After the release of emails showing that Indiana State Superintendent Tony Bennett manipulated the grading system to favor a charter school belonging to a big GOP donor, a furor erupted about his ethics. He is now State Superintendent in Florida following his election loss in Indiana last fall, a transition arranged by Bennett’s mentor Jeb Bush. Bennett was head of Jeb Bush’s Chiefs for Change.

Florida’s Governor Rick Scott is facing an uphill battle for re-election in 2014, and some political insiders are wondering if Bennett will drag down Scott, who remained silent and pretended he had not read the stories about his education commissioner.

The question now is whether Bennett will be sacked. Not surprisingly, the loudest voice supporting him was Jeb Bush’s chief of staff.
