Chicago Sun Times - Members of a prominent Chicago-based sorority are suing to oust their national president — former Chicago Housing Authority comptroller Barbara McKinzie — saying she misappropriated funds and commissioned a $900,000 wax figure of herself.

She also is accused of taking nearly $400,000 for personal expenses and arranging for a $4,000 monthly stipend to be paid to herself after she leaves office.

What happened to good old fashioned hazing? If this lady wanted a wax statue of herself so bad, she could have commissioned a local chapter to mold it for free. And don’t tell me that she wanted a “professional job done.” Her sculptor, against all odds, has somehow managed to create a fatter version of this woman. Who drops $900,000 on themselves and doesn’t expect a paper trail?
