Naturally. Chicagoland, cesspool of corruption.
Via Free Beacon:
Chicago Public Schools employees engaged in improper political activity, stole kids’ museum passes to sell online, smoked marijuana with students, and stole money meant for cheerleader uniforms, according to a year-long review.
The school system’s inspector general released its annual report on Monday. The report offers a summary of investigations conducted by the inspector general in fiscal year 2015, which included the uncovering of a multi-million-dollar fraudulent kickback scheme by Barbara Byrd-Bennett, the school system’s CEO
The inspector general also found that teachers abused their access to make tax-exempt purchases for big-screen televisions, iPads, and DVD boxed sets of The Three Stooges.
Twelve teachers and a school nurse made $101,500 worth of tax-free purchases at a big-box retailer using the school system’s tax-exempt status. Most of the purchases were for personal items, including home-theater systems, tablets, cell phones, and refrigerators.
One teacher spent $5,100, including $1,100 for a MacBook Air, $300 for an iPhone, $800 for a television, and seasons of Breaking Bad, which he justified as being able to show to his students in class.
