Description

"This investigation exposed abuse of a taxpayer-funded day care system by a nonprofit corporation that held an exclusive state contract to help poor families find child care in Memphis." The investigation found that the day care had "leased property from its executive director through a dubious arrangement that resulted in a half-million dollars in rent overcharges over five years."
