By Manuel Quinones

A newly released Congressional report says D.C. School Chancellor Michelle Rhee was involved in dealing with allegations of sexual misconduct against her fiance, Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson.

The report, by a Republican Senator and Congressman, concerns the firing of a federal inspector general who was investigating Johnson's actions when he led a Sacramento charter school. Johnson allegedly misused government money and was accused of improper sexual conduct by female students.

A former school employee says Rhee played the role of a fixer, doing damage control after the allegations surfaced. She was a school board member at the time.

A spokeswoman for Rhee says the report rehashes old allegations that have long been dismissed and only mentions the chancellor in one paragraph out of more than sixty pages.
