Jeff Allen (in background) laughs as he and his wife Patti Allen discuss the political dynamics in their home. She is a registered Democrat and he is a registered Republican. Patti said their children were always exposed to both sides of political issues in their home, describing herself as more liberal than conservative and her husband as a conservative. Their son Sean, 16, a student at Overland High School is in a flap for having released a recording of his geography teacher Jay Bennish making politically-charged comments during class. The teacher has been placed on paid administrative leave by the school district. Patti, a self-described public school advocate, says the incident has nothing to do with politics but is about a teacher crossing the line. She's tired of her family being portrayed as a bunch of right wing zealots. They spoke from their Aurora home Sunday afternoon , March 5, 2006.(DENNIS SCHROEDER/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS) **Patti (cq) and Jeff Allen (cq)
