Corrupt Democrat, Janet Napolitano, was absolutely blasted at the California legislature for her alleged actions of plotting against a state audit and running a smear campaign to prevent the uncovering of hidden cash.
California State Auditor Elaine Howle kicked off the extraordinary five-hour joint session of the California Senate and Assembly with the assertion that the UC Office of the President interfered with her work by intercepting audit surveys sent to campus leaders, and requesting respondents to change answers to reflect more positively on management before they were returned.
The hearing was called after Howle’s office issued a 167-page audit that bluntly stated the UC president’s office had “Failed to Disclose Tens of Millions in Surplus Funds, and Its Budget Practices Are Misleading.” Auditors alleged that Napolitano, who previously served as Secretary of Homeland Security under President Barack Obama, raised tuitions while her office was hiding $175 million.
Howle also concluded that Napolitano’s office systematically overcharged the 10 campuses to fund its bloated staff of 1,700; spent excessively on employee compensation and executive performance bonuses; and then kept the existence of the $175 million secret reserve when the university’s regents voted on her request to raise tuition by 2.7 percent next year.
According to the East Bay Times, the State Auditor summed up her testimony by stating, “In my 17 years as state auditor, we have never had a situation like this.”
