(Harrisburg) -- Auditor General Eugene DePasquale has given information to the FBI about the spending practices of a Pittsburgh charter school that one TV station says include taxpayer-paid meals at expensive restaurants and retreats at ritzy resorts.
DePasquale's spokesman said Monday the office gave the information on Urban Pathways to the FBI in the spring. The spokesman, Barry Ciccocioppo says the FBI responded that it would follow up.
The FBI didn't immediately return a call seeking comment Monday, nor did Urban Pathways CEO Linda Clautti. But she tells KDKA-TV that the education and needs of students are Urban Pathways' top priority.
Among other things, KDKA's review of the charter school's bills found Pennsylvania taxpayers paid nearly $15,000 for architects and consultants on a new Urban Pathways school in Ohio.
