FBI Investigates No-Bid Contracts

Chicago's School CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett resigned today amidst an FBI investigation of a $20.5 no-bid contract by Chicago Schools with SUPES Academy, her former employer.
It would appear that 18 U.S.C. 666 and other federal laws may apply to that no-bid contract, and others here in St. Augustine, including those associated with our 405th commemoration. While some local government entities (like the School Board) swiftly and freely shared their no-bid contracts with me last year. Yet others are evasive, emotional, angry, avoidant and aberrant in response to Open Records request, some demanding to charge hundreds of dollars to look for them.
You will kindly recall how angry the "Gang of Four" on St. Augustine City Commission were when Mayor Nancy Shaver asked questions.
It's our money. What do they have to hide from "We, the People?"
