If this is not criminal, what is?

In the Journal this morning, link, a report on the 2015 state audit of Albuquerque Public Schools.

Among the findings;

A disbursement of about $1 million to a single vendor was broken up into 17 different invoices. This shielded the disbursement from board scrutiny because no single invoice exceeded $250,000 – the threshold for a board vote.
How can this not be criminal?

Why is no one going to be held accountable for criminal misconduct?

Why is the Journal under-reporting the truth?  Again?
And again, and again?

Journal Managing Editor
Karen Moses is yet to respond
to my point blank question;
Does the Journal admit to and 
accept an obligation to comply 
with the SPJ code of Ethics?

Nor has she responded to my
complaint that she and the
Journal are not being honest
with readers, when they fail
to disclose their relationships with Marty Esquivel.

School board enforcer Mary Esquivel
Their yet to be disclosed conflict of interests clearly colored Journal coverage of the scandal Esquivel created; the spending of more than 3/4s of a million dollars on a cost-is-no-object defense of his ego.  The board negligently allowed, or knowingly permitted completely unjustified spending in one board member's self interests, and the Journal is hiding the truth from voters.
