Dems Question $250,000 in Bonuses for Gov Official
The White House appointee in charge of the Education Department's troubled financial aid office took home $250,000 in bonuses, leading Democratic lawmakers to question what she did to deserve such lavish rewards.

"Given that the student loan programs became increasingly rife with conflicts of interest and unethical practices" during the four years Theresa Shaw served as chief operating officer of the Federal Student Aid office, "it is questionable whether these bonuses were justified," House Education Committee Chairman George Miller, D.-Calif., told ABC News. The bonuses were first reported by Government Executive magazine.

From 2003 to 2006, the department awarded Shaw with annual bonuses ranging from $60,000 to $71,250, the magazine reported Tuesday.

Shaw stepped down from her post last week after her office was rocked by several scandals and investigators began to scrutinize its operations.
