CrashtheTeaParty founder Jason Levin gets his job back

For a while, the only impact of CrashtheTeaParty.org looked to be the effect it had on Beaverton, Ore. teacher Jason Levin's career. After doing interviews to promote his ill-advised project -- getting liberal plants to out-crazy tea party activists at their own events -- he was suspended. But he's back on the job. Fox News reports:

Jason Levin was taken off administrative leave at Conestoga Middle School on Monday while the Beaverton, Ore., School District’s internal investigation continues, said district spokeswoman Maureen Wheeler.

“He is not a danger to students, and the District has not found evidence that he has been sharing his political viewpoints with students,” Wheeler said...

Now all Levin, who I can't reach at the moment, has to contend with is the rumor that he has a secret life as an NBC News investigator of sexual predators.
