University Professors Accused

Two University of Minnesota professors have been accused of collecting two salaries. According to a Star Tribune article, the pair moved to Minneapolis in January from Georgia Tech but have been collecting salaries from both schools.
Francois Sainfort and Julie Jacko, who are husband and wife, work in health informatics, the article said.
"The couple were making a total of just over $400,000 a year at Georgia Tech; their Minnesota salaries top $500,000," the article said.
The case is under investigation by the Georgia attorney general.
On top of the salaries, the couple allegedly had expense reports from Georgia Tech and travel reimbursement from the University of Minnesota.
Another article in the Pioneer Press said, "So far, Georgia Tech said it has identified about $100,000 in questionable spending, all from private funding sources."
