Description

WFAA-TV (Fort Worth) reveals school district's transportation superintendent and others wasted $500,000 of taxpayer funds for purchase of unnecessary equipment and other items. The information was obtained through use of computers to analyze district financial records. Results of the investigation led to a prison sentence for the district's director of transportation and financial restitution paid to the district by two former superintendents and several vendors.
