Robert Bobb, the emergency financial manager for Detroit Public Schools, is doing the job nobody, especially the School Board and its administrators, would do: routing out fraud and corruption.
The Detroit Free Press reports today that a payroll audit revealed 257 ghosts on the payroll. A ghost employee is what it sounds like - they are not a real person. They exist only for someone else to collect the paycheck. This is a routine procedure when payroll fraud is suspected in any business, and it looks like it succeeded spectacularly.
Can't wait to see what else comes out on this one.
