The report was created at the behest of the leadership of the APS. Their intention was to use the report to discredit Moya in his whistleblower lawsuit against the district.
At the time, the Journal and APS' shared interest was in defaming Moya;
- APS to create an advantage in their cost-is-no-object legal defense against Moya's complaint, and
- the Journal's complicity or complacency regarding the cover up of an ethics, standards and accountability crisis in the leadership of the APS.
Now, in two Journal feature stories in as many days; one on the 20th; link, and another this morning, link, the Journal is desperately trying to walk the scandal back, Voters are now to believe; they're all sitting on upended crates in front of desks made of old doors resting on cinder blocks.

Ayn Rand has offered;

believe the worst is true.
The stewardship of the leadership of the APS has been an epic fail. They are unaccountable to any higher standards of conduct at all, and demonstrably unaccountable even to the law.
Walz and they may think that it's in the public best interests to pass the bond issues and mill levy, despite the accountability crisis. However noble their intentions might be ...
it really isn't their call.
