Could we for once, just once ...

NOT hire a corrupt official?

"Federal officials are investigating whether the D.C. Board of Education's executive director of charter schools funneled federal funds to personal acquaintances working with the schools that she helped monitor, according to sources with knowledge of the investigation.

They also are reviewing records to see whether Brenda L. Belton reaped any financial benefit from more than $350,000 paid to a private company to provide technical assistance to charter schools, sources said. The company was located in a building that Belton once owned and that is currently owned by her daughter, said sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the investigation."

Funds May Have Been Directed to Friends
