Original Report

Bartow County school board District 3 rep and vice chairman Angie Cornett today resigned her position on the board of education, Superintendent John Harper confirmed by phone.

"We will proceed with an election," Harper said, after directing Cartersville Patch to read the Cartersville newspaper for the information we were attempting to gather. It's not clear if it'll be a special election, as Harper said that would be up the Elections board.

Jay, not true. She was an elected official and these actions happened during her service. She also is now a public personality due to her arrest and nantionwide media attention. No different that Casey Anthony - you can publicy criticize Angie all you want

Sorry Jay, your wrong. Any further negative comments about her can not result in a charge of slander/defamation. That's only is the statements are willfully and intentionally false and intended to cause harm. Everything being said about Angie is true and well documented. You see we have this thing in this country called the constitution and the first amendment protects your right to free speech.

If she has a bad record at school board then this was indeed another incident on top of the other things but i dont know her history. If she has mental are anger issues then yes she should go and that goes without saying.
