Yet another public school official got his hand caught in it. “Former Poway Superintendent John Collins agreed to pay $185,000 to the school district, and struck a plea bargain that reduced four felony charges of misusing public funds to a misdemeanor charge of failing to disclose outside income,” Deborah Sullivan Brennan reported in The San Diego Union Tribune. “Collins was accused of inappropriately taking more than $345,000 from the Poway Unified School District, and faced a potential maximum of seven years in custody, through criminal and civil cases against him.”

How many stories such as this one have we read? When will they end?
