Has Janey misappropriated funds?

This could be big.
D.C.’s finance office is investigating why funds donated to help the District’s neediest school children paid for lavish meals for Superintendent Clifford Janey.

“This issue is currently under review and no comments [will be made] until the review is completed,” finance office spokeswoman Maryann Young wrote in an e-mail to The Examiner.

The finance office has frozen all payments out of the fund while the investigation is pending, schools’ lawyer Karen Jones Herbert said.

The investigation began after The Examiner reported that Janey had been reimbursed for thousands of dollars at D.C. restaurants from the Interest Investment fund.
