DC Schools Chancellor, Michelle Rhee has been gaining a reputation as someone who doesn’t like to follow rules .Apparently, her friends don’t like rules either. Kevin Johnson, the former NBA star with the Phoenix Suns, is cited as being friends with Rhee. They apparently met through his work with the nonprofit St. Hope Corporation in Sacramento. Rhee, in fact, is described by Washingtonian.com as having sought out Johnson for advice before accepting the Chancellorship.
It seems that Johnson, like Rhee, has little regard for rules. In 2007, Johnson was accused of inappropriate conduct by a student at a Sacramento High School. In California, state law demands that the authorities be notified after such allegations are reported, yet, Johnson decided to overlook this little detail and his lawyers got to the girl first.
