Porn For Manassas Park’s Schools

By Greg L | 7 June 2009 | Rack & Roll Scandal, Manassas Park | 22 Comments

Manassas Park has two openings on the School Board that start June 30th, and guess who shows up to apply for the position?  Maybe someone with a long history of working with the school system?  Perhaps someone with extensive management experience?  This is the Park we’re talking about here, so of course the story isn’t that mundane.  No, the Governing Board gets an application from someone who has produced pornography, albeit at the direction of the Governing Board.  Yep, Kevin Brendel is back, or trying anyways.

He’s the one that shot this wonderful picture, in fact:

This ought to be interesting.  City Attorney Dean Crowhurst has admitted to all of this in open meetings of the Manassas Park Governing Board, and not only are there a bunch of photos like these that Brendel took in public, but I’ve spoken with women who were approached by Brendel to pose for nude photographs in private.  There are also rumors out there that I haven’t been able to confirm that Brendel actually did private nude photo shoots with several women.  That’s quite a resume for the School Board, isn’t it?

If Brendel gets this appointment, and it’s now OK for pornographers to be on the Manassas Park School Board, that should raise some interesting questions about what’s going on in this city government.  Maybe this is supposed to be the payoff for Brendel playing ball with the city government and Mayor Frank Jones, but even for the Park, elevating pornographers to the School Board is pretty stunning.

    Stunning is putting it mildly, if you want to know the truth. This cannot
    be allowed to happen!!

    And to think that I, a good conservative, with an education background, could not get elected to the school board in Alexandria. As the great radio talkshow host Bob Grant would say, “it’s sick out there, and getting sicker.”

    I believe that Kevin Brendel is a compromised man. That’s putting it lightly.

    The guy is truely sick in the head and has no place near children or city government. He has a very arrogant personality and doesn’t get it. Stay away from everyone until you get help.

    A very small man with a small mind. He can’t even keep his cool at his vey young son’s basketball game. As the vice mayor he was removed from the rec center by the site supervisor. If this is all true, the scary thing is he hangs out with young children all the time as a cub scout leader.

    Copied from Manassas Park website:

    “Public Hearing
    School Board Appointment

    The Governing Body of City of Manassas Park, Virginia will hold a Public Hearing on Tuesday, June 9, 2009 at 7:00 PM at City Hall, One Park Center Court, Manassas Park, Virginia

    This meeting will be held to get citizens comments on persons being considered for appointment to School Board. Appointments will be made for two terms expiring June 30, 2009. Terms will be effective July 1, 2009 and expire June 30, 2012. ”

    If anyone wishes to express their concern in person, tonight is the night.

    Only two people spoke at the public hearing.

    My thought is that if you’re applying for the school board position, you ought to either show up for the public hearing and say a few words about yourself, or send someone to say a few words in your favor.

    “A very small man with a small mind.”

    I’m not sure about that–Brendel strikes me as a pretty bright guy who made some really dumb decisions and got wrapped up in the culture of corruption we have here in the Park. Had he kept his nose clean and not getting wrapped up in that stuff, he could have done some great things.

    As it is now, he’s in trouble. There is NO statute of limitations for what he allegedly did. It may not be tomorrow, or next year, it may be 20 years, but he will eventually pay the piper for his doings. Eventually, those who are protecting him from the consequences of his actions will no longer be able to do so.

    It must be a terrible burden on him to deal with that. Confession is good for the soul.

    Would that mean, if elected, that the School Board Meetings would be on Pay-Per-View and also, would he have to excuse himself if a child was busted for “sexting”?

    Mr. Leeper, I respect your opinion, but in my opinion bright guys do not make the decisions Kevin Brendel has and they do not storm out on the basketball court of a game intended for very young (5 to 8 years old) and start yelling at the ref and get themselves kicked out of the rec center and then cry and yell at the employee because he is the vice mayor. This is not a rumor it is fact as I witnessed the whole incident.

    I’ve only been in NOVA a few yrs and I’ve not heard of this man, but did y’all say he is a boy scout leader, was vice Mayor, has young children and takes pornographic photos? Did someone comment that he was a bright person who got caught up in corruption? It’s possible, I suppose, to get “caught up”, but can you get “caught up” in pornography? Because of the corruption he somehow didn’t realize how off that is? Do the parents in the scouts know about this?
    I’m sure y’all will see to it that he does not become a school board member, the thought of someone like that affecting policy for children makes me ill.

    “Mr. Leeper, I respect your opinion, but in my opinion bright guys do not make the decisions Kevin Brendel has”

    Being smart is one thing. Being ethical is another. It is possible for someone to be smart and unethical. Many white-collar criminals fall into this category.

    It is a matter of whether one uses their intelligence for good or evil, for right or wrong.

    “This is not a rumor it is fact as I witnessed the whole incident.”

    I’m not doubting you at all. I’ve heard similar reports from others.

    “Because of the corruption he somehow didn’t realize how off that is?”

    There is a theory that he did this at the direction of others.

    Why would someone do something so wrong at the direction of others?

    Given the right set of circumstances, a man could be convinced to do something as wrong as commit treason. (Ensuring that those circumstances do not exist before someone is given access to classified information is a large part of the background check that accompanies a security clearance).

    “I’m sure y’all will see to it that he does not become a school board member”

    He is currently on the planning commission. He shouldn’t be there, either.

    This is why we need an elected school board.

    As I recall, you only need to collect roughly 550 (10%) signatures of registered voters in Manassas Park to put the question on the ballot. The SBE recommends 15% (roughly 825) signatures to ensure that enough are qualified.

    Details are here:

    On the subject of corruption–it really is like cancer. Cancer, as you know, spreads and turns normal cells into cancerous ones. Corruption is the same way. That is why corruption must be dealt with early on–the longer it’s allowed to fester, the harder it is to get rid of it.

    MR. Leeper,
    From your posts, I can’t quite determine what side of this you are on. Do you think he will be appointed to the school board, and do you think he should be?

    I do not think he should be appointed to the school board. I do not think he should be on the planning commission either (he currently is).

    I would be pleasantly surprised to find that he is not appointed to the school board.

    Let me make it clear–IF you have done something so seriously wrong that it is a felony, and IF someone is protecting you from the consequences of that action, you ARE going to do whatever they tell you to do.

    During the public hearing for Rack and Roll’s conditional use permit, where Brendel was once employed as a DJ, it was stated that nude pictures were taken of possibly underage girls.

    Why would be that no charges were ever filed? Why would it be that, based on the usage of the phrase “possibly underage”, no investigation has been done to find out whether these girls were indeed underage? (By they way, if they were, that’s felony child pornography.)

    Those questions need to be answered…

    …and perhaps they will be, someday.

    Does the following disallow the Governing Body of the City of Manassas Park from voting for school board appointments by secret ballot?

    § 2.2-3710. Transaction of public business other than by votes at meetings
    prohibited.
    A. Unless otherwise specifically provided by law, no vote of any kind of the membership,
    or any part thereof, of any public body shall be taken to authorize the transaction of any
    public business, other than a vote taken at a meeting conducted in accordance with the
    provisions of this chapter. No public body shall vote by secret or written ballot, and
    unless expressly provided by this chapter, no public body shall vote by telephone or other
    electronic communication means.

    Brendel was not appointed to the school board at tonight’s city council meeting. Two other applicants were appointed.

    That sounds great. Did they do it by secret ballot? Who were the two people appointed?

  21. Brian Leeper said on 17 Jun 2009 at 8:38 am:

    Yes, they did–each councilmember ranked the applicants on a scale of one to three and gave that to the city clerk, who totalled them up, and then announced the two applicants with the highest total.

    I was watching the meeting on TV and did not catch the names of the two people who were appointed. I’ll get that information and post it here when I have it.

    What’s his ethnicity? Or is that only relevent if he’s hispanic? Is he a legal citizen or a poice of carp alien? This is uber-important in determining whether ort not his presence here should be tolerated, because… you know.
