Missing money, misspent funds

October 14, 2012

If we're talking about money the city school system has misspent, lost or is unable to account for, this shouldn't be news to Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake ("School audit upsets mayor," Oct. 11).

Before winning office as mayor she had been on the City Council since she was first elected in 1995 — the youngest person to hold the office up to that time — so being a veteran city politician I'm sure she remembers 2004, when $58 million was unaccounted for.

At the time, the idea was floated to furlough teachers three days to make the loss. Don't you love Baltimore politics?
