Weast reclaimed the school, but found another one for Abramoff

Superintendent Jerry Weast reclaimed the school from Jack Abramoff's group in 2001, but MCPS and county officials found another public school for the crooked lobbyist.

In order to conceal the deal from the public, "[County Executive Doug] Duncan had a bill introduced in the council to exempt the transaction from a review mechanism instituted after the Belt transaction," according to the Washington Post.
