Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee is being investigated by the D.C. office of Campaign Finance to see if she broke any laws over the $65 million raised for the new teacher's contract.
Robert Brannum, president of the D.C. Federation of Civic Associations and a frequent critic of Rhee. He filed a complaint alleging Rhee broke the law when she asked private foundations for money for the union contract, that have reserved the right to pull funding if there is a change in leadership. Brannum alleges this directly benefited the chancellor.
The Chancellor's office denies there was any personal benefit. There will be an investigation. A ruling is expected in three months.
