Yeshiva deal has fraud written all over it

No wonder Steve Silverman is so against the county Inspector General investigating Montgomery Public School operations.

The Yeshiva deal he helped engineer for crooked lobbyist Jack Abramoff has scandal written all over it.

Continuing the Yeshiva story, the Washington Post reports, "The contract allowed Yeshiva to bill the full $9.9 million regardless of the renovation costs and to use the leftover taxpayer money as it wished. The school system awarded the contract without competitive bidding and waived rights to inspect the project."
