North Central Community Action Rips-Off Taxpayers and Poor

This week the Marshfield News Herald reported on issues at the North Central Community Action Program, based in Wisconsin Rapids.
A state-directed audit conducted by Madison-based accounting firm Jefferson Wells recommended the immediate dismissal of NCCAP Executive Director Ron Schnyder.
Among the problems found in the NCCAP audit reported by the News Herald:
Organization money was used to pay fines to halt arrest warrants, to settle drunken-driving court fees and to pay an employee's home loans.
In addition, auditors reported that Executive Director Ron Schnyder did not take any apparent disciplinary action against an employee who was convicted of fifth-offense drunken driving after an Oct. 20 incident involving a company vehicle, according to the 21-page report. Instead, Schnyder signed a responsibility agreement for police to release both the employee -- who previously had served more than five years in prison for a 1992 drunken driving crash that killed a 9-year-old girl in Weston -- and the vehicle into his custody.
Two months later, authorities arrested the employee at a Wausau tavern for felony bail jumping, according to Marathon County Circuit Court records.

I called Lassa's Office about this at the time...still waiting for a call back...
