Claims that Lewis cost the state $1.9 million are false. It was the Joy Schools that took $1.9 million over what they were entitled. Lewis's Sequoia schools provided services to the Joy schools (Joy purchased teachers and other services from Sequoia) but never did anything improper, and were never accused by the state of wrongdoing. This is a pernicious lie put out there by the Pearce camp. Rumor is that Chuck Coughlin shopped that story to the media on Pearce's behalf, but anyone who did any checking realized that it wasn't true. So, Shane Wikfors of Sonoran News offered to do a hit piece, and made these accusations, which have been repeated in several right-wing blogs. They are not true, and that Pearce & Co. would traffic in a lie designed to harm someone's character is a sign that Pearce should be replaced.Oct 29, 2011
