University of California president Janet Napolitano stashed away $175 million in a secret slush fund while publicly beating the drum for tuition and fee increases. Napolitano interfered with state auditors, prompting UC students and workers to call for her arrest and Democratic legislators to demand her resignation. For their part, the UC regents publicly defended Napolitano, and it has now emerged how the regents responded to students and worker protests.
The night of the protest, May 17, CBS News reported, the regents threw a $15,199 party at San Franciscos elegant Palace Hotel for 59 people a $258-a-head event also billed to the university. Back in January, the night before they voted to raise tuition, the regents hosted a $17,600 banquet, one of many such events in recent years.
While planning to jack up tuition 28 percent in 2014, the regents threw an $8,000 party, and the year before, during a financial crisis, they blew $15,600 on a feast. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Napolitanos office has reimbursed the regents for more than $225,000 in dinner parties since 2012. What the regents have to celebrate remains unclear to many observers.
State auditor Elaine Howle not only uncovered the presidents $175 million slush fund, she also questioned the performance of the regents in their oversight of Napolitanos office. The state auditor recommended that the legislature could increase accountability by taking over the regents job. True to form, the regents found no fault whatsoever with president Napolitano.
One of president Napolitanos favorite projects is the UC Davis Firearms Violence Research Center, which will receive its first $5 million on July 1. According to director Garen Wintemute, the Centers first task will be will be a survey that looks at who owns guns, why they own them and how they use firearms. They want the names, and Californians have good cause to find this troubling.
As Stephen P. Halbrook noted in Gun Control in the Third Reich: Disarming the Jews and Enemies of the State, the Nazis also wanted to know who owns guns and they ruthlessly suppressed firearm ownership by disfavored groups. At the University of California, that means conservatives.

Corrupt as ever.
Janet is a poster girl of how libs take over institutions and so called no profits and rape the taxpayers for their benefit and fellow thugs/aka rapists of taxpayers.
It would be interesting to see how much tuition for California students has gone up per since Janet came in.
The second point, has the % of out of state students increased since Janet has been raping the Cal U system.
If by chance Janet Napolitano tracks in enough dirt that
the California newspapers can no longer prop her up then
she will be granted a huge golden parachute, hailed as
an educational super star and replaced with another
