Another Republican Criminal?

So Dr. Sandra Dowling is being investigated for "bid rigging, nepotism, malfeasance of office and misuse of public funds."

And she's Republican. Shocking, that.

East Valley Tribune: Criminal inquiry targets head of county schools
"The Maricopa County school superintendent is under criminal investigation after a renowned school she founded for homeless children had a budget deficit of $4 million."

And we thought the bad ol' days were over when Ev Mecham, Fife Symington, and Jim Wright all got run out of office. It never ends with these holy-rolling Repugs...
"Dowling, a Republican, is the second county officeholder to be investigated in two years.

Former County Assessor Kevin Ross, also a Republican, was convicted in December 2004 of conflict of interest."

The beautiful part of this investigation is Dowling was a typical public-school-hater. Like most RightWingNuts, though, her charter-home-alternative school advocacy turns out to be for a simple reason: greed.

Stealing from the homeless school she helped found.
