Former Obama adviser charged with stealing over $200k from school he founded

Seth Andrew, a former education advisor in Barack Obama’s administration, was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly stealing $218,005 from a public charter school network that he founded.

Andrew was arrested in New York City, where he and his wife, CBS News anchor Lana Zak, have a residence valued at more than $2 million, according to CNBC.

The allegation involved Andrew moving more than half of the money in the Democracy Prep Public Schools account to maintain a personal account minimum to receive a better interest rate on his home.
According to prosecutors, the events took place more than two years after Andrew ended his work with the charter school. He has been charged with making false statements to a financial institution, as well as wire fraud and money laundering, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York.
“As alleged, Seth Andrew abused his position as a founder of a charter school network to steal from the very same schools he helped create,” Manhattan U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss said in a statement.
Democracy Prep Schools Chief Executive Officer Natasha Trivers said Andrew left the network in 2013 and his alleged “actions are a profound betrayal of all that we stand for and to you and your children, the scholars and families that we serve. To be clear, at no time did the alleged crimes pose any risk to our students, staff or operations in any way,” according to the Associated Press.

She added: “The network’s finances remain strong, and at no time did any of the activity by Seth Andrew have any adverse effect on our scholars or the functioning of our schools.”

The charges carry a maximum possible prison term of 30 years.

A judge ordered Andrew released on a $500,000 personal recognizance bond on Tuesday. Andrew is scheduled to appear in court on May 27.

Google pay 390$ reliably my last paycheck was $55000 working 10 hours out of consistently on the web. My increasingly youthful kinfolk mate has been averaging 20k all through continuous months and he works around 24 hours reliably. I can’t trust how direct it was once I attempted it out. This is my essential concern…:) For more info visit any tab on this site Thanks a lot GOOD LUCK………._ http://www.works91.com

Damn right. Let’s start with Biden and that piece of work son of his. The democrats think they can do whatever they want including acts of treason and get away with it. The Teflon Don syndrome died with John Gotti.
It is time to force the prosecution of all of the criminals involved in politics including the Bidens, Clintons and the rest of today’s crime families.

He was probably doing it while under Obama’s watch, but no one cared then because he was an Obamaite. Well we care now. So hopefully equal justice will be applied.

Just admit it. The whole Dem party is corrupt as well as the RINOs. We maybe have 5% of our representation actually operating honorably.

This is what the demoncRATs have been doing to us for years. Someone needs to follow the money that the mayor’s wife 0f NY (De Blasio) did with the millions of dollars given to her for her fake organization.

FOLLOW the money not fake charges against America’s mayor.
