This would explain why the school officials and District Attorneys are silent on fraudulent STAR tax exemptions being theft from school taxes. It not about the money.

The Trials Giving Steve Levy Nightmares | Long Island Press

This case was small potatoes for the Westhampton Beach attorney, a mere four counts. The worst one is still to come: a 130-count indictment charging Guldi and a handful of others with $82 million in mortgage fraud that links S&M dominatrices in SoHo to real-estate hijinks in the Hamptons.
