Principal Arrested While In Drag Speaks Out

We're hearing for the first time from a high school principal, arrested while wearing leather, fishnet stockings and false breasts.

On Thursday, prosecutors dismissed charges against Paul Schum. They say they didn't have enough evidence to take the case to trial.

Louisville police arrested the Bardstown principal back on October 30th. They say he was loitering for prostitution.

Schum says he had stopped to remove part of a halloween costume on his way home from a party.

Shum has since resigned as principal at Bethlehem High School. He says he does plan on continuing to work as an educator.

    Well Mr. Hat we have one in favor of our agenda, thank you Fred.

    What's the big deal? The big deal is, he's admitted at least cross-dressing, which is a type of perversion, and that's just one step away from molesting children. That's the big deal. And if he's going to continue in that direction, then no, he shouldn't be dealing with children. Children need a principal to look up to, not a principal to be ashamed of.

    The only thing worst than the behavior of a cross-dressing, wannabe prostitute, lying school principal; is folks like Fred and joe who condone it.

    Big question...Just what, exactly, does any of this have to do with his ability to be a principal? So what if he is a cross-dresser? It's not like he was caught molesting children (that would be a WHOLE different scenario). My point is, do you think that he's going to turn your children into cross-dressers? If he was gay, would you worry about that and call for his head too?

    What are you talking about Bardstown is one of the most corrupt communities in kentucky. Shaking up, yes they need it, by the FBI. This guy isn't the exception but the norm there. Bardstown was once a beautiful place, proof that the second generation really messes things up once the founding father's die.

    This guy has issues. If he was really soliciting for prostitution then he needs to be sent to adult reform school.

    Leave the poor guy alone. Bardstown can use a little shaking up to get the cobwebs out of that system.

    He stopped in an alley to remove his clothing? Come on?? Sounds like he thought of the best excuse he could think of and that is all he could come up with. I think he is just a very confused man and didn't know how to tell the truth. I hope he isn't "educating" my daughter anytime soon.
