door please.”

I don’t know of a single employer who would not fire someone for this type of offense. It is beyond words that she is allowed to do that. Fire her ass.

Uh huh February 6, 2014 at 1:35 pm

“I don’t know of a single employer who would not fire someone for this type of offense.”

and now you do, it’s called the “SC government”.

Hopeless February 6, 2014 at 1:54 pm

Obviously you don’t know much about Jasper County. These idiots make the state legislature look like rocket scientist! The sad part is that it is not isolated to just the schools. It’s county council, sheriff, ,school baord, clerk of court, magistrates. If you can appoint them or elect them its screwed up, I can guarantee you that! A recent mid year 31% property tax increase. Now they want a .01 cents referendum added to the local option sales tax. $40 million in NEW schools. You have to have good “digs” to achieve the worst performing school district in the state. Only in Jasper County could the school district receive failing grades and the super get a contract extenion and a 15K bonus added to her 165K salary plus benifits.

Everything you say is true. Grew up in Jasper County’s seat and everything is so screwed up there. I know quite a few parents working second/third jobs to send their kids to private school so they stand a fighting chance. While many of the residents are good decent people, only the worst get put in office. I think the worst thing I have heard lately is my mom rented a place to a Judge’s clerk who did various things and then moved out leaving the door wide open. After many unreturned phone calls my mom went to the Judge’s chambers to retrieve the keys (she didn’t care about the back owed rent) and found out she had been barred from the building using the office of this judge. The guard did not ask for ID or anything just said for her to leave. Needless to say she called around and got that judge censured. He ultimately apologised but nothing really changed. She is still upset about this, being denied access to a public building for no reason.

gofigure February 7, 2014 at 8:41 am

this county is the perfect example of “crime does pay”. despite a “so-called” SLED investigation, countless arrest and employees double-dipping, everyone is turning a blind eye so the status quo continues. shame on law enforcement. the ultimate victims are the children and citizens of the community duped by THESE SELF-APPOINTED LEADERS.
