Submission + - School District Threatening Newspaper Over Article Detailing Money Mismanagement (themonitor.com)

FutureDomain writes: The Weslaco Texas School District is threatening the Monitor, a local newspaper for running a story detailing financial mismanagement by the school district. According to the Monitor, investigations by state authorities and a confidential memo reveal that the school district siphoned off $2 million dollars from the school employee's health insurance fund and used it to build a press box at a high school stadium, violating Texas labor law. The school district has threated to take “any legal action necessary to preserve its rights.” unless the Monitor removes the article.
