PHILADELPHIA (AP) - An associate of the convicted son of a former Philadelphia congressman has been charged with ripping off the Philadelphia School District and using the money to pay nannies, housekeepers and contractors for improvements at his home and vacation condo.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports (https://bit.ly/2dccmj0 ) David Shulick is accused of skimming funds from a $2.1 million contract his former company had to run an alternative school.

He’s the ex-president of the now-defunct for-profit education firm with ties to Chaka “Chip” Fattah Jr.

The indictment, filed in federal court Tuesday, alleges Shulick drafted false budgets for the Bala Cynwyd-based Delaware Valley High School Management Corp.

His lawyer is balking at the allegations and pins the blame on Fattah.

Fattah is serving a prison term for misspending loans and some of the nearly $1 million in education funds he got as a school management subcontractor.
