Ex-Georgia Superintendent Wants Retirement Funds Returned

ATLANTA (AP) – A former Georgia schools superintendent who was convicted of stealing more than $600,000 in state public education funds is seeking some of her retirement money back.      Linda Schrenko said in a court filing this week to the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that the government “illegally forwarded, seized and retained” about $195,000 of her retirement funds.

Prosecutors say Schrenko and a computer firm owner stole more than $600,000 in federal education money geared toward programs for honors students and two schools for the deaf. They say some went to Schrenko’s failed GOP gubernatorial campaign in 2002 and another $9,300 went toward a facelift.

She was sentenced to eight years in federal prison in 2006 after she struck a plea bargain in the middle of her trial.

    She must be off her meds, this is the equivalent of me banking @ Sun Trust Bank, I have a savings account with them with 25K in it..I then decided to rob them of 600K, whereby I decided to take a plea deal and do a shorter prison sentence, in essence pleading guilty of the theft…Now while cooling my heels my prison, I got a wild idea and decided that i’m going to ask the bank to give me back my 25K deposit after I robbed them of 600K and was convicted for that theft..Does anyone else see the nerve of this white woman in asking back for her retirement savings of 195K after she robbed these people of 600K? Only white people have no moral compunction and feel they can get away with their crimes where 90% of the time, skin supremacy will be in their favor…
