A new U.S. Justice Department audit found that nearly two-thirds of the money that a local nonprofit got through Rep. Chaka Fattah's earmarks was questionably spent, including $346,394 paid to its director, who had previously worked for Fattah (D., Pa.) for 10 years.Chaka Fattah is so "public spirited" with other people's money.
The audit last week by the Justice Department's Office of the Inspector General said Raymond T. Jones, the one-man staff of Philadelphia Safety Net, repeatedly gave himself raises without board approval.
"Specifically," the audit said, "we question $346,394 of the . . . executive director's compensation as unreasonable, unsupported, and partially unallowable."
