Executive summary: School superintendent of San Francisco

First female superintendent of San Francisco's public schools, selected by mayor Willie Brown. Took the SF school district for every penny, enjoying a large salary and questionable perks while the city's schools were closed down and teachers laid off. When forced to step down from her position after questions about use of the district's credit card, she exercised a clause in her contract allowing her to walk away with a huge portion of the school district's remaining funds. Following that, she applied for unemployment compensation.
