“PHILADELPHIA — Federal investigators are questioning a discontinued scholarship program founded by a Pennsylvania congressman.
“The Philadelphia Inquirer reported Sunday that investigators are asking about the use of federal grants given to College Opportunity Resources for Education, or CORE Philly.
“The program was set up by Rep. Chaka Fattah four years ago but is ending after next spring. He says the investigation was about a $700,000 grant from the Justice Department to cover staffing, computers and more.
“Fattah believes interest in the inquiry increased because of complaints from a disgruntled employee.
“He has said he’s ending the program because of a subsidy cut. ”
Nowhere is it disclosed in the article that Fattah is a Democrat.
