The state Attorney-General’s investigation into the operation of the Scranton School District kicked into high gear Tuesday with the release of a grand jury presentment detailing the ways in which the district’s fleet manager allegedly fleeced city taxpayers. Aided and abetted by at least one other unnamed co-conspirator, the state accuses Dan Sansky of raking in thousands of dollars through double-billings and phony invoices.

The presentment itself is worth a read, detailing as it does the buddy-buddy, wink-and-nod style of corruption for which NEPA is famous. One of my favorite bits — where he advised a district employee to cover a vehicle’s “CHECK ENGINE” light with electrical tape — strongly suggests that in addition to being an alleged thief, Sansky wasn’t much of a mechanic.
