This is an excerpt from Principal David Jimenez’s testimony at the 3020a of Mr. Silvers
Respondent’s lawyer: Okay. Now before January 18,2011 do you recall whether or not Mr.Silvers had alerted you to any bad blood between himself and Mr. Albetta.
Respondent’s Lawyer: He(Silvers) had indicated to you his distrust of Mr. Alberta.
Jimenez : When you say distress what are you could you explain.
Respondent’s lawyer: Let me withdraw the question. If you can’t answer the question the way I’m asking it just let me know and I will rephrase it not a problem. Silvers had already alerted you to his belief that Mr. Albetta was not a truthful person isn’t that correct.
Jimenez: Regarding his (Albetta’s) sexuality
Respondent’s lawyer: it was your belief that his indication that Mr. Albetta was not truthful only dealt with Mr. Albetta’s sexuality.
Jimenez: If a person has a certain sexual orientation and doesn’t want to make it public to me necessarily that person is not untruthful they just don’t want to make their sexual orientation public. Now what I understood from Mr.Silvers was this man has these inclinations and doesn’t make it– and you know he pretends to be a real man and he not. That what I understood from his constant– it was more than once it was continually– I mean always saying This guy’s not a man. He’s not a real man. He hangs out with his boy him and his boy they’re going to the bar. I mean so to me him saying Mr. Albetta was not truthful was that he was not coming out and expressing his true person, not that he was not truthful in the sense that he lies and makes up stories. That was not the case.
Respondent’s lawyer: Mr.Silvers ever specifically said to you I think Mr. Albetta is gay
Respondent’s lawyer: Did he (Mr.Silvers) ever use the words gay, homosexual bisexual in referring to Mr. Albetta?
The only person that seems to have a problem with Mr. Albetta’s sexuality is Principal David Jimenez
