Highlights of the video are:
Former LAUSD Inspector General Don Mullinax said he was disappointed after having spent almost three years of his life working on the Belmont Learning Center Report with the District Attorney’s Belmont Task Force, and there was no prosecution.
Anthony Patchett, head of the D.A.’s investigation on Belmont said “Don Mullinax did an outstanding job. He found a lot of fraud and corruption. It’s just the fact that when he took those cases to the District Attorney’s office, they chose not to go forward with them. They’ll go ahead and they’ll prosecute the small crimes under $15,000, but for the other crimes that Mr. Mullinax has found, they still have that blind eye towards that”.
Investigator Karen Sexton describes how an adult school contractor and other individuals were never prosecuted when the Inspector General’s investigation found classes that didn’t exist, ghost students and people working double assignments. She said the only outcome was “the contractor no longer works for the District because his contract was not renewed.”
Bob Williams, Acting Deputy Inspector General,said “the BB Bond investigation resulted in auditors finding $600 million that was spent on different things that went to the actual contractors as opposed to the projects.” When asked what the outcome of BB Bond investigation was, he said “the outcome basically, was nothing.”
