As Joe Patrice reports on Abovethelaw, two former Harvard Law School administrators are accused of embezzling from an account set aside for students with disabilities. They are Meg DeMarco and Darris Saylors. Both currently have other jobs in academic institutions.
The thousands of dollars allegedly were spent on frills such as iPads and X-rated material.
The irregularities weren't detected until a new accountant had been hired. Patrice hammers that age-old question about embezzlement in top-tier institutions: How could this have happened.
The concrete question we ask is: Why didn't the original accountant pick up on this? Those entrusted to oversee Harvard University should be asking the same thing.
Reflection: I attended an inner city public high school in pre-gentrified Jersey City, New Jersey. Guilt was assumed. Miscreants got detected and removed from their positions pronto. The ethos was not one of trust.
