Crystal Simmons, the principal for Academy for Social Action in New York City, is facing being fired after it was revealed that she had an affair with her assistant principal, Candy Jones. The New York Daily News reports:
Crystal Simmons, founding principal of the Academy for Social Action, turned to officials for help after her former lover, Candy Jones, threatened to murder her, according to a report released Friday by the city Education Department.
Jones is accused of threatening to kill Simmons after being asked to resign, telling another school employee that “it was easy to purchase a gun down south” and that her father “had already purchased one,” the report says.
Jones told investigators that she was only joking about an article involving a female corrections officer who gunned down her female lover, comparing her situation to that one.
