The Charlotte Conservative News article Sharron Angle’s political activism started in the Home School movement once again uses her background to move her story up the search engine searches, playing off a George Will commentary in the Washington Post about her homeschooling her son which appeared July 4: Candidate nobody is not to be underestimated:
“Her campaign began, in a sense, three decades ago, when a judge annoyed her.
“When her son was depressed about having to repeat kindergarten — “He was a 6-year-old dropout” — she decided on home schooling, which Nevada law permitted. But a judge construed the law to require that parents who home-school must live at least 50 miles from a public school.
“She and many kindred spirits descended on Carson City to get the Legislature to correct this. One legislator, irritated by such grass-roots impertinence, said, “If I’d known there would be 500 people here instead of 50 and it would take five hours instead of 30 minutes, I would have thrown it [the legislation] in my drawer, and it would never have seen the light of day.” Angle asked a cowboy standing next to her, “Can he do that?” The cowboy said yep. She has been politically incandescent ever since.”
