A senior construction manager living in Summit, NJ? Yea, this guy probably could have made $321,000 in less than 3 years.

Sad if it's true.

The article says that the fraternity won't say why they're sueing instead of pressing criminal charges ...because they want their effing money back, duh! They're not getting their money back if he's in prison (living better than the guys in their house probably are).

Another reason why to have your books audited yearly. The "left" hand needs to know what the "right" hand is doing.

This is why I never, ever, ever touch any of the money…EVER. Period. That's all I have to say.
