All because I exposed the sexual abuses at Illinois School for the Deaf.
Since they removed my post, I'm going to leave this original post on my blog for the world to google and find out.

Because this school has a long list of staff members having sexual/love relationships with the students in the last 50 years, it was not easy to make sure that that person is the one that the state is investigating.
There are half-dozen staff members who are still at ISD, there are several staff members who are placed on administrative leave with pay, some lasted for years. So the question was: Which one was the one that the state is investigating?
I am able to pin on the person, his name is Charles Hicks. Hicks is well known Deaf family generations in several states. He is currently on administrative leave with pay at ISD and was instructed not to leave the state when he is under the investigation.
Charles Hicks is also the longtime boyfriend of Marybeth Lauderdale, the former and hearing superintendent of ISD. In fact, Marybeth was the one who set in motion for cued speech program at ISD, throwing the school in turmoil.
Marybeth is now the Director of Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf.
