Letter to the Editor
Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

After reading about the heinous cases of alleged financial abuse involving the Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School and several Greensburg Salem School District administrators, I felt someone should be commended for his diligence in rooting out these allegedly fraudulent acts. Unfortunately, that someone is not a state auditor or state legislator.

The thanks should go out to the informants who bravely helped uncover these alleged acts — because if it weren't for them, the alleged fraud committed in these two cases would probably continue to this day.

It's shameful that our state officials were asleep at the wheel in both cases, and it makes me wonder how many similar acts of this nature are occurring. It's time for constituents to demand better of their public watchdogs.
