A complaint has been filed against Clark County School District Superintendent Dr. Jesus Jara over money he spent on an exercise bike.

The complaint was filed by Steve Sanson and the Veterans In Politics group, according to Las Vegas Review-Journal .

A month before the district asked schools to slash their budget because of a $17 million deficit, Dr. Jara asked to be paid back for a $2,400 exercise bike as part of his health and wellness benefit.

The complaint alleges Jara's salary is large enough for him to afford the bike on his own.
