In the usual multi-layered, hush-hush way of the slow crawl of USA Swimming scandals, multiple sources have told Concussion Inc. that Brandon Drawz has been “investigated” in the wake of our reports on him, and “not enough has been found” to warrant action.
Which is nonsense, and anyone who has read our 100 percent accurate and on-the-record stories about Drawz knows it. Drawz was let go by the Mt. Hood (Oregon) junior college district because of financial improprieties and conflicts of interest — but not before sucker-punching an elderly and beloved coach during an on-deck argument, and then getting arrested in a drunken domestic violence incident (during which he at tried to impersonate, first a police officer, and then a social worker). The latter happened while he was in charge of Mt. Hood’s youth swimmers at a national meet in Indianapolis.
Drawz is also a former principal with the criminally fraudulent National Swimming Center Corporation, which specialized in scamming municipalities into underwriting developments. He was recently dumped as executive director of SwimMAC in North Carolina — but USA Swimming chief Chuck Wielgus keeps propping him up and pushing him into leadership roles in the organization. One of them is with the group’s phony brand of eyewash known as the “Safe Sport” program.
