Earlier this week, the Daily Wire’s Luke Rosiak blew the lid off of a genuine scandal.

Loudoun County Public Schools had had a father, Scott Smith, arrested for attempting to bring up his ninth-grade daughter’s alleged sexual assault by a “gender-fluid” male student in a high school bathroom. The alleged rapist went on to be arrested and charged with sexually assaulting another female student at the school he was subsequently transferred to.

LCPS eventually issued a pathetic statement in which they attempted to claim, among other things, that they had no idea about the alleged assaults until Rosiak’s story broke — and they tried to impugn Smith’s character, to boot.

Keep that statement in mind when you read this update from Rosiak:

LCPS knew. Just like they knew about Scott Smith’s daughter and the other young woman who was allegedly raped this fall.

Recall:

Amazing how easy it is to claim zero assaults when honesty and transparency don’t matter to you.

More from Rosiak:

Loudoun County Public Schools did not record multiple known incidents of alleged sexual assault in schools dating back several years, despite a law that requires statistics about school safety incidents to be reported to the public and which includes provisions holding school superintendents personally liable for violations, a Daily Wire review of public records found.

After The Daily Wire raised the discrepancy with the Virginia Department of Education, VDOE spokesman Charles Pyle said that “VDOE is reviewing the discipline, crime and violence data submissions of Loudoun County Public Schools and is in communication with LCPS to determine whether the division’s reporting is accurate and whether the division is in compliance with state and federal law.”

The same law could have implications for a Loudoun superintendent or principal in the wake of a May 28 alleged sexual assault in a bathroom — an incident first reported by The Daily Wire Monday. On June 22, Superintendent Scott Ziegler told the public, “To my knowledge, we don’t have any record of assaults occurring in our restrooms.”

Virginia law requires that “Reports shall be made to the division superintendent and to the principal or his designee on all incidents involving … sexual assault.”

If the Virginia Department of Education gives a damn about students, they’ll gut LCPS and start from scratch.

Read the whole thing.

And then weep for LCPS students and parents, who have evidently been at the mercy of monsters for quite some time now.

Horrific … and the way it’s going to stay if Terry McAuliffe has anything to say about it.
