Student Loan Scandal Widens to Include U.S. Education Department Official Matteo Fontana
The NY Times reported again today on the growing scandal in the student loan business. Matteo Fontana, a senior official in the federal Education Department, sold more than $100,000 in shares in Student Loan Xpress even as he was helping oversee lenders in the federal student loan program. Yesterday, the Times reported that student loan officers at Columbia, UCLA and University of Texas, Austin, apparently were allowed to profit in stock of Student Loan Xpress in return for giving the crooked loan company preferred status on their campuses. Here's a link to today's NYT article by Jonathan Glater and Karen W. Arenson:
