The worst kind of Supe

What kind of guy can go from being state superintendent of the year to an indicted fellow who may be facing four years in the slammer?

Try former Capistrano Unified Superintendent James Fleming.

Last August, Fleming (once the highest-paid education chief in all the Orange land), retired amid accusations he'd created "enemies lists" of his political foes and used public funds to meddle in an election. The charges, filed under seal mid-May, were unsealed just yesterday.

Check out the indictment, the lists and other documents over at the Times.

Also charged: former assistant superintendent Susan McGill.
