Ah! Gee Guys, You Know It's True
Someone was nice enough (or concerned about the truth) and sent this website a nice copy of an email. Now I know what they are going to say -- again-- that this is all made up, but I can only take the emails at face value -- and I'm hedging my bets that they are authentic.
As you will see by the contents of the emails, these two guys are trying to do some quick PR, but the fact of the matter, evidence is evidence and our simply is not "manufactured." The fact of the matter, it has been investigated, substantiated, and safely in the hands of the following government authorities: FBI, EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission), DOL (Dept. of Labor), US Attorney General, IRS, and INS (Immigration and Naturalization Services). And the best part -- when the investigations are concluded, you get to request copies under the Freedom of Information Act.
And come on -- who's going to take the time to compile a very lengthy Excel spreadsheet with almost 100 names of HIB Visa holders and Turkish employees if the information was not useful and/or true? It's hard enough to pronounce the names -- let alone make them up. And in case you have forgotten, the public can authenticate the information from the spreadsheets on the same state education websites that we used.
So listen up guys, you can threaten all the legal action you want to (which you already have many times before), because the beauty in that, is that all the evidence comes out in discovery (you know, like Sagnak's deposition ).
Note: Here are the emails that were sent to our website. If you have any concerns, I would certainly feel free to call Mr. Kose or Mr. Effe.

Hello Excellent Team,
I know you were wondering about that strange email but I wasn’t surprised as the decision makers can be accused of anything when they do not renew the contracts for the upcoming year. I have my personal experiences related to similar issues to share with friends when we are having some tea-talks in our free time, too.
Below is the email I have received from the central office. It seems that we are not the only target. Just ignore them and focus on getting EXCELLENT WITH DISTINCION title at the end of the year. I will focus on this goal as well, after solving my car search issue.

Please share it with your staff....
Dear Mr. Kose and Staff,
I wanted to give you a heads up regarding an unsolicited e-mail, which is filled with accusations of Horizon Science Academies that you may have received or be receiving. It comes from a former employee; grant writer, who was dismissed due to her engagement in a second job during her contracted hours such as substitute teaching at another school.
With her husband, who happens to be Turkish, she has been trying to retaliate against Horizon Science Academies with sending other Horizon staff unsolicited e-mails filled with fabricated documents and accusations. It has been recently brought to our attention that some of our staff members have received and continue to receive such e-mails.
We do not want such disturbing e-mails to create distraction within our staff. Horizon Science Academies have established such a great reputation throughout Ohio in such a short period of time. We know that this has been through your hard work, undivided attention, and focus on student achievement.
Now, there are people who try to hurt our reputation and distract us from doing what we have been successfully doing; educating our students. As we are taking all the measurements including legal actions to stop this madness please ignore these unsolicited e-mails and do not let them be a distraction to you.
Thanks for your cooperation on this matter.

We're confused again. This guy Efe states that he is "Superintendent" and is located in Cleveland. But when we looked up his credentials it says he is supposed to be in Lorain. Someone really needs to invest in a GPS system for these guys -- they seem to be continually getting lost -- never knowing which location they are working at.
And by the way, how did he get to be a "Superintendent?" We would love to know what his full credentials are that qualify him for that position. Does it have anything to do with him being a Turkish male under the age of 40?
And for Kose, we sure hope he gets that car issue resolved pretty soon -- we hear Toyotas are pretty good cars...
By the way, can someone in his English department help him out with his spelling -- (it's distinction, not "DISTINCION").
